At present, there is a compatibility issue between Adobe Photoshop 22.3+ and Apple Silicon (M1 and M2) Macbooks / Macbook Pros which means Photoshop Extensions are not able to be run.

Any computer with that combination will not be able to run any CEP Panels within Photoshop.

What this means for Creative Force is that our HUE application does not run within Photoshop 22.3+ if you have an Apple Silicon (M1 and M2) Chip Macbook / Macbook Pro. As it is based on a CEP panel architecture. This does not affect you if your macOS device is using an Intel-based chip.

Further reading by Adobe can be found in this article.

However, we have finished implementing HUE on a UXP-based extension that is compatible with PS 22.3+. More details about the beta HUE UXP panel can be found here. You are welcome to download our HUE UXP beta version by clicking the below links:

If you do have an Apple Silicon (M1 and M2) chip Macbook then trying the HUE UXP beta version is one option and the other option would be moving back to Photoshop 22.2 to avoid the issue.
If you want to check if you have an Apple Silicon (M1 and M2) Chip in your device, you can do so with the following steps.
Click on the Apple Logo in the top left corner, and go to "About this Mac"


From there you will see whether your device is using an Intel Chip or Apple Silicon (M1 and M2) Chip.

In case you have any questions you can reach out to us via in-app chat or via emailing
