I am considering acquiring some plugins for Photoshop and After Effects and I thought this might create a thread of interest to others to see a listing of plugins with recommendations from users.

There are alot to consider so I was hoping to get some recommendations from people who have used them.

I suggest the plugins that are recommended to be rated in their related following categories:
1-Image enhancement
3-Seamless tiling
4-Print enhancement
6-any other category that should be considered by a web and/or graphic designer

Then rate each plugin based on ease of use and ability to be updated to newest Photoshop and After Effects program versions.

I look forward to your replies and suggestions and hope this can be of benefit to all.

For After Effects I currently use the psunami and aurora sky
which create very realistic water and sky animations and come with tutorials and support websites. For Photoshop I use the Eye Candy suite which are very easy to use and create very realistic patterns and textures.

#1. There is really only plugin I couldn't do without. It's the Nikon RAW converter for Photoshop. I use it almost daily. I'd give it full marks for features. Never had to update it - but we will be upgrading to CS3...

One of the Noise reduction plug-ins is good to have.
