How to install Photoshop plugins

Launching the plugin installer
Most Photoshop plugins now have an installer that automatically finds Photoshop plugin folders and installs the plugin. You should always try to run the installer first:
Manually Finding the Photoshop Plugins Folder
If the plugin comes in the form of a zip archive, you must open it and manually copy the file to the Photoshop plugins folder.

If you use Photoshop CC (for example, version 2013-2017 or later) on Windows, the plugins are stored in the folder:

C: Program FilesCommon FilesAdobePlug-insCC

Before you install the plugin in Photoshop, you need to know that for older versions of the application, the plugins folder is a subdirectory of the Photoshop folder:

C: Program FilesAdobe [Photoshop Version] Plug-ins

If you have problems with the search, use the “Search for files or folders” in the “Start” menu. Then search for files or folders named “Plug-ins”. As a result, you will get a list of folders, one of them should be a folder of Photoshop plugins.

When you find the plugins folder, try installing the plugin again. Most installers have a panel that allows you to select an arbitrary folder. At this step, you need to specify the Photoshop plugins folder that you just found. The next time you start Photoshop, the installed plug-in should be in the “Filters” menu:
Add an additional Photoshop plugins folder
If you have installed Photoshop CS6 (or an earlier version), you can “force” Photoshop to look for the plugin in the additional folder in which the plugins are installed. In Photoshop, select the menu item Editing – Settings – External modules and working disks:
In the window that opens, check the box for the ”
Additional plugins folder. ” Then click the “Select” button and navigate to the folder in which Photoshop plugins are installed:

You can use this option to specify the plugins folder that is used by all graphical programs on your computer. You can also try using the Photoshop CC plugins shared folder:
C: Program FilesCommon FilesAdobePlug-insCC

After you add the plugin to Photoshop, you need to exit the program and restart it. At the next start, all compatible plugins in this folder should appear in the “Filters” menu.
