I did some browsing and came across this thread on using plugins with PSP:


Basically, it depends on what you define "plugin" as.

I also came across a post on this site (sorry, lost link) where someone reported that NIK support told him the plugin for PSP was a special version, not compatible with other apps and likewise their "normal" versions will not work in PSP.

I might take the suggestion to try the free Silver Efex DL and see what it does in PSP.


I Started with PSP 1 (and probably still have the diskette) and have used plugins since they were added to the PSP workflow. It's been a while since I've added and used plug-ins either in PSP or PS though. I went through a plug-in phase but rarely use any now.

However, I do recall installation issues with some, not installing to the default PSP plug-in directory. In some cases it was a matter of manually moving the files to the proper location. There are some .8bf that make calls to other files and act as stand-alone utilities but as long as the base file is built to the plug-in standard and it is in the correct folder, it will work.
