Fluoron: A single plug-in for use with Photoshop-compatible host applications. It is based on a kind of ultra-violet/fluorescent style colour shift but also offers many other variations for interesting and unusual results. The filter is not meant to reproduce any real-world colour wavelenths, it is only intended for artistic effect and fun experimental conversions. Also the range it produces depends on the original photographs used, plus the RGB balance settings within the plug-in itself. It offers a nice quick method for creating vibrant and dynamic images when you need something with a bit more impact! Works well on photos of landscape and architecture but can also produce interesting results with many other types of images too. Feature Overview ...
