Boris FX Optics announces Adobe Photoshop Plugin

Boris FX Optics is now available as a plugin for Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Lightroom, and as a standalone application for macOS and Windows. The Optics toolkit features more than 150 filters and thousands of presets designed by VFX industry veterans to correct, to enhance, and to stylize images with an easy-to-use interface. The plugin can be purchased for only $9/month or $99/year.

“Optics marks the first collaboration between our DFT (Digital Film Tools) and Sapphire product teams,” delivering powerful digital photography tools for creative pros,” says Boris Yamnitsky, Boris FX, founder and CEO. “In addition to the staggering amount of lens filters, film looks, color, and masking tools, we’re thrilled to feature 75 handpicked filters from Sapphire’s high-end VFX suite. Photographers now have access to the same lens flares, glows, and lighting effects used on Hollywood blockbusters, TV shows, and music videos. The inclusion of Sapphire’s popular effects inside Photoshop provides a missing bridge between video and print design.”
