All the integration for the Magic Toolbox effects has been done for you so all you need to do is add your small, large and giant images via the products admin page, get a copy of the Magic Toolbox product you want to use and contact us to upload it for you - that's it!

You can add the POWr plugins yourself. Go though the configurator on their site, copy the generated code and then paste it on the pages of your site where you want it to appear. This will need to be pasted into source view.
