FAQ - How do I install a plug-in to use with PhotoPlus?

Serif Software > PhotoPlus

Applies to: Any version of PhotoPlus

When installing your plug-in, you will be asked where you would like to install it to. You should choose to install the plug-in into the Plug-ins folder of your PhotoPlus installation. The locations vary depending on whether you are using a 32-bit or a 64-bit computer.

32-bit computer
If you're using 32-bit Windows, your 32-bit plug-ins should be installed to the following location:
C:\Program Files\Serif\PhotoPlus\<version>\Plugins

You cannot use 64-bit plug-ins with 32-bit PhotoPlus.

64-bit computer
If you're using 64-bit plug-ins with 64-bit Windows, they should be installed to the following location:
C:\Program Files\Serif\PhotoPlus\X6\Plugins


Using 32-bit plug-ins on a 64-bit computer
32-bit plug-ins are not supported in 64-bit PhotoPlus.

If you're using 64-bit Windows, your 32-bit plug-ins should be installed to the following location:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Serif\PhotoPlus\<version>\Plugins

In this instance, to use your 32-bit plug-ins you'll need to install 32-bit PhotoPlus X6 alongside 64-bit PhotoPlus X6. For instructions on how to do this, please see the separate Troubleshooting article "
I can't access my plug-ins using 64-bit PhotoPlus X6".

Alternatively, if you installed PhotoPlus to a custom location, choose the Plug-ins folder from that custom location.

When you have installed your plugin, it will be available in PhotoPlus via Effects>Plugin Filters.
