Have you encountered a problem with a 8BX file? Don’t you know which program opens a file with this extension? You will find all the information you need about working with a 8BX file here. In the further part of this page we have added a list of programs that should open your 8BX file. It is enough you choose a proper application for your operating system, download and install it.


With the file extension 8BX plugins are marked 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. 8BX files are extension or accelerator plugins, ie expansion or acceleration plugins.

8BX 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 8bxm.

The file extension 8BX refers to extensions that extend Photoshop with technical capabilities. For example, Photoshop uses the supplied mmxcore.8bxm file to use the processor's MMX instructions. It should be noted that such plugins usually do not work in newer versions and can lead to a crash. Therefore you should always use the supplied 8BX file.

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 8bxm files.

How to open a 8BX file? Advice and guidance

Absolutely most often appearing reason that prevents you from opening the 8BX file is the lack of a proper application to support it in your operating system. It is notably the first thing you need to address. When one of the programs to support a 8BX file from the list is already installed, you can try to rerun the file. The system should display a message asking you to choose a primary application to support 8BX files. At this point we are looking for disk space where the application was installed in and we can link it with a 8BX file. Since then, our operating system will use the selected program to support all 8BX files.

Other issues

Despite the described problem with 8BX there may be many more problems. If the existing operations were not effective, get involved with the following matters:

- verify that the 8BX file is not damaged and that it has been downloaded or copied in whole
- verify that the file has a file extension that has not been intentionally changed (for example, if it do not contain other information than its extension suggests)
- make sure again whether the 8BX file type is linked in the operating system with a proper program
- make sure that the file is not infected with a virus and you have up to date software and drivers.
