    Fast Fourier Transform (FFT) Tool for Mac
    by BenTheArtist
    I've noticed that the older FFT plugins for Mac's version of Photoshop are no longer available on the sites that used to provide them. Does anyone have a copy of the plug-in that they would be willing to share? I have CS3, so it needs to be CS3-compatible....

    FFT for Mac OS
    by sjm
    I recently watched some videos at YouTube using an FFT filter to remove the texture effect on older printed photographs. I've not been able to find the FFT filter for Mac. Can someone steer me in the right direction?

    Hi Fellow retouchers
    I've just joined, and I want to learn how to retouch old photos of my Dads. Firstly, I can't find anywhere the download button for the FFT plugin for Photoshop! I use a macbook air. Can anyone point me in the right direction to start downloading the plugin please.

    FFT plugin for Mac
    by Joofa
    Hi,

    I saw some comments regarding FFT plugin for Mac Photoshop. I have been using my own Photoshop FFT plugin for some stuff. I am making that freely and publicly available. Please visit http://djjoofa.com/download to download it.

    At this stage it is only CS3, Mac OS 10.6.8....

    Here is FFT for 64 bit photoshop
    by Cadencia
    I have modified Alex Chirikov's FFT routines to run in 64 bit Photoshop, and process 16 bit images. The software may be downloaded from:
    http://www.rognemedia.no/diverse/FFT.zip

    I make no promises, but would appreciate feedback.

    You can process either 8 or 16 bit images...

    I have never been able to download the plugin.

      AFAIK the product is no longer offered:

      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.

        The edge anomaly reduction technique involves a simple Content Aware procedure and the details are in the link on Joofa's web site.

        Here are the results in three steps on this example image (same one I used before). The three images are a) the original b) With just using the FFT c) with some ACR adjustments (I could have done a better job with these adjustments).

        Very happy to have this tool in my Mac tool box for Photoshop!
        I'm curious as to what the plugin does. If it's just a fast fourier transform and an inverse fast fourier transform, it could be replaced by a simple python script with some basic error checking included. Some of the libraries aren't perfectly invertible due to scale factors, but it's possible to fix that. If it really required a lot of development time, that's due to Adobe's api and color handling changes over the years.

          Hi Klew
          I would not be surprised that there may be more difficulty due to Adobe that the actual math yet I really don't know. A far as I can tell it is just FFT and IFFT without anymore bells and whistles. Dr Joofa's plugin is real easy to use with PS yet that helps no one since it is not longer being provided.

          If it isn't hard, it would be great if someone would do that simple work and provide a nice plugin for PS that works with the most recent versions of PS and continues to be supported. I still have Dr Joofa's plugin on CC 2015 which works just fine and quite fast yet have not tried to port it over to CC 2015.5 It will no doubt eventually not work on some future version of PS and it would be nice to have an easy replacement.

          If it were so easy, I an not sure why someone has not done it before now. Glad the forum has pointed out alternatives because I will probably have to go use those alternatives eventually.

            I'm not sure why that hasn't happened. I have a couple suspicions. Adobe plugins may be incompatible with GPL licenses, and most fourier transform libraries are GPL licensed. This stuff does come up on Linux though. This is from 2010. They implemented something slightly more complicated than a simple fourier transform.

            I have never used Adobe's plugin api, but I will look at it. My earlier point was that python could be used for this if you wanted to read a file from disk and apply a fourier transform or inverse fourier transform. You don't need a photoshop license at all. You could use the same script for MS paint.

            A photoshop plugin written today should probably be run in 32 bit mode if it's available for plugins via public api. Fourier transforms are generally implemented for floating point data type, so using 32 bit mode would reduce the number of conversions.

            Those are just my thoughts. I don't know how much work is required to implement a photoshop plugin, which may differ from a simple script (~50 lines including error and version checking).

              Hi,

              I developed freely available CS3-based Mac PS FFT/IFFT plugins a few years back as outlined here:
              http://www.retouchpro.com/forums/sof...lugin-mac.html

              Fabio Fata graciously developed a video tutorial on how to use it, available here:
              https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SUqsm9_iCbQ

              I have been asked to develop a 64-bit version of that plugin that works in newer versions of Photoshop. I'm not opposed to the effort. However, I see that over the years several solutions, including non-PS based, have appeared for a 64-bit FFT/IFFTs plugin. There is no point in doing this effort if there is no demand for it. So I'm just gauging interest in the 64-bit version of Photoshop CC FFT/IFFT plugins based on the older 32-bit plugins. If there is still demand for this plugin to be updated to 64-bits I can do the work.

              EDIT:

              FFT / IFFT plugins now available for general download. Please use the following link:

              http://djjoofa.com/download/fft_mac_ps_cc_2015

              I have also added a link to John Wheeler's technique for removing edge banding in Photoshop using 'content aware fill'.

              Sincerely,

              Joofa

                  Hi Joofa
                  I went to your website to get the FFT/IFFT plugins for my Mac but see that you have withdrawn them. The video showed that they worked well, so I'd be keen to obtain a copy if at all possible. Please let me know how.
                  Thanks

                    It appears Joofa vanished. He has not been responding to e-mail either, and I think we can consider his old mac plugins abandoned by now.

                    Anyway, good news, the Windows version of the old FFT plugins just got a major overhaul a few months ago, and now includes has actions that automate most of the process and helps achieve superior quality compared to the manual painting method that everyone has been doing previously.

                    A few days ago we got a new person signing up to make them Mac compatible, so it will very soon (a few weeks?) be updated to work on Mac OS as well!

                    It is now hosted over at ft.rognemedia.no
