I use vintage Pixelgenius PhotoKit plugins. These still work flawlessly in Photoshop 2021 in Catalina. The three plugins are now free, here: http://www.pixelgenius.com
Can anyone here help me by testing these in Photoshop 2021 in Big Sur on an intel Mac? This would be greatly appreciated.

Ok, short answer is yes the set of plugins work for me in Big Sur 11.0.1, 20B29. In particular I'm running Adobe PS 2021, 22.0.0. I put the PhotoKit Bundle into the path: Applications/Adobe Photoshop/Plug-ins as instructions say. At first the plugins worked but it couldn't show Preview. I quit PS and checked via Terminal if the plugins were quarantined and they were not. Started PS again and now the preview works.

I'd recommend checking your plugins' quarantine status using their instructions. My Big Sur drive has SIP and ARV security enabled; perhaps yours is disabled.

Oh my gosh, thank you. I do only B&W, having worked in the darkroom for over thirty years. The way Photokit works is perfect for my analog mind. I usually have an old laptop to check things like this out, but it doesn't qualify for Big Sur, so just simply updating the iMac wasn't worth the risk - the bulk of my work involves using Photokit (ignoring the other two plugins): jamescraigphotography.com. You have made an old-timer's day/month/year. Now if only the Beamer app would get updated I'd be set to go. Thanks again...
