Adobe Dropped Configurator Support For Photoshop CC 2014

The Death Of Flash Based PanelsAdobe dropped configurator support

First I’d like to say, this was very Apple of Adobe to do this.

Many of you who use panels for Photoshop, including mine, might have noticed you can no longer use panels in Photoshop CC 2014.

The reason is, Adobe has dropped support for the Configurator Tool which is used to make the panels, so they will no longer work in Photoshop CC 2014.

They really want us using the Adobe Add On Tools / Extensions to manage all our plugins.

Current panels were built with Adobe Configurator used a Flash based user interface. Adobe has dropped flash based extensions and is moving into HTML5 extensions. Which makes sense. Flash is slowly dying. But this means that general photographers and designers will no longer be able to easily and quickly make panels. It will require some background knowledge in programming HTML5.

Creating New Panels

For those of you that built panels with Configurator, you’ll need to re-authored using Extension Building and HTML5.

This is pretty unfortunate as I really liked the panel Configurator. Like many others, I’ll have to re-author my panel in HTML5 . . . once I learn how to program. :/
