Highly unlikely unless you want to order a very substantial number (thousands of filters most likely).

filters are important in photo enhancement... also for special effects....

Not everything can be done in Photoshop. For example star filter effect on Orchard Road during Christmas. You'll have to paint a star for every bright spot of light! Or polarizing over transparent medium with glare, like shooting fishes in water.

Filters are still much needed in a photographer's bag.
