BW Styler in PSP v. X
Posted: Wed Oct 04, 2006 6:28 am
Can you confirm that BW Styler only runs on an 8 bit RGB image in PSP v. X please.
I've tried with 16 bit RGB, but no luck (.tiff format) but it works with 8 bit (tiff format).
Looks promising, but I want to use it in 16 bit mode.

Sorry, but PSP X doesn't support running plugins on 16bit images. It doesn't have anything to do with B/W Styler. Corel added this unnecessary limitation to PSP X.
I haven't tested PSP XI yet, but I hope that it now lets you run plugins on 16bit images. If anyone knows, please let me know.
Otherwise I can only recommed that you get Photoshop Elements or Photoshop.
Thanks for the response.

I downloaded the demo of Elements 4, it works with 16 bit images in version 4, but I was reading today a comparison of ver. 5 vs Photoshop, and v. 5 will not edit 16 bit images. So for some, sticking with v. 4 may be valuable.
I've not tried PSP XI with B/W Styler. Thinking about biting the bullet and getting the full blown Photoshop CS2. Like what I see of your product, too bad it couldn't work with a time period vs the watermark - makes it harder to assess as the watermarks are so numerous.

From the description of Elements 5 it says "Get truer, higher quality results with support for 16-bit color." Can you please send me the URL of that comparison?
The next version of Photoshop will become available next year, so if you can still wait a few months, you can save the upgrade fee.
I will rework the watermark protection in the near future, but I don't like time-limited trial versions. They more or less force you to buy the software after one month and give you no chance to evaluate the software again later.
