    Hi,

    I would like to install the editor extension: http://forum.unity3d.com/threads/released-free-open-source-unity-psd-importer.254650/ which allows me to import .psd layers into my project, but I am having trouble installing the extension (simply because I do not know how to install editor extensions in unity).

    Would someone please be able to explain how such extensions are installed, referring to the example given or not?

    There are lots of files in the extension, including editor and properties folders, and several different scripts, and I have no idea what to do with them.

    Thanks in advance!

    Hey there,

    You just put all the files in your project, that is it.

    Editor scripts are the same thing as your game scripts except for the fact that they don't get built when you go to build you game. What makes them Editor scripts is the fact that they are in an Editor folder. (not 100% true but I will keep it simple)

    Then how do you get to use the extension you're trying to use?
