Unable to download Hidden Tools

Hi Everyone,
Please excuse me if this is an annoyingly basic question. I've just purchased the Hidden Tools for Elements 2, and got a link to a page. I'd since closed that page while I was waiting for information that said I needed to right click the links.

If I try to get back to that page:
ftp://hppe21kooitnelspedfswasc@thebo....com/../../../
I get asked for a password.

I would appreciate any advice or suggestions on this.
Yours,
Stephen.

Stephen, Welcome to RetouchPRO

hppe21kooitnelspedfswasc is the password

I would use extreme caution in opening/downloading them unless you are sure of the contents... the files I found there are:
.ftpquota 4bytes
welcome.msg 131bytes

Thanks for your reply Ol'Baldy. I look forward to some interesting discussions. I'm surprised you advised 'caution' as I thought this was the official forums for the Elements hidden tools.
Stephen.

This is RetouchPro... your file downloads are at thebookdoc . com

Richard Lynch, "thebookdoc" is a credible Photoshop author.... but I always recommend caution when downloading files from the internet...

Noted; thanks. More bad news: I've just tried that password you gave and generated the error message '530 Login authentication failed.'

Re: Unable to download Hidden Tools

Hi Anyone,
I've done some searching around the forums and found someone referring to a 'free rout' to the place where you can download the files. Could anyone please be so kind as to tell me where this 'free rout' is so that I can try to get the software that I've paid for?
I would really appreciate a bit of help on this. Thanks in advance.
Stephen.

Re: Unable to download Hidden Tools

Hi Stephen,

In case I botched my reply to your email here is the link to Powertools free version route.

http://hiddenelements.com/elements7_free_tools.php

Once there, under Download, click on the button "Get Download Link". Fill in your details and You will be sent an Email with the link to the file. Make sure you download the HPPE7_v.7.0.zip file for elements 7

My main problem was that my ISP had sidelined the Emails containing the link as spam, Once I sorted that out it was straight forward.

On the same page are instructions on installation. This can be Quite tricky so you will need to be careful with it, especially if you are using Vista.

Good Luck

John

Re: Unable to download Hidden Tools

Hi John,
Thanks for taking the time and trouble to reply. Small hitches. I ordered the tools for Photoshop Elements 2. The link you gave is for version 7. And indeed the intallation instructions on the 'Readme' file apply to Photoshop namely: C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\
Application Data\Adobe\Photoshop Elements\7.0\
Photo Creations\photo effects

But my Photoshop Elements 2 is
C:\Program files\Photoshop Elements 2

And there is no sign of the directory '...Photo Creation\photo effects. So if you have any further suggestion, I'd appreciate it.
All the best,
Stephen.

Re: Unable to download Hidden Tools

Stephen,

I said it was tricky. I use PSE 7. Even with PSE 7 the dircectory for Effects in C:\Program files\Photoshop Elements 7 does not exist. Power tools must be installed in:

C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\
Application Data\Adobe\Photoshop Elements\7.0\
Photo Creations\photo effects

You also have to delete one of the files which is rebuilt when PSE is relaunched after the installation.

I have had a quick look at Powertools for PSE 2 and the only free item I can see is "Hidden Power Tools Free Actions Player".

The Only Person that can really help you is "Richard Lynch" the author. He is best contacted through this forum.

I personally would upgrade to PSE 7 because many of the plugins etc are written for PSE5 or 6 and above.

Best of luck

John.
