After installing Lightroom CC, it has a link to edit in Photoshop but it has not 'found' Topaz Denoise. Any suggestions?

It will now show up in the Edit In drop down list.

I did what you recommended, however the problem remains... LrC doesn't even open the dialog asking if I want a copy with Lightroom updates, if I'm going to use the original, etc...

Hi @al_perez ,

 

Sounds like you may have a different problem than what is mentioned in this post (which is already marked as "answered").

 

To make sure you get the focus in helping you solve your problem, please start a new thread, and include some details about your system (OS version, LrC version, etc), what exact steps you are taking, and what happens. Screen shots showing your actions are helpful as well.

Hello Michael! Thanks for answering! Answering your requests:

No matter which way I try (alt+ctrl+E or by the menu) the software freezes.

Even the window to choose what file I want to use (copy with LrC adjustments, original, etc...) doesn't open... I hope you can find out what's wrong and help me fix it.

Hi Al,

 

It looks like you have done the right steps. I have the same system as you (Windows 10 21H1, LrC 11.0.1, and Topaz DeNoise AI 3.2.0). My system works just fine - when I choose to Edit in..., I get the dialog asking to edit original or copy, etc, and then Topaz launches correctly.

 

Have you verified that Topaz DeNoise runs correctly in stand-alone mode?

 

I would suggest the next troubleshooting step would be to unistall and reinstall Topaz DeNoise AI, as it should find LrC, and install itself as a plug-in editor automatically. After uninstalling, I would remove the "Edit In" entry that you have just to be sure, then reinstall Topaz DeNoise AI and see if that helps.

 

If that doesn't help, the next step I would take after that is to restore LrC Preferences to default.

Let us know what you find.

Hi Michael! Thank you for the support!
I've reinstalled Topaz Denoise but that didn't solve my problems. So I tried restoring the LrC Preferences to default and that (finally) solved the issues!
I'm grateful for your help!
