  1. In your app folder, create a folder and name it nik_plugin_dxo.

    look at your 3rd image “compatible host app”

    - click the “+”down left and go select that folder I asked you to create in the app folder. When you done the installation that’s where the plugins are going to be installed.


    now, to add them to AP.

    open the preference panel and to to the plugin section, that’s where you’ll add them

    * you'll find the info here:

    Thanks. On the mac there doesn't seem to be an alt key and there's no left mouse button. I have fn, control, option and command with a magic mouse (no buttons). Typically I use control or option to activate a left click type function but none of those seem to work when I'm using the brush tool. I hope that helps. Looking forward to finding an answer. 

    Go in your setting / mouse / and enable right click with your mouse.

    Thank you, firstdefence. 

    When I do that, the adjustment only affects the pixel layer underneath.  Obviously, that would usually be what you'd want but I would like to be able to increase the contrast in the actual mask itself.  When I click alt + the mask to reveal the b&w image, I can't seem to make any adjustments to it.  Is there a way you can do that?

    when you create that selection its from the pixel layer below, yes and its normal. Once you have you selection with marching ants, add a curve or a brightness/contrast if you want and it will be in a mask, the deselect the selection and do what you want to adjust and add more if you want.


    here’s a quick tutorial how to create luminosity mask


  4. Kind of yes for answer, AP is not a DAM and you have some few options to help with culling your images. 

    With some search on this forum you can come to fastrawviewer or camera bits or you can even use bridge from adobe to be way faster than opening them all one by one in AP, there is also other program too! They go from free to expensive, yours to choose what fit your workflow.
