I have Lightroom 4
Mac Computer

Photoshop Elements 8

I have not used Elements for a while and today when transferring from Lightroom to Elements for editing Elements crashed 3 times after I indicated edit in Photoshop elements.

Besides Photoshop Elements, I have all Nik software and Topaz products as external editing options and they work perfectly with no issues when transferring from Lightroom.

I have attached a screen shot of the crash report

Disable or update Nik to get that bug fixed.

A Question is there a reason why I need to disable Nik software when transferring to Photoshop Elements.

Crashing of Elements to my mind has nothing to do with Nik Software in this case.

The crash is happening prior to accessing Nik in Photoshop Elements . It happens immediately after I click edit in Photoshop Elements via Lightroom

thank you

Just because some bug in the Nik plugins is causing you to crash.

The crash report clearly says that the Nik plugins are causing the crash.

If you want to stop crashing, disable or update the buggy Nik plugins.

Thank you Chris . I have downloaded updates for the Nik Software. I received a free upgrade from google see screen shots.

When opening Photoshop Elements - only Nik Define is within the Plug-in folder ready for editing.

Please advise what do I do to move the plug-ins to Photoshop Plug-in folder for the Photoshop Elements to recognize the plugs for editing.

thank you

You have 2 copies of the Nik Selective Tool in your plugins folder, and in Elements.

For other installation problems with Nik's plugin, talk to Nik.

Hi Chris

I have contacted Nik and they said Photoshop Elements 8 is not compatible with Nik Products.

Do you have any ideas when Photoshop Elements 12 will be coming onto the market

Historically, Elements has shipped a new version around the same time each year.
