I'm new to this Photoshop game and I'm not sure how to do the plug-in thing can you help???
Plug-ins came in a variety of flavors. Special FX filter are probably the most popular type of plug-in. Fire, clouds and smoke can be custom created using Photoshop and plug-in software from companies such as Alien Media and Corels KPT. Both package an Installer with their collections, making installation a snap. To manually add a simple plug-in,
Choose Program files > Adobe > Photoshop CS2 > Plug-ins
You can deposit an entire folder of related plug-ins right into the Plug-ins directory. You could also drag and drop a single plug-in filter into the Filters folder located inside the Plug-ins folder. Either way you'll need to re-start Photoshop for the program to recognize the additions. After re-start, check the Filters menu for your new plug-in/s. I hope I've helped.
