With the file extension 8BAM plugins are marked for the Mac version of the image processing software Adobe Photoshop. With these plugins, additional functionalities, such as new effects or the support of other graphic formats in Photoshop, can be reprinted. Adobe Photoshop uses various 8b endings for different plugin types. 8BAM files are import plugins.
8BAM files come in the plugin folder (plugins), which is inside the main Photoshop folder. It should be noted that not all plugins are compatible with all versions of Photoshop, and when using the PowerPC version, a customized version of the plugin is also required.
In addition, one must select the plugins for its platform, since those for Mac OSX Photoshop do not work with the Windows version of Photoshop. However, the plugins for the Windows version always have the official extension 8ba.
The file extension 8BAM refers to import plug-ins for devices such as scanners or printers. Among other things, some manufacturers such as Epson or Canon for various products make such plugins available for free. This is to ensure optimal integration and use of the functionalities of the device used.
In addition, there are also 8BAM plugins for the cooperation of Photoshop with other programs such as Silverfast Ai.
To see if a plugin is installed correctly, you can get a list of all installed plugins in the submenu Plugins (Windows: Help, Mac OSX: Photoshop). In addition to Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Photoshop Elements also has a plugin interface for 8BAM files.
