help! plugins not installing

Postby emg1000 » Mon Aug 13, 2007 7:13 am


Ive tried to add some basic plug ins - knoll, eye candy 4000 etc - dropped them in the plug ins folder per usual, but whenever I fire up photoshop I get the error message:

"One or more plug-ins are currently not available on your system. For details see Help > System Info."

When I go to system info, Photoshop crashes? I tried putting the plugins in a different folder and then directing photoshop to that folder (via the prefences menu) but got the same error messages.

anyone know any sort of solution?

I'm running CS3 on an intel mac with plenty of ram and space. outside of this error, photoshop runs just fine.

thanks for any help you can provide!!

EyeCandy 4000 is PowerPC software, so in order to use in Photoshop CS3 on an Intel Max, you need to run Photoshop CS3 in Rosetta mode. To do that please select the Photoshop icon, select File > Get Info and activate the Rosetta check box. Now if you run Photoshop CS3, EyeCandy 4000 will show up again.

Running Photoshop CS3 in Rosetta mode means that Photoshop will run a bit slower, but it is usually not noticable unless you use very large files with a lot of layers.
