I have developed Adobe Illustrator plug-in for several years.
And now, I started developing Photoshop plug-in.Targets are PS CS5/6.
This is my first development.


I first thought, in Ai plug-in almost function can be developed,
but "PS plug-in" it seems to have many restrictions here.


Followings are my questions.


1. Tool Bar registration

In case of "Ai Plugin", registering and selecting toolbar can be done.
But I can't find the way, in case of "PS Plugin" from documents.
Are there no way for Tool Bar registration?


2. Sequences

There are many "PS Plug-in" types.
And for every plugin types the sequences between host application (i.e. Photoshop) are almost fixed.
I think this means that extra sequences are not exist.
Are my understandings correct?


I would be appreciated for giving me advices.

    1. No. You cannot add tools to Photoshop via the SDK. Check the SDK's FAQ for more things you can and cannot do in Photoshop.

    2. Yes, your understanding is correct.
