This may have been discussed before, but I have been taking basic lessons in Photoshop and this is the first time I have looked at this forum, was always on the PSP one before.. lol..
Both my friend and I (she has CS4 and I have CS3, both use XP) are wondering how we can get all our plugins to show up. We have some in the Plug-ins folder in program files, and have others in another folder, to which we have directed the program to look.
I am aware that only a limited number will display... is there a specific number ?? I have read that if I add most of my plugins to Filters Unlimited, then that shows as only 1 listing, although it may have a hundred extra plugins in it... is that correct?
Could you please help us, step by step, (think "Plugins for Dummies")... or direct us to other messages which may answer this annoying problem...

If you have plugins in various folders, you can create shortcuts to direct Photoshop to them. It is explained here: ... tion.htm#7

Filters Unlimited lets you use all Filter Factory plugins from one dialog. But that does not work with other Photoshop plugins.

Best read my article on Photoshop plugins here: ... uction.htm
