Alien Skin Software on Tuesday announced the release of Universal binary updates to their Photoshop plug-ins, including Snap Art, Eye Candy 5: Textures, Eye Candy 5: Nature, Eye Candy 5: Impact, Xenofex 2, Image Doctor and Splat.

The updates are free for anyone who purchase the plug-ins after January 1, 2007, otherwise they cost US$19.99 each for up to three titles -- beyond that, the updates are free of charge.

The updates are compatible with Adobe's Photoshop CS3, according to Alien Skin, and provide "a significant performance increase" on Intel-based Macs.
