    Can Adobe Filters be added to Flexi along with the ones that are already in Flexi?

    Yup. They are accessable with your regualr filters. You need to make sure they are going in the default location. I have some Alien Skin filters that I apply in Flexi 8.1v1

    Also you must have a bitmap selected before they show up.

    You can use the preferences to point to the adobe plugins.

    Yes, you are locating them correctly. And it would appear that version 8 is still no better at picking up and using the stock PS plugin filters. I think I'll continue our move to creative suite. Flexi still cuts the heck out of vinyl though...

    I did the same thing originally and flexi never did see them. So I put them in photoshop cs2 and set preferences to adobe plugins. Mine work but will not print correctly or show up correctly in flexi 8 (and that is why I upgraded from 7.6). They work great in photoshop though.
