Photoshop Elements Cannot Load Topaz Labs as a Plugin

If you are not seeing Topaz Labs products in Photoshop Elements, try these workaround steps.


In Photoshop Elements, check under Edit -> Preferences to see where your plugin folder is.


You can only have one plugin folder in Photoshop Elements.


To load all your Topaz programs as plugins you probably set your plugin folder to:

C:\Program Files\Topaz Labs


Your Topaz Labs products are now installed to:

C:\Program Files\Topaz Labs LLC


To remedy this situation:


1. Close Photoshop


2. CTRL + X to move your Topaz Labs products folders from


C:\Program Files\Topaz Labs LLC




C:\Program Files\Topaz Labs


3. Open Topaz Labs products so it can write to the registry it's new location.


4. Open Photoshop again and confirm that you can see it under Filters ->

Topaz Labs product
