7 Great Creative Photoshop Plugins

These plugins will help with the design end of Photoshop and make a lot of chores much easier. We have tried them and had an issue with the NKS55 loading it through the Adobe Extension Manager CS6. After giving error messages we found it loaded and not a problem, so if you do get an error message allow it to load. Also check to be sure these work with your version of Photoshop.
