Add on filters are very fun to use and when used can really
set off your pictures and layouts. One of my favorite filters to
use in Virtural Photographer by wwwoptikVerveLabs.com. A free download.
This tutorial will help you set up Digital Image Pro to find this
I have a folder on my computer (in My Documents)
called "Plugins" this is where I download and store all
my plugin filters. By having its own folder then I can point several
different programs to the folder and then I don't have to install
each filter for each program. (for example- I use Photoshop CS2
and Photoshop Elements).
Find or purchase your filter, download it (unzip
it) or load it from the installation CD into a folder called "Plugins".
Open up Digital Image, start a new project, and
insert a paper object (anything) you will not be able to load the
filter until you do this.
Effects > Plugin Filters
Your screen should look something like this. The
edges filter is a default of Microsoft's Digital Image Pro.
Click on "Change Plug-in Filter"
You will see this box appear
Click on browse and point to your new "Plugins"
folder, then click on OK.
Then click on OK again.
You may have to close and restart your program to
have the effects work.
Have fun with the use of all the cool filters....
Now that was easy. Have fun and remember to post
your creations in the DSP gallery.
