Can't apply Plugin Galaxy

Hi there Harold

I downloaded Photo Galaxy plug-ins for Photoshop 5.5, and there's nowhere that I can see to actually apply the end result.

I have..lemmee see... About, Cancel, Help, Reset and that's all!

I've not had any problems with other plug-ins from your site.

Could you help please?

This topic has already been discussed here: ... .php?t=223

and here: ... .php?t=373

But to state it again:

The missing OK button in the Plugin Galaxy Demo is part of the demo limitations. Only the Zoom and PopArt plugins have an OK button, because they are free.

You can see how the final effects will looks like in the preview box when the zoom ratio is set to 1:1. To apply the effects to the image you need the full version which can be ordered at

The DOWNSIDE of the demo is that it's worthless if you can't properly evaluate it.

The preview window is far too tiny and I can't get a decent view of the result.

I wont bother investing in a filter where I can't see what it DOES. It's a waste of my time.

Well, you can see exactly in the preview at 100% zoom how the final effect will look like. I'm sorry if that is not enough for you to decide if the effects are of any use for you.

We are planning to change the demo limitation with the next update. You will then have OK buttons to apply the effect to the image, but some kind of pattern or watermark will be drawn on the image as a demo protection. This method is already used for the Macintosh Version of Plugin Galaxy which draws a pink grid over the image as a demo limitation.

I was searching the site here to find out why I had those grid lines you mentioned here. When I downloaded the Plugin I didn't see anything about it. I guess I knew it was a demo but thought there was a time limit on it. Guess there's "No such thing as a free lunch".
The filters look good though limiting but that's what various pluging are for. Thanks for the demo Harold - keep the creative juices flowing!
