    Hi Ian,

    Please try installing the plugins manually.

    For Lightroom:

    • Make sure LuminarAI and Lightroom are closed.
    • Download the plugin file from here (click Download in the upper right): 
    • Right-click the .zip you've downloaded > click Extract All. When prompted to specify the destination for the extracted file, click Browse. Paste the following path into the address bar at the top of the window that opens: %appdata%\Adobe\Lightroom\Modules
    • Click Select Folder and then click Extract.

    For Photoshop:

    • Make sure Photoshop is closed.
    • Download the plugin from here.
    • Navigate to the Photoshop Plugins folder. The default path is: C:\Program Files\Common Files\Adobe\Plug-Ins\CC
      For Photoshop CS5 and CS6, the paths will look like this: C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Photoshop version name\Plug-Ins\Filters
      and C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Photoshop version name\Plug-ins
    • Copy the .8bf file into the folder(s) you've opened in Step 3

    If the issue persists, please get in touch with our support team at They will be happy to help!

    I already managed to get the plugin installed. I wasn't really asking for help - just pointing out that the plugin installation option during LuminAI's install can be confusing. A little bit of text explaining you want the LR exe file, as well as validating it's the correct exe file would be a big help IMHO.
