The 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 additional third-party plug-ins. When selected, plug-ins contained within the folder will be available from Photoshop’s Filters menu. Organizing your plug-ins into folders helps keep your project focused and reduces the clutter of plug-ins when you select the Filter menu.
Work with Plug-Ins Options
- Click the Edit (Win) or Photoshop (Mac) menu, and then point to Preferences.
- Click Plug-Ins.
- Select the Additional Plug-Ins Folder check box to store additional plug-in.
- If necessary, click Choose to identify the folder where you want to store plug-ins, and then click OK.
- Enter in your Legacy Photoshop Serial Number.
Some third-party plug-ins require access to Photoshop’s old style Serial Number. If you’ve been upgrading Photoshop, and you have the old style serial number (starts with PS) enter that number in the Legacy input box.
- Click OK.
