Filter just won't appear

Filter just won't appear

I have been battling this issue for over a year now. Each time I need a filter & try to get it installed It just won’t appear in the filters list. For years I have been using one of a couple of filters called “Eliminate White” or “Kill White” to strip out the white background giving me gradients in Alpha. I can’t say enough about how nice having that ability is. In Photoshop 5.1 in the 5.5 Web Suite I can’t get one to work.

I have been using that trick in the “Blend If:” box in the “Layer Style” popup where you <alt-click> on the right slider for “This layer” and move the left half to the left. This works for me about half the time depending on the subject matter.

In both the 32bit and the 64bit versions, is there a trick to making these filters show up in the menu? I have done this many times with older versions of PhotoShop.

Thank you.

If I remember correctly, these two plugins of the FilterFactory-type. So you can only use them in the 64-bit version of Photoshop via .

You also need to switch off Data Execution Protection (DEP) to make them run. Alternatively open them in FilterMeister.

You may be missing the msvcrt10.dll
I had that problem a few years back. Make sure it is in your photoshop folder and in the windows /system 32 folder

Hope that helps. I use the eliminate white and the eliminate black CONSTANTLY

Below is a URL I found that gives a link to download the .dll
I can't vouch for it's legitimacy, but it looks like a "clean" place to me ... te-plugin/
