Andromeda Software has released a new Photoshop plug-in for Mac and Windows that aims to bring back the “classic old printing look” of steel etching. The EtchTone filter combines a black-&-white etch pattern with the original image to create a continuous tone screen. Users can set the filter to either overlay the etch or blend the etch into your image. It works with Grayscale, RGB or CMYK images and includes controls to adjust the amount of steel etch and to adjust the original image sharpness, brightness and contrast.
