Let's Learn About Machine Wash Deluxe
Machine Wash Deluxe features four different tabbed sections of the GUI interface to create and fine-tune the plug-in effects. Below we'll discuss an overview of the filter and details about each tabbed section.

Once the plug-in has been successfully registered and launched, you'll see four tabbed sections on the upper left side of the GUI and a preview window on the right.
