PSPI is a GIMP plug-in which allows it to use Photoshop plug-ins. Download PSPI from Gimp.org.

To install it, copy the entire contents of PSPI into the GIMP Plug-ins folder (if you’re running Linux, make sure you copy both the PSPI plug-in and the PSPI.exe, or it will not work) and restart The GIMP, then open the Filters menu and you will see a new entry called "Photopshop Filters Plug-In Settings". Select this option and then use the dialog box to navigate to the folder where your Photoshop plug-ins are located. Also, make sure you store all future Photoshop plugins into this folder.
