Filters and Plugins

General information about Filters and Plugins and their installation can be found here.
This includes the necessary dll files for Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7 and 8 (instructions for Win8 and Win10 are the same as for Win7).

In my tutorials I always give links for the filters and plugins I use for my tutorials.
With time, some filters and plugins are no longer available and I will offer for download those, which have been free to use.
Please let me know if you come across a link in a tutorial, which is no longer valid and I will try my best to make the filter or plugin available for download here.

Very much "hit and miss" whether it will work or not on your computer. Usually no problems at all with Windows XP, Vista more of a problem and Windows 7 often ok again. Try with a simple image first, before you do a tutorial, whether it will work or freeze your PSP.
