Installing a extension panel is just a matter of copying a folder to the right location. The videos and instructions below will show you how to do that. Additionally, if you have an older version of Photoshop, you may need to install the Adobe "multi-plugin". If you have any issues not addressed below, please see the troubleshooting page for more assistance.
Once installed, please see the Lumenzia support page for the included tutorials and other support. You can get to that page at any time simply by clicking the "Tutorials" button in Lumenzia.
For a history of changes in Lumenzia, please see the Lumenzia release notes (version history).
If you wish to uninstall Lumenzia , the free panel, or any other panel, please see the un-install page. Note that this is generally not needed when upgrading to newer versions of the panel.
If you are using Apple Silicon (M1), CEP panels must be run under Rosetta. UXP versions of my panels are planned once UXP is mature enough to support the advanced requirements of Lumenzia (see here for more info on UXP).
Installation via JSXBIN script:
To install the panel:
If you have any problems, please see the troubleshooting page and then try again.
Installing on OSX:
Installing on Windows:
Instead of the ZXP installation, you can simply install via the ZXP file included in the ASSETS/lumenzia/ZXP-ExtensionManager and ASSETS/lumenziabasics/ZXP-ExtensionManager folders. This requires you to install another program to help install and uninstall the ZXP files, but once installed is pretty simple and can help avoid a few edge-cases where installation is more complicated. You may use Adobe's Extension Manager CS6 (for CS6 users only), or Anastasiy’s Extension Manager (for Photoshop CS6 or CC).
Note: These options are mentioned for your convenience. You are responsible for your use of 3rd party tools. I am unable to support 3rd party tools.
The JSXBIN script above should work for nearly all users. However, if you encounter any issues, you may alternatively install the panel manually. Installing an extension panel is simply a matter of copying the com.______.ext folder to othe right location for your version of Photoshop. This process is shown towards the end of the videos above.
The easiest way to find the target folder is by choosing clicking "show panel folder" in the JSXBIN installer (as shown at the end of the install videos). Or navigate to the folder for your version of Photoshop:
OSX (Open Go/Go To Folder in Finder and you can paste in these destinations):
Windows: (note that these are hidden folders on Windows, so best to copy and paste the destination into the top of the file browser)
