FocalBlade and Photoshop CS

Postby jtague » Fri Oct 31, 2003 7:01 pm

Hello -

Will be upgrading to CS from 7 as soon as my copy arrives and I am impressed with FocalBlade but have not yet ordered due to a couple of concerns.

I realize I'm asking in a potentially biased group but...

1. Does CS offer any of the functionality/ease of use vs. FocalBlade - i.e., will I still need FocalBlade with CS?

2. Will the current version work with CS without an update?

I'd also love to hear anyone's thoughts on ColorWasher and CS.

I'd appreciate hearing from anyone who has used CS or can provide some insight. Thanks in advance for your help.

Jim

The Unsharpen Mask filter hasn't changed from Photoshop 7 to CS, so FocalBlade is still as releveant as before.


2. Will the current version work with CS without an update?


Yes, it works. The only problems is that the preview isn't shown correctly when applying FocalBlade on 16bit layers in CS, because Photoshop 7 didn't support any 16bit layers. Most people apply FocalBlade on 8bit images withut layers, so most people won't even recognize this problem.

I'll release Version 1.01 of FocalBlade tomorrow. I will try to fix that problem. If I didn't manage to do that it there will be 1.01b update soon which will fix it.

Well, there is no problem with ColorWasher in CS as far as I know. Photoshop CS also doesn't have any new color correction stuff added (apart from the RAW plugin which is a different story).

Hi Harald -

I went ahead and ordered FocalBlade to start - just waiting for my email with instructions on where to download.

Thanks for your quick reply - your product looks fantastic!

Jim, you should have received your download instructions by now.

By the way, in Version 1.01 I already fixed the problem with Photoshop CS which I mentioned above.

FocalBlade works on 16bit images since it was first released. For using FocalBlade on 16bit images in Photoshop CS, you need at least Version 1.01 of FocalBlade.
