I am having some issues with plugins. First it would be helpful to know where the heck they are stored. I just installed a new program and wanted the plugin for it to be in PSE (latest version for Mac) - I went through the process from within that software and it says it installed. However, when I try to access it in PSE, I cannot see it (I can see the previous version and also a few plugins for programs I no longer use). It would be very helpful for me to look at the folder in which the plugins are stored. I wish I could include a couple of screenshots so you could see what I'm talking about.
and yes, I completely deleted the program and reinstalled it, rebooted the computer etc, 3 times.
thanks for any help anyone can give me.
The usual place for plugins to install in photoshop elements 2018 on the mac side is.
/Applications/Adobe Photoshop Elements 2018/Support Files/Plug-Ins
On occasion they also get installed in
/Library/Application Support/Adobe/Plug-Ins/Elements 2018
If you don't mind, what plugin are you trying to install?
It seems Luminar 2018 hasn't been updated to recognize photoshop elements 2018.
Do you have another version of photoshop elements installed and if so does Luminar 2018 sow on the Filter list?
Filter>Skylum software>Luminar 2018
You could copy the Luminar2018Plugin.plugin from that elements version to the 2018 version.
thanks, I already did that -- when I figured out that it was in PSE 15, I copied that file into the same place in PSE 2018. After you asked, I went and looked - the file seems to have gotten installed in PSE 13, 14 and 15 but not 18 (or is it 16?) every time in Luminar when I told it to install the plugin, it must have chosen one of the other versions.
there are another set of plugins in a different area in that I can't find anywhere - I'm going to try to send you a screenshot in case you have a clue where I might find these.
/Library/Application Support/Adobe/Plug-Ins/Elements 2018 or 15, 13, etc.
(not your user library, but the macintosh hard drive Library)
Photoshop elements 2018 is actually version 16.
thanks for the suggestion -- I looked in the HD's /Library/Application Support/Adobe/Plug-Ins/Elements 2018
when looking at the plugins, there is only 1 - camera raw. good thought though.I guess I'll keep looking! thanks, Lynne
