Hi Ro (and Flora),

1 - I am using PC (laptop actually right now, but Win).

2 - Yes, sorry, I haven't upgraded, so I forget there is CS2. I am using CS1. (Could that be the problem?)

3 - I did not find an old version to try and download. Only the 2 new versions, of which I downloaded the RGB one.

4 - Yes, I've downloaded it twice now, in case in corrupted while transferring.

5 - Yes, I can actually click on them, which gives me the error.

Sorry to be a pain.... I do thank you though for any help.

I don't know if this might help or not... I don't get an error in but I've attached a screenshot showing where the FFT files are saved on my system. WinXPSP2.

Okay, I finally got it to work, after uninstalling and reinstalling for the upteenth time, but, it would not work on the image that I am trying to restore.

I was able to open it on a different image.

The one I'm trying to restore is RGB 8, no layers.. not really large file, only 89.1Mb.

Now that I have it working, sort of, any clues as to why it's not working on the one image that I need it to work with? *I consider it.. just my luck *

Thanks!

That's not an 89MB jpeg I assume... how about pixel dimensions? Is any side larger than 3072 pixels? If that's the case, http://www.retouchpro.com/forums/sho...265#post112265 that might help - the only problem I ran into but I didn't get an error when the image was apparently larger than the filter likes, just no stars.

Yes, actually it is a jpeg... but, it's 9639x3230.

Thanks for the link to the other thread, I'll go start reading.

skyarcher,

welcome to RP.

your image is too large, as has already been pointed out. there are other plugins that do this as well. i think it's the polaroid dust and scratch removal program, that when used as a plugin, has a limit of about 1024 pixels on any one side. it might even be smaller. so, this isnt uncommon.

also, why would you need to be working on an 89 meg file as an 89 meg file? i know folks are always trying to get the best possible results and resolutions, but ostensibly you're going to print this out at some point and your print just is never going to print at that kind of resolution. inks just cant get it that fine, so why work on such a huge file as a huge file? you could easily cut this in half, or even more, and lose nothing in the print.

i find that about the largest you ever need, at least for home inkjet printing, is about 1024 x 1024 at roughly 200 dpi. this may vary a bit depending on colors and printing choices, but i've never been disappointed in the printing by these choices. now, if you're doing printing on commercial presses or something like that, then that may well be a different story and i'll shut up and go away because i have no idea there. but if only on a home printer, i think you could save yourself a lot of trouble and time due to processing slowness by cutting your file size down.

so, why the large file size?

Hi Craig,

Because it is not my image that I am working on. This is the file that was given to me to try and do what I can to restore. I won't be printing, but sending it back as per instructions. What they do with it, I don't know.

Thank you though for seconding that it is too large for plugin.

Hi SkyArcher

Try this
http://www.retouchpro.com/forums/sho...0&page=1&pp=15

Image Analyser will handle larger file sizes than Alex Chirakov FFT. I don’t know what the maximum size is.

Ken
