I am a developer with background of developing After Effects Plug In's.
I would like to develop a Plug In for Photoshop - Filter Plug In.
I was wondering which componentes of the UI does the Photoshop SDK provides.
I am interested in a simple UI:
Namely, functionality just like the built it Gaussian Blur would be OK by me.
Does the SDK provide all that just as easy it is provided in After Effects or do I have to use a special UI library for that?
Photoshop does not have an API for creating a UI.
You will need to use the OS supplied API or Qt.
NOTE: In older versions of the Photoshop SDK we had the ADM (Adobe Dialog Manager) suite. It is no longer supported, never worked in 64 bit Macintosh and should be avoided.
I can manage the algorithm part of programming, I hopt the UI won't be a deal breaker.
I wish you created something like we have in After Effects.
Really simple, up to the simple internal plug in's UI (Gaussian Blur for instance).
Does anyone has a recommendation for a simple as possible library which works on Windows and MAC OS?
Found some helpful data here:
Yet I'd be happy if some of Adobe's people would share more info to how to do it correctly.
How could we ask for a feature to have somekind of built in GUI for Plug Ins?
Something really simple as in After Effects.
Displaying the result on the main image, having Sliders / Checkboxes / Drop Down List on the right.
Something like you have for the Properties Panel for Adjustment Layer or Even things as simle as we have in Gaussian Blur Filter.
Something even better would be something like the Blur Gallery.
Asking here is a good start. That request has come in before. I'll +1 your request to the list. Another place to post such a request is here: http://feedback.photoshop.com/photoshop_family the more folks +1 it the better chance it has getting in.
