Alien Skin Software today introduced Xenofex 2, a new version of its popular special effects package for Photoshop, Fireworks, Paint Shop Pro, and other image editors. Xenofex 2 adds 14 more effects and “simulates spectacular natural phenomena, produces striking distortions, and instantly transforms photos.” Xenofex 2 will be available for Mac OS X late in the first quarter of 2003 for US$129.
