Hey

 

I'd like to write some plugins for photoshop in c++ but when I go to > https://www.adobe.io/photoshop/uxp/guides/uxp_for_newbies/

 

I just get 404...  I checked that page 6 months ago, it had the same error.

Where do I go to learn the basics?

 

I would also like to understand why the official SDK documentation uses documents from 1999 version 1.6 release 1... I mean... really?


TIA!

Hi there! UXP is so new that the documentation has been moving around a lot. UXP is the new 2020 modern JavaScript API. Here's a good place to start: Getting Started with UXP for Photoshop  There are four different Photoshop APIs. The C++ SDK really does date back to 1999, but it's been updated for 2021: Photoshop Plugin Support for Apple Silicon; Required Recompile for C++ Plugins. (I'm still working on that article.) This post would be better placed here: SDK  Or consider asking about U...

@greless Well these apis, I want to get docs. Specifically UPX for newbies. I'd like to learn how to make "hello world" and so on with upx.

Or consider asking about UXP in the new developer forums here: Photoshop

Hai @erinferinferinf  !

Apology, long time no time to try it out again.

 

I'm afraid the UPX won't work for me as I want to work on opencolorIO > OpenColorIO

 

Their photoshop plugin requires libs from photoshop SDK 2021. 

 

Where can I find them ?

TIA

 

 

Scratch that, I found the SDK!
