HUE UXP is a version of HUE that runs on Adobe's new UXP panel infrastructure, compared to the older CEP panel type that is no longer maintained by Adobe, or supported in many newer Macs.

This new version of HUE allows you to use ARM-based Macs (Eg. M1, M2-based chips), with the latest version of Photoshop.

Until now HUE has been running on a CEP-based panel, which Adobe is slowly phasing out and ARM-based Macs do not fully support. Read more here. We will stop supporting HUE CEP from September 1st, 2023.

The UXP panel has all the functionalities of the CEP version of HUE and won’t limit you from using the latest version of Photoshop on ARM-based Macs. It is fully compatible with the latest versions of Photoshop, on Intel, Ryzen, and ARM-based computers.

You can download the HUE UXP panel here:

After installing HUE UXP, there are a few things to note.

  • We recommend having both versions of HUE installed, as the UXP version of HUE is still in beta. If you run into issues with HUE UXP, you can switch back to the CEP version of HUE and continue working.

  • It is not possible to run both HUE CEP and HUE UXP at the same time, you can use only one at once. Although you can have them both installed on your computer.

  • When you first use HUE UXP, you must turn it on on the plugins tab.

  • If you have both installed, ensure that you have DIFFERENT Working Folders for both. They can not run on the same Working Folder, and it is recommended that you have completely different folder paths for each.

    After installing HUE UXP, you will be led to setting up HUE UXP working folder. Upon the first time you open the panel in Photoshop, you will then need to locate the workspace to the work folder you just created.
