In June of 2023, Photoshop introduced version 24.7.0. Unfortunately, after an extensive investigation, we have determined that this update has rendered our plugin inoperable. The changes introduced in this version are quite significant, and it has become clear that a comprehensive redesign of the plugin is necessary.
Additionally, we have been facing ongoing incompatibility issues with Apple Silicon devices. Achieving compatibility with the macOS version of our plugin would also require a complete overhaul. Faced with these challenges, we've had to make the difficult decision to deprecate the plugin, effective as of October 1st, 2023.
What Does This Mean for You?
We understand that the deprecation of our Photoshop plugin may raise questions and concerns. Here's what this decision entails for you:
While you can continue to use the plugin in its current state, please note that it's compatible only with Photoshop CC2023 (v24.6) or older. Click here to view the full list of compatible versions.
No More Updates
The plugin will no longer receive updates, bug fixes, or new features. This means that any issues or limitations present in the current version will not be addressed through future updates.
End of Support
Our support team will no longer be available to assist you with challenges related to the plugin. While you can certainly continue using the plugin in its current state, we won't be able to provide our usual support resources.
What Should You Do?
We understand that this may be inconvenient and apologize for any disruption this may cause. Here are some steps you can take to adapt to this transition:
1. Explore Alternative Solutions
To continue optimizing your images seamlessly, we recommend exploring alternative solutions. Two practical options are available:
- User-friendly Web Interface
The drag-and-drop Web interface offers a straightforward and efficient method for optimizing your images. Whether you need to convert a handful of images to the popular WebP format or efficiently compress a large batch to reduce file sizes, the web interface enables you to accomplish these tasks with ease.
- Comprehensive Developer API
For developers seeking more control and customization, our Developer API offers an extensive toolkit for seamless image optimization integration into your applications or workflows.
2. Compensation possibility
If you purchased the plugin after January 1st, 2020, you may be eligible for a form of compensation. Please don't hesitate to contact our support team for assistance.
That being said, we understand that this decision may impact your workflow. If you have any questions or require further assistance, please feel free to reach out to our support team.
Is this farewell to the plugin?
We understand that saying goodbye to the plugin may not be easy, and we sincerely appreciate your support and understanding during this transition. However, we want to assure you that we will stay committed to exploring if there is any way to bring the PS plugin back.
