How To Install Your Topaz Labs Program Into Photoshop Elements
Multiple Topaz Labs programs can be used as plugins in Adobe Photoshop Elements. These include DeNoise AI, Sharpen AI, Adjust AI, and Studio 2. Other programs, such as Gigapixel AI and Jpeg to Raw, do not function as plugins in Photoshop Elements.
Please Note: Adobe Photoshop Elements and Adobe Photoshop are not the same program. Photoshop Elements is a separate, reduced-feature version of Adobe's flagship Photoshop program.
Accessing Your Photoshop Elements Plugins
Once installed, your plugins will appear in PS Elements under the Filter menu, so long as an editable image is loaded
How To Install On Windows
If you open an image in PS Elements and do not see your plugins automatically showing under the Filter menu, you'll want to add them manually.
1) Go to the Edit menu and select Preferences, and then Plug-Ins.
2) Check the Additional Plugins Folder checkbox. When you do, it should automatically pop up the Browse box, but you may have to click the Choose button.
3) The default filepath for all current Topaz Labs compatible apps is C:\Program Files\Topaz Labs LLC and this is the folder you want to stop at. Once you select the folder, it should show you the programs inside, but do not click them. Use Topaz Labs LLC. Photoshop Elements will be able to find all of your additional plugins within the program folders automatically.
4) Click "Ok"
You should now see C:\Program Files\Topaz Labs LLC as the Additional Plug-Ins Folder.
How To Install On Mac
Open the main Elements menu and select Preferences and then Plug-Ins.
Check the "Additional Plug-Ins Folder" box. Then select "Choose" and navigate to the individual application you want to add (such as changing from Sharpen AI to DeNoise AI in the example above) or simply go to Applications/Topaz Labs LLC if you've installed everything in the default location.
Then click "Ok."
