It's not completely the same; we intend to make every filter a dynamic layer
effect. If I understand what Photoshop does correctly, then it has a set of
effects that are not the same as filters that can be applied to a layer
or a selection. I guess our approach is more flexibly, but I'm also thinking
it'll be a lot slower and and I'm not sure how to do the glow thing from
one of Photoshop 6's demo's.
