Why can't I access ReMask 5 in Photoshop?

To access ReMask 5 in the Filter menu, you will first need to run ReMask 5 as a standalone editor (Mac only). After that, restart Photoshop and ReMask 5 should then appear in your Filter menu. Should that fail to work, please do the following to resolve the issue: 

Mac:

  1. Open two Finder Tabs
  2. In the first tab, go to Applications folder and right click on the ReMask 5 icon. 
  3. Click on Show Package Contents → Contents → Resources
  4. We need to copy the Topaz_remask5.plugin & TopazRemask5Automate.plugin files
    1. You can copy both at the same time by holding the Command key and clicking both, then right-clicking and selecting 'Copy 2 Items'
  5. Select the second Finder tab
  6. Select the 'Go' menu at the top of the screen, then click "Go to Folder"
  7. Enter: /Library/Application Support/Adobe/Plug-Ins/CC
  8. Paste the two files into the "CC" folder
  9. Restart Photoshop and ReMask 5 should show up in the Filter menu. 

 

Windows: 

  1. Go to installed location of Topaz ReMask 5, which is by default at C:\Program Files\Topaz Labs\Topaz ReMask 5.
  2. There are two folders, PS_Plugins and PS_Plugins_x64, containing the 32-bit and 64-bit plugin files (the .8bf file & .8li file) respectively.
  3. For 64-bit Photoshop host programs, copy the plugin files (.8bf & .8li):
    • C:\Program Files\Topaz Labs\Topaz ReMask 5\PS_Plugins_x64\tlremask5ps_x64.8bf
    • C:\Program Files\Topaz Labs\Topaz ReMask 5\PS_Plugins_x64\TopazReMaskAutomation.8li
  4. Paste the shortcut files into the 64-bit Photoshop host's Plug-Ins folder.
  5. For 32-bit Photoshop host programs, copy the plugin files (.8bf & .8li):
    • C:\Program Files\Topaz Labs\Topaz ReMask 5\PS_Plugins\tlremask5ps.8bf
    • C:\Program Files\Topaz Labs\Topaz ReMask 5\PS_Plugins\TopazReMaskAutomation.8li
  6. Paste it in the 32-bit Photoshop's Plug-ins folder.
  7. Restart Photoshop and ReMask 5 should show up in the Filter menu.
