Why use plugins? In a nutshell, plugins can dramatically speed up the process of fixing photos and images, adding textures or special effects, and much more, whether or not you could do them yourself without a plugin. Many plugins also include features to tweak the plugin settings to your liking, and some allow you to save your settings as presets to reuse, too.

They can be handy, convenient, give high quality results, and be incredibly time-saving.
