There is a limit to the number of sub-menus the filter menu can have -
26 sub-menus in total (that is, including the sub-menus for
Photoshop's own filters) if my memory serves me right. If your filters
try to make more than 26 sub-menus, they won't be allowed to do so,
instead they'll be shoved into the "other" sub-menu.
The solution? Either go with djo's tip and re-organize your filters,
or uninstall or disable the filters you don't use. To disable a
filter, rename the filter file. I normally go from "filename.8bf" to
"filename.8b_", but I've also been told that you can rename them to
"~filename.8bf". Disabling a filter this way keeps it in your plug-ins
folder, but Photoshop won't load it.
