The Manga Effect Plug-in 1.2, compatible with Adobe Photoshop and Corel Paint Shop Pro, was developed by the Japanese company TNK Software. The plug-in is designed to increase the productivity of manga artists by reducing the amount of manual work that goes into creating every scene in a graphic novel or comic book.


The Manga Effect Plug-in is designed for installation within the Adobe Photoshop plug-ins folder. To locate the folder, follow this path: Program Files > Adobe Photoshop > Plug-ins. For best results, create a folder to hold the manga plug-in files, and place this folder inside the Photoshop Plug-ins folder.

The Manga Effect Plug-in is built to dramatically emphasise and highlight movement during action scenes. The Speed Lines effect gives the impression that a character or object is moving quickly.

Flash Tool

The Flash tool instantly creates a thought bubble to reflect a character's mental state or internal dialogue.
