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


The file extension VPH marks preference files of the Photoshop plugin Virtual Photographer. With Virtual Photographer you can manipulate the colors and the exposure of an image in different ways. In a VPH file, all settings, such as film type or style of photography, are saved so that they can be reloaded when needed. In addition to some supplied VPH files you can also save your own settings.
Virtual Photographer 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 VPH files can not be loaded directly with the image editing program, but must be stored in one of the specified folders (BW, Color, Extras, Favorites). Then all VPH settings files can be reached via a folding menu in the plugin interface. 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 VPH file? Advice and guidance

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

Other issues

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

- verify that the VPH 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 VPH 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.
