Hi All,

Ok so here’s a short Public Service Announcement before we dive into the weekend for those of you like me who use Plug ins from both Topaz and OnOne 🙂

If you’ve recently upgraded to the new Photoshop CS6 and find your Plug ins aren’t showing up, here’s how to resolve the issue in double quick time so there’ll be no need to keep saving and opening images in alternate versions:

Topaz
For Mac:
Go to your preferences menu in Photoshop and select Plug-ins. Check / enable the Additional Plug-ins Folder option then click Choose. After that, please navigate to: Macintosh HD -> Library -> Application Support and select the Topaz Labs folder. Then click save / OK to save this back to Photoshop. Back in Photoshop click OK to save your changes, then restart Photoshop. Once Photoshop opens, go to your Filter menu and you should be able to access Topaz.

For Windows:
Go to your preferences menu in Photoshop and select Plug-ins. Check / enable the Additional Plug-ins Folder option then click Choose. After that, please navigate to: C: \ Program Files and select the Topaz Labs folder. Then click Choose  (or it may say Save / OK) to save this back to Photoshop. Back in Photoshop click OK to save your changes, then restart Photoshop. Once Photoshop opens, go to your Filter menu and you should be able to access Topaz.

OnOne
If you’ve installed CS6 on the same system as your onOne Software product and the onOne product does not appear, make sure to install the latest version of your onOne Software product in order for it to appear in CS6.

Right that’s all from me for today so have a great weekend and whatever you’re up to have a good one,

Enjoy 🙂

    Hej Glen
    The Topaz file that I have in my programs includes adjust and Denoise, I tried the method and it worked, but when I go to filters and klik on Topaz I only can see Topaz Adjust. How come?
    And one more thing please. Can this method that you explained work only with one Plugin. What can I do if I have several such as Nik software.
    Best regards and thanks 4 the tip.
