I just upgraded to PSE 2022.  My Topaz and NIK plug ins are gone.  How can I get them back as a plug-in?

Did you remove old versions on the upgrade? If not the plugins can still be used in the old. Anyone with plugins is recommended to do that.

Plug-ins do not automatically transfer when you upgrade versions of Elements. Each version is independent.  However, you can install the plug-ins again. 

 

On Windows, you can also simply copy the contents of the C:\Program Files\Adobe\Photoshop Elements [YOUR OLD VERSION NUMBER]\Plug-Ins folder to the C:\Program Files\Adobe\Photoshop Elements 2022\Plug-Ins folder.   Do not overwrite any files that may already be present in the new folder.

 

I don't know the location of the Plug-Ins folder for Macs but I assume something similar will work there too.

No, you can not. Photoshop 2022 does not have a corresponding Elements folder.
