She will...

This might be the solution to your problem...

The plug-in is installed...but not working propperly...

All he is saying that if you find 8bf(photoshop native plug-in format or a shortcut called fotofxlab or the actual .8bf file(fileformat).

If you only leave topaz labs shortcut in that specific folder. You'll recognize a shortcut by an arrow on the icon.


I am sorry that the Software Manager did not install the PS plugins correctly for you. The Software Manager will create a shortcut in PS's Plug-ins folder named "TopazLabs" which points to C:\Program Files (x86)\Topaz Labs\Applications\32(or 64)Bit\Topaz Plug-ins\. The 8bf file is hosted inside "Topaz Plug-ins" folder.

To fix the problem, go to PS's Plug-ins folder, delete any old shortcuts or actual 8bf files for photoFXlab, and only leave 'TopazLabs' shortcut there. Do not copy the actual .8bf file (for photoFXlab) into PS's Plug-ins folder.

If this still does not fix the problem, go to C:\Program Files (x86)\Topaz Labs\Applications\Installation folder, and delete the file LatestInstallation.txt and then run the Topaz Software Manager again.
Please let us know if this still does not fix the problem."
