I used the photoshop SDK CS5. And complied the sample code hidden in the filter folder with my x-code. And I get the target file 'Hidden.plugin' . But it seems no use, when I puts it to the photoshop plug-ins plugin folder.The version of my photoshop is also CS5. Anyone can tell me why?

    Build the automationfilter example in the automation folder. The automationfilter plugin will show up in the File -> Automate menu. The automationfilter example calls the hidden filter plugin to edit pixel data.

    Change the string here to something like "MyCompany",


    Category { "**Hidden**" },


    If you are looking for a filter that has a dialog and is more of a full featured example I would look at the Dissolve example. Hidden is not designed to have a menu item.


    On windows. Make sure you right click and compile the .r file in your project solution. Then right click on the .rc file and compile. Then compile your plugin.
