To the best of my understanding, an plug-in does this:

Converts your RAW Photo to TIF or PSD with or without corrections and with a new name and forwards it to the plugin target application

waits in the background as you use the new program for additional processing

And in general:

when you are done with the additional program processing and save will intercept and forward the save to the original directory it came from and if necessary issue a refresh command so the newly processed photo shows up in the original program for further processing (completing the round trip ).

All plugins do this to a greater or lesser extent

On1 had a series of exe modules in the program directory which could each be called by another program and that functionality will seemingly change in 2022. On1 users will be able to use plugins designed to be called by PS or LR to add that functionality to On1 use. On1 users can use that functionality to call Affinity or Luminar for example from On1. Adobe customers or for example affinity users who used to call the effects module from with a PS plug-in will have to use the new plugins as they will no longer see separate modules to call.

This is my best guess in following the development emails I have been getting, but no definitive word from the developer exists


Thank you for the reply Steve.  Do you have PS CC?  Go up along the top where it says "plugins".  Browse those and you'll see the new breed of plugins that work directly inside of PS CC, so there is no round trip like we are used to.
