Photoshop: How do I remove a 3rd party plugin from the Filter menu?

Hello all,

I recently uninstalled the Portrait Professional plugin from my PC. Photoshop is still showing that the plugin is installed, but of course it doesn't work when I click on it. I can't find any reference to it in the plugins folder, so I don't have any idea how to remove it. Any advice?

Photoshop will only show that the plugin is installed if the plugin really is installed somewhere in the Plug-Ins folder (the plugins installed are checked at launch time). Go to the Plug-Ins folder and see what remains of that plugin.

Try this: reinstall the Exposure X3 Bundle or X4 Bundle, and then uninstall from the Applications/Alien Skin folder. Tht worked for me.

What version of Portrait Pro? Did you check both the version specific folder and a the shared location? https://helpx.adobe.com/photoshop/kb/plug-ins-photoshop-troubleshooting.html

If you're still having trouble, you can contact Portrait Pro directly for help: Portrait Pro
