I hope you enjoyed this chapter. It was more of a reading and visual adventure than a hands-on experience. I wanted to use this time to give you an idea of what's available out there in the way of plug-ins, rather than just walk you through one or two examples.
I hope that you got an idea of why the topic of filters, both built-in and third-party, is one of my favorites. Filters really are fun to play with and, more than that, they really can add to your images in many ways.
