I have just installed PS CC 2015 and am experiencing intermittent freezing, shutting down of PS when using Nik software plug in in Glamour Glow. Prior to this installation this situation did not exist. This is using a high powered iMac (latest Yosemite OS)

Contact Nik/Google for updates to their plugins, or disable their plugin until they can release an update to fix the plugin bugs.

Can you be sure it is not an Adobe issue? The latest Nik by Google suite was downloaded so it was recognised by PS CC 2015. Incidentally i have just notified Nik of the situation.

Pretty sure - they have a number of bugs that still need to be solved (we're trying to contact their engineers about those issues).

I've got the same issue. I'd be interested in hearing anything about it since it's frustrating. It's happened to me on Pro Contrast inside of Color Efex Pro. It has happened inside of Photoshop 2015, 2015.5, and now 2017. With the exception of 2017, I have made sure everything is up to date. Looks like I should probably report it to Google.

Since they have released it for free now, I'd be surprised if they were still supporting it. If they say they are, do report back here and let us all know.  We can celebrate.

FWIW, I occasionally have a Nik filter freeze, but for the most part, it  still works just fine. I simply try to make sure that I've saved my file before running 3rd party filters, any of them, since there appear to be none that are immune, though Nik filters are the ones most likely to freeze PS itself.
