LightMachine problems with Mac Version

I am trying out the LightMachine demo on my 17" G4 iMac. I use Photoshop Elements 4 and am having two problems:

1. Occasionally LightMachine makes my "Enhance" menu disappear from Photoshop Elements. The only way I can get it back is to quit and restart.

2. I've had it cause Elements to quit on me twice.

I know this is not much to go on.

Thanks for letting me know. I will see what I can do and add fixes for the problems with the next update.

I was attempting to create some LightMachine examples last night in Mac OS-X/Photoshop CS2 and no matter what settings or presets I chose, the preview did not show any change--whether in full or split mode.

It was late so I did not pursue it further, but I intend to soon.

Sounds like the Auto Preview check box in the bottom left corner is deactivated. Please activate it.

Hi Harald,

All seems well tonight. I did have Auto Preview checked earlier; I'm not sure what I missed.

Never mind! ;-)

While preparing the LightMachine example for my Plugs 'N Pixels calendar I was having some trouble with the spot light not behaving as expected (moving the existing light resulted in it going dark, even when viewed in mask mode). I eventually got it working after resetting a few times and trying again.

Replace color worked better, though it took a few tries.

I'd successfully created examples using these same effects in the past, so obviously I need to spend more time with LM! ;-)
