How do I Unzip my One-Click Photo Effects Files?

If you are working on a Mac:

  1. Locate the zip file that you downloaded when you purchased your One-Click Photo Effects.

    Downloaded files are often saved to a Downloads folder on your computer’s hard drive.

  2. Once you’ve located the file, unzip it by double-clicking on it. Mac’s Archive Utility will unzip the file and the extracted contents will be placed in a separate folder in the same location as the zip file.

    The folder will have the same name as the zip file.
