I have been really, really enjoying my Photoshop classes. One of my instructors had recommended that I take a look at: Alien Skin’s Exposure 2. I downloaded and installed the 30 day trial so I could follow along with the training. I open up Photoshop. Went to the Filters menu. Nothing! Huh? If I was a betting man I would have guess it would have been there! I then went and looked at the manual. Sure enough it says the filter should be located under the filter menu in Photoshop!
After a few google searches I was told that my original hunch was correct about the filters menu. A few more searches revealed that someone could not get their plug-ins working under the 64bit version of Photoshop. Was I running the 64bit version?
I made sure Photoshop was closed and I went to the START menu and found the Photoshop App (32bit). I ran the program and went to filter menu. Sure enough the plug-ins were there.
Note – The reason why I said make sure that “Photoshop” was closed was If you had Photoshop 64bit open and clicked on the 32bit version, it would just bring the existing 64Bit Photoshop window to the foreground.
So if you find that some of your filters are not showing up in Photoshop make sure you are running the 32bit version before getting worried.
