Using ON1 Effects 2019 as a Plug-In to Apple® Photos
ON1 Effects 2019 integrates tightly with Apple Photos (for Mac OS only) and provides a seamless experience for enhancing your images.
SETTING UP APPLE PHOTOS TO WORK WITH EFFECTS
If you have Apple Photos on your computer when you install ON1 Effects 2019, the appropriate plug-in will be installed, but you must first manually activate it in order to use it.
To do so, go to Apple’s System Preferences and click on the Extensions icon. In the Extensions pane, click on Photos Editing, then check the ON1 Effects 2019 box. This will let you send images from Apple Photos to Effects 2019. (File Sharing must also be turned on in System Preferences for this to work.)
After installing Effects 2019 on your Mac, you must turn the Photos extension on via Apple’s Extensions System Preference. (File Sharing, also accessed from System Preferences, must also be turned on for Apple Photos extensions to work.)
To edit an image in ON1 Effects 2019 follow these steps:
- Select the image you wish to edit in Photos.
- Click on the Edit button.
- On the top right side of the editing window, to the right of the Info button, you’ll see the Extensions icon, designated by a circle with three dots inside it. Click on that button, and choose ON1 Effects 2019 from the pop-up.
