I don't have an answer for your particular problem (I haven't experienced this myself with these plug-ins under Photoshop, even on older Mac hardware), but when you say "I've written to Flaming Pear but received no response", THAT I have experienced!

In case you're wondering why no Flaming Pear plug-ins appear on my website directory or in the ezine, that is why. The developer simply does not reply to repeated emails, even over the few years that I've tried! It almost seems he doesn't care to promote (or support) his products.

It's a shame, because these are great plug-ins, but many others have also complained of support issues with the developer himself (do a Google search). I personally can't understand why anyone (whether your grandmother or a software developer) can't or won't reply to an email, whether from the supportive press or a customer with difficulties. It's basic courtesy, not to mention good business.

I know Flaming Pear plug-ins get updated every now and then, so the lights are on, but maybe no one's home ;-).

Harald is the only one I know who has actually gotten through to the developer to the point of having a conversation, but I'm not sure how long it's been since his last contact.

a related thread from this forum from 2005. Same problems with lack of response from Flaming Pear, except to lawyers, and even then not satisfactorily.

So anyway, try using the plug-ins under another host and see if PSE is the problem.

Thanks for the reply. I did see some talk about lack of response from Flaming Pear ... and I agree, it's a crummy way to run a business.

BTW, I just went to plugsandpixels last night--I'm so excited to have found these two sites! I'm gonna be a pluggin' fool! :lol:

"pluggin' fool"! That's a great title!

Enjoy these resources. There's a lot of great imaging software to explore.

The reason WHY they are freezing up on you is this..

"you have to" ..upgrade your video card..that is your problem..after upgrading the plugins will never freeze nor will PSP again.....I had to do it myself................................Wolfie

Thanks for the tip, Wolfie ... I'm not sure it's the video card, though. I'm still using the same Mac with a new video card, etc., but since my original post, I switched to using CS3 for the Mac (rather than PSE in Windows on the Mac or on a PC) and the Flaming Pear plug-ins work fine. So, I think it's something about Windows ... because the video card I'm using is the same.
