Print Studio Pro Compatibility with Photoshop CC 2018

Hi, I'm a Mac user and I have a Pixma Pro-100 printer. I've been using Print Studio Pro as a plugin for Photoshop CC 2017. I just upgraded to Photoshop CC 2018, and Print Studio Pro is no longer available. I tried to download it and install but the installer doesn't seem to recognize CC 2018. My Mac Operating System is Version 10.12.6 (Sierra).

You can copy the plugin folder from CC2017 to CC2018.

 

Or you can select the CC2018 folder when you run the PSP plugin installer.

I've run into the same problem, and I've tried PSP 2.2 in every plug-in folder of Photoshop CC 2018.  I don't believe PSP 2.2 is compatible with Photoshop CC 2018--this version of Photoshop breaks it.

Here's a screen shot of W10 machine, PSCC 2018 and PSP 2.2 running:

Here's my file tree:

I also verified that it works on my MacBook Air High Sierra. On the Mac the file path is /Applications/Adobe Photoshop CC 2018/Plug-Ins/PrintStudioPro/

 

I don't know what to suggest. I have never deleted my Preferences file in PS but I have seen on line that sometimes that is recommedned when there a re problems.

Re: Print Studio Pro Compatibility with Photoshop CC 2018

Thank you, John, it's working for me now. I've been printing from Photoshop for many years, and have never run into any software quite as kludgy as Print Studio Pro. But at least it's working now and providing more control than the default driver. Kind of like it was an afterthought for Canon to develop a Mac version. But maybe I'm being too harsh; maybe it's just me, but I've rarely dealt with software that seems so counterintuitive. At least in recent years ...

Thanks again!

Glad it worked. I agree about PSP. I rarely use it, but it does have one advantage I have seen. PS printing is not as easy as LR for folks that aren't experienced with PS and PSP does throw all the correct "switches". But, if one knows how to print from PS I don't see much advantage to PSP.

 

And using it with LR bypasses the LR print engine which does output sharpening.

Thanks, John, I print note cards on 7x10 glossy paper and PSP seems to give me more precise control over the margins, which must be even on all four sides of the image. Believe it or not, I don't use Lightroom. Photoshop and Bridge serve me well, along with some excellent PS plugins.
