So, yesterday I figured out how to install a shader mod together with optifine for the 1.8 version of Minecraft.
Because my computer is so bad it took me some hours to start and restart Minecraft with the different versions untill I found one which worked for me.
And in this tutorial I'll try to let you know what I found out.
I'm not shure if this will work for everyone, I can't test it, so please don't forget about this.
I'm playing Minecraft on Windows 7, I'm not shure if this information is necessary but I'm shure it won't hurt to know that.

So here are the links you'll need:

Optifine  and GLSL Shaders Mod.

First off all you need to run Minecraft once in the 1.8 version. Then you can close Minecraft again and click the Opifine link.
Now you have to choose between the different versions of Optifine you want to download and for me only the
OptiFine 1.8.0 HD U B6 worked together with the shaders mod, so download the Optifine 1.8.0 HD U B6 version.

Now you need to download the shaders mod. It's a bit hidden on the page, so you have to klick the small "1" to download the shaders mod.
So klick the "1" and download the shaders mod.

Then it'll go on fast, you have to dubble click the Optifine 1.8.0 HD U B6 jar you just downloaded and a new optifile profile will be created.
Then you have to dubble click the ShadersMod-v2.4.11mc1.8 jar you've downloaded and the only thing you have to do is to choose the OptiFine 1.8.0 HD U B6 version you've just installed and that's it.

Now you can start your minecraft luncher and if everything is right you'll find a new profile called "1.8-ShadersMod" and on the right side there'll stand "Ready to play Minecraft 1.8-Optifine_HD_U_B6-ShadersMod2.4.11."

The only thing you'll have to do now is to press the play button and we're done.

I hope this will work for all of you and that I could help someone. :-)

Now a version with some pics:

First click on Optifine and then choose this:
undefined
Then wait 5 sec
undefined

and then click on the right side.
undefined

Then again one click
undefined
And you'll get to this
undefined

and in you're download folder you'll find this:
undefined

Now to the GLSL shaders mod, click GLSL Shaders Mod.
and now click on the small "1"
undefined

then again
undefined

and undefined
 
Then you'll get
undefined

and in you're download folder you'll have both
undefined


Now everything is download. The next thing is to double click the Optifine jar at first
undefined

and you'll get a new profile.
Now you have to double click the shaders mod jar
undefined


Then they'll ask you if you have closed Minecraft, what you did and you say yes.
undefined

Now the important part which I didn't know, you're asked to choose a Minecraft version and you'll choose the one we've installed right now.
undefined

And that's it.

When you now start Minecraft you're launcher should look like this:
undefined

The new profile name on the left "1.8-ShadersMod" and on the right the
"Ready to play Minecraft 1.8-Optifine_HD_U_B6-ShadersMod2.4.11."

So this is it, I hope everything worked well for you and you can make incredible good screenshots now, even of a dirt hut :-)




PS:
If anything here didn't work for you then I'm sorry, I'm not a person who knows much about pcs or programs I only try things and sometimes they work. :-)
I'm also sorry for the bad graphics the arrows but I'm not a graphic guy I only hope that you'll understand what I mean.
If anything here is wrong or doesn't work please let me know.

Have fun :-)

I saw that they have removed some older versions, did you try the H6 Version? Maybe it works with it.

I found a way to get it. they still have their files, just not the links. so you have to put in the url that the download will be at on their site.

What do you mean by "I'm sorry I can't say it"? Anyway I fixed it turns out I had downloaded the wrong optifine version.
