One of the filters that is often overlooked is the Fiber Filter. If you need to create an organic fiber texture, this filter will now render it for you automatically (Filter > Render > Fibers). You can control both the variance and strength of the “weave” as well as randomize the result until you find the perfect texture. Note: this filter uses the foreground and background colors selected in the tool box, so choose your colors before choosing the filter.

    The Fiber Filter was the perfect tool I needed to provide an unobtrusive, curtain-like background to fill some space at the top of this digital illustration (which won 1st Prize at a regional competition):

    This is actually one of my favorite filters, now – I use it in place of Clouds when I start looking for base textures and effects. Thanks for making a note of it!

    SUGGESTION: Add this (these) feature(s) to Lightroom, PLEASE.
    It is very time consuming to bounce back and forth between LR3 and CS5.
