When I start to process a raw file (PEF) and wish to use a filter plugin during the editing process, Photo greys out the plugins that are in the filter preferences list and are thus unavailable.  If I happen to start post processing from a .jpg image, all the plugins work perfectly.  What am I missing?   This behavior has occurred in all previous versions, but I simply exported the raw image as a jpg and then reopened the file and was able to use the plugin and complete the post work.  Any hints would be appreciated.  Thanks

Hi Iam1of2,
Most plugins only work with RGB 8/16bit images. Check if you are working with a 32 bit image, if so convert it to 8/16bit (Document > Convert Format /ICC Profile...) and the plugins will become available.

I think that my camera is set up to record images in sRGB format and 14 or 16 bit depth.  In the case above, I got a bit peeved after experiencing this problem continuously for a long time and finally decided someone would understand what was happening.  The exercise today was the result of loading 3 images in HDR merge, and Photo apparently made the conversion to 32bit.  However, I will have to look further into the PEF file format as this seems to happen with single images as well.  Anyway, my gratitude is extended to you because you hit the nail on the head. - Thank you so much.
