If’ you’re an Adobe Creative Cloud subscriber then I’m sure you’ll be aware that yesterday saw some BIG announcements and releases yesterday with over 1000 updates.
Obviously the ones I, and I’m guessing yourselves if you’re reading this blog, have the most interest in are those that were added / enhanced in the likes of Adobe Photoshop CC … which is now known as Adobe Photoshop CC (2014)
Anyway the purpose of this post isn’t to go through all of the updates as there’s lots of places you can do that already: Adobe.com [Link] and Terry White’s Tech Blog [Link] to name a couple. The purpose of this post however is just to briefly mention about plug ins…WHERE ARE MY PLUG INS?
Ok so if you were using plug ins with Photoshop CC before you updated you may find now that you have done so you can no longer see them and in fact if you navigate to where the plug ins are stored within the file structure you’ll not see them there either HOWEVER there is a simple fix without having to re-install them…
- STEP 1: Navigate to the Photoshop CC folder in APPLICATIONS
- STEP 2: Double Click to Open the PLUG-INS Folder to reveal all those installed and simply highlight them all and EDIT – COPY (Right Click + Copy)
- STEP 3: Navigate to the Photoshop CC 2014 folder in APPLICATIONS
- STEP 4: Double Click to Open the PLUG-INS Folder and then EDIT – PASTE (Right Click + Paste)
- STEP 5: Close and Re-Open Photoshop CC 2014

So there you go just a quick Public Service Announcement to hopefully address any issues you may have with locating / installing plug ins since the update.
NOTE: I work on a Mac and The Plug Ins I have installed and use regularly at the moment are the Nik Collection by Google and the entire Topaz suite of Plug Ins and going through the process above has worked without any issues; I can’t however speak for other 3rd Party Plug Ins but if you do find that they have no issues they feel free to share which ones in the comments section below.
If however there are any issues you can still use Photoshop 14.2 as CC 2014 is a new install. Having the 2 versions at the moment I think is a good thing as before there have been times when new updates / installs have caused temporary clashes with plug ins; this way we have the best of both worlds.
