Do note for Apple computers utilizing the new M1 chip: Photoshop only supports the new plug-ins (based on UXP, under Plugins in the menu) natively on Apple M1. If you want to use legacy plug-ins (under Window in the menu) run Photoshop in the Rosetta mode. If you are a developer, check if you can migrate your plugins from CEP to UXP.
