Problems with plugins in PSPX

Postby craftydink » Mon Jul 11, 2016 8:14 pm

I'm tearing my hair out. Have installed a few plugins (Simple, Macurl and MuRa's copies) using the file location method in PSPX on my laptop. When I go into effects, plugins, the plugin folders are there but all the plugins are greyed out and I can't use them. Can anyone help? I'm still using Windows XP. Would that be a problem? PSP itself is working with no problems.

When they were installed on our main PC (also running WindowsXP) they worked fine but since the main PC had problems I've been using PSP just on my laptop.

Any help would be gratefully received.

After my plea for help (which hasn't appeared on here for some reason) have sorted out my plugin problem in PSPX. I installed a version of PiCo on my laptop which I found in a folder holding all the files from the main PC. My plugins are now working and I can have a good play.

When filter menu items are greyed out it usually means that they do not support the current image mode. Almost all plugins support RGB images with 8 bit per channel. So change your image to that and the filter menu items will be enabled.
