    I assume you create a new thread to say hello? I'm used to there being a 'master thread' for all newbies

    I was pointed to this website from a person on LinkedIn, looking for tutorials, and, hopefully, a new version of the FTT plug in for Photoshop.

    Nice to meet everyone!

    blc0204, Welcome to RetouchPRO
    Hope you enjoy your stay here and make lots of friends.
    Poke around, have fun!

    RetouchPRO is a place for help, with abundant offerings of knowledge, opinions, or just interesting thoughts, We are a remarkably troll-free and welcoming group.

    Each post helps thousands of future users, not just you.

    Just one thing to help the forum... If you use Photoshop you can post fairly large pictures which are under 100k using the 'save for web' function in Photoshop as described in this thread:
    (Size, Quality and/or Format your Attached Images..)
    The save for web function in the latest Photoshop is hidden under File>Export>Save for web (legacy)

    This thread explains (How to attach Files/Images to your Posts or Threads )

    If you want to post a larger resolution that is over 100K then you can host your image elsewhere and attach a link in the thread, but also, always please attach an under 100K version (so the thread remains useful in the future, regardless of external links). (link to the highest resolution.. or the largest size you can upload)

    If you become a "Patron" You can attach files up to 1MB to any post, You won't see any ads on the site, There's a private forum just for Patrons, You can display an automatic signature under your posts, Your posts will clearly identify you as a Patron, so everyone knows of your generous support.

    Welcome aboard !

    Just a few questions.. What version of Photoshop are you using?
    Do you want the FFT for Windows or Mac?
    Which FFT are you presently using?
    Would you prefer a stand alone FFT instead of a plug-in?

    A simple search for FFT in the Nav Bar at the top of each page results in close to three hundred related threads.

      Thanks for the warm welcome. I'm not currently using any FFT because I can't seem to find an updated version. My Photoshop is CC 2015. I use a Mac and it is OS X El Capitan 10.11.6. I followed the FFT instructions exactly like it said when I used the one I found (I cannot remember which version it was, I apologize) but I didn't get the result the tutorials said I was supposed to get.

      I've not had any success with the FFT, as a plug in or stand alone, so I don't know which I would prefer. My main reason for trying to use it was to get rid of the paper texture of old photos I was trying to restore for someone.

      Thanks for your help and I again, for the warm welcome!

        This Joofa Tutorial video may help and there is a link there also for the Joofa plugin
        Remember to get the original color back set your FFT layer to luminosity - or - add a new layer with the Original and set the blend mode to color .

        Sorry about this.... the site, plugin, or support are no longer available. They seem to be dead in the water because not enough people supported them with payments.
        Joofa-Info, " Current Status
        After providing free plugin support for several years, unfortunately, we had to discontinue the support. Development, support, and hosting these plugins incur cost. If there is sufficient interest in the plugins then they may be available again. "

        I have no knowledge about Imagej but know it is used with a mac and has FFT built in.
