Title: Transferring Nik Plugins from CS5 to CS6
Post by: slothead on February 02, 2013, 07:35:51 AM
I just upgraded my PS/CS from 5 to 6 and while the CS5 access was right there in the CS window, the new CS6 app did not "go get" them.  How do I interface the Nik plugins withe CS6 (this is probably elementary, but at the moment I can't see the forest for the trees)?  :)

Best practice is download the most recent versions from the developer and run the actual installer. Trying to copy the plug-ins over to the CS6 Plug-ins folder "may work" but it's not the best way of working. For heaven's sake do NOT direct Photoshop CS6 to use the main Plug-ins folder of CS5. You will have massive problems if you do...
