Fixed!: NIK Silver Efex, PS 2019 and High Sierra

Post by minniev »

I hate to buy a new version of the NIK filters if nothing is new in them. I'd rather just get my version, which I paid for before Google bought it and gave it away free, to work. I'll buy the new version if the new owners ever do anything to improve it.

But every time I tried to access the filters from PS, it would appear to load up, let me make changes, and then it would crash, taking PS and my work with it.

The simple solution was: In PS, add a duplicate layer before going into NIK. Then once sending this new layer into the NIK filter, look for the little box that says Settings on the lower left. Click it and choose the button that says "After Clicking OK" and select "apply filter to current layer".

Voila, my NIK works again! No more crashes.

Never had that problem you describe, but was very kind of you to let everyone know.

I had given thought to the new version, but like you, I purchased Nic collection prior to the Google conversion and felt a little frustrated by not getting a refund since they were giving a free download and refunds up to a certain time period. Not being able to find my proof of purchase didn't help matters either. So I chalked it up as experience and absolutely love the software. Still on the fence to upgrading. Thanks for the info just incase I decide to climb down to the other side of the fence.

Your old deserted storefronts shows the power behind a knowledgable person using Silver Efex !!! Love the image Minnie.
