Check your version of Eye Candy 6

If you use Eye Candy 6 then please check your version number in the about box. On Windows, start Eye Candy 6 and open the Help menu to find the about box. On a Mac, start Eye Candy 6 and then go to the Photoshop menu to find the about box.

If your Eye Candy 6 version is not or newer then you need to throw away your old installers and download the latest Windows or Mac version of Eye Candy 6.

Older versions use our old activation system which will stop working for Eye Candy 6 on May 21st, 2012.  Eye Candy 6 won’t immediately die, but you won’t be able to do a new installation and activate it.

If Eye Candy 6 is working for you then you don’t need to reinstall. But if it ever gives you any trouble (like activation errors) then uninstall the old version and run that new installer. Instructions for uninstalling are below.

    I received notification via my Eye Candy 6 that I need to throw away my old installers. Please tell me how to do this and how do I reinstall Eye Candy 6 once I delete it via Windows 7 uninstall program feature.

    I just upgraded to CS6, and have successfully upgraded and installed Eye Candy 6,
    Image Doctor 2 and Blowup 2. I also have Eye Candy 5 – Impact. Is it compatible with CS6?
    and can it be upgraded? ANd if so, how do I get it – it’s not listed on your site.

      Eye Candy 5 is not officially supported in CS6. You can perform a custom install, but it must be put into the 32-bit version of CS6. The install path may be different, depending on your OS. Here, is an article on how to perform a custom install.

      Since you already have Eye Candy 6, there would be no other upgrades for Eye Candy 5, unless you have additional license codes you wish to upgrade. If you need further assistance, please visit and submit a support request.

    Ok I did some more research online and even tho i have a 64 bit system they suggested to someone else to install the 32 bit as well .. once i did that it works …. no way to explain that one tho lol.

      Glad you found the answer. The 32-bit version of Eye Candy 6 is the only one that will work with Corel. If you have any other problems, you can hit the Support link to enter a ticket and we’ll get right back to you.

    I had brought my Eye Candy Bundle package 5 on e-bay, I did not receive the disk to it, and downloaded it from the internet. Now that I have gone and purchased a new computer, I have no way to retrieve my Eye Candy from my old computer. I am using Photoshop Elements 7 any help in being able to purchase the program once again? My new computer is running windows 7, will I have to upgrade to Eye Candy Package 6 and if so, will 6 do the same as my bundle package 5 did??

      If you purchased it from a seller on Ebay, do you still have your license codes? Please open a support ticket here, and send us any information you have regarding your purchase.
