Buzz >oil

Dear all,
Even with the few tutes availble for Buzz in the net, all I see everyone is using the Simplifier 1, 2 and colour edge and colour mono.
Anyone using this oil, watercolour,......... or presets? any links???

Buzz Tutorials

The link to this gallery of examples and mini-tutorials has been posted previously in this thread (courtesy of a CheryH find).

In case you missed it, it's worth repeating because it is simply outstanding:

I've had Buzz Simplifier a few weeks now and haven't stopped using it since. It would have to be my favourite filter right now and I enjoy thoroughly experimenting and applying other filters after buzzing. I've not been disappointed at any stage, each result is always a surprise! This one no different.

Buzz (using setting 3)
Auto Hue/Sat - Strong
Xero/Illustrator
Duped layer - Photo Wizz/Luma Negative (free filters)
Layer Mode - Soft Light
Merged all.

The results posted here are beauties and I've enjoyed viewing them. Thank you. Thanks for the great links too.

PSP8.01

This is another example I did last week. I was aiming for a colourful poster effect so made sure to select a very colourful photo. I've tried it also on busy street scenes and liked the results.

Buzzed - http://www.fo2pix.com/applications/a...p?id=8_0_6_0_C

Filter/Adapt Equalization - http://www.reindeergraphics.com/free.shtml

Buzzed again

Optional - Cutout/8/1/4

Aim Filter/USM - http://www.aim-dtp.net/aim/plug-ins/fifo/

Dupe layer - Mode Soft light

Merge and increase contrasts and levels if required.

You can further experiment with layer blend modes after duping your result.

Just starting with BuzzPro and haven't found the best technique yet. This one came out pretty well.

Much trouble with Buzz Simplifier & Lite

I hate to be the one to dash cold water on the nice things being said about the Buzz plugins.

I was impressed with what I saw people doing with these plugins too. So I downloaded and installed the Buzz Simplifier demo and tried it about 2-3 times out of the possible 30. I decided that Buzz Lite might be more what I was looking for, so I uninstalled Buzz Simplifier and attempted to install the Lite demo. Whereupon the install program locked up and would not install the Lite demo. So I tried uninstalling the Lite and reinstalling the Simplifier and no go. The programs all will stop in the middle of installing and none will now install on my pc.

I contacted the tech support dept. and they only suggested that my downlods were corrupted and to try other copies. I did as they suggested but something the programs put on my pc, possibly in the registry, will not let me install anything of theirs. I know they do not want anyone using up their free demo tries and then reinstalling to get more free tries, but that was not my intention.

Now I am out of luck as to purchasing a Buzz program because it would not install.

If anyone comes across a similar program that will approximate Buzz Simplifier, I would really be interested.

The last I heard from the company was an email asking me if I had decided to purchase a full program yet?

Steve

Just a thought. If you have system restore activated you could go back to a time before the installation. This should correct your registry and then you could reinstall.
