First, please check that

  • Photoshop was restarted after the plugin was installed? This is required to finish the installation process.
  • That you're looking in WINDOW > EXTENSIONS (Legacy) and not in the "plugins" menu
  • Macs Running the M1 chip – You must open Photoshop in Rosetta Mode – click here for more information
  • Please check that in PREFERENCES > PLUGINS that "Legacy Extensions" is switched on:

Please do the following:

Uninstall the Image-FX plugin:

  • Open Anastasiy Extension Manager

  • Click the "remove" button at the top.

Next, download and install: www.zxpinstaller.com

Use this app to install the Image-FX plugin and then reopen Photoshop – it's a drag and drop installer, so all you need to do is drag the Image-FX.zxp file onto the installer software for it to install – If Photoshop was already open, quit and restart it.
