LRMogrify2 and Catalina OS

After installing IOS Catalina I have lost the use of LRMogrify2. I get an error message

"magick cannot be opened because the developer cannot be verified"

"Failed to run Mogrify..more info in the txt file"

It appears to me that a new security feature has been added via Catalina.

How to I get LRMogrify2 to work again?

Thanks for any help in this matter.  NH

Looks like the plugin developer hasn't updated LR/Mogrify 2 to cope with the extra security of Mac OS 10.15 (Catalina).

 

1. Send an email to the developer pointing this out.  See the contact info at the bottom of this page:

https://www.photographers-toolbox.com/products/lrmogrify2.php?sec=faq

 

Suggest that the first time plugin runs, it execute the command "xattr -r -d com.apple.quarantine path", where path is _PLUGIN.path.

e. Confirm when it asks if you really want to open it.

Now run the plugin.

Don't know if this is related. I am on Big Sur with the latest version of Lightroom Classic. Been using Mogrify for years. Recently reinstalled Lightroom Classic and when I try to add back the Mogrify plugin it won't load and the error message just says it won't work without any details. Tried the workaround mentioned above without success. By the way, in the Mogrify folder I have, which I downloaded recently to be sure, the folder your describe as LRMogrify2.lrplugin is called LRMogrify.lrplugin. I emphasize that this is from a recent download of the plugin.

Correction to my previous comment. The folder that John Ellis describes above as LRMogrify2.extras is called LRMogrify.extras in the Mogrify folder I downloaded recently.

At David, have you got the Plug-in working?

I have this plug-in on my system from the very early versions of Lightroom it was a life saver in the early days particularly with the resizing and borders options.

It still functions on my Big Sur system.

I figured it out. Downloaded the plugin again and the LRMogrify subfolder was not empty this time. So, it is working again. Don't know why the plugin sometimes has an empty subfolder folder.

Hmm, I just downloaded and installed LR/Mogrify 2 and the recipe I posted above (edited for the correct folder name) worked for me on Mac OS 11.3.1 / LR 10.4.

 

When I first tried to do an export with the plugin, I got this error:

 

johnrellis_0-1630690943000.png

 

After following the recipe and doing an export again with the plugin, the export proceeded but the plugin produced this error:

 

johnrellis_1-1630691086668.png

 

The solution in this thread successfully worked around that problem.

 

If the recipe still doesn't work, you could try using Macports to install Imagemagick on your Mac and then configuring LR/Mogrify2 to use that version:

 

johnrellis_2-1630691351406.png

 

I haven't tried that and don't know if it work -- one risk is that the plugin may not be compatible with the new version of Imagemagick (the plugin has its own, very old copy of Imagemagick).

I did not get the error message you got. I get this when I try to load the plug-in, including after doing the Control-right click thing on the Magick file: "An error occurred while attempting to load this plug-in.No other details.

That error occurs when you've selected a folder or file that's not the actual plugin. Make sure you've selected LRMogrify2.lrplugin before you click Add Plug-in:

Im also having issues running the plugin on my Imac (Big Sur 11.6.1).
I've followed the steps, located and opened the magick icon. However, I still get the message "filed to run mogrify, export aborted" when trying to export files.
Can anyone point me to the right direction?

Thank you

Please attach here the file LRMogrify2_log.txt that was placed on your Desktop.

 

I downloaded a fresh copy of the plugin and successfully followed the steps described here:

https://community.adobe.com/t5/lightroom-classic-discussions/lrmogrify2-and-catalina-ios/m-p/1074244...

 

So let's figure out what's going wrong with your installation.

Hello,
i've just bought a MacBookAir M2 with Monterey IOS and installed LR CC 12.1.
I downloaded Mogrify 2 (last version 5.10) and I have the same issue and get the message "filed to run mogrify, export aborted" when trying to export files.
I followed the steps given :

a. In Finder navigate to the folder where you placed the plugin.  

b. Right-click LRMogrify2.lrplugin and do Show Package Contents.

c. Open the subfolder LRMogrify2.extras LRMogrify.extras.

d. Hold down the Ctrl key, right-click "magick", and do Open.

e. Confirm when it asks if you really want to open it.

f. Close the Terminal window that appears (ignore what it contains).
But the issue remains the same.
I really don't know what to do now...
Thanks for your help to all !
Olivier (from France 😉 )

@Sharkoliv, after step e, do you see the Terminal window appear?  It should look similar to the screenshot below.  If you see it, please make a screenshot and post it here.  If you don't see it, look for a file LRMogrify2_log.txt that was placed on your Desktop -- attach it to your reply here. I suspect what might be going wrong, and with the screenshot and log file, I might be able to provide a workaround.

Oh, right, you're on Apple Silicon, while the version of ImageMagick included in LR/Mogrify2 is for Intel. You'll need to manually install Apple's Rosetta:

https://derflounder.wordpress.com/2020/11/17/installing-rosetta-2-on-apple-silicon-macs/

 

For some reason Apple doesn't include it automatically with Apple Silicon Macs, and Mac OS isn't smart enough to tell you that you need it.
