Hi,

I installed the Nik silver efex demo plugin, and I can't seem to find it in photoshop at all. I know its supposed to be in the filters section. I installed it correctly according to the directions, and all the software is on the computer.. Photoshop just doesnt see it. :(

Go to "File--->Automate" and there you'll see another submenu: "Nik Selective Tool..."
Click on it and the Selective tool menu will show up. At the bottom of it, click on "Settings" (on little letters) and on the window that comes up, check the box that says something along the lines of having the Selective Tools show automatically when you launch Photoshop.

Hope it helps....

Mine also appears under the 'Filter' menu ok and I don't have the "show automatically when you launch Photoshop" selected (CS4 running on Vista Ultimate)

Sometimes you have to point Photoshop to load the folder than you put it in (plugins, maybe) by going to preferences

Mine automatically appeared in the filters menu. Maybe you can move it there.

Sometimes the plug-in installs into a filter subfolder under plug-ins. So unless you know the exact filter set to look in, you won't find it. If you go into your filter folder and check the subfolders, you should find it. You can then cut and paste the plug-in directly into the filter folder but not within a subfolder. On your next Photoshop restart, you should see Nik listed under your filter menu.

Thanks for your help everyone, but unfortunately PSD still can't seem to locate it. I have tried to install it in every folder mentioned, and even moved it to "actions" in a desperate attempt, but to no avail. I'll just uninstall it and try again later. :(

I mentioned this before, but have you tried going to

Preferences > Plug-Ins > check the box for "Additional plug-ins folder"? You can designate a folder somewhere and put all your non-native plug-ins in there.
