Have you encountered a problem with a Q9R 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 Q9R file here. In the further part of this page we have added a list of programs that should open your Q9R file. It is enough you choose a proper application for your operating system, download and install it.


The file extension Q9R is used to mark Photoshop Plugin Glitterato preference files. Glitterato makes it easy to create starry skies and starry nebulae. In a Q9R file, all settings such as fog color, star density and depth are saved so that they can be reloaded if necessary. In addition to some included Q9R files, you can also save your own settings.
Glitterato also works with Photoshop compatible image editors like Corel PaintShop Photo Pro, GIMP (requires the PSPI plugin) or Paint.Net (requires the PSFilterPdn plugin).
It should be noted that the Q9R files can not be loaded directly with the image editor, but only from the user interface of Glitterato. In addition, the plugin file (extension 8bf) must be located in the corresponding plugin folder of the respective image processing program.

How to open a Q9R file? Advice and guidance

Absolutely most often appearing reason that prevents you from opening the Q9R 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 Q9R 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 Q9R files. At this point we are looking for disk space where the application was installed in and we can link it with a Q9R file. Since then, our operating system will use the selected program to support all Q9R files.

Other issues

Despite the described problem with Q9R there may be many more problems. If the existing operations were not effective, get involved with the following matters:

- verify that the Q9R 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 Q9R 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.
