Tiffen Dfx 2.0.2 Plug-In Editions for Adobe Photoshop
The Viewer, where you load and edit your main image, is surrounded by the other main components: Filters, Effects, and Presets (with Parameter settings). Along the bottom of the screen is where you find the various categories of Filters including Gels, Gradients and Tints, Film Lab processes, and Diffusion filters, among others. The Presets panel shows prebuilt variations of any filter that you select, allowing you to try and match Tiffen's optical filters. There's even a Custom setting that lets you save your personalized effects. You can also stack (layer) effects, while retaining the ability to control any effect individually.
The Dfx software adds EZ Mask, one of the easiest masking systems that I've ever used: Just draw a few loose lines around the border of the object(s) on which you want to focus and the software does an amazing job of determining what that selection should be.
The well-thought-out The Tiffen Dfx 2.0.2 Plug-In Editions has plenty of filter choices to match real-world glass. The inclusion of a PDF manual with more than 500 pages of examples and before-and-after shots, along with a reasonable price makes this package an easy recommendation for any photographer.

Enhanced User Interface
The Photoshop & Elements versions of Dfx now look and work like the Dfx Standalone version.
Filters can now be added as layers allowing you to add multiple filters to your image.
Seven different types of masks can be used to isolate where a filter will be applied. Gradient, Spot, Path, Snap, EZ Mask, Selection and Paint masks can be applied and combined together to form a cumulative mask.
Ambient creates light without a defined source and contributes to the overall brightness of a scene without casting shadows.
Simulates close-up lenses that allow you to zoom in extra close using high quality digital filtering.
Dots are circular lighting control devices used to create shadow areas on a motion picture or photographic set. This concept has been extended to a digital flag so that areas of the image can be selectively darkened.
Creates a targeted light to be placed around a person's eyes.
Flags are rectangular lighting control devices used to create shadow areas on a motion picture or photographic set. This concept has been extended to a digital flag so that areas of the image can be selectively darkened.
Gobo is similar to the Light filter except it uses Rosco gels and gobo patterns. The Rosco range presently includes over 1300 standard gobo designs in the following categories: Breakups, Foliage Breakups, Trees & Flowers, Abstract, Graphics, Graphics & Grills, Rotation, Symbols & Signs, World Around Us, Churches & Heraldics, Windows, Doors & Blinds, Boundaries & Wildlife, Clouds & Sky, Water & Sky, Fire & Ice, Architectural & Retail, Occasions & Holidays and Text.
Exciting and dazzling star effects are generated from original point or reflected light sources with the added glitter and sparkle of these exclusive, natural looking asymmetrical designs and shapes. Great for water scenes, candle flames, street lights and more.
Reduces excessive blue by absorbing UV light and eliminates haze which tends to wash out color and image clarity.
Creates an extreme high contrast image.
Ice halos are created when small ice crystals in the atmosphere generate halos by reflecting and refracting light. Most notably, circles form around the sun or moon as well as rare occurrences when the entire sky is painted with a web of arcing halos.
Recreates arced rainbows of spectral colors, usually identified as red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, and violet, that appear in the sky as a result of the refractive dispersion of sunlight in drops of rain or mist.
Creates a warm brown tone for that nostalgic feeling.
Reduces UV light, haze and is pink tinted for added warmth and better colors. It is especially useful for images shot in outdoor open shade and on overcast days.
Soft Contrast diminishes highlights while retaining the darker look of the shadows.
Provides soft, digitally diffused and virtually shadowless light.
