add a plug in

Jan 3, 2007 6:53 AM

I have PSE 5 and I have an old cd of plug ins. I used the cd to add the plugin in PSE3 and it worked fine. I have tried to add them to PSE5 and have had no luck. I put them in the plugin folder and they seem to load in to that folder but when I try to use filters when the program is open they don't show up. Any suggestions?

    Are you looking in the Filter menu rather than the palette? Filters you add only appear in the menu.

    if they're .8bf plugins, drop them into
    Program Files\Adobe\Photoshop Elements 5.0\Plug-Ins
    (note - NOT in an additional folder there)

    Restart PSE and they should be there.

    If they have an installer, run the installer and restart.

    They should show up at the bottom of the Filters menu - IF they're compatible with Elements 5.

    What plugins are they?

    Also, do you mean plug-ins and not actions?

    yep - TONS of 'em! Google "Photoshop Plugin" and see what I mean....

    What kind of files are they that you want to add - plugins are (generally) *.8bf; Actions are *.atn - - ?

    I am trying to install both plug-ins and personal actions (actions I created)

    They are for CS6.   Want to copy them from a Windows 7 machine to a Windows 8 machine

    Are you using CS6, Nimrod? If so you are asking in the wrong place. This forum is for photoshop elements, which behaves quite differently from CS where actions are concerned. You should ask in the Photoshop forum:

    If you are asking about PSE, it's not clear what you're asking, or which version of PSE you have.
