Focal Blade in Elements on Intel Macs

Postby mfischer » Tue Jul 03, 2007 4:21 pm

I installed Focal Blade (latest version for Intel Macs) on an Intel iMac running OS X (all updates) for use with Elements 4.0. Focal Blade is not recognized by Elements and does not show up in the Filters list. I have moved the plug-in file from the default (Photoshop CS3) folder to the Elements plug-in folder, but this does not make any difference.

Is Focal Blade able to run under Elements Universal on the Intel Macs?

Photoshop Elements 4 is not an universal binary. It is a PowerPC application. So it is automatically runs under Rosetta on an Intel-Mac. As a result you need to use the PowerPC version of FocalBlade, because Elements does not support the Intel-Mac version of FocalBlade.

If you want an application that runs natively on an Intel-Mac and supports Photoshop plugins, you need to acquire Photoshop CS3. Then you can use the the CS3 Intel version of FocalBlade.
