In the primordial days before digital photography took over, photographers relied on physical filters to make special effects in their images. Even with digital, many good photographers can still be found with some of these handy accessories in order to touch up an image.

Tiffen, one of the leaders in the filter market has revised their software-based collection of filters and effects. DFX 2.0, by Tiffen, now includes more creative tools than ever before with more than 1000 new filters to tweak and adjust your images.

Available for either Photoshop, Aperture, Final Cut and more, the new software also includes masking and layering.
