I’m not sure I understand your question.
I assume you have downloaded FoveaPro/FFT
Filter > IP*Fourier > FFT(Forward)
This gives you the FFT
Then you use
Filter > IP*Fourier > Apply Filter and FFT(Inverse)
This gives you the Image back
Hope this helps
Sorry Ken. Mine was a terrible post. I have all the IP*thisandthat's in Filters and I wish to delete it all. But I can't seem to find the appropriate files 8bf in the Plugin Folder. I see nothing called Fovea, IP or anything that seems to relate.
If anyone has installed the trial version of FoveaPro and now wishes to uninstall it
The problem is that there is no uninstall program. Not even for users who have purchased one version and need to uninstall it to upgrade to a newer version.
With hindsight we should have created a restore point before installation that we could now go back to. However with the lack of hindsight the uninstall must be done manually.
Here are my suggestions
You originally downloaded FP3.zip or FP3.sit
These extracted to
PC FoveaPro3 Installer.exe
So where ever you downloaded these files originally – these can be deleted.
Now for the installed filters
When you originally installed this it would have installed into a default folder something like this
c:\Program Files\Adobe\Photoshop 7.0\Plug-ins\Filters\
The big problem is that all the FoveaPro filters are now mixed up with your other filters. Fortunately all the filters are dated the same so if you sort the folder by date all the FoveaPro filters will be grouped together and can all be deleted.
The date on the Windows version is 14/4/2003 (Mac may be different)
So here is the Easy way for Windows XP users
Click Start > Search
In the All or Part of Name Box Type 8bf Then click Search
Once the search is complete click the date modified tab and all the FoveaPro filters will be grouped together with the date 14/4/2003
Highlight all of them and delete
If any of you are uneasy about deleting any other filters created on the same day here is a list of the FoveaPro filters that need deleting. There ate 171 of them listed alphabetically.
End of List
Thank you so much Ken for taking the time. I was getting a little anxious and concerned but everything is back to normal now.
ByRo has now posted his tutorial on FFT RGB which can be found here
Thanks ByRo for a very clear Tutorial.
Mac users can follow along using image-J mentioned in this thread
ImageJ FFT on the Mac
Well I have had some interesting results paying with imageJ. It definitely works when you erase the centre star. If you make a small erase of the centre star the image is blurred. The bigger the erased circle, the sharper the image becomes. Be careful not to erase the other stars or the image turns black.
Its brilliant. This has made the process so easy and simple. I tried it with 3 images. Thanks for posting this trick.
Image J is part of The Image Processing Toolkit
Available Here for Free
ImageJ runs on Linux, Mac OS 9, Mac OS X and Windows
The Docs are here
And the bit about FFT is here
Thanks for moving threads. I used to be very confused about using FFT RGB and I thought talking about ImageJ in the FFT RGB Tutorial thread may confuse even more.
Maybe we need an ImageJ FFT Tutorial as well.
I quite like ImageJ. It’s easier to use than FFT RGB. The downside is that being a standalone program and not a plug-in you have to come out of PS to use it. However as this should be the first step it’s not that bad.
I am on a PC but the program should be the same on a mac.
OK now your problem.
Here are the steps.
File > Open and load the picture
Process > FFT > FFT
The FFT will now open as in attachment 2
Double click the colour Picker and choose Black as your colour
Double click on the brush and choose a brush size of 10 (on this picture)
Now paint out all the stars except the centre one as in the attached picture 3
Process > FFT > Inverse FFT
Save the results
And that’s it. Your picture should now be texture free and ready to load into PS.
There should be no need for a black layer as If done correctly the picture will not be transparent.
If you need any more help just ask and perhaps post your image a bit bigger.
Sorry about the delay in replying but it was a big weekend
I tried again as you suggest by crossing out the outer stars while leaving the center star in tact, but all I get is a black image. I have had good results with the erasing centre star technique. As the same people wrote ImageJ you would think it's got to work the same on both PC and Mac the same way. So I'm scratching my head.
Krishna, did you do the erase centre star technique or the black out the outer stars method? Also are you using a Mac?
Has anyone else with a Mac tried imageJ, if so which method are you using?
