I’m reluctant to upgrade anything with NIK not getting any attention from developers anymore.

Curious to hear what happens with all the updates coming around atm

Ok I found a fix that works for me, hopefully I might save some one else some time....firstly I tried uninstalling and reinstalling...honestly don't know if that will make a difference....

The fix i found.....You have to open each Nik product and go into settings > after clicking ok > and change to apply the filtered effect to the current layer...

= no more problems :)

That works if you are willing to make destructive edits. Unfortunately, the Nik plugins still crash most of the time under OSX High Sierra when working on a Smart Object.

Nik is now owned by DXO so there should be development soon.
That's great news! I guess we will probably have to go back to paying for Silver Efex and Color Efex, but I can live with that. I paid for them before Google bought Nik.

On the other hand these products compete with DxO's own software... especially Filmpack. Of course there is a lot more to the Nik collection than film simulation, but it makes me wonder if they will be merging Nik with their own products... or just re-branding them. Ah... here we go:

I have been trying to deal with this for a few months now and hopefully DXO will fix it. I ended up trading in my laptop MacBook Air for an older MacBook pro with OS Sierra and I'm fine now but my iMac is what I preferred to use.. Apple doesn't seem to give a Damn about our problem. Not only that but Apple seems to be pushing us into High Sierra really hard. I get daily prompts to upgrade

I havent tried this myself yet, but I saw this thread on reddit a few days ago . https://productforums.google.com/fo...Eg25CAM4IE;context-place=forum/nik-collection it seems some people have had success by running CEP4 not through the Photoshop menu, but through the "selective tools" panel of SEP4.
[doublepost=1520501065][/doublepost]I had to back date my iMac system from High Sierra back to Sierra to get NIK to work again with out crashing PS Found a a local tech who could do it but I had to erase all Time Machine back ups and start them over. What an ordeal but worth it. I hope DXO comes out with a better version as promised
