Chapter 18.  Working with Plug-Ins  > Applying a Plug-In to a File

Applying a Plug-In to a File

If a filter enables you to use Photoshop to work with files of different formats, the filter typically adds the format into the Files of Type list of the Open dialog box or the Format list of the Save As dialog box.

Before you begin the steps, be sure you open the file to which you want to apply the plug-in.
