How do I install custom BPT Photoshop Panels?

Panel installation instructions:

01 Start by downloading the custom panel from the magazine web site. Next, double click on the ZXP or panel file to start the installation process.

02 The Adobe Extension Manager CS5 utility will automatically open. This program is used to install and delete 3rd party panels to and from Adobe programs. You may need to click OK to an extensions disclaimer to continue. Once installed the new panel will appear as a new extensions entry for Photoshop.

Windows Users: If you get an installation error at this point then close the Extension Manager and restart the utility by right-clicking on the program icon and selecting the Run as Administrator option from the pop-up menu.

03 Start Photoshop and then display the entries for the Window > Extensions menu. You will see the new panel listed here. Select the panel to display it in the main Photoshop workspace.

04 Depending on the contents of the panel (embedded or linked movies etc.), you may receive a message window asking you to close and redisplay the panel the very first time you select it. Simply right-click on the panel's title bar and select Close from the pop-up menu. Then reselect the panel entry from the Extensions menu. Now you are set to go!

PLEASE NOTE: Panels designated Photoshop CS5 will only work in that version of the program. The same is also true of panels titled Photoshop CS4 which only work in CS4.
