Setting Plug-Ins Preferences
Plug-ins preferences give you the ability to organize your plug-ins by saving them in one or more folders. These additional folders are typically used to hold third-party plug-ins. When selected, plug-ins contained within the folder will be available from Photoshop’s Filter menu. Organizing your plug-ins into folders helps keep your projects focused and reduces the clutter of plug-ins when you select them from the Filter menu. You also specify whether you want to show all Filter Gallery groups and names on the Filter menu (New!).
Work with Plug-Ins Options
- Click the Edit (Win) or Photoshop (Mac) menu, point to Preferences, and then click Plug-Ins.
- Select the Additional Plug-Ins Folder check box if you have additional plug-ins stored outside the default Photoshop plug-ins folder.
- If you change the location of your additional plug-ins folder, you can always click Choose and navigate to it.
- Select the Show all Filter Gallery groups and names check box to display all Filter Gallery groups and names on the Filter menu (New!).
- Choose options for Extension Panels.
Check Allow Extensions to Connect to the Internet and/or Load Extension Panels if you want to use new features such as Kuler.
- Click OK.
