Luminar 4 refuses to recognize Topaz plugins on Mac. I saw postings about how they cannot be used on Windows but they also don't work on a Mac. When I go to Edit/Plugins/Other/Add, the apps will not highlight nor will the Open button activate, no matter what I try to click on. Luminar sees the folders containing the Topaz apps (DeNoise AI and Sharpen AI) but it won't work. Since the Topaz apps are incredibly useful, not being able to use them with Luminar would really limit Luminar's usability. The only work around would be to use the Topaz apps, save the edited photo as a .TIFF and then edit that in Luminar (or go through Lightroom, I suppose). But having to resave every photo as a .TIFF is a pretty inefficient workflow.
