Adobe CC 2014 and onOne Software

Posted on June 18, 2014

panelUPDATE 6.26.14: We’ve released an update to Perfect Photo Suite 8.5 Premium to fix the onOne panel.

Today, Adobe announced what’s new in Creative Cloud. We also see there is another update to Photoshop CC, which may impact the onOne Software plug-ins. Specifically, how the plug-ins are accessed within Photoshop. Since Photoshop CC 2014 is a new version, you will need to run the onOne installer again to find this new version of Photoshop.

onOne Software can be accessed (within Photoshop) in two ways. First, using the onOne panel in Photoshop (opened by going to Window > Extensions > onOne). This method will potentially break if you update to Photoshop CC 2014.

Until we release an update to address the issue, you can still access your onOne Software plug-ins through the File > Automate menu.

This is the only potential issue we see at this time, but will be working hard to make sure any issues are addressed in a future update if required. If you have any questions regarding your onOne plug-ins and the new release of Adobe CC, please contact us.
