Reviewer's remarks: This updated version, 1.50 of Plugin Commander Pro is much more powerful and easier to use than the previous version. It is a great program for organizing, converting, creating, archiving and applying one's filters. It enables the use, through conversion, of filters (including those which you create) in different programs. It also enables one to use the filters on images within the program itself including batch applications of the filters to images. The preview window, the image window and the browser are all much improved. One can drag and drop the plugin files to reorganize them by type. Also one can turn off the plugins that are seldom used until one wants to use them. This means that programs don't have to load so many filters every time they are opened.
