I downloaded the optional HSB/HSL filter into the Photoshop CC plugins folder per the instructions. However, when I open Photoshop CC, the filter is not available in Other Filters in the Filters menu which is where it's supposed to be. With Photoshop CC closed, I can double-click on the "Optional Multiplugin.8BF" file (that has the HSB/HSL filter). That causes Photoshop CC to open and puts the HSB/HSL filter in Other Folders in the Filters menu. However, if I close Photoshop CC then reopen it, the filter is gone. Yesterday I updated Photoshop CC to verson 14.2.1 but that did not fix the problem.
Here is where the file is located on my computer:
Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Photoshop CC (64 bit)\Plug-ins\Optional Plug-ins Win64\Optional Multiplugin.8BF
Is there some way to load the "Optional Multiplugin.8BF" file so that it stays permanently loaded in Photoshop CC?
Sounds like "when you close Photoshop and reopen it" that you're opening the 32 bit variant. Make sure you open the 64 bit Photoshop and the plug-in should be there.
Yes, it turns out you're exactly right. I didn't realize I had a 32 bit version of Photoshop CC. My shortcut in my start menu was pointing to the 32 bit version. I re-pointed it to the 64 bit Photoshop CC and now the filter is where I expect it to be. Thanks for your help.
