I succesfully modified HDR Efex and Analog Efex to run in PSP,
but when add a filter in HDR and click save the filter is not applied to the image. It just creates a second layer with no filter...

Although HDR worked right after I changed the script, it now does what yours does..... creates a second layer with no change. I know that it does not work on less than 32 bit images (hence it doesn't work in PSE for Win) but that shouldn't be a problem for PSP X6. Even when it did work in PSP (ie, the first time I tried it) you could not combine images (as you can in other programs) but could apply HDR effects to one image. Not sure how to make it work....but we have the same problem.
Adverts for Corel products when you close PSP don't bother me.

I have PSP x5 and tried to follow the instructions to see if silver efex 2.o (the latest) pro works.I was able to follow the instructions up till it says you must edit? I was able to get to the screen with the (filtroExe = u'C:\\Program Files\\Google\\Nik Collection\\Color Efex Pro 4\\Color Efex Pro 4.exe') text but im not sure what i need to edit or do after this. I would appreciate your guidance,thanks in advance.

I'm having trouble also running the script (ver 2) in 5X SP3. I changed the version references to 15 from 16, Color EFx runs but the script errors when save is clicked. The error is : "line 100, in Do 'Version': ((15,0,0),1) JascApp.InvalidCommandName: Invalid or missing command name"

The file is going into the temp folder, so I'm guessing the failure is trying to get the image back into 6X.

So it's line 100 but I don't know the code. Hopefully someone will post a solution.

I'm on the fence about upgrading to version 6x for the 64bit. I'm updating my box to 64bit and was looking to use 6X as my editor because CS2 will not run properly in the new OS.

Sorry but I don't have X5... only X6.

But you can record a macro, edit it and compare the code it generates for:

Code: Select all
'GeneralSettings': {
                'ExecutionMode': App.Constants.ExecutionMode.Silent,
                'AutoActionMode': App.Constants.AutoActionMode.Match,
                'Version': ((16,0,0),1)
                }


And replace all ocurrences in the scripts.

I found that the line 'FileOpenAsNewLayer' is where the trouble is using the script in X5. I changed the script to read 'PasteAsNewLayer' the filter executes without errors and the image is in a new layer. Also all reference to 16.00 has to be changed to 15.00 as was stated by the author.
The only trouble now is it has no color in color effects.

My temporary work around is to use 'FileOpen' which renders in another window, select all, copy then in the original image "paste in new layer" then delete the other rendering. This works in Color eFex.

Any chance someone could share a similar script for Perfect Effects 8? It was given away this January for free for the full version. You can also get a Lite version for free with no restrictions.

I like it but it is standalone unless you have Photoshop/Lightroom/Aperture (not having an 8bf).

Hi,

I can't thank you enough for the scripts! They work well, but I have a different problem no one has reported here.

Every time I quit X6, the application would close with no immediate error flag. Then, 13 seconds later comes ...

I wrote to Nik about the incompatibility issues so many of us have experienced and got the following reply. Until I find a way to get rid of the error flag, I'll continue to use X3 as my primary editor.

Dear Jan,

Thank you for contacting Nik by Google. I hope you're having a great day.

Unfortunately the Nik Collection is no longer compatible with Corel Paintshop Pro. The current version of the Nik Collection is only compatible with Photoshop, Photoshop Elements, Lightroom and Aperture, for both Windows and Mac operating systems.

If you have any further questions, please reply to this email or visit support.google.com/nikcollection to call our Customer Service Department Monday through Friday 8:30 am to 5:00 pm PST.

Best Regards,
Billy

I joined this forum just to say thank you to JSJ. I had to change pathways to your script but it works great. I can now use Nik Color Efex Pro 4 in Paintshop Pro x6. It is really nice not to have to load Photoshop Elements 12 just to use the Color Efex. This has improved my work flow. Thanks.

Hello,
I was hoping to use Silver Effex with my X6 but when I wrote to Nik I got the same reply as someone else who wrote them. Is Silver Effex that good for B&W, I have never used it so I don't know? I really enjoy B&W and I have Topaz B&W but it doesn't give me all the control I would like which is why I was looking at Silver Effex.
Because of Nik's decision to limit the compatibility to Adobe products I was thinking about getting Lightroom. However, I don't like the way Adobe is forcing people to pay monthly to beef up their cashflow stream and I have decided not to support them by buying LR. For me at least, it seems I will have to make do without the Nik software until they decide not to limit it to just Adobe.

Tim
Regards
Tim

First, thanks to jsj for all you hard work on these scripts. They are working wonderfully on my system.

Does anyone know of a way to modify the scripts to support png rather than just jpg and tiff? There are occasions (albeit rare) where I would like to send a partially transparent image to ColorEfex and jpg and tiff don't support that.

Thoughts?
