How can I develop a pure Bitmap filter Plugin?

Postby KlausP » Thu Jan 15, 2004 12:10 pm

Hi,

I want to develop a pure Bitmap filter Plugin. I am able to enabled the BitmapPlugin with the PIPL-parameter "SupportedModes" and "EnableInfo".
But when calling the filter, Adobe Photoshop notifies:
"Could not use BitmapFilter command, because the filtermodul is not working with single channel images."

Any idea?

Is there anyone, who has developed a pure Bitmap filter Plugin?

I can only recommend that you post such a request on the Adobe SDK mailing list. You can subscribe to it on the Adobe Web site.

I believe Filter plugins can only work on 8 bit channels, therefore they cannot be used on a Bitmap mode image.

One workaround might be converting to Grey Scale mode before filtering; or, depending on what you are doing, perhaps an Export plugin can help?
