Alien Skin's Black Box 2.0 set of Photoshop compatible filters for Macintosh, 68k and PPC. The final release of the Alien Skin series to work on 68k Macintosh. Later versions of these plug-ins were sold under the renamed title, "Eye Candy".

A quote from MacWeek, August 1995:

If you want to add more flourish to your images or illustrations, but lack the skill to create graphic effects, you'll find The Black Box 2.0 from Alien Skin Software LLC very helpful...

...Version 2 can be used within Photoshop 2.5 (Photoshop 3 for work within layers) or MicroFrontier Inc.'s Color It! 3.0. The Black Box requires Mac OS 7.1 and 2 Mbytes of RAM (on top of the RAM required to run the host application). The plug-ins are Power Mac-native and install as a fat-binary application.

Thanks go to Protocol 7 for locating this rare set of filters.
