FFT Madness

Hi all

I'm at my wits' end on this. I've searched this forum and pulled up all that had to do with FFT, I've installed the fft and ifft filters (in three different folder because I never see this filter appear anywhere!)

I run Pshop 7.01 on a PC....where exactly do I find the fft filter? It's not in the filters/other folder (unless it renames itself to something else). I can see the HSB/HSL filter (which only runs in RGB mode) but no FFT.

Help!

Thanks

Alex

Which Problem to Tackle First

Quote:
Run the FFT filter
Run Filter>Other>HSB/HSL selecting RGB to HSB:If this filter isn't present you'll have to install it. You'll find it on your Photoshop CD (\Goodies\Optional Plug-Ins\Photoshop Only\HSL & HSB Filter) - just copy the "Hsbhsl.8bf" file to your PS filter directory.

FFT Filters

Cheg,

I have a similar problem. I have down loaded the FFT IFFT filters and there they sit in my Adobe plug-in folder, but do not show up in the filter list anywhere. I haven't been able to find out why or how to access them.

I have CS and a Mac G5

Thanks for the link, but like I mentioned, I don't know where the FFT filter is (in terms of where it appears in Photoshop - not where it is in the folders) If someone could post a screencap of where I can locate it, then I'll know where to activate it!

According to the readme text...

Quote:
Setup instructions:
1. Extract files from archive into any folder
2. Copy files FFT.8bf from FFT folder and IFFT.8bf from IFFT folder
into your "Plugins" folder such as C:\...\Paint Shop Pro 7\Plugins
3. Start you Adobe Photoshop or Jacs PaintShop as usual. Installed
plugins FFT and iFFT should appear in your plugins list.

If you put them in your PS plugins folder c:\program files\adobe\photoshop 7.0\plug-ins\
Don't forget to restart photoship if it is open, and it should be under the name Alex Chirokov (probably the first one after the divider)

C:\Program Files\Adobe\Photoshop 7.0\Plug-Ins\Adobe Photoshop Only

Then this:
C:\Program Files\Adobe\Photoshop 7.0\Plug-Ins\Adobe Photoshop Only\Filters

Those two filters appear in all those folders (to be on the safe side), but don't *seem* to appear when I start Pshop...

Ahhh...did not to know to look for Alex Chirokov (so it does rename itself after all!) It's there but greyed out so I'll fiddle around with it until I can get it to work!

Thx

Alex

Ok, found it but...

In Rô's FFT tutorial , he says to make the image grayscale and duplicate the layer. Once that's done, Alex Chirokov's filters are still greyed out. They only appear when I convert the psd file to RGB. What am I doing wrong in this case? Does the image have to be in another format? Jpg? Tiff?

Thanks

Alex
