This version starts the strength at zero, and reset changes the strength back to zero so at least the button looks like it's doing something.

I also fixed a few small bugs with the send and close command. It will now do nothing if the preset image isn't available for sending back. And will only create the blended version if the blended version doesn't already exist.

Levi,

Wonderful! The only very minor [don't care] quirk is if all you do when entering PTP is press Send and Close, you need to click Send and Close a 2nd time for it execute. I believe same is true if you had pressed only Reset then Send and Close. But, normally, you will have loaded a Painting. If so, 1st click of Send and Close and you return to PSP Editor. Looking at the PTP folders. Everything is cleared out.

It's simply fantastic now. I felt it safe to delete updates 1 and 2. Running with update 3.

We are alike in some ways. Always finding ways to improve s/w.

Thanks much,
Ira

Downloading tensorflow15 did the trick. Seems strange to have to do all these "tricks" with an out-of-the-box software. Does Corel seem to think it works out-of-the-box? Don't they test?

They do test, and then put a list of compatible hardware and minimum requirements.

The fact that we can make it work on machines they didn't intend, is just an unexpected boon for us.

So I did a test and set everything to default and gave it a try. It worked. I also discovered, by watching the output folder in my temp space, all the intermediate files created. Some are really interesting. I presume they represent the different strength levels.

For anyone interested, I found an application which is about the same. Search for fotosketcher in your favourite search engine. It is from fotosketcher dot com. It has interesting results.... and it is gratis $0.0 but you can donate.
