Huge List Of Highly Extensible Photoshop Plugins

Posted in Freebies, Tools, Web Design5 years ago • Written by 12 Comments

Photoshop plugins are very powerful addons to Adobe Photoshop, which many people seem to forget. Plugins are small extensions to make Photoshop even more extensive while retouching photos, adding simple filter effects and more. I selected separate plugins and featured them, however there were also many huge collections of plugins, so it didn’t make sense to copy&paste massive loads of text and images – I just put screenshot and link to them in that case. Hope You’ll enjoy this one and feel free to add Your comment about Your favorites and maybe links I didn’t list here.

Photoshop plug-ins are .8bf files. After downloading a plug-in, simply place it in the presets>plug-ins folder of the Photoshop’s installation folder (creating a folder with a name defining the plug-in & placing the plug-in files inside the folder will make it more organized).

In this You’ll find everything You need – facial and portrait, teeth, lips, eye retouching, background remove as well as simple color adjustments in video and image-based tutorials.
