Hello, i'm driving nuts here!

I updated my Macbook pro 16'' this morning from Sierra to High-Sierra and now when i'm click a self made action in Photoshop CS6 with any preset of Nik software in it (Color efex, Analog, Silver efex or other related) Photoshop crashes. Hope someone can help me out here because I need to it for business.

Thanks

You may need to reach out to the publishers of Nik software and verify if their software is compatible with High Sierra.  A lot changed under the hood with this release of macOS.

Problem solved in a hard way. Total format and back to Seirre. It was the only way because Nik is still 32 bit and the new High Sierra is only exepting 64 bit.

Are you still having trouble with this? The feedback I have been getting on that trouble shooting guide hasn't been overly positive. Another user suggested the following workaround:

"My experience is that if I apply the crop tool first and then NIK filters with a smart filter PS does not crash.  Applying NIK first to a smart object and then cropping always crashes."
