The Plugin Site (www.ThePluginSite.com) has announced FilterHub, a panel extension for Photoshop CS4, CS5, CS5.5 and CS6, which runs under Mac OS X and Windows.
FilterHub is a replacement for Photoshop’s Filter menu. It supports built-in Photoshop filters (from the Filter and Adjustments menus), filter plugins and third-party automation plugins.
With FilterHub your filters are only one click (or a double click) away. The FilterHub panel stays open as long as you wish and displays a configurable list of filters and plugins. You can make it display all filters, show only third-party plugins, enter key words to display only certain filters or add your preferred filters to a favorites list.
FilterHub costs US$39.95; an academic license is $14.95. A 14-day-trial version can be downloaded from http://thepluginsite.com/products/filterhub/ .
