Attention! To work with the .8bf files in Paint.NET, you need the special PSFilterPdn plugin installed.
There are two ways to add the AKVIS plugins to Paint.NET:
Method 1. Copy the ".8bf" files from the AKVIS folder (by default, C:\Program Files\AKVIS\) into the plug-ins folder of Paint.NET (by default, C:\Program Files\paint.net\Effects\).
Method 2. Add plugins to Paint.NET directly in the editor:
Enable the Search Subdirectories check-box.
Now the AKVIS plugins can be used in the Paint.NET image editor.
To call the AKVIS plugins, do following:
Click on the Run Filter button.
