Harald,

Thanks.

Actually, I bought these softwares--Colorwasher, Lightmachine, Focalblade, The Edge & Frame Galaxy CD-ROM, Plugin Galaxy from you the last 2 wks and I also queried you abt Edge & Frame software.

In the ColorWasher, old photo was mentioned but it cannot remove the old photgraph texture. But 2 hours ago, I had solved the problem using FFT & IFFT.

So I am wondering if you have any more software that can do this.

Cheers

Using FFT is probably the best solution for removing the texture. It is quite hard to automate such a task, so do not expect to find any plugins for such a task.

ColorWasher is only meant for color correction.

Harald,

Thanks for the confirmation.

BTW, I spent quite a lot of $$$ in your Company, is there any free complimentary software to give away? :P

Harald,

I am having difficulties installing the free HarryFilters.

How come I did not see it in my PhotoShop after installing it a few times.

TQ.

You need to enter the Photoshop plugins folder directly during installation. There is no Plugin Installer tool yet as it is the case with the PhotoWiz plugins.

Harald,

Yes, I went to C: & copied Harry Filters & paste it in the photoshop folders with the other PlugIns, then install again.

It works 100%. Thank you very much.

BTW, do you have PlugIns for applying various textures to photos.

Please advise. I like to buy one.

Thank you for your info.

I have one more question to ask if you don't mind.

1. You know what I did, I bought the Edges & Frames & down-loaded
on-line.

2. Then I decided to buy the CD-Rom of 1,600 Edges & Frames.

3. After all these, I managed to download your Free Edges & Frames.

The question is are ALL the edges & frames in Item 1 & Item 3 found in the 1,600 edges & frames of CD-Rom---Item2 ?

If they are, then I like to save space & take off item1 & item3 from my computer and leave only the Item2 in my computer.

Hope you understand my English.

Have a good day.

Harrys Edges (Item 3) are not part of the EFG CD. If I remember correctly Harrys Edges are in the seperate Goodies folder of the EFG CD, but not in the folder where the 1600 edges and frames are.

You can remove Item 1.

Harald,

Thanks for your advice.

Oh, I just received your other Goodies----ie 1,600 edges/frames in CD Rom format. I love it and it's good value for money.

I can handle the Frames/Edges/Jpeg/Bonus folders--no problem at all.

But there is another big folder of BMP images but I do not know how to make use of them.

Please tell me how to use BMP images. I am using PhotoShop.

Thanks and have a good weekend.

The EFG CD offers the same edges in JPG as well as BMP format. If you use the JPG files, you do not need to use the BMPs.
