I am going to post nik collection complete software for you for any. Show you how to add Nik software Color.
If, like me, you are loving what the plugins of the Nik Collection and Photoshop CC 2018 can do to improve your photographs, rejoice. While their aren’t officially supported by the latest Photoshop release, not all hopes are lost yet: we still can use the Nik Collection with Adobe Photoshop CC 2018!UPDATE: DxO just released their Nik Collection 2018 by DxO, which solved all problems: read my post THE “NEW” DxO NIK COLLECTION FOR PHOTOSHOP CC 2018 for further details!As a user of Nik Collection you are likely well aware that Google, after buying the Nik suite, first made it available for free and then basically killed it by stopping further developments with no apparent reasons. Since they have no competing offer in their portfolio, there is nothing that seems to justify such a move: whatever the reason, they did it anyway. Too bad, since Nik Collection was a great plugin suite, offering powerful tools such as SilverEfex Pro and ColorEfex Pro. The fact that Google stopped developing the Collection, though, just means that Google is not updating it anymore, not that it suddenly stopped working.What does this mean, in practice, for us Nik Collection’s users? Basically, it means that when you update to the next version of Photoshop CC, Photoshop will create a new folder, in this case called “Adobe Photoshop CC 2018”. Your Nik plugins, however, will be left in the old “Adobe Photoshop CC 2017” folder, in a subfolder called “Plug-ins/Google” and they will not be automatically ported to the folder of your new version of Photoshop CC 2018.After updating Photoshop CC to the last 2018 version and launching the program, therefore, you are very likely to notice the disappearance of your Nik plugins from your newly updated software.
The plugins, however, are still working fine – and with a little trick you’ll be able to make them work for you in Photoshop CC 2018 as well, provided that you still have an installer for them. Let’s see how to do that.
To keep using Nik Collection in Photoshop CC 2018, start by deleting the Plug-ins/Google folder in your old “Adobe Photoshop CC 2017” directory, and delete the “Nik Collection” folder you’ll find in the Applications folder as well. Once you have done that, start the Nik Collection installer (the last version should be called nikcollection-full-1.2.11.dmg) and follow the instructions. After agreeing to the license, you will be asked which compatible host application to add your plugins to; you should see “Adobe Photoshop CC 2018” listed. If you don’t see it, just click the “+” sign on the bottom and browse your Application folder until you find Adobe Photoshop CC 2018. Select the software and complete the installation as per the instructions.That’s it!
Launch Photoshop CC 2018, and you’ll see your Nik Collection there, where it should be. More, if you had any old presets made, they should also be available automatically in the newly installed Nik Collection as they were before updating Photoshop.In conclusion, I am happy to confirm that Nik Collection lovers will be able to use the Nik Collection with Photoshop CC 2018 as well, and I certainly hope that this will be the case for future versions too.
Since there is no guarantee that this will happen, however, in the meantime I will keep my seamless move towards a Nik-independent workflow, either by replacing them with other solutions or by replacing them with Photoshop routines. Hello Neil,thank you for your comment. Sorry to hear about your bad experience with Nik and High Sierra as well, as mentioned before I am still on Sierra, and am not planning on updating any time soon. When I do, it’ll probably be because I got a new iMac Pro when they come out, and I’ll not port my current computer / apps but start from scratch to see if that fixes the problem.

Perhaps you can try and do the same: start with a clean installation, import only your personal settings from your Time Machine but not your apps and reinstall them fresh on High Sierra and see if that fixes the problem.Hope this helps, best regardsVieri. Thank you Vieri, i have only one laptop at the moment, I tried Pho 2015, 2017 and 2018 and now in none of them Nik is working well. But i found a solution that can also help others (till the bug in High Sierra – which is the only reason I can find that causes it – is solved): there is a setting in Nik when finish and go back to Photoshop there are two ways doing that: in a new layer of it transforms the old one. I alwasy used of course to get the Nik layer in a new layer and that one is not working (crashing) burt the other is working!
That means I make first a new file and then I duplicate it back after I am back in Pho. A bit devious but this works and I can use Nik again. But I keep looking for easier solutions. Thanks for you help and time, wish you all the best with your fantstic photography and workshops, Paul. Hello Glenn,thank you for your comment, that would certainly do – though, it would make the Workflow a bit less streamlined, and you’d lose the benefits of using, say, a Smart Object as a copy of your background layer in PS CC to apply Nik to, in order to be able to go back and modify the added effect – which I find invaluable.I just made a fresh install of High Sierra on my new iMac, installed Photoshop, installed Nik, and got it to work just fine – even if, for some reasons, the first time you try and apply a preset, it crashes Photoshop.
Once you reopen it, it will not crash it even applying presets, saving on a different layer or on the same layer, and so on. It just works.Best regards,Vieri. Hi Thanks for article it worked for me with High Sierra and photoshop 2018. It was the settings part in colour Efex pro which I needed to change.
Had tried numerous reinstalls, copy plugins etcthe other thing which I found useful is that someone commented that Lightroom continued to work with Nik, which is another option ie photo edit in colour EfexHowever the issue seemed to be the settings in the Nik module. Before these problems did not even know Google had passed on NIK, will not be around free for much longer I guess.
