Anyone else on WGT in Leipzig?
I suppose we arrive today, tomorrow we start our little holiday then.
From a few fellow mates i know they´ll be there, but if anyone likes to meet me and ~Camy-katze
just note me.
For all others: until wednesday we are away, hopefully we will manage to make some photos for the scrapbook
Photoshop tipps or how to incorporate cs4 Filters in PS 7- don´t try this at home!!
Yesterday i was on the edge to reinstall my loved PS version 7, sometimes the OS makes silly things that makes it impossible to start a tool without errors.
From my expired cs4 testversion, that i was going to delete (as it tends to interferes with other versions even when not in use!) i tried to include the filtergallery from CS4 in PS 7 - it works!
From CS4 i copied the smart blur / smart -sharpen filters into PS 7 -works, a lot of ICC-profiles which are useful, and the liquify filter from CS4 works in PS 7 as also the patternmaker.
If you will try that at home, note that some .DLL´s need to be copied in the PS -directory- Photoshop will tell you at start-up which dll´s it will need
just write the names down, copy ´em and you are done.
I also had trouble with presets and admin -rights, least PS7 don´t started because of the lack of some user data!!
Please note, before you reinstall any Photoshop version because of errors, lack of userdata, etc. - at startup (even those that won´t start PS at all) Try to start Photoshop with -rightclick-> run as... admin (including your keyword)
No problem to use this as a holistic solution ->in Windows its no problem to create a batch-file linking to the .exe -file saying it that it should start as admin - including saving the keyword, after doing a shortcut to the batchfile - a click on the shortcut runs PS 7 - quicker (and including all presets) like ever before- (google for batch / runas commands)
If anyone can give me a hint now to make a wonderful working Photoshop 7 with useful CS4 filters to be portable- or to run multiple instances, i´d feel like in paradise.
Btw. i always liked to have the rotate canvas function from cs4, but i found a way to incorporate that into my workflow, by creating an ation linked with (for example) F3 that rotates by 90 degree, it helps by painting on not so large files with not so much layers.
Sure that isn´t comfortable like having an OpeGL - machine doing a very 3d-relying (and not reliable) solution doing the job degree wise, but at least it works!
Maybe this infos may help someone.
This saved me a reinstall and it works even faster now!
It will take a while until i switch to CS4+, maybe someday when i get my 16core mac and the 64bit verion of CS is out and not in beta-mode anymore, maybe then CS will be as quick and stable like PS 7 is now on a simple dualcore PC with 3 GHz
