How to install Krita Plugin

The plugin is a self-contained piece of code that can expand the capabilities of the application. In this article, I will describe how to install the plugin zipped in an archive.

To install the plugin follow these steps:

  1. Go to Settings – Configure Krita – Python Plugin Manager
  2. Make sure “Python Plugin Importer” is enabled
  3. Restart Krita if “Python Plugin Importer” was disabled
  4. Go to Tools – Scripts – Import Python Plugin, select zip file with a plugin
  5. Restart Krita
  6. Go to Settings – Configure Krita – Python Plugin Manager, Enable just installed plugin
  7. Restart Krita
  8. At this point you should have your plugin activated

Please note that steps from 1 to 3 you need to do only once.

To update the plugin you need to do pretty much the same steps as for installation.
