p.1 #1 · Nik Installation Problem, Please help!


Something strange going on with my Nik software installation (the recently released complete package) and I dont know how to fix it.

Some plugins appear only Photoshop (HDR) while others appear only in Lightroom (Viveza). How do I get them to all appear in both programs?

Can anyone help?

This is happening on my MacBook Pro.

Thanks!

No issues on my MBPS or iMac running on CS6.

What version of Photoshop and Lightroom?

They should all install in Lightroom when you ran the installer did it show Lightroom as a compatible application? Should be in photot>open in
As for CS3 it shows as incompatible but if you hit the + when you get to compatible applications you can try pointing to the plug-in folder for CS3 and see if it works.

Mac® OS 10.6.8 through 10.8
Intel processor
2GB of RAM (4 GB or more recommended)
Adobe Photoshop CS4 (CS5 for HDR Efex Pro 2) through CS6
Adobe Photoshop Elements 9 through 11
(apart from HDR Efex Pro 2, which is not compatible with Photoshop Elements)
Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 3 through 4
Apple® Aperture® 3.1 or later
32-bit and 64-bit Compatible (HDR Efex Pro 2 is only compatible with 64-bit systems)
For GPU acceleration, an Open GL 3.0 compatible graphics card such as the cards listed below.
If no compatible card is available, GPU acceleration will be disabled and the CPU will be used.

Interesting. HDR showed up in CS3, but not in LR4. I have the latest version of Lightroom so I would have expected all of the plugins to show up there. Since CS3 is not supported, I wont worry about the one that failed to show up there (cant remember which one).

Since HDR did not show up in LR4, I am not sure how to try to correct this. Re-install?

HDR is accessed via export.

Your answer is a bit too cryptic for me. Could you elaborate?

To open HDR Efex Pro 2, follow these steps:
1. Select the image series to be enhanced
2. Navigate to File > Export with Preset
3. Select HDR Efex Pro 2

Or when in library press the Export button and select HDR Efex from drop down.
