Alien Skin Eye Candy’s primary application objects contain various design tasks, such as font, logo, web design, etc. It provides a variety of fine effects through the simulation of natural phenomena in reality. In addition, its simple and intuitive user interface is conducive to improve the efficiency of Photoshop use.
