buZZ pro Installation in Photoshop

I just wrote a detailed explanation of what I need and when I submitted it it dissapeared. Some time ago I installed buZZ pro in Photoshop 7.0 and although all of the elements of the software are in the photoshop files, it doesn't work . . . the stacks don't load. Can anybody tell me exactly where the .stk files and the .plug files need to be located in photoshop. Currently the entire buZZ folder is in the plug-ins file. There is also a copy of the buZZpro.8bf file in the filters file. Thank you!

Joan

This probably won't fix your problem, but FWIW my Mac version of buZZ.X only has eight 8bf plug-ins that reside in a single folder in the Photoshop Plugins folder. Still works under CS4.

What you describe sounds like an older version of the software.

Thank you for your reply. I will certainly try moving things around in the PhotoShop folder.

Actually that worked. I removed the buZZpro.8bf from the filters folder and left the complete buZZ folder in the plug-ins folder. Thanks again.

Re: buZZ pro Installation in Photoshop

Hello,

I am trying to get the old Buzz Pro filters working in PhotoShop CS4 on a MacPro OS X (10.5 Leopard). Photoshop CS4 has had the latest (July 2009) updates applied.

I see earlier in this thread that someone was able to get the 8 Buzz Pro filters to work with PS CS4 but it is not working for me.

I copied the whole Buzz.X folder and stuck it in the top level of the Photoshop CS4 Plugin Folder, I tried sticking the Buzz.X folder in the Plugin/Filters folder, and I tried sticking the 8 individual filter files in the Plugins/Filters folder. In all cases, when I restart PS, I get an error message and when I go to Help/System Info I see an attempt to load each of the 8 filters but it always says "No Version".

If someone has the Buzz Prop filters working in the current (summer 2009) version of Photshop CS4, I would appreciate knowing how they got it to work.

Also, if someone can recommend an alternative to Buzz Pro that works with Photoshop CS4, I would be interested to hear about it.

TIA,

--Doug/Salem Design

Thanks for the suggestion.

I will look into it in more detail later. It certainly is a similar concept to Buzz Pro but it seems less flexible.

Re: buZZ pro Installation in Photoshop

I think that it does just as much as Buzz if not more and for a lot less money. Which is moot if one has already paid for Buzz.

As you say, it is quite inexpensive.

Since we need something that will work with PS CS4, I bought the Topaz Simplify and installed it.

And at first glance, it does look very good. We need to try using it for a while to really form a conclusion but so far so good.

Thanks for the recommendation.
