    Virus / Spyware in plugins or actions
    by 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?
    by 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
    by GaryGornelli
    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
    by 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...

    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 .

    dianajenna: If you can't get it to work, double-check the folders, and try to remove any old dll-files or similar things you might have installed.
    I'll add this to the Ft plugins documentation.

    The actions require the filters (plugins) to be present.

    We have not tested with such an old version of Photoshop so there is the possibility that they are simply not compatible, or that some folders are in new locations.

    I will see if I can find an old CS5 installer and test.

    Edit: CS5 works.

    Diana,
    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.

    The Action did seem to work when I hit Play, but it stops on Filter and the message box pops up which says "The command Filter is not currently available." So I hit Continue and after all the action steps are done the end result is an image that looks like a negative and there is no mask with stars. The mask is simply all white. Oh well, I guess I'm just not able to access the FFT filter with CS5.

The only filters on the list are the normal default PS filters - nothing else. Btw, I also copied the same FtDH files into the Filters folder along with them also in the Plugins folder. I'm just grasping at straws here, because I can't figure what I did wrong.

    Diana,
    You have the correct Fourier transform software and installed correctly.

    Big question is PS CS5.

    We tested Cs6 through CC 2018 and they all give same output. I also tested Cs2 because granddaughters have it on old laptops. Cs2 did not work but don't remember much. I know I asked around about what programming would be relative to Cs6 and got no answers. I would speculate it would be a bunch as Cs6 was a big change.

    Chain did cs6 tests too but I doubt he has anything older.
    I think you should upgrade to some level of CC but don't know an inexpensive way . I've been trying put the Ft plugins into Github so they are available for some time

    Not the answer but the Pattern Suppression action makes it automatic almost. Please look at video of how to use it.

    dianajenna: There is no such thing as CS7. Please check again what version of Photoshop you have.

    It must be a 64-bit version of Photoshop, and make sure you installed both the filters and the dll for the correct version of Ps, then restart Photoshop.

    Diana,
    Did you also download and install the libfftw3-3.dll and install in the Photoshop files. Their filename is like Ft3DF.8bf or iFt3DF.8bf. They should show in RONC 2018 in the Filter menu. These plugins are not the same as the older ones. They work for one and they handle 8, 16, and 32 bit per channel data, They work only on an x64 not x32 systems with Photoshop x64. Please review these settings and come back with answers. Did you download the Pattern Suppression action? Does it show in the Action panel? If so will it run? What version of Photoshop?

    Wow, that looks really nice!

    You know, the one bad thing about the Pattern Suppressor is that I don't have any images I need to use it on myself... :-D

    Chain, I was able to download the files and get setup with out issue. I did use the same exact links. Perhaps it took a while for the files to propagate through the CDN or something.

    AMAZING tool! I find that using Camera Raw Luminance Noice reduction & Masked Sharpening helps smooth things out after the pattern suppression while maintaining needed sharpness in certain areas. Thank you and anyone else who contributed to this tool!
