Versatile one-click plugins for Photoshop Elements.
Designed exclusively for Mac users, Skylum’s Creative Kit 2016 introduces an entirely new perspective to photography. Equipped with some of the most powerful tools ever to be discovered in the world of photography, the Kit offers a somewhat simplistic ‘magical’ approach through which any image captured with any type of camera can be transformed into a superb masterpiece, in seconds.
Fortified with 6 stunning four-consecutive-years award winning and highly resourceful applications, the Creative Kit 2016 not only offers ease and flexibility in photo-creativity, it also does so in its pocket friendliness.

Skylum’s CK 2016 award-winning apps comprising of Snapheal, Fx Photo Studio, Intensify, Tonality, Focus and Noiseless are all packaged in a single installation file. The Pro versions are designed to function as either standalone apps or as plug-ins and add-ons to Photoshop elements for Mac users.
Plugins provide additional flexibility, image effect and versatility that were otherwise unavailable or unachievable by means of the image application alone. They bond with the host application through which they are executed. Today, there are several millions of free and commercial plugins/add-ons available online. They include the import/export plugins, filter plugins, file format plugins, design plugins, automation plugins and parser plugins among several others.
As we know, for any plugin to be functional, it would require a favorable platform, otherwise known as the ‘Plugin host’ to operate. A Plugin host is an application that provides the platform for applying or executing any plugin. Photoshop Element is a perfect example of a plugin host. Others include PhotoExpress, Paint Shop Pro, Picture Publisher, PhotoImpact, PhotoBrush, PhotoDeluxe etc.
Among all the plugin hosts, Photoshop Elements is known to be exceptional in the sense that it provides full support to all existing plugin types. Others are known to either exhibit partial compatibility, crash while in use or simply give one kind of issue or the other.
