Denoise AI installation does not install Lightroom plugin-extras; how to manually install?

denoise ai version 3.7.2
LR classic 12.5

I want to use the plugin-extras integration because it supports RAW, but it’s not auto-installed. The edit-in integration was auto-installed properly. But the plugin-extras menu doesn’t even have any of the TopazLabs plugins installed.

How do I manually install the plugin-extras integration? I’ve already tried re-installing from the menu and re-installing denoise AI but neither path works. Log files also don’t show any mention of errors when installing plugins.

do you have the solution? I have the same problem


There are lots of us with the same problem, creating a ticket after hours and hours of messing around, like many others have is not what I should have to do. Ive lots of paid work waiting to be edited but need this Plugin to work so am stuck. Should have bought Luminare Neo.

Seems like this may be some attempt to push folks to the new product. I can’t see any other reason not to include the plugin anymore. Breaking functionality is a good way to get us to recommend other products. First they break VideoAI with a new version and now they are going after DeNoise AI?

I can tell you what feedback I will give folks on all the new Topaz product videos. Don’t rely on Topaz Products. I will point at this thread. Spread the word to help others become aware when a vendor does not support the product.

Link to this post, in case they take down the link button. Denoise AI installation does not install Lightroom plugin-extras; how to manually install?

Same problem here and I am getting fed up with this, and with Topaz in general. Way to go, make a full time pro user into a NON-fan. This constant guessing which plugins will work; and now the disastrous new UI in AI Photo… I am this close to pulling the plug. I am running a business, not a troubleshooting service. Oh yeah and the constant “re-validate”, making ke scramble to fins user IDs/emails and passwords… not impressed.
