I wrote it in 2001, and it initially worked on Windows only. Then nothing much happened until March 2006 when it became available also on Pspi.exe. All that was needed, basically, was for somebody to try building it using winegcc.
Possibly building and running it on Linux might have worked already years ago, but nobody tried Thanks to Mukund for trying it on Linux and reporting the success! Where to find Photoshop plug-in filters that are any good? You will find time-limited or functionally limited demo versions of commercial filters, and “freeware” filters. A lot of the 3rd-party filters that you can find on the net are mostly crap, though, and don’t do anything particularily exciting that one couldn’t do with GIMP by itself already. I think that for instance many filters from Flaming Pear are highly regarded.
You can find time-limited demo versions, and some giveaway fully functional ones from their site. Some magazines that come with “cover” CD-ROMs, like Computer Arts, often include commercial Photoshop filters on the CD-ROMs. They might for instance be slightly older versions than those that you need to pay full price for. Windows DLLs, which are dynamically loaded into the plug-in host process’s address space.
They are files with the extension . GIMP plug-ins, on the other hand, are separate programs, . Windows, that run as separate processes. Unlike GIMP plug-ins, 3rd-party Photoshop plug-ins don’t use any common user interface library.
This is because 3rd-party Photoshop plug-ins are usually available both for the Windows and Macintosh versions of Photoshop. The pspi script can, though, and is from GIMP’s point of view a GIMP plug-in. Photoshop plug-ins there one by one, verifying that each works. It isn’t really useful to rush and install a shitload of Photoshop plug-ins at once and assume they all will work under pspi. Downloads These downloads are for quite old Linux distro versions, I know. But I have not worked on PSPI for quite some time, and as far as I know these binaries should work also in newer releases of the corresponding distros. The Windows, SUSE and Ubuntu packages are by me.
