How to remove digimarc plugin in cs6?

May 13, 2013 7:42 AM

I would like to remove the digimarc filter, and can't find any of the standard plugins that come with the installation? Why not?

    Why do you want to remove it?

     

    Do you realize that if you corrupt the installation by fooling with the files (e.g., deleting or renaming) that the updater most likely won't work right when the next update is released, because it will think the installation is incomplete or corrupted?

    A plugin folder still exists and an additional one has been added. You can also search for the plugin and find it in required but you don't even know it t will slow anything down.

    It makes no measurable difference in time to open a file whether that plug-in is active or not.

     

    But Howard, if you insist on making that change, just remember to check back here when you get your next update that fails to install with a cryptic error message.  We'll be happy to remind you again that removing or renaming files that are part of the Photoshop installation package is a bad idea.

    Feel free to experiment with temporarily renaming the plug-in files (put a ~ in front of the name to have them be skipped during enumeration).

     

    I tried just that and I found no difference in speed - none.

     

    What OS are you running?  What are your scratch drive assignments?

     

    For what it's worth with Windows 7 x64 I found Photoshop CS6 file operations slightly faster than Photoshop CS5, but every system is different.
