At present, there is a compatibility issue between Adobe Photoshop 22.3 and M1 Macbooks / Macbook Pros that mean 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 M1 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.

We are in the process of making our Photoshop Extension for HUE compatible with PS 22.3 by migrating it to a new UXP based extension. We will update this article when the change has been made!

Further reading by Adobe can be found in this article.

In the meantime, if you do have an M1 chip Macbook then we would suggest that you stay on Photoshop 22.2 to avoid the issue.

If you want to check if you have an M1 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 M1 Chip.

In case you have any questions you can reach out to us via in-app chat or via emailing support@creativeforce.io.
