LeviFiction,

This worked perfectly. Also, the Send and Close button was not visible, but your video on editing the screen took care of that problem.

I filed a ticket with Customer Support last August and after 6 weeks of exchanged emails, it still didn't work. So needless to say, I'm more than impressed with your fix.

Many thanks.
LindaLB

Actually have found a cheat solution. Get the effect you want but confirm never arrives so take a snip and save as jpg.
Did not think would run on mine as have 1 yr old Leader (Australian company) with Windows 7 Professionally installed.
Attachment is Slumber effect.

What do you mean "Confirm never arrives"? Sounds like a separate problem from the others mentioned so far. Just so you know, the image that you see is actually saved to your harddrive so you could probably get a better result if you just imported that image instead of doing a screenshot.

However, because they do scale it down for the preview it still won't be as good as full sized.

Preview image is saved here: C:\Users\YourUserName\AppData\Local\Temp\PicToPainting\input\preview.png

@LeviFiction,

Thank you, the Tensorflow folder update fixed the problem. Rhetorical question - why hasn't Corel fixed this?

Unnecessary response to rhetorical question: *shrug* I dunno. xD

I can probably assume that they have a very good reason for using the version of tensorflow that they do. It does support newer cpu commands that older versions of tensorflow do not. And using this older version may get the plugin working but might have unforeseen drawbacks. It's hard to say really. The idea for going back to an older version of tensorflow came from stack-overflow questions that mentioned the same error LindaLB and iraisok reported. And that recommendation was to go back to version 1.6 not 1.5. We found out 1.5 worked for iraisok and not 1.6 by trying several versions of tensorflow with including the far newer 1.12. Only version 1.5 worked. No idea why.

Technically, if they didn't mind slowing things down, they could use tensorflow.js and avoid all of this nonsense. The software they use to present the UI is called Electron and it uses javascript (node.js) and HTML(chromium) to run the application. They would need to convert their trained models to the open format that tensorflow.js uses. But they wouldn't have to use separate compiled python programs to get the job done. Just do it all inside electron using javascript.

I upgraded to PSP 2019 today and downloaded the Pic2Pinting plugin. I'm having the same issue the others posted about - P2P hangs when sending to PSP or even trying to preview.

Any help?

Have you tried the Tensorflow fix that is mentioned throughout this thread?

I am running Win 10, Corel PSP 2019, installed the PicToPaining, used the feature, liked the results, but there was no button to send the finnished shot to PSP. The window showed the three steps to transform a photo, but no send button.

Read through the whole of this thread and I think your problem is answered on teh page 2 about halfway down - use the Tab key to get to the hidden confirm and send. Or Levifiction has suggested a way of changing the interface to make it fit smaller screens.

Hello All,

To the user who still encountered the image loading issue on Pic-to-Painting program.

I'm glad to inform a new Pic-to-Painting version (v1.1) was updated on Welcome tab of PSP2019 now. Please uninstall existed Pic-to-Painting at first then go to download and install the new version. Here is the change of this version:

1. Increase the system compatibility support with the low-end machine. This change can get better support for image loading case.
2. Overall performance was enhanced.
3. Introduce new control behavior of "Paint Style".

PS: Please noted the minimum resolution support for Pic-to-Painting is 1680x1050. If your system resolution is lower than that then an unexpected UI problem may occur.

We hope this new version can help you to enjoy Pic-to-Painting plugin again. 8)

Thanks Josephine and Corel. I look forward for Levi to report result.

I assume I could rename the current PictoPaintimg folder, then install ver 1.1 from the Welcome section. If I experience problems, return to the original version?

Why would I report? I don't have the issues you and others did, so I wouldn't be able to tell you anything. I do like the new cacheing method they are using. Given time it'll just auto-generate all of the previews for you, so you can just hit the "Preview style" button and it'll pop up almost immediately. Though I'm not seeing new paint styles. Not sure what's up with that.

The software is installed in the new location, the Program Files folder instead of Program Files (x86). The important part will be the plugin file in the Corel PSP folder as it'll point to the new install.

If you're concerned that the new one won't work (which, hopefully it should), then I would recommend backing up the Pic to painting folder and the plugin file and then doing an uninstall.

The plugin file is located here:

C:\Program Files\Corel\Corel PaintShop Pro 2019 (64-bit)\PlugIns\EN\PicToPaintingPlugin_x64.8bf

and if you have PSP 32 bit installed

C:\Program Files (x86)\Corel\Corel PaintShop Pro 2019\PlugIns\EN\PicToPaintingPlugin_Win32.8bf

Then uninstall it. Just to be safe.

Levi,

I, of course, worked with you and thanked you for discovering a wonderful work around. I was simply thinking that you would be curious to try it, if for no other reason but for the additional features or whatever was added. I generally stick with what works, too. However, your response provided a good method to try new and be able able to get back to my working ver 1 that you so kindly helped MAKE WORK. Accept my looking to you as a complement.

Thanks again,
Ira

I have Paintshop Pro 2018 Ultimate which has PicToPainting. My tower system runs 64 bit Windows 10. It has 6GB of Ram with tons of disk space. Every time I try to use PicToPaint the program it continues to run trying to complete its task, yet to no avail. I have let it run for up to ½ hour and still no results. Any suggestions would be helpful
