Chapter 18.  Working with Plug-Ins  > Installing Plug-Ins

Installing Plug-Ins

By default, the plug-ins that come with Photoshop install to various subfolders of the C:\Program Files\Adobe\Photoshop 7.0\Plug-Ins\ folder. You can purchase additional plug-ins or download a variety of freeware and shareware plug-ins from a number of sources online. (See Appendix D, which lists some Web sites where you can begin your search for available plug-ins.)

If you download a particular type of plug-in, you typically can just move or copy the plug-in file (after decompressing it, unzipping it, or renaming it, if indicated per the instructions accompanying the plug-in) to the folder that holds similar plug-in files, assuming the plug-in doesn’t include its own installer program. In other cases, you may want to store your third-party plug-ins in a separate folder to distinguish them from the plug-ins provided with Photoshop. If you choose this route, you need to specify the alternate plug-in location, as described next.
