Installing Plugins for PaintShop Pro

Installing Plugins for PaintShop Pro

By Roger Wambolt

Did you know that there are a number of plugins that can be used with PaintShop Pro? If you’re not familiar with plugins, they are simply add-on programs designed to enhance or add extra functionality to your existing software. These plugins are created by Corel, or by other software companies, or by the PaintShop Pro developer community.

In this tutorial, we’ll use the Google Nik filters to show you how to install a plugin and get it working with PaintShop Pro. The process is not complicated and it will only take a few steps for you to add filters, brushes or other tools.

You can download the Google Nik filters for free and follow along with this tutorial as you install the plugin. And if you are using PaintShop Pro version X7 or higher, you can find other plugins by going to Help > Welcome to open the Welcome screen then browse through the list of plugins on the Get More tab.
