A general trick for finding the Photoshop Plugins folder

On Windows 7, you can click on the "Search Programs And Files" search box in your Windows Start menu and search for "Plug-ins". (On Windows XP, this is in a Start Menu option called "Search -> For Files Or Folders".) If you type "Plug-ins" with the hyphen and without the quotes, you should find a list of folders, and one of them should be your Photoshop plug-ins folder.

Unfortunately, this trick doesn't work on Windows 10, because it doesn't search your Program Files folders anymore. Try clicking the links above for your particular graphics program to get specific instructions.
