Okay so I downloaded WinRar with no problems, however I still can't seem to open the plugins in the BoltBait pack. When I go to download Boltbait pack an icon pops up stating "Do you want to open or save this file". I clicke on "open" and it brings up all the different pluin icons in the pack in WinRAR. If I double click on an icon (for ex. feather.dll), it brings up all kinds of lettering on a notepad. When I right click on the icon it gives a list of options.....Select all, Add files to archive, Extract to specified folder, view file, test archive files,etc....Am I even in the right place and what do I choose?
I tried extracting the file to Local Disk C, the to Program files folder, to Paint.NET and into my Effects folder. When I go to opent the Effects folder it brings up all the plugins (feather.dll,colorbalance.dll,etc.). When I right click to open one of them, such as feaether.dll, it brings up a box with options: Open with(notepad, internet explorer, or choose program). It also show options to Add to Archive, Add to Feather.rar, compress and email,etc...
Do you have any idea what I need to do or am doing wrong? Maybe I'm just an idiot? Do you think I should purchase a program such as Photoshop? Would that be easier to try to copy & paste an image onto another and make it look realistic?
Thanks for all your help.....you've been GREAT!
