My PsCC keeps locking up when I try to use anyone of my NIK software programs...

Is this happening to anyone else?

I知 pleased I知 still using Aperture... this sounds like an unpleasant development.

I just installed CC v20 on my main machine and it crashes as soon as it opens, before I even try to do anything. On the plus side, by default it does NOT uninstall v19.1x and THAT is still working fine, Nik and all. Go to your Creative Cloud portal and ask it to show "all installed" and you should find v19.1x still there.

I'm still using CS5 but I've been considering upgrading. If they don't fix this for the latest version I'll have to reconsider because I can't live without NIK.

2 days ago I was using my NIK software for an entry and today when I moved my picture into PsCC (where I use my NIK) I opened up Venzia, did my alterations pressed OK and it froze up my whole PsCC program...couldn't/wouldn't do anything...I had to do a hard re-boot (shut it down)...tried again...same thing...tried doing a few other editing using only PsCC (no editing software) then went back to Color Efex and it did the same thing...(locked up)

I'm assuming that y'all are running the latest version of Nik (The latest DXO version, 5.0.0.0 64x (v1.2.14))? If so, I'm confident that they will address compatibility issues. One thing to try: remove and re-install the Nik software.

Can you install//run it as a standalone, or only as a plug-in?

I still have older version and I am running against PS CC 2019 and all works well. I dont see any issue. Oh and one more thing I am using Macbook Pro 2015 model.

Until tonight I was running the old free version from Google

I'm using the free version that Google gave out a few years ago. Corel finally updated PaintShop Pro to support it. Working just fine.

Does it also not run in Lightroom as a plug-in?

Anyway, even one reason more to not go for Photoshop. Now find a good alternative for Lightroom (Luminar?) and I can get rid of the Adobe stuff.

hummm - Luminar looks interesting, I downloaded a trial version and do see some potential. The only challenge I would have is, over period of time all presents and PS actions that I have created I won't be able to use them and have to rebuild all those again with this.

One more thing I noticed full resolution JPG if I do post processing with Luminar and export that to JPG again, the size of file doubles which is equivalent to a CR2 file size with no dual pixel on in 5d M4.

I received a copy of Corel Aftershot with my last upgrade to PaintShop Pro X8. It supports organizing by folders, which I like because it will work with my existing filing system and it will handle both my Canon and Olympus RAW files. However, I haven't taken the time yet to learn it.

Any update on this situation?

Everything I've read indicates that the (old) free Google version of the Nik plug-ins is not compatible with the latest version of Ps. The DXO version should be compatible, or at least if there are bugs, I'd expect they will be sorted out pretty quickly.

Presently I知 using the trial version of DxO...I致e been using the free versions with the Ps updates...I don稚 know what changed but it did..

I doubt I can go back to the free version ...sigh

That's going to add quite a lot to the cost of upgrading from CS5 to CC. I can't help wondering whether it's worth it.

I try to never "upgrade" unless there is some new compelling feature I REALLY NEED to use or my equipment breaks down. It's been a while ... :-)

Thanks. I've certainly read about some interesting features and it would be a big help having a version of ACR that was compatible with my 80D's RAW files. I just hate the fact that if I ever wanted to stop paying I'd have no PS to use.
