Installation & Updates

Prior to installation, please ensure the image editing application that will serve as the host of Perfectly Clear is closed. Please also close any other open applications for the duration of the installation process.

The installation is managed by the Athentech Application Manager.  Just click 'Install' on the application tile you want to use:





After accepting the End User License Agreement, the installer will automatically attempt to locate all installed versions of Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Photoshop Elements and Corel PaintShop Pro, and then install the plugin for all these products.

If the installer was unable to locate a version of Photoshop or PaintShopPro, or if you are using a different image editing application, you will need to manually locate the appropriate plug-in installation location.

The Perfectly Clear Complete Photoshop plugin will always be installed to this folder:

For Windows, this is:

C:\Program Files\Common Files\Adobe\Plug-Ins\CC\Athentech\Perfectly Clear V3 Photoshop Plugin


For Mac this is:

/Library/Application Support/Adobe/Plug-Ins/CC/Filters/PerfectlyClearCompletePS.plugin


Installing for Multiple Photoshop-Compatible products


During the installation on Windows, the installer will detect several applications that support Photoshop Plugins.  This includes  Photoshop Elements 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, Photoshop CS 5, 5.1, 6 and all CC (14, 2014, 2015, 2015.5, 2017).  You may choose to NOT install a copy of this plug-in for these additional host applications.
