It’s our Q&A of the week!


You can find plug-ins for all manner of things these days. Some help you organise your workflow, some create abstract images, and some provide tools to rival Photoshop’s own.

Whether you’re looking to fix a photo or give a picture some kind of filter, plug-ins are useful at offering features Photoshop doesn’t. We often review the best ones on the market in Photoshop Creative, and the majority of plug-ins come with a free trial for you to test them out before you buy.

Every plug-in is different, but if you find one that creates a cool effect, it can be something worth investing in to help your work in the long-term. Be sure to search around for a plug-in if there’s something specific you need help with in Photoshop, or just keep your eye out for exciting ones on places like Creative Market and Envato.
