Lightbulb Photo effect Plugin - virtualPhotographer

virtualPhotographer by optikVerve Labs
This is an awesome plugin for Paintshop or Photoshop. I think for a few other programs too. I use it a lot, hope someone else finds it useful. Easy set up and don't forget the extras.

Don't forget to get all the extras that go along with it!! When I first downloaded, I didn't see the extras, so I went without for quite some time... poor me! :p LOL!! The extras are even more fabulous!!

How do you use a plug-in? I have CS3 so where would I put this and how would I use it??? Your help would be very much appreciated.
Thanks and hugs

I use PSE5, but I'm sure it's almost the same location....

After you download, go to the self-extracting file, double-click, and extract to this file path:

C:>ProgramFiles>Adobe>Elements5.0>Plug-Ins>Filters

Your's will say "CS3" instead of "Elements5.0" I think... or something to that affect...

This will put a folder named "optikVerveLabs" inside your Filters folder... follow the same steps with each of the bonus downloads, except you want to put them in the "optikVerveLabs" folder.

When you want to use it, it should be listed under your Filters menu in Photoshop... if you want to use the bonus dowloads, you need to open up Virtual Photographer, and then click the load button located at the bottom-middle, then choose which bonus you want to load...


If you have any questions, or need help, just let me know!! Hope this makes sense!

Wow thanks for this KimberKat,
Yep, I think I've got it, I'll have a go at doing this tomorrw once I've sorted out my pc. Had to buy a new external hard drive as mine is pretty full (woops, darn it, a girl just can't say no to delicious scrap goodies..... lol)

Hugs and thanks again

this is great!
just wish I wouldn't have to load all the extras all the time..
maybe I can copy them in the Extra Setting folder and they will show up automatically...

If you figure out a way to load ALL the extras so they show up automatically, let us know. Right now, it seems to me, you have to go back to the extras each time you want to use one.

this is definitely a must-have plug-in. if you can't use photoshop plug-ins, they have a stand-alone editor version with all the effect.
