Plugins and 8bf compatibility

:arrow: 8BF filters in 64-bit

They must be placed in the [8bf_64] folder.
Usually the filename should contain "64" somewhere.
They are accessible with the command [8BF > Filter]

:arrow: 8BF filters in 32-bit

They must be placed in the [8bf] folder.
These plugins are then accessible with the command [Filter > PhotoBridge*] (in PhotoFiltre 11).
(you can configure the folder containing these filters)
==> All 8BF working with PhotoFiltre Studio X, also works with PhotoBridge

:arrow: Plugins in 64-bit

These are the native plugins for PhotoFiltre 11. They must be placed in the [Plugins_64] folder.
Usually the file name should end with "_64.pfl".
Depending on the type of plugin, they are accessible with the menu Filter, Image, File and Tools.

:arrow: Plugins in 32-bit

These are the old 32-bit plugins from PhotoFiltre Studio. They must be placed in the [Plugins] folder.
These plugins are then accessible with the command [Filter > PhotoBridge*] (in PhotoFiltre 11).
Import type plugins are not supported, nor plugins that are too "specific".
==> see the [Appendices] section (below) for the list of compatible 32-bit plugins

(*) PhotoBridge
This application is developed in 32-bits to guarantee the compatibility of plugins and 8bf in 32-bit.
It is located in the [Plugins] folder and serves as a bridge between PhotoFiltre 11 and 32-bit libraries.

If you have manufacturer software you can use it directly, otherwise here are 2 free utilities:
- NAPS2 (Not Another PDF Scanner 2):
- EsayScan (Follow the tutorial proposed by Tom): ... oogle.html
