Tiffen was once a big name in glass filters. Those days are back, but in digital form, with a range of filters, from film stocks and digital image clean-up tools, to texture and light overlays and optical effects.
The interface is clean and clear. There’s a preview image, effect groups and specific tools along the bottom showing an immediate preview of the effect. You also get a host of parameters on the right so the effect can be modified.
Effects can be stacked and blended together. For more control click on the Parameters tab to show each element
The film stocks cover the usual suspects from Fuji, Agfa and Kodak. Each element can be tweaked to create specific effects. Some of the tobacco sunset and rainbow effects may be best left to posterity, but there’s more variety than rival suites and, with 113 film stocks alone, plenty of useful ones.
