I came across a new tool being developed by some fellows in Russia. It's called AliveColor. It's still in Beta testing but I downloaded a copy and I've been trying it out. It's very nice. I wrote them and they informed me that they hope to develop it as a Photoshop7 plug in the near furture. It has some features like replace color that is easier to use than the one in PA7,and they have an interesting tool called Matrix (not to be confused with the movie). I would be interested to know if anybody else has downloaded it ( what their impressions of it are. It is a stand alone program at the moment, but I think it will be a very usefull plug in for Photoshop. I'd like to hear from you

I've just tried to access that site, and it seems to have been removed. Even doing a search on both & aren't bringing anything up. Thoughts??

Best Regards

Don't know what happened to them. One day they were there and the next they were gone!!!! I even e-mailed the guy but got no response. I had been using the demo and was interested in buying, and then they disappeared. Go figure!

Last night I downloaded from Please note the final s
But it didnt't work. I installed it in Program Files, copied the 8bf file into plugin folder, no success. I have Win XP, I shall try with Win 98 again.
By the way, this plugin seems tempting for me, but I already have large filters. How much can a Photoshop plugin folder carry? (without replacing it in Preferences)
What did I wrong in installation?

I see where they are up and running again. I had used up my demo time and got no response when I queried them to buy. They have changed their site a bit. They had used a quote by me that I like the program. I did. I'll try downloading it again and see what I get. I have been running Windows XP and put the program in my program files, in the Adobe Folder.

it was interesting to learn your opinions on AliveColors. I see that you encounted some bugs in the beta-version of the plug-in, and i'm happy to inform you that we have upgraded the program, now the version std 1.1.0 is available for download at

We have added some new features and fixed the bugs. Besides new examples of effect application have been added to the official web-site, so that one can learn how to master the program or get an idea what to apply to your photos.

Anyway, i'll appreciate your remarks, impressions, bug reports.

Have a good day,

I tryed with Windows 98 the new versions
First day, the stadalone did not work at all, but the plug DID ! They were installed in the same folder. So, the Help folder was borrowed from standalone to the plug, but only text.
Today, unistall and reinstall. Victory : Help files had nice pictures inside. Standalone did not work again "this program....illegal ...will be shut down".
At the next work session after lunchtime, the plug preview window showed a stripped B/W version of the open picture, and that was all.
Sorry to tell you this.
This week I shall try in the office with a Pentium III with XP. But no filter crashed till now on my home (little) computer.
