Description: Learn how to install 3rd party plugins and filters so they show up under the Effects menu ready to be used to enhance your images.
Before a plugin or filter can work in PhotoImpact, you
will need to have downloaded and unzipped the msvcrt10.zip
file. You will also need to have the plugin.dll
file but as it belongs to Adobe, I cannot offer it for download here.
However, you can get it by downloading a trial version of one of the
Adobe products, it comes with several of their products. Plugin.dll
files dated 7/6/98 and 6/30/99 both work.
Place the mscvrt10.dll into your Windows/System folder.
Close the PhotoImpact programme down and then re-open it. After you've opened a new image you should now see all your filters showing up under the Effects menu ready for use.
There are numerous places over the internet where filters can be downloaded for use in PhotoImpact. Some of those sites are listed on PIRC for your convenience.
Unfortunately, not all plugins and filters are compatible with PhotoImpact, so if you have problems with starting up the programme then I suggest taking them out of the folder on your hard-drive and putting them back in one at a time. Shut down and restart PhotoImpact each time you re-introduce a filter until you come across the incompatible culprit.
