The latest Photoshop CC 2018 Upgrade has made my Nik plug-ins disappear.  While I used to know how to re-install them, I'm embarrassed to admit that I have completely forgotten.  Does anyone remember how?  Many thanks in advance.  :wub:

Or run the reinstall from the email.

Run the reinstall.

Then open FONT BOOK and make sure ARIEL FONT is not double installed. If it is, delete the duplicate. You should be good to go.

Many thanks for the advice, Art and Dennis. 

 

Unfortunately, my version of Nik predates DxO.  While I still have the original download email, the link is now dead.  Because I run an iMac, I checked both the Applications and Downloads folders, for an install program.  No luck.

 

True, I could download the "new" version from DxO, but Art has well documented their business practices.  Further, it seems to work fine in LR, and going back and forth from LR to PS is seamless.  So for now, I'll use that as a "work around".

 

I foresee the day when my current version of Nik will disappear from LR also.  That is when I will look at alternatives.  DxO has not made a good impression on me.  <_<

Thanks, Herman.  The link also works for me, so I'll try it later this week.

 

My question is:  if DxO now sells Nik, how is Google still able to offer it's version?  Also, the version was dated July 9th, so back to question 1.  :)

???  What is a "stuffed version"?  Is this like stuffing a wild bikini?  Sorry, I couldn't resist.  :lol:

When I downloaded free, it comes in a StuffIt folder. A compressed file.

I can upload it to your Dropbox.

You double click on it, it uncompressed and you install.

This is a clean google file. Safe.

Sounds good, Art.  I'd like to take you up on your offer.  Let me know if you have any Dropbox access problems.

OK, Mark, send me your drop box information by email.

 

Use my gmail account.

 

Or, I may have it, give me a few minutes.  I think I do.  I have your B&W and Marvin pic from it.

Mark,

 

I sent you a WeTransfer.

 

Easier.

 

Look for an email, follow the link.  Could take a few minutes as I upload.

2019 Update:  I just installed Photoshop 2020 and guess what disappeared?  If you guess my old version of the Nik Collection, you're right!  However, thanks to Art's original link, I had the problem rectified in minutes!  It actually took me longer to remember which Dropbox Directory I had placed this in than it did to actually install.  :wub:   

 

Thanks again, Art.  That truly is the gift that keeps on giving!  :)  :)  :)

I still use my NIK software every time for editing when necessary.

I'd even be prepared to forfeit upgrading if I knew in advance that there would be a potential compatibility issue...

:lol:

I love it.  The best part, it is FREE, GIVEN AWAY FREE ... FREE! Boooya!

Still using mine, no issues.

DxO laid a real egg with this software when they did a cosmetic change and effectively tried to screw the base! People got really upset over it.  Since then, they have come up with another update, but to be honest, I will ignore them, probably for a few years to come until something really radical changes.  Not at all impressed with DxO.

Don Giannatti had nice things to say about the DxO version, but why would I fork over boodles of cash when I still have access to a free version that works?  At least for now.  :rolleyes:

You trust Don for having an unbiased opinion?  He teaches workshops on software, lighting etc.  I am not sure I would trust his opinion.  You get more people coming to you if your review is positive, especially, when so many people have NIK.

Just a thought.

Nobody has an "unbiased" opinion.  However, after working with Don for over a year, I greatly respect his opinion - just not enough to fork over cash to DxO!  :lol:   As long as my Google version works, I'll keep using it.  :)
