The second of the Eye Candy Effects Collection is EC5: Nature. The reason why this particular filter set is called Nature, is because the filters recreate fire, ice, smoke, snow, rust, and water effects such as ripples and drops. The effects are very realistic, as illustrated below. A wide spectrum of settings for each Nature filter is possible, so creating unique effects for each image is certain.

Eye Candy 5: Nature Features

Some of the new features of Eye Candy 5: Nature:

  • Four new filters: Icicles, Rust, Ripples, and Snow Drift
  • Melt and Drip have been combined
  • Water drops are more realistic, "pooling" together more naturally
  • Fire and Smoke can be applied to their own layers
  • Corona adds a gradient editor (as well as Fire)
