  • HP tools 3 not available from Recipes in PSE1

    After installing HP tools 3, cannot now locate the original power tools (from book) or access the tools from recipes.

    Without uninstalling, and re-installing PSE1, HPtools, HP3 etc, is there a quick way ?

    There was a lot of renaming etc of index.htm files in the original installs, in various places.

    Thanks in advance for any ideas (epecially if they save time)

    There should not be anything that effects the previous installation in the new one. The installations go to separate areas, and I have installed numerous times on both platforms without having this occur.

    The problem may be that you renamed the wrong index.html file when installing the HPAIII package. The instructions suggest renaming a file so you can revert to the Adobe installation of the Welcome menu. You should be renaming the index.html file in the Welcome directory, NOT the one in the Recipes. If you rename the one in Recipes, that would do exactly what you describe.

    Let me know. Hope that helps.

      Thanks for the quick response. Without looking, you most probably correct. I am used to having access to the HPtools from the recipes pallette, which is normally on show in my workspace.

      I can access the new stuff from the welcome screen, but not the originals, eg curves

      I will go through the re-install of everything in the correct order and change my way of working, no problems.

      thanks again


      By the way, nice to see your 'mugshot' on your articles in 'Digital Photography Techniques'

        My wife called that shot "frightening" as she felt it did not capture my personality and made me look a little, well, deranged. I laughed and laughed. I have another i hope to be substituting which is a slight variation -- perhaps subtly suggestive of exposure issues and picasso -- which for some inexplicable reason my mother (known to be a realist) liked. The side of the face closer to the light was over-exposed so badly that the face is missing and the wire glasses frame hangs above an absent eye.

        I find it hard to take author photos very seriously...the first time I was asked for one I did an interpretive line-art sketch. The magazine promptly dropped my series and returned the materials.

          To be honest, it did look like one of the bad guys from one of the old Marvel comic. Cannot remember if it was the Hulk, Spiderman or Fantastic Four, but it was a long time ago. LOL

            Installation question HPPE
            by benchew
            I recently bought the book HPPE and I am getting ready to install the hidden tools. From looking at other posts on this forum I got a little nervous about going ahead. I am running PS2 on an iMac G4 and it has worked perfectly from day one. My questions are (1) Are there any files I should set aside,...

            What next, finally got to Welcome window?
            by jcarter11
            Need help, went thru the stuffing unstuffing issues with no luck, so had my PSE instructor send me a workable/installable file. Then we were able to get
            HPA3.sea installed on my Mac.

            Now have the new Wecome window, but when I click on anything, nothing

            OS X Actions Install Trouble
            by Richard_Lynch
            There seems to be a problem with installing Hidden Power Actions II on OS X. I believe the trouble is the version of Installer Maker i was using. I believe the problem was something to do with the version of carbonlib. I have replaced the installer for macs. If some people on OS X would test out the...

            Completely Lost!
            by 8wildhorses
            Well, I followed the installation instructions (I think - more on this later) opened Photoshop Elements 2 and started on the first lesson. Separated the colors, etc. then I came to the "Open Hidden Powers Tools". Where do I do this from? Where are the tools? I assumed they would...

            Using HPA3 with book tools?
            by dpnew

            I just installed the HPA3 tools, and I can't figure out how to get from the free tools to the tools that only come with the book. How do you find the menu for the book tools?
