Plugins on PSP 2021 do not work. Can anyone help?
Hello everyone. I just registered with the Forum.
I think I did the most stupid thing in the Universe by buying a Paint Shop PRO 2021. I threw money in the trash. Most of the Plugins that worked perfectly in the 2020 version do not work in the 2021 version. I have already imported that they accepted to be imported into the Unlimited Filters – But I still find the debauchery, a disdain, a joke in very bad taste of COREL the fact of incompatible the uses of plugins in version 2021. In time, I’m using a Google translator. My native language is Portuguese. I’m sorry if something I wrote seems strange or out of place. Hugs.November 7, 2020 at 9:42 pm #48797
Hi Myriam, welcome to the Campus. Google translate is fine.
PSP2021 has 2 versions: 32-bit and 64-bit. You need to install both versions because older plugins are 32-bits.
The fact that old plugins don’t work with PSP2021 is not Corel’s fault: it is because the plugin’s author didn’t update them. Corel has to stay up-to-date with Windows and new machines. That is why it offers both versions to the user.
Did you start with the trial version of PSP? The trial version only has 64-bit. If you want to install both 32 and 64-bit, you will have to UNINSTALL the trial version and install a different downloaded version (and NOT just unlock the trial version).
Let us know if that makes sense for you.November 7, 2020 at 9:56 pm #48798
Thanks for replying … I bought the original version of PSP 2021- It is not a trial version.
I installed both versions – 64 and 32 and it is precisely in the 32-bit version that the plugins do not work.
I also have all the DLL’s – I imported what was possible for the Unlimited Filter
COREL destroyed the Paint Shop Pro after it purchased the program from JASC. I am furious and sorry to have spent my money. Without Plugins, this Program is just a “space and memory thief” on my PC.
What irresponsibility of COREL – Remove features and still have the courage to say that it has updated and improved a version? It spoiled and destroyed the program.
My 2020 was a trial version … and I lost it. I’m really upset.
Thank you for responding!

I will have to disagree with you on Corel’s responsibility: the same problem happens with other programs. Older plugins often don’t work anymore, even in Photoshop. Some plugins are 10 or 15 years old, and are outdated. In fact, Corel made sure that a 32-bit version was still available, but they cannot match hundreds of plugins; it is the plugins’ author’s responsibility to update their plugins.
There are many things that PSP can do without plugins, and there are still several plugins that do work with PSP.
It has added some great functionalities over the years, like the Magic fill, text wrapping, Selection brush, and more. Of course, it is possible that some of those new tools are not needed for you and your work, while other users do love those new additions.
If you want to achieve something and don’t know how to do it with PSP, just ask and we will be here to help.November 7, 2020 at 10:41 pm #48800
I insist on Corel’s responsibility, because until version 2020 – all plugins – or the vast majority of them – worked. What changed from version 2020 to 2021? Filters have not changed. What has changed is the PSP version. Last year the filters were as old as they are today and perfectly fit in the Paint Shop 2020. So … I say again: The filters were already old and still worked in 2020 … The change in some line of the PSP programming code for version 2021, the filters stopped working. all the people I know who were not as stupid as I am to the point of upgrading to version 2021 are very happy with all their old and outdated filters working in full force. What can I do? Apparently, just regret it.
Thank you for your attention!November 7, 2020 at 11:02 pm #48801
We are aware of some plugins that stopped working between 2020 and 2021. Do you have a list of those you notice so we can forward that list to the development team so they can investigate why?November 8, 2020 at 12:07 pm #48826Margaret NewcombParticipant
I don’t know if it has anything to do with it or not but….Yesterday (Saturday Nov 08, 2020), Windows did a rather long update on my putor & following that DELL did a huge update on the putor. All in all in took a couple of hours. After that all of my plugins were not showing in my PSP 2020. I tinkered with it a bit not understanding why they weren’t showing. I finally got some of them to show by going to the FILE LOCATIONs setting in PSP and check marking the box that reads: Allow file format plug-ins to request pre-filtering of support file types. After that I got several of them back but still, many are not. My favorites Alienskin Eyecandy and Superblade Pro are back so that makes me kind of ok until I figure out why the others aren’t showing. Just an fyi, if anyone else is having the isssue since the last updates of windows and/or dell.November 8, 2020 at 8:14 pm #48878
Lokas Software – Filters AP
The ones I miss most are these.
I’m trying to notice the lack of them on demand …
There may be a few more with a problem.November 8, 2020 at 9:28 pm #48879Sara JacksonParticipant
I just found yesterday that Transparency works fine if you install it into Filters Unlimited. It no longer works as a stand-alone.November 8, 2020 at 9:58 pm #48885
Thank You, Sara!
I will try it.
