Hosting Plug-ins in my application.

Postby Clipi » Wed May 30, 2007 10:55 am

I would like to know how could I add support in my graphic application
for Photoshop compatible plug-ins.
Are there any sample or source code to see what I need to implement
to give support to my software for plug-ins?

Thanks so much!

There is the GIMP plugin host whose source code should be available, but the GIMP plugin host is not very compatible according to my experiences.

I know a Hungarian guy who wrote a Photoshop plugin host and sells it is a DLL or static library. This plugin host is currently used e.g. in Ultimate Paint, Photo-Brush and Irfanview and is quite compatible.

Please contact me at to get his email address.
