    Virus / Spyware in plugins or actions
    visnew
    Hi:

    I'm not sure if I'm posting in the right place, but since the previous "Virus" thread was posted here, I thought it was best not to change.

    In the original thread, Gary warned us not to download stuff from unknown or dangerous sites. However, I'm wondering...

    Is it worthwhile to sell actions?
    Rydiant
    I've developed a series of actions that produce effects like some commercial plugins. Because the quality of output compares well (and in some ways surpasses what's already out there,) I think users would be willing to pay for the actions at a fraction of the cost of a plugin alternative.

    Actions

    Hi, I was discussing brushing up work to show clients the results at shoots and was told that some photographers run a few actions. Curves, smoothing/sharpening etc. Do any of you? What are they?

    strange behavior
    Sanda
    After a recent hard drive crash and replacement I had to reinstall Photoshop 6. I've reinstalled all of my plugins and actions ect. All seemed to be working fine but today I needed to use an action for the first time since the reinstall and to my amazement discovered that my actions pallet won't...

    It works fine on Photoshop CS5 running on Windows 10. I tested a non-english language as well.
    • Move dll-file here: C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Photoshop CS5 (64 Bit)\
    • Move plugin-files here: C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Photoshop CS5 (64 Bit)\Plug-ins\Filters\
    • (Re)start Photoshop.
    • Load actions.

        I'll add this to the Ft plugins documentation.

          Well, I did exactly what you outlined above and it still does not work. The only filters in my Photoshop CS5 list are the Photoshop default filters...nothing else. So I try the Action (which IS available) but it stops partway through and I get the message "The command "Filter" is not currently available."

          In CS5 in Edit > Preferences > Plug-Ins there is the option Additional Plug-Ins Folder. So I checked that box and made new folders called Additional Plug-Ins > Filters and moved the 6 plug-in files there and made sure I had these new folders pointed to the correct path. That all didn't work any differently.

          Just to make sure the file names are correct, are these are the 6 plug-in files?: Ft3DH, Ft2DS, Ft2DH, iFt3DH, iFt2DS, iFt2DH
          These are the ones that downloaded to my computer but are nowhere to be found in Photoshop. The dll file is named libfftwx64_3-3.dll

          Since I downloaded from your link they should be correct, but I absolutely cannot figure out why the filters aren't recognized in my CS5. Ugh.

            Did you verify that you are executing the 64 bit version of Photoshop? Don't you have two versions like I mentioned before ? You can have plugins in the correct location but Photoshop x32 won't see them. Are you executing from a shortcut? In Windows Explorer, find the shortcut and do properties. See where the Photoshop. exe is located? Should be in the program files (64 bit) folder or in Photoshop do about and see what it says. I remember more than a bunch of times I had this problem .

              That's what the problem was. I was opening PS with a shortcut and it opened 32 instead of 64. It works now. Thank you!!!!!

                My Adobe Photoshop program file in Drive C was labeled 64 Bit, so I mistakenly thought I was actually in the 64 Bit version, but finally checking About showed me I wasn't.

                  Glad it is working now. Enjoy what the Action does with little help. Send up an example of what it does if you have time.

                    That's good news that the action runs but it can't find the Ft plugins.
                    Would you look in Filter/RONC 2018/ for Ft3DH or Ft2DH. Please. Also look at Help/Plugins/ for them also. And look at Help/System Info also . You might have wrong place for plugins. There were large changes from cs5 to cs6. More to cc. Adobe has changed the plugin locations recently .
                    Let me know what you find in those three places.

                    Do you have both 32x and 64x versions of Photoshop installed? The 32x is in a folder C:/Program Files(x86)/Adobe/Photoshop CS5/ whereas the x64 is in C:/Program Files/Adobe/Photoshop CS5/. Are you sure that you are looking and executing the x64? Plugins for x64 belong in C:/Program Files/Adobe/Photoshop CS5/Plug-ins/Filters but you must execute the x64 to see them.

                    We might find a way for you to use the plugins and action.

                    Hi RONC, I have exactly the same issue: "The command Filter is not currently available." appears while I'm applying the actions. Actions work and the results look like negative image for one half of the photo. I have copied the plugins to the Plug-ins folder of the photoshop directory in Applications. I'm using Photoshop CC 2015.1.2 release on MacOS 10.12.6. I think it's the same issue that the computer is not recognizing the plugins because in the menu of Photoshop I don't see Filter/RONC 2018. Other successfully recognized plugins are appearing there. Could you have a look at this issue? Thank you very much!

                      Did you download the Mac or the Windows version? Are the plugins' extension's Plugin or 8bf? If the latter, redownload but get the Mac version instead. This is where you should place and see the plugins on Mac: Check here to see for sure where to install and to get the Mac version: https://www.retouchpro.com/forum/too...ern-suppressor File you need to get is Pattern Suppressor v2.5.zip.

                      Please let us know how you resolve this and upload an example of your work with it.

                        Hi RONC, I downloaded a zip file from your website (I actually found the plugin via the link you replied) and by extracting the zip file, I got both the Mac version and Windows version in different folders. I copied the plugin files from the Mac folder, they have the .plugin extensions. For windows version, they have different extensions (.8bf), so I'm sure I copied the right version. The zip file's name is Pattern Suppressor v2.5.zip, so I think it's the right 2.5 version. Any other thoughts?

                          I've asked Chain to help as the files are what he loaded to his website. He also did the Mac testing. I don't have access to a Mac and wouldn't know what to do on it anyway.
                          Hopefully he will see my email quickly . I'll keep an eye out
                          Hang in there,
                          RONC

                          On photoshop, go to Help>System info and look at or near the bottom of the page and see if you see the six plugins listed. If they don't show, they are in wrong place.

                            Hi RONC, thanks for your quick reply! I checked "Help > System info" and I didn't see the six plugins - I think that's the same reason why they are not recognized. However, I think they are in the right place because it's the same place described in your website, plus, I have other third-party plugins in the same place which are recognized by Photoshop, are listed under Filter menu and can be used without issue (they are also listed in System info). So I wonder if there is problem of compatibility.

                              Each version of Photoshop has a separate plugins-folder. So it could be you have them in a plugin-folder belonging to a newer/older version than the version of Ps you are actually running.
                              Also note that you need to restart Photoshop after installing the plugins (Photoshop detects plugins only on startup).

                              If the manual copying isn't working out, you could try the automated install (it copies the files for you) by installing it from the Adobe Exchange: https://www.adobeexchange.com/creati...ls.100742.html

                              Regarding compatibility, on Windows we have tested that they work at least back to CS5 without any issue.
                              On Mac I have only tested back to CC2017 on OS X 10.12, but I think it is safe to assume it will run just fine on CC2015.

                                Hi Chain, thanks for your reply! I have installed only one version on the computer so the folder should be the same as what other plugins stay, plus, I recently installed a third-party plugin by copying in the folder and it worked, so the place should be correct. I have also restarted Photoshop for several times, but the results were the same. I have the feeling that it's a problem of compatibility. It's a pity that this wonderful plugin doesn't work for me.
