  1. What version of PSP are you using for this tutorial? I can't get Pool shadow won't work in X5, X6, or X7 that I have installed on this laptop.

  2. I'm using XI. I really don't know what to tell you about the plug in not working in those versions. I'm sure if you googled it you'll come up with the reason and an answer for it. It may have something to do with the program files.

  3. It was actually the .dlls that were missing. Thanks for the suggestion.
