12.6. Plug-In Browser

The Plug-In Browser command displays a dialog window which shows all of the extensions (plug-ins) which are currently loaded in GIMP, both as a list and as a hierarchical tree structure. Since many of the filters are actually plug-ins, you will certainly see many familiar names here. Please note that you do not run the extensions from this dialog window. Use the appropriate menu entry to do that instead. For example, you can run filter plug-ins by using the Filter command on the image menubar.

12.6.1. Activating the Command

  • You can access this command from the image menubar through HelpPlug-in Browser
