So I downloaded the Photo Restoration neural filter to test it. The download was nearly 900 MB. After playing with it for a little bit, I don't think I need that tool. How do I remove it from my local disk? That's a large amount of data to have on your disk if you're not going to use it. But I don't see an option to remove the filter.
I'm on a Mac, Ventura 13.3.1.
Thank you in advance for any help!

Awesome! Thank you so much for the info. I just deleted all contents of the PluginData folder. On relaunch, the Presets folder (within PluginData) was regenerated and all downloaded filters were gone. Problem solved.
But, honestly, I don't understand why that is not an option in the app. I mean, if you can download plug-ins and filters, you should also be able to easily uninstall them. Or is that naive of me?
Normally I wouldn't fret about 900 MB - if you are that concerned I would be reviewing my HD usage to make sure I always have at at least 500 GB free.
There’s nothing naive about your suggestion. It would be nice to be able to delete these easily, like for students who could only afford a laptop with 256GB storage. You should suggest that as a feature request in the Ideas section of this community. For example, request that there be a Delete option for any filter in the list, or maybe right-click a filter and choose Delete.
Thanks you! I just posted the suggestion. I am new here, so I'm still kind of finding my way around.
Thank you so much! Exactly what I needed.
