Newbie Booster Elements Hidden Power

Hello all know-how people,

I´ve quite recently installed David Lynch´s Booster Elements software consisting of three plugins: Curve, Mask and Swap Element into PSE 6
for the Mac. The trouble is that the plugs somehow have been registered in the program, but when I start up Elements I get an error message, saying
something that the three plugins won´t load. I get a feeling that there´s something wrong with the whole package.
Please help me solve this mystery (very rare on the Mac platform).

All the best wishes

Sonny

Re: Booster Elements Hidden Power

The name is Richard, btw. You might reconsider the idea that there will be something wrong with the entire package. If that were the case it would never work for anyone, and you'd have to have been the only one ever to order it or even try it out. I'd have to be a very sloppy business person and/or a criminal hoping to rip millions of people off so I could retire and be off to some foreign country before any body noticed. Selling something that flat out didn't work would be really bad press for someone who maintains websites and teaches courses in the subject of image editing and is known by thousands of people...So it is pretty unlikely that the package is flawed. To clear up any misconception, the plugin is made by humansoftware, not by me. More likely something simple is going wrong, which can be anything from an improper installation, to conflicts on your system because of the way it is configured.

Can you post the exact wording of the error message?

I've replied to this by direct mail. The reason why I suspect there's something wrong with the (packaging of) the package is that when I try to make an alias of the folder package the icon doesn't change to that of a proper
PS plugin but shows up as that of an ordinary folder.

Re: Booster Elements Hidden Power

Sounds like you may not be installing this correctly. Are you following the installation instructions?

Re: Booster Elements Hidden Power

I've followed the directions for the installation, tried a couple of workarounds like creating an alias of the damn application and pasting it in the plugins folder, tried to make an optional plugins folder and nothing works... Now why don't you try to give me my money back (or some really clever advice)???

Re: Booster Elements Hidden Power

Well, um, here's some clever advice...why don't you ask for a refund from who you bought it from? You didn't buy it from me.

Instead of trying loads of work-arounds, how about installing the PLUGIN in the PLUGINS folder instead of shortcuts which probably wont work. Don't move the folder, don't make a shortcut for the folder, don't make a shortcut for the plugin. MOVE the plugin to the PLUGINS folder and RESTART.

You need to pay a little more attention to what you are buying beside reading the instructions which I am pretty sure you have not followed, because they do not say to make a shortcut.

This is called operator error. There is nothing wrong with the plugin.

Re: Booster Elements Hidden Power

BTW,
What is in the folder you are moving to the plugins folder, and where is the plugin that you are moving the folder to?

Re: Booster Elements Hidden Power

Hello,

For God´s sake, can't you read what I'm saying? The plugins ARE IN THE PROPER PLUGINS FOLDER together with all the other functioning plugins! The money is no big deal. What bugs me is your response. I give up, you can't reason with or win against arrogant stupidity.

Cheerio

Sonny

PS

The folder contains what the installer has put in there and is directed by me to the
PSE plugins folder AND THE PLUGINS WON'T LOAD!!!
