Version 1.0 for MacOS X (August 24, 2007)

  • Two Versions:
    • PowerPC Version: Works with most applications (even in Rosetta mode on Intel-Macs)
    • Intel Version: Only works with Photoshop CS3 and CS4 on Intel-Macs
  • The MacOS X versions were created with Filter Foundry, which means some limitations compared to the Windows version:
    • The plugins only work with 8bit RGB images (and not 16bit RGB images)
    • There are no RGB2HSL and HSL2RGB plugins, because of the intensive calculations.
    • The Sepia plugin offers different controls and produces similar but not identical results. The Windows version uses the HSL color space to achieve the effects whereas the Mac version stays in RGB space.

 

Version 1.01 for Windows (June 2007)

  • New Chroma Negative plugin
  • Windows Vista Compatibility: PhotoFreebies now works under Vista even if your computer has 2 GB or more RAM.
