Re: Impressionist plugin: 64 bit version?

Hi friends, my first post...
I tried to run Impressionist under CS5 (32 & 64) Win7 and no luck. I targeted the 'additional plug in folder' on the Photoshop preferences to the its defalt plug ins folder. Restarted CS5 and no luck again.
Retargeted that preference option using CS3 to another folder, restarted PS CS3, retarget again back to plugin folder and it worked fine.
But it keeps loosing the reference folder every time I restart the computer. Maybe it is an issue between Vista and Impressionista?
P.S.: all the folders were renamed as posted here.

Thank you! All the best!

Re: Impressionist plugin: 64 bit version?

Hello Andrey...

Welcome to RetouchPro. Sorry you are having problems with Impressionist.

I'm running PS CS6 (32 and 64) under Win 7 (64). Here's what worked for me. I put the \Impressionist folder (containing all the other Impressionist folders and files) here:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\Adobe Photoshop CS6\Plug-ins

... and it works fine under CS6 (32) under Win 7 (64).

Perhaps try this method and see if it helps.

If not, please provide more information regarding you situation. Does "no luck" mean you are getting some sort of error message? Can you even see Impressionist listed as an option in Photoshop's Filter menu? The more detail, the better.

Good luck. Keep us posted on progress.

Hello Danny!

Thank you for your reply.
I tried this method on (Win7) CS5 32 & 64 and it is not even listed in the Filter menu. I target the aditional plug-ins folder under the preferences and it is still not listed.

When I try CS3 (32) Win7, Impressionist is listed but no presets are listed. Just that famous "Charcoal" mentioned on an earlier post.

Then I retarget the aditional plug-ins folder preferences twice and back to \adobe\PS CS3\plugins And it works perfectly with all presets.

Do you think it may be a conflict on preference folders detection? My computer is a Desktop Win7 with Adobe Master Colections CS3 and CS5. Should I uninstall CS3?

Thank you all!

Re: Impressionist plugin: 64 bit version?

It sounds like you perhaps have the Impressionist plugin file (.8bf) and the support folders/files (\brushes, \papers, etc.) installed in multiple locations, perhaps as a result of trying to make it work "somewhere."

I would suggest the following:
* Use the Win 7 search function to FIND all instances of the Impressionist plugin file (.8bf) and all the support folders/files.
* Copy (Drag/drop) ALL these folders and files out of the "additional plugins" folder and \adobe\PS CS3\plugins somewhere else... such as a new folder on your desktop.
* Then delete all Impressionist files and folders from "additional plugins" folder and \adobe\PS CS3\plugins.

Create a new folder \FIX IMPRESSIONIST inside \adobe\PS CS3\plugins

I am assuming you have the .zip that contains all the Impressionist folders and files. If not, get it here:
http://asnailpace.com/blog/impressionist-plug-in/

Then install Impressionist and all its support folders/files into \FIX IMPRESSIONIST

Once we get it working again under CS3, we'll go onto CS5.
