Photoshop SDK: vendor name and About dialog for my plugin. How not to violate the terms of use?


Level 1

I am developing a plugin using Photoshop SDK.
Clause 6.2 of the Adobe Developer Additional Terms ( states:
1. My plug-in should be in the Adobe SDK menu item, but not in the Some name menu item (see image).
2. About Dialog of My Plugin should contain information about Adobe (see image).
Did I understand correctly?
Thanks for the help.

Hi @SDKuserID ,


Just to clarify, this is a C++ Photoshop plugin, correct?


Also, are you asking because you have submitted for review and were rejected? Or are you asking proactively to make sure your plugin is reviewed successfully?

I think the "About" or "Info" screens are screens like this:

I'm not a lawyer, but I think what it means is that you shouldn't write a plugin that interferes with or obscures that particular window.


The way I read it, it isn't about menu items at all.
