    UPDATE 28 October 2008
    The very first version displayed a console, and that was no needed and possible cause of confusion
    This is fixed now if you download before and you found disturbing that console please download the update version and replace the plugin file..download link remain the same

    Filter Factory Converter (+editor and organizer )
    This is Windows version (for Windows Xp Vista) of the Gimp "User Filter" developed in the 1997 by Jens Restemeier, with the help Michael Johannhanwahr ( http://www.icnet.de/ ) for the decompiler code and the user-filter's optimization
    recently resurrected and updated up to Gimp 2.6 by Torsten Neuer ( http://sourceforge.net/projects/gimpuserfilter ) and now compiled for windows by Francois Collard
    The plug-in enables
    1)
    to use the vast number of existing Filter Factory filters
    supported filters formats:
    .8bf ( not all : not all 8bf are Filter Factory filters )
    .ffl
    .afs – ( source file for Filter Foundry link )
    .txt – ( source file for the Plugin Commander link )
    (NOTE in this version 1500 filters already converted are included in the "GUF" folder inside the zip)
    2)
    to create new effects without having to go through the process of learning how to write plug-ins for The Gimp first.
    Another reason of interest is that the Filter Factory language (exactly a more flexible variant used by the Filter Meinsterhttp://www.filtermeister.com/ )is still at the base of most recent ,powerful and flexible PS-compatible filters, that can be used with gimp(with PSPI) as with any program that support PS plugin
    (as most of graphic editor and image viewer available for windows )
    About the plugin name i renamed with something more related to its main functions ,(convert ,edit, use Filter Factory filters )
    This to make the search for the plugin,( here in the registry, as on Google and in the user's Gimp menus), more easy
