Newbie: Managing Filters

Discussion in 'Photoshop' started by Anita Roddick, Feb 11, 2007.

  1. Hello,

    I'm new at Photoshop, and I've started going through thousands of filters
    that I've downloaded.

    The problem is that the whole filters menu becomes so messy with hundreds of
    subdirs and messy names. Like "Andrew's Filters 25" and "4000 filters" etc

    Is there a way you can assign each filter its own name and its own directory
    (that is displayed as such in PS)?

    I was thinking of perhaps making my own filter pack (to keep for myself, not
    pass off as being made by me), which I can neatly assign subdirs in
    different catagories etc.

    Thanks in advance,

    Having more than 100 filters is in my very own opinion a waste of time
    and newbish.
    Just like fonts, a pro can use 100 fonts and do much better than an
    idiot with 10 000.

    You can specify other plugin directories in Preferences. Why on earth
    you would want that many filters is beyond me. I have maybe 10 or 15
    third party filters loaded and hardly use them.

    Learn to use the program, not the crutches.
