    I Do many Animated Sigs and Avatars, I just recently started doing a few Movie Sigs And have gotten pretty good with it, however it lags my Photoshop real bad when doing it.
    Is it possible that so many plugins are running and is it possible to disable some?
    Then if so how will I know which ones to disable?

    Re: Plugins

    The number of plugins you have installed shouldn't affect Photoshop's performance at all. It might slow down the startup, but that's it. I suspect your trouble lies elsewhere.

    However, you can make a special folder outside your Photoshop directory for 3rd-party plugins, then point Photoshop to that folder in prefs. Then, if you need to disable plugins for any reason, just uncheck that pref and restart Photoshop. When you want them back, just check it again.

      ....or put an underline "_" in front of a plugin folder's name. PS will just skip it when loading plugins.

      (That's not some Japanese smiley - that's an underline between quotes, OK?)

          too many Plugins?

          I have quite a few Plugins installed but they are not all showing up when I try to apply a filter. Do I have too many? Is there a limit?

          Hi , I'm curious about the range of additional plugins available to Ps & if they really can enhance the image editing process or are they generally just dressed up automations for what can already be achieved manually within Ps?

          Some of the plugins I've come across so far include...

          what plug-ins do you use?
          by Pacificpowered

          My name is Donald Kelly. I have been using Photoshop to retouch and edit photos for awhile now, but I have no experience using plug-ins.

          I was wondering if anyone who retouches and edits could offer a list of their personal favorite plug-ins that they find useful...

          Panopticum's plug-ins from author directly.

          Some of Panopticum's plug-ins are available from author's site now. It must give support better. As for me I like "Engraver". My recommendations.
