Hello, I just got my Photoshop updated to 2021 (previous version 2018). I used the Nik Collection 1.2.11 guite often with my old version so of course I installed this plugin again. But that causes peoblems in PS. Can't work with it anymore. If I open a pic, I can add one new layer with something, I do my editing with this layer and than the pic just dissapears from the PS desktop and I just can see the starting page of PS. Any idea if the old Nik collection just doesn't  work with PS2021 ?

DXO now says its NIK collection is compatible with PS 2021. I upgraded to version 3, checked the GPU box in PS preferences and NIK works as expected.

I think there is no guarantee that the old Nik plugins will work with the newest Photoshop. However, now that DXO has taken over development of the Nik plugins, you can get an updated version of the plugins that is compatible. However, you will have to purchase the upgrade to the latest version.

Sorry I don't have a better solution for you.

Hello Michael,

 

thanks for your answer. I just checked the DxO website and they say, that even the newest Nik Collection 3 doesn't work with PS2021 yet. But they are working on it. Hopefully they will have a working version soon.

I have had the same problem with NIK 2.0. Even though the image disappears, the tab still remains. I save the image and reopen it. All the NIK filter effects stay with the image and eveything works fine after reopening the file. It's an annoyance, but it works.

Hi, try this; Close PS. Go to  the Photoshop 2020 plugins file (mine is located at C>Program Files>Adobe) copy the whole Nik Collection folder from PS 2020 plugins folder. Then paste it in to the plugins folder of PS 2021. Relaunch PS and look under the 'Filters' menu. This worked for me. Good luck.

THANK YOU!! Was so disappointed the old free Nik Collection filters wouldn't install in PS2021 when I updated it. Tried your method and totally worked for me! So happy I can use the free NIK Collection Filters with PS2021 again!! I use them A LOT and have heaps of recipe presets I have created.

I have Nik Collect 3. Same problem with ps 2021, pic just dissapears from the PS desktop after aply layer mask. I temporany fix disabling GPU support on PS menù, but obviously that is no best way...I hope that DXO will fix this problem. PS no problem with PS 2020 , nik collection 3, and GPU support on.

That is what I did. Disable GPS Support in Photoshop and the Free Version of NIK Collection works again.  I guess I will be forced someday to upgrade to the Paid Version as I use the Nik Collection extensively in my editing.

 

To Disable GPU Support

 

Edit - Peferences - Performance and uncheck Use Graphics Processor then close out Photoshop and Restart it.

I disagree. I've the NIK Collection 3.0.8 (paid) and I've the same issue. If I uncheck the Use Graphics Processor, everything works fine. If not, the grey screen is coming. If I use PS 2020, it's fine.

 

Adobe should patch it.

The disabling GPU support seems to work ... for now. btw, I have a paid copy from DxO and have also had the issue. It has been slowing workflow a lot to keep resaving, reopening.

The new DXO NIK Collection 3.3 is on the market, the PS 22.0.1. release too. I installed both of them, the issue the same. The disabling of the GPU support works, but it's really funny: you've a strong PC with a dedicated video card and u cannot use it.

I have exactly the same problem.  Nik Collection 3.3, Photoshop 22.0.1, NVIDIA GeForce GTX1060 with latest Studio driver and the image freezes if a Nik filter is applied to a smart layer if "Use Graphics Processor" is ticked.

This is  user-to-user forum and we do not work for Adobe. If someone PMs you in response to your request, please do not reply as scammers tend to lurk in forums.
