There is a white line on my image after using the gallery wrap feature

Posted on October 11, 2012

If you resize the image to an odd number in Photoshop using bicubic, Photoshop will make a row or column in the image at less than 100% opacity. This will cause the white line when using the gallery wrap feature.

To avoid this issue, please try rounding the dimension to the nearest even number and then use Perfect Resize.

The following instructions show how to access onOne Software from Adobe Photoshop Elements.

How to launch onOne Software products from Lightroom?

Posted on April 14, 2011

Perfect Layers can be accessed as a plug-in from inside of Adobe Photoshop Lightroom. You can find it in the File > Plug-In Extras menu.

  • If you select a single PSD file, the original file will be opened
  • If you select a single TIF, JPG or RAW file, a PSD copy with the Lightroom adjustments applied will be opened and will be stacked with the original image
  • If you select multiple files (PSD, TIF, JPG, RAW) PSD versions with Lightroom adjustments will be temporarily created and then merged into a new layered PSD file. The resulting file will be stacked with the first image in your Lightroom selection.
  • If an image is already open in Perfect Layers when you access it from the Lightroom plug-in you have the option of adding the selected images to the open image or closing the open image and creating a new one.

You will be able to control via a preference which bit depth and color space you prefer.

I am receiving an out of memory error

Posted on January 13, 2010

Below is a list of suggestions to help circumvent the memory errors

1.    Adjust PS Memory allocation to 75%

2.    Turn histories down to 4

3.    Close other applications, restart Photoshop

4.    Go straight to plug in

5.    Flatten the image to an 8bit

6.    Use early in workflow before upsizing

7.    If using a layered file, process only one layer

When the plug-in starts to process an image it will ask Photoshop for a single chunk of memory.  When memory gets fragmented this can prevent the plug-in from getting that single chunk of memory from Photoshop.  A restart of Photoshop can help clear up the fragmented memory.  You may want to do this if you’ve been heavily using Photoshop and then attempt to use the plug-in, especially on larger images, i.e. 80Mb or higher.
