PS CS 4 my extract filter keeps disappearing - help?

May 30, 2010 8:45 AM

I'm using Photoshop CS 4 for OS X, and a fortnight ago I d/l the goodies that contained the extract filter, and although the extract filter stayed in place (in my filters) for a time (a short time), after which it has now disappeared. I don't want to have to keep going back to my desktop, choosing "goodies, etc" and replacing the extract filter - now the correct d/l file that I have on my desktop is grayed out - it's PHSPCS4...t_ls1.dmg - so I was only able to select it in Photoshop > Preferences > Plug Ins only 1 time and no longer after that one time (in order to replace it after it has disappeared from my Filters.)

 

And when I finally do get that extract back (which I need help with in getting it back as I've been unable to do - see above), how do I make it stay put in my filters for as long as I have my photoshop installed on my computer?

 

Thanks in advance.

    What are you doing with the dmg-File?

    Are you sure you’ve followed the install-instructions correctly?

    Once again: What are you doing with the dmg-File?

    You are not supposed to link to a dmg! http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Apple_Disk_Image

    What Christoph is trying to tell you is that you actually need to mount that disk image by double clicking on the icon of the dmg file.  The contents of the disk image is what you need to install, not the dmg file itself.

    Have you tried copying it into Plug-ins – Filters in Photoshop’s Folder?

    After double-clicking the dmg a virtual disc should appear; from that 

    try dragging the plug-in into Applications/Adobe Photoshop CS4/Plug-

    ins/Filters (if you can’t locate the folder press the icon in the Dock 

    and select »Show in Finder«).

    Because, as far as I can tell, you had simply not placed the plug-in where it belonged.

    And using as the Additional Plug-ins folder a folder on a disc image that would disappear on restarting the computer would throw the application.

    I roughly meant it in the sense of »confuse«; if the programm tries to 

    access a volume that is not actually available that is naturally 

    inconvenient.
