Using Third-Party Filters

In addition to the filters native to Photoshop Elements, many third-party plug-ins are available. Some are strange, some are just utilitarian, and some are wonderful! Because of the way Elements is designed, almost all Photoshop filters work with it. Let me show you some of my favorites.

Elements is compatible with all the third-party Photoshop filters, and with most plug-ins that work with other graphics programs such as Painter. You can install them very simply, by copying them into the Filters folder. If you already have filters installed in another Photoshop-compatible graphics program, you don't need to reload them. You can designate a second plug-ins folder by going to the Preferences dialog boxes (Edit, Preferences), displaying the Plug-Ins & Scratch Disks options, clicking Choose, and locating the folder containing the additional plug-ins you want to use. When you restart Elements you'll see the new ones listed at the bottom of the Filters menu.
