I was reading a Wacom email -- when lo and behold -- I read that there is a Plugin freebie from onOne Software!!!!! Click on today's post title and you'll end up on the onOne website.
After downloading it, I couldn't find it where it was supposed to be (between Window and Help on your top bar in Photoshop CS4 (x86 -- not the 64 bit version). So after searching their website -- I learned that there is a problem if you use Windows -- so you can find the plugin under File, Automate, Photo tools 2.0. Anyhoo, I tried the Digital Fill Flash effect, and it did a nice job brightening up my picture.
If you are a Photoshop user, check it out (who doesn't love a freebie)!
