Step 5: Use the Photoshop Plugins

I have selected to demonstrate here two Photoshop filters. One of them launches a window wherein you select settings and options and can preview your changes before applying the filter. The other simply applies the filter directly to the image. This is done to demonstrate the flexibility of the functionality.

Because windows dialogs running in WindowsXP is wholly unremarkable, I have obtained screenshots for this demo from my linux box.

First I create a new image, and then go to the "Filters" menu. All of the Photoshop plugins you have added to the plugin will appear at the bottom of the Filters menu. Here you can see that I have several plugin registries installed, and I have opened the FlamingPear menu to access the LunarCell plugin.

I set up the settings I like in the window that opens, and when I am done, I click "OK" to apply the filter. After a few seconds of thinking, the filter finishes running and I have an image of a pretty-looking planet.

The next few images demonstrate "instant" filters, I'm sure they have some official-sounding name. I mean filters that just do what they do, without a dialog to set up how the filter is run.

Here, I have a pretty picture taken of a deserted street in the excavated city of Pompeii in Italy. I once again open the "Filters" menu and expand FlamingPear, then select the Anaglyph Flip filter. After a few seconds of processing, I have turned Pompeii into an alien landscape.

And that's all there is to it!
