Chapter 21. PREFERENCES > Plug-ins & Scratch Disk Preferences

Plug-ins & Scratch Disk Preferences

Note: For changes made in this dialog box to take effect, you must exit/quit and relaunch Photoshop.

1.
Click Additional Plug-Ins Folder, then clickChoose if you need to relocate or use another plug-ins folder. Photoshop needs to know where to find this folder in order to access the plug-in contents of third-party plug-ins. Photoshop's internal Plug-Ins module shouldn't be moved out of the Photo shop folder unless you have a specific reason for doing so. Moving it could inhibit access to filters, the Import-Export and Effects commands, and some file formats under the save commands.

2.
The First (and optional Second, Third, or Fourth) Scratch Disk is used when available RAM is insufficient for processing or storage. Choose an available hard drive from the First pop-up menu. Startup is the default.



As an optional step, choose an alternative Second, Third, or Fourth hard drive to be used as extra work space when necessary. If you have only one hard drive, of course you'll have only one scratch disk.
