This is just a random thought off the top of my head, but maybe it will inspire someone...

It would probably be very cool if the "preview" functionality could be implemented so that it could also act as a filter.

Such that, for instance, someone could grab a "looking glass" and "attach an effect" to it and move it over the image area. The image within this "looking glass" would then show a preview of the effect in this area in pseudo-realtime.

Maybe if the design is made with this in mind it would make for a very useful bit of code where a 'preview' is simply a copy of the image or layer with a fixed 'looking glass' size and a couple scrollbars.

And it would make for some very powerful effects, perhaps even to the extent of having 'effect layers'.

Or not.
