Here's a nifty little tip for using PS filters with GIMP when you can't get them to work directly in GIMP: use irfanview or xnview in combination with GIMP. It's a pretty cool solution! Enjoy! If you've download this before, there's been an update. If you couldn't get some filters to work, redownload the tutorial and follow the link to get some required dlls. It just might do the trick.
Just click the Download to Desktop button, open the zip file and save the image and html folder to a convenient location. Double-click the html file and get those filters to work.
*Also, please let me know if you download. It's nice to get feedback from people!*
