One of Paint Shop Pro's most versatile features is it's ability toaccept Adobe compatible plugins. These plugins are invaluable, whether you're creating webgraphics, or just touching up photos. Though there aremany commercial plugins (such as Alien Skin), there are even more freeplugins available for download. Most plugins have a number of settingsthat you can vary, so the possibilities are limitless. I have well over50 megabytes of filters on my computer. And even though I can't claim thatI use all of them, just having them available is a constant source of inspiration.

Filter Factory Galleries

These are the most well known filters on the web. If you want tocreate webgraphics, you MUST have these. Many of my tutorials use FilterFactory plugins. The galleries used to be available in the .8bf formatthat Paintshop uses, but they are now compiled into more compact FFL files.To decompile them you'll need Harry the Raver's Plugin Commander PiCo,which you can get at ThePlugin Site.

Greg's Factory Output Filters

Greg's Factory Output Volumes I and II are probably the filters Iuse most aside from FFG. His Pool Shadow filter is a great compliment tothe one found in FFG A, and his Metal Effects filter is truly unique. Gregdoesn't seem to be on the net anymore, but you can get his filters on mymain tutorials page. Just look for the link right after the tutorials list

Andrew´s Filter Collections

Andrew Buckle has created a unique collectionof filters, many designed to cause unusual color changes. Like the FilterFactory Galleries, these are compiled in FFL format, and require PluginCommander to make them usable (it's in the Tools section). His galleriesare up to 62 now and there's no sign of his ever stopping. But I don'thave the patience to list them all. The ones beyond 35 can be reached fromany of the pages below.

Kangaroo's Homepage

Kang's filters have to be seen to be appreciated. Almost more interestingthan the filters themselves are the names he gives them. I think my favoriteis ben-wah's Sister.
