Windows and Mac users of AfterShot Pro 3 and higher can now access plugins directly within the software, under the 'Get More' tab. Once you've installed, restart AfterShot to implement your changes.

Updating Plugins

Updating plugins is the same as installing a plugin for the first time: just download the updated plugin file, and install it using the steps above.

Removing a Plugin

To remove a plugin from AfterShot Pro, all you need to do is to remove the plugin folder that contains the plugin from your AfterShot User Folder. The User Folder location can be found on the main application Preferences page (File -> Preferences on Windows and Linux, AfterShot Pro -> Preferences on Macs).
