Plugins for Photoshop, Elements, Lightroom, PSP & others

Commercial Photoshop Panels

Photoshop panels (or more precisely Photoshop extensions) run in Photoshop CS4 and higher.
Some older ones only work in Photoshop CS5, CS6 and CC. Most panels do not work in Photoshop CC 2014 anymore.
After installing them with the Adobe Extension Manager, you can find them on the Window > Extensions menu in Photoshop.
