NKS5 Natural Media Toolkit for Photoshop

I haven’t gotten to try it out, but the NKS5 Natural Media Toolkit for Photoshop CS5/CS6 looks interesting:

NKS5 is a custom toolkit for Adobe Photoshop CS5, CS5.5 and CS6. It provides a wide range of natural media, texturing, and production tools in an attractive, easy-to-use palette with a minimal footprint.

Here’s a demo:

    John, at first glance, the small image in your blog page evoked my reaction of WTF? (What’s This For?). But then I played the demo full-screen and wow, this is a well thought out and beautifully executed tool! And that’s coming NOT from a designer, but from a mere photographer! I can already see using this to create or enhance backgrounds for some of my retouching/restoration work. Thanks for letting us know about this gem.

    One complaint, though: there’s no audio for the demo. It would be nice to have the video synced to Paul Simon’s “Kodachrome”. [:-)

    It works in Photoshop CS5, best of all it is free. Dont let confuse you Publisher not verified, it will appear twice while installing extension.

    Whoa! Downloaded and played around with them and am absolutely thrilled. Brilliant work by this fellow. I’m going to kick him down some beer money. Here’s a quick sketch:
