This one works fine Jean Luc, thanks!

Is that a special version? I mean the included Readme file points to the link Levi suggested initially, where the latest version listed is v1.2.0. It is the 8bf one I tested and it was giving the memory error when hitting the OK button (it was working fine while inside its preview window tho).

Your last link works fine for me, is it a previous version? v1.2.0 adds 2 entries in the Effects menu: G'MIC Qt and G'MIC Qt Input & Output settings... yours adds just the 1st. So I guess it is v1.1.3 or even an older one. Main thing is it is working :) I just thought it would be good to know which is the latest version that plays well with PSP, and if you know it it can save me some trial & error :)

Ok, did the trial & error procedure... latest GMIC Ps Plugin version that plays well with my PSP 2021x64 is v1.0.2
File sizes are identical to the last one posted by Jean Luc! Thanks!

PS. Levi, I'm still interested in case you manage to make the standalone version work with the NIK script.

As Jean-Luc has just shown, the plugin I downloaded from his link is v.2.9.4, and does work in PSP 2019 which is my preferred version. I didn't put it in the Corel Plugins folder but in a separate folder I have for plugins on a drive other than C.

So, @migf1, I am curious as to how you are showing an early version like 1.0.2.

Hi Joe, follow the link I gave in my previous post (which is the same Levi gave earlier in the thread) and scroll down to see all versions of the Ps plugin.

G'MIC itself is v2.9.4, but its Ps compatible plugin seems to have its own versions. v1.2.0 is the latest listed there, but the most recent version in that list that seems to work with PSP is v1.0.2 (the G'MIC core is still v2.9.4 in all of them).

Thank you Jean-Luc for all your patience!!...

Yes, I successfully now have G'mic on my 64 bit version...now I get to play.... :D ....

Patara, thanks for all the suggestions for Simple Filters & Filters Unlimited....yes I have them both but never realized that they would work together...as I normally use the 32 bit version I will definitely try & get that sorted....

Happy New Year Everyone...

FlutteringBy, on the page pointed to by the link I posted, all versions of the plugin come with a 32bit variant too. So if PSP 32-bit is your main tool of choice, it may worth it to give the 32bit plugin a try too... in my findings, v1.0.2 of the plugin is the most recent one that plays well with PSPx64, so you may want to start your tests from its 32bit variant.

PS. Btw, I opened an issue ticket, and the author responded already: https://github.com/0xC0000054/gmic-8bf/issues/5

Happy New Year everyone!

Here is the direct link: https://github.com/0xC0000054/gmic-8bf/ ... tag/v1.0.2

You may have to expand the Assets section by clicking on the little dark arrow next to its name. The 32bit variant is the x86 one.

PS. I'm also very happy that I can use G'MIC directly from within PSP (I didn't know about the Ps compatible plugin).

Many thanks migf1,
I now have the 32 bit version but it is not a complete installation....

I remember when I was installing the 64 bit version, I had a problem with the zipped .exe file not installing properly, I ended up having to download an installer rather than .zip & then the 64bit installed as it should..

When I try to install the 32 bit zip file the .exe gives me this:

gmic.jpg
When I click on g'mc-qt I get "Create process failed"...

When I click on Input/Output Settings I get a separate window like this:

Hello Flutetringby,

version 1.0.2 of the plugin should NOT create the "Input/Output Settings for G'MIC QT" entry in your menu. This was added in later versions of the plugin, which according to my tests (on Windows 8.1 x64) do NOT play well with Paintshop Pro. You probably did NOT download the version 1.0.2 I linked to.

However, the author has just released version 1.2.1 of the plugin, noting that the PSP incompatibility I mentioned to them in their Issues page has been fixed now.

I just did a quick test with the x64 variant of that latest version 1.2.1 and it now indeed seems to work well with PSP (I only tested just a couple of Artistic effects). Note that this latest version does add the 2nd entry "Input/Output Settings for G'MIC QT" in PSP's menu. According to the plugin's Releases history, that 2nd menu entry was added in version 1.2.0... it is there because some G'MIC filters need 2 source images to do their magic (I have no idea which ones tho).

As for installing the plugin, it is just a plain zip file, not an executable exe file (actually there are no executable installers available on the plugin's page). Just d/l the version you want from the plugin's page, and unpack it inside one of the folders you use to keep your PSP plugins (which should be different for PSPx32 and PSPx64).

I have been following this thread since you posted this answer. My new question (given that the core v2.9.4 is what I downloaded, installed and works) is whether there is any advantage to having the Photoshop versions of the plugins (the v.1.2.0 or variants) rather than just the v.2.9.4 core that I have in my Plugins folder and seems to work. TIA.

Hi Joe, I'm not sure what you are using. If it shows as a plugin inside PSP, then most probably it is one of the versions listed on the Ps compatible plugin page (moreover, if it is working and you haven't gotten the latest v1.2.1 from there, then most probably it is version 1.0.2). The differences among different versions of the plugin are listed on the Releases page.

@FlatteringBy, I'm glad the 32-bit version works too (and a good thing to know :) )

OK, here's the confusion. I didn't download an 8bf plugin. I downloaded this file: gmic_2.9.4_gimp2.10_win64.zip (gnic for gimp). I unzipped it and placed the unzipped folder into my Plugins folder. It contains one executable (gmic_8bf_qt.exe) and 34 dll files. There is no 8bf file. Yet it shows up in my PSP Filters menu (see attached image). So there must be an 8bf folder hidden in there somewhere I would think or it shouldn't show up as a filter.

On the other hand, downloading the actual plugin zip file v.1.2.1 contains the same folder with the same files as above but includes the 8bf file which is outside of the folder containing all of the other files. So I guess I'm wondering (a) how does the original stuff I downloaded show up as a filter when I can't find an 8bf file in the structure, and (b) is the 8bf file that comes with my v.1.2.1 download actually necessary.
