I have read reviews about a plug-in offered by Alienskin Software that emulates different types of film for digital photographs and am seriously considering buying it. I have an AMD Turion 64 with 1 GB RAM, WinXP, and would be using the plug-in in conjunction with Photoshop Elements 3.0. However, the system requirements for processor speed says 2.0GHz and my processor is rated at 1.6 GHz. Would this prevent my computer from running the plug-in, or would it just run slowly? If anybody has an answer, please respond.

Are you referring to "Exposure"?
In any case, minimum system requirements usually mean if you meet them, at best it will run slowly.
Some programs check hardware configuration during setup and will not permit installation if system requirements are not met. You simply get a message stating so. Some don't and just let you do the install anyway. Before you fork out any cash only to find it won't install, or it's a real slug, try the free demo first.
As a general rule, if you don't meet the minimum system requirements, it's best to just take a pass and perhaps find something else.
