I have the PSPi file downloaded and installed but I keep getting error messages when I try loading the Xero filters.. I downloaded 64 bit filters. The message I get:
pspi: LoadLibrary() failed for C:\Users\Mackenzie\.gimp-2.8\plug-ins\photoshopplugins\conditioner_64.8bf: %1 is not a valid Win32 application.

What have I done wrong?
EDIT: I deleted the filters because I got error messages. None of them seem to work. Also, when I do get the filters to work properly, how do I call them up to use them?

I believe Rod said "You will want 32 bit for GIMP's PSPI plug-in however because it has never been compiled as 64 bit...yet. :)"
I installed the 32 bit version first in c/user/gimp/plugins and didn't see them when I started gimp. So I tried
c/programs files/gimp 2.0/lib/gimp/2.0/plug-ins but still can't access the plugins.
Maybe I need the PSPI plug-in ?

You're right, he did say that but the site lists a 64 Bit link: http://xero-graphics.co.uk/#!/content/d ... index.html and that's why I chose that one. I'll try the 32 bit files.

It took a while, to get everything working. So far they all work and that includes Quasar.

Sorry mackenzieh that i didn't get back to you very quickly on this.
Yes you have to use 32 bit 8BF plugins for PSPI as its a 32 bit plug-in.

Tom you will need the PSPI plug-in i attached it here.

This executable is for WINDOWS only.
Place it in your plug-ins folder
Restart GIMP
Look under Filters> and find the new menu entry Photoshop Plug-in Settings and click it.
A new dialog window will open
Point the plugin to the folder you placed the 8BF filters in.
Restart GIMP
You should now have a new menu entry under Filters named Xero
You also should have a new rc file in the gimp user folder. "pspirc"

My advice is to use my method of adding Adobe (8BF) filters to PSPI.
Use subfolders of each new plug-in and point PSPI to each one as you add them. Creating multiple lists of directory paths works much better than one directory where you just throw in a plug-in and hope it works. Most of the time it will not unless you create a separate directory for each 8BF filter set.

Good luck and holler at me with a PM if you need further assistance.

Thanks, made a new folder for Photoshop plugins in the plugin folder and put the PSPI plug-in in with the rest of the exe files of the original plug-in folder.
Everything is working !

Is there anything in Xero that can't be done in Gmic?

Probably not, but, like all filters, it's a matter of convenience. If you know how a particular preset (in the case of G'MIC) or a filter (as in Xero filters) work, you choose what's easiest for you to use. :)

Has anyone used or tried out Harry's Plugins? Are they safe to use? I'm just curious.
Here's the link: http://www.thepluginsite.com/resources/freeps.htm

Harry's Filters Version 4.0 works very well for Gimp (version 3 is not).

Thanks MareroQ. I also want to know if they are actually free and where is the best virus free site to get them from? These days nothing is actually completely free.
