I was wondering, is there a plug-in for photoshop that would polarize a picture that wasn't taken with a polarizer? I would assume it could be done, but u know what they say about assuming....

Nik Color Effects Pro 2.0 is a Photoshop plug-in that contains a collection of about 50 "filters" including a polarizer. It's an expensive license though. http://www.nikmultimedia.com/colorefexpro/usa/entry.php
This is the only one I know of. I does have a demo version. I tried the demo of 1.0 a while back. It works quite nicely.

Some of the effects of using a polarizercan be duplicated with effects plugins. Like the sky darkening/saturation.

Other effects of using apolarizer like its use to cut down and cancelreflections from shiny surfaces cannot, as when using a real filter your cameracan record more detail in the areas that were affected. In computer you cannot use a plugin to recover detail that was not there in the first place. Although some of the plugins can fake things pretty well.
