A collective set of Photoshop Plug-ins, Extensis PhotoTools 2.0.2 for Macintosh features seven productivity tools for Adobe Photoshop 3.0.4 and higher.

Aimed at less experienced users of Adobe Photoshop, Extensis PhotoTools 2.0 helps you create a variety of special effects. Photoshop pros may decide that many of the effects are just as easy to create without a separate plug-in, but more-mainstream users should find at least a few of the filters useful in day-to-day production work.

PhotoTools 2.0 lets you access its filters not only via a new menu it adds to Photoshop but also through the customizable PhotoBars it places in Photoshop's tool palettes. These iconic commands can trigger any Photoshop menu command, open files within Photoshop, open specific folders in the Finder, and bring the Finder to the foreground. Given that Adobe replaced the Commands palette with the less straightforward Actions palette in version 4.0, advanced Photoshop users will find PhotoBars a welcome addition.
