Is this a free upgrade to Raya Pro users? Gradiate is not a free upgrade as it is a separate piece of software.

Is Gradiate compatible with CS6? The plugin is only compatible with Photoshop CC versions 19-25. Also known as CC2018 / CC2019 / CC2020 / CC2021 / CC2022 / CC2023 / CC2024.

How do we install it? Fortunately, for Mac and Windows users, there is a simple auto-installer. All you need to do is double-click. Full installation instructions and videos are provided with every download.

What happens if the installer doesn’t work? Gradiate uses Adobe’s new UXP technology which is extremely powerful. According to Adobe, the installation of these new plugins is easy. Just double-click on the installer. That’s it. However, since this is all new for Adobe, it doesn’t always work that way. If the CCX installer doesn’t with for you, simply use the ZXP installer for older versions of CC. And, if none of the installers work for you, we also provide an easy manual installation method as a backup.

Does this work in other languages? Gradiate works perfectly in ALL language versions of Photoshop. However, the plugin is always in English.
