  2. Open Color Finale from your applications
  3. In the header, twirl down under Color Finale and click on “check for updates”.

If you are still having trouble, there’s lots of good info on Color Grading Central’s support page, or you can chat with the Color Grading Community on Color Grading Central’s Facebook page.
