ERLAUTERUNG:Nik collection handbucher
If you are a user of one of the popular Nik Collection photo editing plugins, you have probably experienced errors in using the software recently. Luckily, there is a very simple workaround. It has been an up and down year for Nik Collection. After Google announced that they had no further plans for the software, they were later acquired by DxO. However, DxO has no known plans to make any changes to the current version of the software until their release of the newest edition sometime next year.
This leaves users with the problem of the plugins not being compatible with the updated version of Photoshop, with no hope for a fix to resolve the issue. A simple setting adjustment though will allow you to work around the problem. First, you will want to open a photo in Photoshop, and from there open the photo using your Nik software of choice.
When the photo opens in Nik, you will see a settings box in the bottom left corner of the screen. This setting is the root of the error. Photoshop will often crash when Nik Collection tries to create a new layer in the software.
This workaround allows you to save the changes to the layer you were currently working on, rather than create a new layer. The only addition I will add is that you should create a copy of the layer in Photoshop before you open in Nik, in case any further adjustments such as masking are required after the effects are applied. Nik Collection is an excellent software despite its recent issues. Levi Keplar is a wedding and portrait photographer and educator.

For real I thought it was game over with Nik until you showed me this trick. Many thanks for the help; but in my version of Nik, in setting I have not this option.
I only see TIFF compression and the class of saved TIFF files stripes or mosaic. Is a mistake in the spanish version? Ricardo, that's odd. The only thing I can think of is to first, make sure you are opening the photo in photoshop first, and then open the photo in Nik from Photoshop. If that doesn't allow the setting to show up, perhaps try updating the Nik software first to the current version.
Hope that helps! That is right with your instructions. Many thanks. It's a relief to be able to continue using Nik until its new version. Good weekend. You're a legend! This issue had been frustrating me to no end over the last month or so. Thank you! Can't wait for DXO to provide some sort of fix for this issue.
I tried to get my computer back to Sierra 4 times already NIK doesnt crash every time I use it thank God My workaround is saving whatever I have done before I use NIK in case it crashes I can just try to use it again with my saved file. Thank you for the article. Can't wait to get a legit fix. I found a workaround for High Sierra and Nik. Don't access Nik from the Photoshop Filters menu. Instead, access Nik from the Nik Selective Tool box that opens with Photoshop.
HI Donna, That is how I access NIK. So does your NIK never crash on you with High Sierra? I did go back to PS and it seems like it crashes less. Which PS are you using? Oh ok Yes, that very well may be. The last PS works better than the newest one for me so maybe the older PS you use with High Sierra the less likely NIK will crash? Thank you for the info. Can you successfully go back in and update the settings for a Nik smart filter?
For me the crash happens when I try to update the existing filters, not add new ones. This works! Over the years I bought the Nik Collection twice before and after Google gobbled it. I was disappointed when Google made it a free, not because I had paid for it twicebut because I knew it meant the end of support and future development. I thought Nik was toast. Thank you Mr. Unfortunately this doesn't resolve my issues when working with Nik Color Efex Pro on a Smart Object.
I do this in order to apply the effect in a non destructive way, and to allow masking the effect only into specific areas of the image. If I turn the effect off with the eye icon at the left of the item nested beneath the Smart Object layer then turn it back on it crashes Photoshop every time also discarding all other changes since I last saved.
Hopefully some resolution comes when DXO puts out the new release this year although that doesn't help right now. Can I say I love you!! Thank you so much! I stopped using Nik because of the problems I really missed using efex Pro and Nik Silver!! Thanks again!! I have been using the original NIK plugins for several years, and haven't had a single issue with PS6 5 and 6, and PS Elements running under Mac OSX Then I decided to buy the DXO update version of NIK, and now I can only use PhotoEfex because everything else crashes PSEand also CS6 please notice that I don't use the online CC Adobe software, just a standalone version of CS6 and PSE in two different Macs.
Anyway, the reason why the "Easy Fix" talked above cannot work for me is because the soonest I do one of the following, CS6 and PSE crash:. So now I may not have any options but to remove the DXO NIK plugins and replace them with the older NIK Software. I finally got the DXO Nik Software package to work along CS6 on one of my Macs. Please notice that I don't use the Adobe CC software online, but a standalone CS6 application on an iMac.
However, I do use the CC Bridge and Photo Downloader. What I did to solve the problem was to search for and delete all the Nik folders, files, etc. But I didn't delete any of the photos that had been edited with the Nik software. I ran the Nik deinstaller app to remove anything else that was left behind, but this app set a flag indicating that the Nik software had been completely removed. Then I reinstalled the Nik software with the Nik installer.
Launched CS6 and bridge CCand opened a photo. At this point the Nik Tool Selector appeared on the screen. I accessed the settings at the bottom of the Nik selector? I did the same with every one of the plugins shown on the Nik selector. I also check-marked not to have this selector launching every time that I use CS6, but only because I prefer to access the Nik plugins on the Filters folder.
Now I launched everyone of the Nik plugins shown in the CS6 Filters folder, and made sure that the settings were the same not use of the GPU, and applying the layer to the current photo. But I could not solve the crashing problem with PSE my 13" MacBook Pro. Maybe some Nik setting or file is left behind somewhere, or maybe the following? The Nik plugins aren't automatically installed in the PSE Filters folder.
Maybe they are placed in a the Plugins folder, but not made active during the installation process. In this case one has to "Choose" the Nik plugins in the PSE Plugins screen using the Preferences. Once that is done, PSE will launch the plugins and the Nik selector. However, PSE crashes immediately after I "click" on the Settings option at the bottom of the Nik selector. The same happens when I try to use any of the plugins in the Plugins folder.
It is very possible that having PSE launch the plugins to make them active conflicts with the installation process, but I don't really know. Upon DXO request, I emailed the diagnostics file to their technicians about a month or more ago, but I haven't received an answer. The diagnostics file contains the details of what causes PSE to crash. The DXO Nick Software Package crashing CS6 continues. The fix I mentioned above was temporary.
Another temporary fix that works well is as follows:. I launch both the standalone CS6 application, and CC Bridge b. In both apps' Preferences I purge the cache blocks look for and purge all the cachethen quit both applications d. I launch both apps again, and use the Nik plugins until they crash CS6 again.
