Any plugin developers here?
Posted: Tue Oct 05, 2004 1:29 am
I'm wondering how hard it would be to create a Photoshop plugin.
There's this blp image format that is not supported by Photoshop, but I wanna be able to open and save blp files with PS.
I already have implemented functions to convert blp images to bmp or tga and back (in C++, and VB).
Now I don't know what would be needed to make a plugin out of that. Wich programs would I need to do that? Can you give me any useful links to similar samples or useful information?

You seem to want to create a file format plugin. That is only possible with the Photoshop SDK from Adobe or with the Photoshop SDK for Delphi. Have a look at http://thepluginsite.com/knowhow/plugincreation.htm
for more information.

Trying to write a plugin! Meeting many obstacles!

I hope you guys can help me.
I have been commissioned at work to write a photoshop plugin.
I thought it would be much easier than it is turning out to be.
I am having a lot of trouble in getting simple things to work and I think I am misunderstanding the documentation.
Have any of you written plugins?
I went to the site mentioned above and downloaded some of the plugins and looked at them, but I still don't understand why my code won't work.
In the docs, it says that filterRect is supposed to hold the current selection, but if I try just to fill in the rectangle bounded by filterRect, the entire image is filled in.
Do I need to somehow tell photoshop to initialize filterRect to the selected area?
So far, I have kind of gotten around this by manually stepping through the maskData and creating my own rect that houses the bounds of the selected material, but from the way I have it written, I can not figure out how I would do this for the preview image in the dialog box.
I hope you can help me.
I do have an official version of the SDK, but I cannot find a forum for developers at Adobe's site.
I can find PS user forums, but then when I ask a question I get flamed and told to go ask on the devlopers forums. I have sent emails to adobe asking where these are and have not gotten a response.
Thank you for any info or pointers you can give me.
PS. I am using the SDK for Photoshop 7, Photoshop 7, but Visual Studio .NET 2003, can this cause problems?
