Or make a folder called "All Plugins" and dump them all in there.

When you unzip your files, all the image files that make up a plugin will be in one main root folder. Drag the entire folder into the plugins directory, do not just pull the picture files out of the unzipped folder.

Check out chapter 2.3 in the AlamDV2 manual, cunningly titled 'Installing Plugins'.

You need Adobe Acrobat Reader to view the manual. It can be downloaded from here:
