I do not think that the Photoshop Plugin Interface will allow such "brush plugins". However, if someone should find such a plugin, I would be glad to hear about it, too.

There's an application which allows to "brush" plugin effects on an image. It is called "SPG Colorworks:WEB" from

Actually this effect can be achieved rather easily by making a copy of the picture, applying the plugin, and then using a clone brush to touch up the areas where you want to apply the effect. The key here is to find a spot that you want to modify that you can use to "index" the clone brush so the effect is on the same area on both pictures. Once that is done, you can apply the effect where ever you want it and in the amounts you need.

Hope this could be helpfull: if working in Photoshop, duplicate your image to a new layer. Apply effects to the entire image in this new top layer and add a mask (activate the mask and fill it with black). You can use any brush (more or less white) to paint in the mask and reveil your effect.
Tip: add (for instance a drop shadow) Photoshop's Layer effect to the same layer. (layer effects follow masks) Enjoy.

Did something wrong posting. It's not my intention to be incognito.

PS: it's also fun to ad layer effects to an empty layer and start painting, while experimenting with blending modes. (needs a fast machine)

Painting in masks is also great for mixing pictures.

I've been courious about two software programs PhotoShop 6 and Elements, the other trial download Micrografx Picture Publisher 10 Professional. The Micrografx is a hands down killer product with a healing brush, programable image spray and paint plugin. I couldn't believe the$59.99 complete price, but it came in the boxed verison today.
Wow! It's just like Christmas :D :D :D
