How do I remove a downloaded neural filter from my local disk?

Community Beginner ,

So I downloaded the Photo Restoration neural filter to test it. The download was nearly 900 MB. After playing with it for a little bit, I don't think I need that tool. How do I remove it from my local disk? That's a large amount of data to have on your disk if you're not going to use it. But I don't see an option to remove the filter.

 

I'm on a Mac, Ventura 13.3.1.

 

Thank you in advance for any help!

Awesome! Thank you so much for the info. I just deleted all contents of the PluginData folder. On relaunch, the Presets folder (within PluginData) was regenerated and all downloaded filters were gone. Problem solved.

 

But, honestly, I don't understand why that is not an option in the app. I mean, if you can download plug-ins and filters, you should also be able to easily uninstall them. Or is that naive of me?

Normally I wouldn't fret about 900 MB - if you are that concerned I would be reviewing my HD usage to make sure I always have at at least 500 GB free.

There’s nothing naive about your suggestion. It would be nice to be able to delete these easily, like for students who could only afford a laptop with 256GB storage. You should suggest that as a feature request in the Ideas section of this community. For example, request that there be a Delete option for any filter in the list, or maybe right-click a filter and choose Delete.

Hi, Poelsheikh

This thread is from Photoshop 2021, so in Photoshop 2023, "22" becomes "24", and in Photoshop 2024, "22" becomes "25".

Can't find that either? .

Hello,

That's my problem, I can't find this path. There is no AppData in Users although I found it via search. But then there is no roaming. Is it possible that those maps are hidden?

Yes, they may be hidden. The Adobe help article that lists a lot of the settings locations (Preference file functions, names, locations | Photoshop) anticipates that you might run into this, so it links to another Adobe help article that tells you how to get to the hidden locations (Show hidden files and folders in Windows, or for Mac users, Can't see user library files in macOS).

I have the same issue but things must have changed since April.  I am running PS 2024 25.0.1 and Ventura 13.6 and there isn't a PluginsStorage subdivision in the UXP folder.   I would like to delete the neural filter I downloaded as I will not be using it.

Thanks.

@MarkNF I have the same - it is stored in the User Library not the system.

In Finder Menu GO hold the Opt key to show the hidden user Library. Then navigate to the UXP folder.

It's so infruriating! My PS is installed on another drive because my C drive is a small SSD, and yet because Creative Cloud MUST be installed on the same drive as the OS any free space is always being sucked up by stray Adobe files. Reality and Adobe only ever seem to bump into other when buying Rizzla papers! Neural filters on my system are currently 16GB!!!
