Plugins, pretty please…

Recommended Posts

Am I missing something or there is no way for an avid group of artists, designers and developers to build their own plugins and share with this amazing community and the rest of the world without the awesome Affinity team having to do anything for to grow exponentially and make the Affinity tools even better?

To build your own plugins, you need to follow the Adobe plugin specification. If you google Photoshop plugin sdk, you will find pages on how to do it.

Note that Photo can only use .8bf plugin files. These are the ones that implement filters on a pixel image.
