This problem from last year, where the old Nik filters would not work with PS 2020, was solved by moving the google folder into the plug-ins folder of photoshop. My Photoshop CC updated last night to 2021, I repeasted the same process that fizxed the problem last year. The old Nik options appeared in the filter menu as they had for PS 2020, but when I used them to edit an image and exited, the edit did not create a new layer or appear back in PS, so it was lost. I cannot figure out how to get the edit to come back into photoshop. So I have the menu items but cannot use the tool. Any suggestions? I am using the old google version of these tools and have not purchased the DxO updates, the old ones worked fine for me. I do want to use the new PS 2021 though. For now I reverted back to PS 2020.

Hi, as a follow on to the message above, I did find a work around where  you set the option in the Nik filter to just replace the original file (making sure you made a duplicate of the layer with the original file before subjecting it to edits). I still have not been able to get the "make a new layer" option to work, but this retains the functionality of the Nik filter set with one additional step.
