    Does this work in Photos on OS X Yosemite?
    I don’t see any extensions there.

    Dave, the editing extensions feature was introduced to Photos with OS X El Capitan, so they won’t be available in OS X Yosemite. Of course, if you upgrade to OS X El Capitan, they will then appear in the Extensions preferences menu.

    Does this also work with “trial version” on El Capitan? However, I don’t see this extension on my photo edit.

    Just downloaded a trial copy of Pixelmator. I am running MacOS 10.12.1. When I try to enable Pixelmator as extension in Photo, Pixelmator does not show up under more in the extensions menu. I have closed and restarted both Photos and Pixelmator and still it doesn’t show up. What do I need to do?

    Hello, So I have osx Yosemite 10.10.5 and of course I cant use the retouch extension. But can have those editing capabilities in the app itself ? I want to edit brightness, and enhance, colors ect with a adjustable circle.
