I have recently purchased the Topaz Labs software. In particular, I am trying to use Denoise, sharpen and gigapixel. 

 

I have spent a couple hours today trying to figure out how to get it to work.

 

I came across a support page for Topaz that says it is not compatible with PS 2021: https://help.topazlabs.com/hc/en-us/articles/115004587027-Adobe-Photoshop-Configuration-guide-Using-...

 

However, I have also come across a thread here where a user claims to have gotten it to work, on Windows though: https://community.adobe.com/t5/photoshop/unable-to-install-topaz-plugin-in-ps-2021/m-p/11587037?page...

I have followed these steps, but it did not work on my Mac.

 

Other threads seem to be dated (apparently version of PS matters) and generally seem to suggest uninstalling, restarting, and reinstalling, which I have been through. 

 

I had also come across another Topaz support page: https://support.topazlabs.com/hc/en-us/articles/218382688-Accessing-Topaz-Labs-in-Photoshop-CC

However, the Photoshop Utility (method 2) did not support anything past PS 2018. Reinstallation previously didn't work (method 1) and I did not have a Topaz Labs folder in my Application Support (method 3)

 

I'm at a loss for how to get this to work as a plug in. My understanding is that I should be able to access it from the filter menu and I just can't.

I have actually managed to solve my problem. a last ditch effort, I went into the newly installed Denoise in my Applications. I right clicked show package contents, resources > PS_plugins > then grabbed that file and copied it into the plug ins folder in PS. It seems to have done the trick.

OMG, this worked PERFECT!  Only difference for me is that I had to paste mine into the "Required" --- "Filters" PS Plug-Ins folder and Topaz was added back to my drop down list after that.  Thank you so much!!!!

Have you tried following this workaround? >>> https://help.topazlabs.com/hc/en-us/articles/360038903312-Cannot-Access-DeNoise-AI-as-a-Plugin-from-...

 

I did and it worked. The Denoise AI will ask you to login on your Topaz Labs account. But the Denoise 6 will be like the usual one. So that's what I did and got the Denoise 6 working again.
