Nik Collection By DxO 5.0.0
I had the same problem, but it seems the issue was with upgrade going wrong. Just like you did, I uninstalled 5.0.1 and then installed 5.0.1 again (not 5.0.0) - and plug-ins in Affinity started working!
Nik Collection by DxO 5.0.0
It is the complete collection of plugins from the Nik Collection by DxO companies. It uses proprietary U Point, which allows you to subtly adjust the photograph's brightness, contrast, color saturation, and other parameters of individual objects.
Hi @WeddingPhotoz I'm not having any trouble with the Nik filters. What do you mean exactly by it will not launch or start? Are you seeing the collection under Filter menu with no images open? Is the Google folder in the right directory on your C-drive? Look in: C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Photoshop 2021\Plug-ins\Google. If all that is correct, what type of image are you trying to apply the filters to? Did you check the Image Mode? Nik won't work with CMYK images. Let us know!
I just installed photoshop 2023 and put NIK collection in the plug in folder after copying from my previous version. All this is fine except when you try to use NIK filters, you get a message from DxO asking you to take a 15 day trial or buy it! Anyone have experienced that?
I have the old "original Nik" collection (maybe 10 years old) but updated over the years. Can't determine if you upgraded your actual computer or if you mean you "installed the latest updates." In any event, if have a new computer then you'll have to add the Nik folder to the Photoshop 2022 Foder. If it's an existing computer, you will need to check if the Nik folder is in the Photoshop 2022 folder, then you should be good to go. Either way (new or existing computer), you need to make sure the Nik is associated with the Photoshop 2022 folder. You will see "Nik" at bottom of the "Filter" dropdown as "Jain" wrote below. Good luck!
I contacted DxO and they sent me link to the 5.0.2 version, which I installed. That version did not appear in my PS either but the good news is at least I was able to uninstall this version so I could reinstall v. 5.0.0, and now I'm back to normal but have to live with the annoying upgrade message every timeI open Nik. I told DxO I think they have some work to do on versions beyond 5.0.0. Okay, three days later I can go back to processing those 4 images
The Nik Collection has been around for a long time. Originally developed by Nik Software, it was later sold to Google who developed it for a short time before retiring the product. It was then purchased from Google by DxO which has continued to develop and support the collection. Today there 8 plugins in the Nik Collection 5. These can be used as plugins to compatible host editors like Lightroom, PhotoLab, Photoshop and Affinity Photo. But you can also use the Nik Collection tools as stand-alone editors in their own right. 041b061a72
