Unzip and then add this to your Effects folder in your Paint.Net Program files. Then, download your new Alien Skin software.
I will be working with Eye Candy 5, an older version of software by Alien Skin, but I realize that, too, is out-of-date (so to speak)! Each time I have downloaded Eye Candy, I have gotten two different ways to start up my software.
In Eye Candy Nature 5.1, my "Setup" is my application file and the one I need to click to start the process as shown in this tutorial.
However, in Eye Candy 5 Natural, my setup application is labeled as shown below. Click the "Application" file to start the installation process.
Some Eye Candy may have a silly looking file name to their setup application, as shown below for Eye Candy Impact:
Lastly, some of the plugins you may want to download (outside of Eye Candy) may not have a set up application at all! Like the Almather plugins shown below:
Once you have your application going, follow the steps below. Good luck!
When this starts, you'll see this window:
Click Next to get this window:
Once you get past this, you must add your name, company (if applicable) and your license number.
When the next screen pops up, you'll see it will want to place it in Corel PSP. You can actually click to choose where you want your plugin to go.
***Note: On Windows 8, you see TWO locations--Program Files and Program Files (x86). If your installation doesn't work in one folder, try the other. Some of my plugins went into one (and worked) but not the other and vise versa.***
Click ok and the process will start. Once completed, it will say it has finished and you just need to click the finish button.
