I use photoshop elements 4.o and love creating all sorts of images. But I am looking for a plug-in that can help me create shiny surfaces, gold silver, pearl things like that. Does anyone know how I can do it and what I need for that?

Plugins for gold/silver/pearl effects

I use Eye Candy 4000. It has a variety of different polishing effects. It has gold silver, as well and a variety of beveling, both in and out. I also have Dream Suite Gel Series, that makes a wonderful glow effect, it takes some playing with, but in due time, you get the idea of it.

SuperBlade Pro can be used to create many, many different surfaces and textures. You need to make a selection of the area before you can apply the plug-in. There are hundreds of free presets available all over the internet, and the plug-in itself only costs $30......quite a bargain these days.

Hope this helps.

I have to agree re SuperBladePro. I use it ALL the time, even for print-quality work. IMO there's no better or easier way to get gold, silver, pearl or other effects. Btw, check out my free SBP presets at

(they're free for personal, noncommercial use)

Enjoy! I also sell commercial licenses if you ever want to use them for commercial work. I find SPB highly addictive ;-)!

Hugs,
Karen

Yes, that's me. It is funny how we all seem to cross paths every so often in this huge inter-web.. Amazing and fun actually!

You'll want to check out Path Styler Pro, which has advantages over Super Blade Pro.
