Normally you put 8bf filter/plugins in the photoshop cs6 plugins folder.

 

On windows for 64 bit phtoshop cs6 that would be C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Photoshop CS6\Plug-Ins

They could be 32 bit filters.

 

You should have a 32 bit version of photoshop cs6 in

 

C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\Adobe Photoshop CS6\Plug-Ins

 

You don't need to double click on the 8bf filters, since putting them in the plugins folder is all that is required.

Is there any way to tell if an 8bf file is 32 bit or 64 bit?
