Update to story of Photoshop v Nik Plug-ins

I reported in this post   that some people were experiencing problems when using the Google/Nik Collection and the update to Photoshop CC 2017

Tonight (May11, 2017) Adobe Creative Cloud has issued an update to 2017 to correct “Various issues” and one of them, The bugginess of Nik Plug-ins has gone away. At least it has on my machine

Hopefully for everyone else that experienced the problem… and no, not all did

Also there was no problem if you exported from LR or used Nik as a Standalone. It was only when used on top of Photoshop (Plug-in) to be clear

    How can you use NIK as a “stand alone’? I was not aware that such could be done.

      Yes, you can launch Nik effects as a stand alone. You cannot open a raw file in them directly and would have to first convert to Tiff or Jpeg to do so. But if you look in your programs /Apps you can launch them
