The file extension 8BP marks plugins for the image processing software Adobe Photoshop. With these plugins additional functions, such as new effects or the support of other graphic formats in Photoshop nachrsten. Adobe Photoshop uses various 8b endings for different plugin types. 8BP files are common import plugins for older Photoshop versions.
8BP files come in the plugin folder (plugins) located inside the main Photoshop folder. It should be noted that not all plugins are compatible with all versions of Photoshop and when using the 64-bit version usually also a customized version of the plugin is needed.
In addition, one must select the plugins for its platform, since those for Windows Photoshop do not work together with the Mac version of Photoshop. However, the plugins for the Mac version usually have no extension or the official extension 8bpi.
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 plug-in interface for 8BP files.
