Note: You can launch almost all AKVIS plugins from the menu Filter, except AKVIS Magnifier.
To call the Magnifier plugin in Photoshop please use the command File -> Automate -> AKVIS Magnifier, in Photoshop Elements: File -> Automation Tools -> AKVIS Magnifier. The plugin does not work with other image editors. Unlike other AKVIS plugins, to make the Magnifier plugin work you must have two files in the Plug-Ins folder: 8li and 8bf.
