We took the AKVIS Noise Buster (Win) and AKVIS Coloriage (Mac) installation as an example.
Other AKVIS programs are installed in the same manner.
Attention! You must have administrator rights to install the program on your computer.
Before installing the AKVIS Plugin, please make sure that the photo editor where you want to install the plugin, is closed.
Follow the instructions to install AKVIS Noise Buster in Windows.
Activate the check box "I accept the terms in the license agreement", and press Next.
Or you can copy the 8bf file into the Plug-ins folder of your image editor.
To install the Standalone version, make sure that the check-box Standalone is activated.
To create a shortcut for the program on desktop, activate the component Shortcut on Desktop.
Press the button Next.
You can subscribe to the AKVIS Newsletter to be informed about updates and events.
After installation of the standalone version of Noise Buster, you will see a new line in the Start menu: AKVIS - Noise Buster and a shortcut on desktop, if during installation the component Shortcut on Desktop was enabled.
After installation of the Noise Buster plugin you will see a new item in the Filter/Effects menu of your photo editor. For example in Photoshop: Filter -> AKVIS –> Noise Buster. Please use this command to launch the plugin in the editor.
Note: You can launch almost all AKVIS plugins from the menu Filter, except AKVIS Magnifier.
To call the Magnifier plugin in Photoshop please use the command File -> Automate -> AKVIS Magnifier, in Photoshop Elements: File -> Automation Tools -> AKVIS Magnifier. The plugin does not work with other image editors. Unlike other AKVIS plugins, to make the Magnifier plugin work you must have two files in the Plug-Ins folder: 8li and 8bf.
If the plugin does not appear in the Filter, copy the .8bf (or _64.8bf for 64-bit version) file from the AKVIS folder (C:\Program Files\AKVIS\Noise Buster\Noise Buster.8bf) into the Plugins folder of your image editor.
Consult the tips on how to install plug-ins into Photoshop, or into Paint Shop Pro Photo, or PhotoImpact. Read how to work with our plugins in GIMP or Xara Xtreme. If you still have problems, please write to our support team.
