Photoshop 3 had this thing called the Filter Factory that allowed you to design your own filters. One of the first filters I wrote with the Filter Factory was a little thing I called the Channel Mixer. It lets you mix custom amounts of the green and blue channels into the red, red and blue into the green and green and red into the blue. Fast forward a few years, Adobe discontinues the Filter Factory sighting lack of interest, my Channel Mixer no longer works. Then, and what are the chances, Photoshop 5 ships with its own Channel Mixer that lets you and get this mix custom amounts of the green and blue channels into the red channel, red and blue into the green and green and red into the blue. Sound familiar, but Deke you say, Adobe's Channel Mixer doesn't look anything like yours and your slider bars didn't really appear to make nearly as much sense.
Yeah, I imagine that's precisely what Adobe wants you to think. Perhaps, now you're beginning to understand how diabolically crafty these Photoshop programmers can be. What's next Adobe? An online video-based trainer feature, with a goatee and this shirt, but even if the Channel Mixer is my love child; I recognize it for what it really truly is, a great feature. You'll see it and much, much more in these next exercises.
