New UXP Panels (Plugins)
Compatible with Adobe® Photoshop® CC2021 (v22.0) and later for Win & Mac OS, including M1 Apple computers.
If you are already a user of our old panels, find more information on the UXP panels and the upgrade here: https://retouchingacademylab.com/new-ra-uxp-panels/
Old Legacy Panels (Extensions)
Please note that the latest versions of Adobe Photoshop (22.3+) on Apple M1 computers (Apple Silicon) DO NOT SUPPORT regular extensions, and our panels cannot be installed.
However, our old (legacy) panels will work on M1 Macs if you are using a Photoshop version prior to 22.3 (there are no changes relevant to retouching in the latest versions).
Also, as an option, you can install Rosetta to enable the Intel-based Photoshop app to run on your M1 Apple computer and continue having access to the Legacy Extensions.
Find the instructions to roll back to an older version of Photoshop here.
