General Questions

Q: What is a Photoshop extension?
A: The term "extension" means the application that extends the capabilities of the host application (host). In our case, the host is Adobe® Photoshop® CS5 and higher, which is a part of Adobe® Creative Suite® and this is why it is called Photoshop extension.
Q: What is a Photoshop plugin?
A: The term plugin (or plug-in) means an additional program, which works under another program (host) and enhances the host's capabilities. Sometimes the plug-in is called an add-on.
Photoshop plugin (or Photoshop plug-in) is the most commonly used definition for a filter plug-in (8bf) for Adobe Photoshop and compatible hosts such as Adobe Photoshop Elements, Adobe Image Ready, Adobe Fireworks (formerly Macromedia Fireworks), Corel Paint Shop Pro, Corel Photo-Paint, Ulead PhotoImpact, etc. Sometimes Photoshop plugin is also called a Photoshop filter.
Q: What is a Photoshop script?
A: A script is a computer language, which is used for manipulating the parameters and functions of the host. In our case, the hosts are ONLY Adobe Photoshop CS and higher. Neither earlier versions of Adobe Photoshop, nor other hosts are supported.

Order Related Questions

Q: Can I pay using PayPal?
A: Yes, you can use PayPal. Cleverbridge AG (our primary e-commerce provider) accepts this method of payment.
Q: I've recently switched to another platform (Windows to Mac OS X or vice versa). Do I need to pay the full price for your Photoshop plug-ins for the new platform now?
A: No, you don't need to pay the FULL price! We offer the "platform-grade" for the special price that is ONLY 20% of the particular plug-in's regular price. Please send us the appropriate Support Request and we will provide you with the special link to order the desired product.
Q: I am a registered user of the Windows versions of your old Photoshop plugins (AV Bros. Page Curl 1.2 and AV Bros. Puzzle Pro 1.2). I have decided to obtain the recent versions of these filters, but for Mac OS X. Do I have to purchase the full version of AV Bros. Page Curl 2.0 (or PRO 2.2) and AV Bros. Puzzle Pro 3.1 or may I purchase the upgrade?
A: You may purchase the upgrade.
Q: Can I purchase the boxed version of your Photoshop extensions and Photoshop plugins?
A: No, you cannot. All of our products are only downloadable, but we offer the high-quality backup CD* that you can order along with our Photoshop plug-ins. Please be aware that we DO NOT offer the Backup CD with our Photoshop extensions**!

* The main benefit of backup CDs is the possibility to re-install the purchased software at any time without being tied to our working hours. The same benefit has our Backup CD, of course, plus we use the highest quality equipment and media (Taiyo Yuden) for the Backup CD's producing for its maximum longevity. Please use the link below to learn more about our Backup CD (just place the mouse cursor over the "i" icon).

** We intend to update our Photoshop extensions with some new features, etc. on the regular basis. As a result, chances are high that the particular Photoshop extension or set of extensions (if put onto the Backup CD) will become outdated either upon delivery to you or very soon after that. Hence, in these circumstances, it would be dishonest to offer you to pay for a Backup CD with our Photoshop extensions on it.
Q: How can I purchase your impressive setup tool, which comes along with the Windows versions of your Photoshop plugins?
A: Our setup tool is for our internal usage only. Currently, it is not available for purchase.
Photoshop Extensions Related General Questions

Q: Are your Photoshop extensions compatible with Photoshop CS - CS4?
A: No, they are not! They are only compatible with Adobe Photoshop CS5 and higher
Q: Do your Photoshop extensions require separate versions for Mac OS X and Windows?
A: No, a single version works just wine with either 32-bit or 64-bit versions of Adobe Photoshop CS5 (and higher) for both Mac OS X and Windows.
Q: Should I run Photoshop CS5 for Mac OS X in the 32-bit mode in order to use your Photoshop extensions, like I do with some Photoshop plugins?
A: You can, of course, but there is no necessity to do that. Feel free to use our Photoshop extensions with your Adobe Photoshop CS5 (and higher) natively in the 64-bit mode or, if needed, in the 32-bit mode too.
Q: Can I install your Photoshop extension manually?
A: In theory, yes you can. But we strongly recommend that you use the Adobe Extension Manager CS5 (or higher), because this makes the installation both much simpler and minimizes issues.
AV Bros. Polaris 1.1 Related Questions

Q: Can I use AV Bros. Polaris 1.1 with hosts other than Photoshop CS5?
A: You can only use our Photoshop extensions with Adobe Photoshop CS5 and higher.
Q: What is the difference between the Trial version of AV Bros. Polaris 1.1 and its full version?
A: In general, some functionality and a number of uses are limited for all extensions of the AV Bros. Polaris 1.1 set, but each extension has its specific limitations.

Please, be aware that despite the mentioned above limitations you can try all the possibilities that provides each extension of this set.
Q: Should I uninstall the trial version of AV Bros. Polaris 1.1 before installing the full version?
A: No you should not! Please keep it installed, because there is no separate full version of AV Bros. Polaris 1.1. When you purchase our Photoshop extensions set, then you will be provided with the License key, with the help of which you will activate the trial version of our product. Once activated, the trial will be converted to the fully functional version.
Q: I am on Mac and I've been trying to install your AV Bros. Polaris, but I received the error message from the Adobe Extension Manager that stated that your extension '...does not contain valid signature...' Any ideas?
A: This is the known issue of Adobe Extension Manager CS5. It has been discussed on the Adobe's forums (Please check it here.) and it seems that Adobe has resolved it at least for Mac OS X platform. The appropriate update has been released, so the only thing you should do is to check for available updates from Adobe.
Q: What is the upgrade policy for AV Bros. Polaris 1.1?
A: AV Bros. Polaris is covered by our Extended Upgrade Policy: buy once and upgrade for free during the product's lifetime! This means that the new versions of this set's extensions and even the additional extensions (if included in this set) will be free of charge for the owners of the AV Bros. Polaris set of Photoshop extensions!
Photoshop Plugins Related General Questions

Q: Are your Photoshop plug-ins compatible with Photoshop CS6?
A: Both AV Bros. Page Curl Pro 2.2 and AV Bros. Puzzle Pro 3.1 are FULLY compatible with Adobe Photoshop CS6 for Windows ONLY.

Due to the fact that the Mac OS X version of CS6 is no longer supports switching to the 32-bit mode, our plug-ins cannot be used with this host. From the other hand if your Photoshop CS6 for Mac OS X is a part of the Adobe Creative Suite CS6 (for Mac OS X), then you can use our plug-ins with Fireworks CS6 that is also a part of Adobe Creative Suite CS6.
Q: Are your Photoshop plug-ins compatible with Photoshop CS3, CS4 and CS5?
A: Yes, both AV Bros. Page Curl Pro 2.2 and AV Bros. Puzzle Pro 3.1 are FULLY compatible with Adobe Photoshop CS3 – CS5*, including support of the Smart Filters option and Video Layers (for CS3 – CS5 Extended) option of these hosts!

*Windows platform: the plug-in can be used with both the 32-bit and the 64-bit versions of CS5;
  Mac OS X platform: Photoshop CS5 is to be run in the 32-bit mode ONLY!


Note! All said above is NOT related to AV Bros. Page Curl 2.0, which has not been "adjusted" for CS3-CS5.
Q: Do your Photoshop plugins work under Mac OS X on Intel-based Mac?
A: Yes, both PRO versions of our plug-ins (AV Bros. Page Curl Pro 2.2 and AV Bros. Puzzle Pro 3.1) are Universal Applications and, as a result, they work fine under Mac OS X on Intel-based Mac.

Unlike them, AV Bros. Page Curl 2.0 is NOT a Universal Application and, as a result, it does not natively work under Mac OS X on Intel-based Mac.
Q: Do your Photoshop plugins work under Mac OS X?
A: Yes, they do. But be aware that our filters do NOT work under Mac OS 9.x.
Q: Can I use your Photoshop plug-ins with the Mac OS X version of Photoshop CS5?
A: You can use both AV Bros. Page Curl Pro 2.2 and AV Bros. Puzzle Pro 3.1 with the Mac OS X version of Photoshop CS5, but CS5 is to be run in the 32-bit mode* ONLY! The current versions of the plug-ins do NOT support usage with the Mac OS X version of Photoshop CS5, which is run in the 64-bit mode.

* NO features of either of these plug-ins will be missed in this case.
Q: How do I run Adobe Photoshop CS5 for Mac OS X in the 32-bit mode?
A: To run Adobe Photoshop CS5 in the 32-bit mode, please do the following:
  1. Make sure that Adobe Photoshop CS5 is closed.
  2. In the Applications folder find Adobe Photoshop CS5 folder and select Adobe Photoshop CS5 itself and then, make the mouse right click (Ctrl+click) and choose the "Get Info" menu item.
  3. When the popup window appears, select the "Open in 32 Bit Mode" checkbox and then, close the window.
  4. Run Photoshop CS5.
If you need to run Photoshop CS5 in the 64-bit mode, then do the same procedure and just deselect the "Open in 32 Bit Mode" checkbox.
Q: Do your Photoshop plug-ins work under 64-bit version of Photoshop?
A: Windows platform: Yes, both PRO versions of our plug-ins (AV Bros. Page Curl Pro 2.2 and AV Bros. Puzzle Pro 3.1) have the 64-bit versions (along with the 32-bit versions) and, as a result, they work fine under 64-bit versions of Photoshop CS4 and CS5 for Windows. Pay attention that AV Bros. Page Curl 2.0 has ONLY the 32-bit version.

Mac OS X platform: The current PRO versions of the plug-ins (Page Curl Pro 2.2 and Puzzle Pro 3.1) do NOT support usage with the Mac OS X version of Photoshop CS5, which is run in the 64-bit mode. Instead you should run CS5 in the 32-bit mode (NO features of either of these plug-in will be missed in this case.)
Q: What is the difference between the 32-bit and the 64-bit versions of your Photoshop plug-ins for Windows?
A: Either of our main Photoshop filters (Puzzle Pro 3.1 and Page Curl Pro 2.2) for Windows has both the 32-bit and the 64-bit versions. These versions are absolutely identical in every aspect (options, GUI, etc.), except for the one: the 64-bit version of either Puzzle Pro 3.1 or Page Curl Pro 2.2 does work with both Adobe Photoshop CS4 (64-bit) and CS5 (64-bit) under Windows 7 (64-bit) or Vista (64-bit). By the way, thanks to this fact you can apply either Puzzle Pro 3.1 or Page Curl Pro 2.2 to significantly larger documents.
Q: Should I install the 64-bit versions of your Photoshop plugins, if my operating system is the 64-bit Windows?
A: Either of our main Photoshop plug-ins (Puzzle Pro 3.1 and Page Curl Pro 2.2) for Windows has both the 32-bit and the 64-bit versions. But you should install the 64-bit version of our Photoshop filters ONLY in case that your image editing application (host) is either Adobe Photoshop CS4 (64-bit) or Adobe Photoshop CS5 (64-bit), which is run under the 64-bit OS (operating system), such as Windows 7 or Vista. In case of ANY OTHER OS/host combination, you should install the 32-bit versions of our Photoshop plugins.
Q: I've just purchased your Photoshop plugin for Windows and have downloaded the ZIP file that contains TWO full versions (the 32-bit and the 64-bit) of the filter. But I have only ONE License key. For which version should I use it?
A: The License key for your Photoshop filter, whether it is Puzzle Pro 3.1 or Page Curl Pro 2.2 (both for Windows), is valid for both the 32-bit and the 64-bit versions of the plug-in.
Q: Do you recommend removing the earlier versions of your Photoshop plugins prior to installing the most recent ones?
A: As you wish... There are no technical problems if all versions are installed on your system.
Q: What is the time limit on the Demo versions of your Photoshop plugins?
A: There is NO time limit on the Demo versions of our filters. We use other methods to protect them.
Q: Why are your Photoshop plug-ins grayed out in the Filter menu of Photoshop?
A: Please check the image, to which you are about to apply the particular plugin. This image should be a raster image (8 bits per channel) in the color mode supported by the plugin (RGB, Grayscale or CMYK). The non-compliance with this statement is the only known reason of this problem.
Q: How do I get rid of the text "Demo Version", which is all over my image after applying your Photoshop filters?
A: This text is the protection of the Demo versions of our plugins. This will not appear on images if you use the purchased version of either of our plugins.
Q: How should I learn using your Photoshop plugins and how do I create those impressive images from your gallery?
A: Please read both the particular filter's User Guide, and the Tutorials (if present) on our site. And, of course, play with the particular plug-in, because the practice is a great teacher.
Q: Can I update the DEMO versions of your Photoshop plug-ins to the fully functional products, after purchasing? The DEMO versions are still installed on my system.
A: You cannot update the DEMO version. When you decide to purchase either of our Photoshop plugins, you will need to download the full version of this filter and install it on your system. For your convenience, we recommend that you remove the DEMO version of the plug-in from your system. (Otherwise there will be both versions in your image editing application.) To learn more about both the process of purchasing and downloading the full versions of the plugins, please go to the Purchase page.
Q: I have reinstalled your Photoshop filter and it is now asking for the License key... Is this correct and if yes, then where can I find it?
A: That's correct! When you run the FULL versions of either AV Bros. Puzzle Pro 3.1 or AV Bros. Page Curl Pro 2.2 for the first time, then the special License Key Validation window appears and you are asked to enter the License Key to continue working with our Photoshop plug-in.

Note! This is NOT related to AV Bros. Page Curl 2.0.

The best place where you can find the License key is the letter that you have received, when purchased our Photoshop plugin. We consider this place as "the best", because you can copy the License key from there and then, paste it into the License Key Validation window. This minimizes the possible mistypes. But if, for some reason, you have lost that letter then, you can find the License key written on the About Plug-in window. To reach it, choose the "About Plug-in" menu item from under the "?" button of our Photoshop plugin's window. Unfortunately you won't be able to use the copy/paste operation, in this case, so be accurate when you enter the License key into the License Key Validation window to prevent mistypes.
AV Bros. Page Curl Pro 2.2 Related Questions

Q: Is AV Bros. Page Curl Pro 2.2 compatible with Photoshop CS6?
A: AV Bros. Page Curl Pro 2.2 is FULLY compatible with Adobe Photoshop CS6 for Windows ONLY.

Due to the fact that the Mac OS X version of CS6 is no longer supports switching to the 32-bit mode, AV Bros. Page Curl Pro 2.2 cannot be used with this host.

Q: Is AV Bros. Page Curl Pro 2.2 compatible with Photoshop CS3, CS4 and CS5?
A: Yes, AV Bros. Page Curl Pro 2.2 is FULLY compatible with Adobe Photoshop CS3 – CS5*, including support of the Smart Filters option and Video Layers (for CS3 – CS5 Extended) option of these hosts!

*Windows platform: the plug-in can be used with both the 32-bit and the 64-bit versions of CS5;
  Mac OS X platform: Photoshop CS5 is to be run in the 32-bit mode ONLY!
Q: Why should I upgrade to the PRO 2.2 version of this Photoshop filter?
A: AV Bros. Page Curl PRO 2.2 is an extremely powerful Photoshop plugin and thanks to this fact, it lets you create the design that you simply were not able to create using the earlier versions of the filter, such as Page Curl 1.2 and 2.0. At the same time, there are no effects created by earlier versions that you cannot create by the plugin's PRO version. Moreover, thanks to the unrivalled engine of AV Bros. Page Curl PRO 2.2 it is considered by us as the multi-purpose Photoshop plug-in that may be used not only as the page bender, but also as the Texturizer, Lighting lab, etc. And, of course, the PRO 2.2 version is latest version and is FULLY compatible with Adobe Photoshop CS3 – CS5*, including support of the Smart Filters option and Video Layers (for CS3 – CS5 Extended version) option of these hosts! Mac users should be aware that this Photoshop plugin is now Universal application. Please visit the Gallery page to review what you can create using Page Curl PRO 2.2 and the page of this Photoshop filter to read more about its features.

Q: I want to know whether I am eligible to upgrade to AV Bros. Page Curl Pro 2.2 and if yes, then how can I do that?
A: If you have ANY of the older versions of AV Bros. Page Curl or AV Bros. Page Curl Pro, then you ARE eligible to upgrade to Page Curl Pro 2.2. Depending on the version that you own, the upgrade will be either FREE of charge or NOT free of charge for you. Please review our conditions below:

  1. If you own either Page Curl Pro 2.0 or Page Curl Pro 2.1, then you can upgrade to AV Bros. Page Curl Pro 2.2 FREE of charge. For that, please send us the appropriate Support Request and we will provide you with the Licensing data for AV Bros. Page Curl Pro 2.2. Please include in the letter the License Key of your AV Bros. Page Curl Pro 2.0 (2.1).

  2. If you have either AV Bros. Page Curl 2.0 or even Page Curl 1.2 versions, then you can purchase the upgrade to AV Bros. Page Curl Pro 2.2, rather than pay the full price! To upgrade, please go to the Purchase page of our site and choose the Upgrade item for the desired platform in the Page Curl Pro 2.2 section.

Q: Can I run Page Curl Pro 2.2 as a standalone application?
A: No, you cannot. Page Curl Pro 2.2 is a Photoshop plugin. Therefore, you can use it only with the image editing applications (hosts), such as: Adobe Photoshop Elements, Adobe Image Ready, Adobe Fireworks (formerly Macromedia Fireworks), Corel Paint Shop Pro, Corel Photo-Paint, Ulead PhotoImpact, etc.). See the list of the supported hosts in the description of this Photoshop filter.
Q: What is the difference between the Demo version of AV Bros. Page Curl Pro 2.2 and its full version?
A: The text "Demo Version / Page Curl Pro 2.2" is placed over the resulting image and the text "Demo" is placed over the image in the Main Preview in the Demo version of AV Bros. Page Curl Pro 2.2. All other features are the same in both versions of this Photoshop plugin.
Q: What is the difference between the 32-bit and the 64-bit versions of your Page Curl Pro 2.2 for Windows?
A: These versions are absolutely identical in every aspect (options, GUI, etc.), except for the one: the 64-bit version of Page Curl Pro 2.2 does work with Adobe Photoshop CS4 (64-bit) or Adobe Photoshop CS5 (64-bit) under the 64-bit OS (operating system), such as Windows 7 or Vista. By the way, thanks to this fact you can apply Page Curl Pro 2.2 to larger documents.
Q: Should I install the 64-bit versions of your Page Curl Pro 2.2, if my operating system is the 64-bit Windows?
A: Either of our main Photoshop plug-ins (Puzzle Pro 3.1 and Page Curl Pro 2.2) for Windows has both the 32-bit and the 64-bit versions. But you should install the 64-bit version of Page Curl Pro 2.2 ONLY in case that your image editing application (host) is Adobe Photoshop CS4 (64-bit) or Adobe Photoshop CS5 (64-bit), which is run under the 64-bit OS (operating system), such as Windows 7 or Vista. In case of ANY OTHER OS/host combination, you should install the 32-bit versions of our Photoshop filter.
Q: I've just purchased your Page Curl Pro 2.2 for Windows and have downloaded the ZIP file that contains TWO full versions (the 32-bit and the 64-bit) of the filter. But I have only ONE License key. For which version should I use it?
A: The License key that you have for Page Curl Pro 2.2 is valid for both the 32-bit and the 64-bit versions of this Photoshop filter.
Q: AV Bros. Page Curl Pro 2.2 has the impressive "additional" options such as Texturizing, power Lighting etc. Is it possible to apply them to the image, which I do NOT want to curl or fold?
A: Absolutely! This is why we consider it as the multi-purpose Photoshop filter! Please read the "How to use AV Bros. Page Curl Pro 2.2 in a "nonstandard" way?" topic of the User Guide.
Q: The new Ambient Light Auto-Adjust option produces a great result, but not in all cases. What am I doing wrong?
A: As was said in the User Guide (p.45) of this plug-in, the Ambient Light Auto-Adjust option behaves correctly ONLY if the area, on which this option affects, is parallel to the background (The area's Altitude equal to 90 degrees.) and the light source(s) that you are using for lighting up that area is(are) the white color(s) with a positive intensity.
Q: I've tried to run Page Curl Pro 2.2 to my document, but the menu item, related to your plug-in, under the Filter menu was grayed out. What should I do?
A: The ONLY known source of this behavior is that your document's color mode is NOT supported by Page Curl Pro 2.2. Please pay attention that the document's color mode should be one of the following: RGB, CMYK or Grayscale (8-bit each of them).
Q: I am curious why I should use your plug-in for the turning page effect, if I can create such an effect using one of the appropriate tutorials. Any ideas?
A: That's right – there are a few tutorials that describe how to create the turning page effect. And although they have different names (page curl tutorial, turn page tutorial, peel page tutorial, etc.), they use just 2 methods: a) adding the artificial "curled" part (as the tutorial's author believed it should look) to the page and trimming the "unnecessary" part of the page (meaning your image) and b) distorting the part of the image that you are about to curl using the host's (e.g. Photoshop or Paint Shop Pro) tools to obtain the appearance similar to the curled page...

Here are the cons of the resulting page curl effects produced by such tutorials:

  1. Practically all of them look artificial, rather than as a real bended page.

  2. There is practically NO variety of the results created by different users, since everyone re-creates one of the limited number of tutorials that are available. In other words, your curled page will be practically identical (Except the content, of course!) to a page curled by anyone else who has used the same tutorial.

  3. Even worse, there is practically NO variety of the effects, produced by these tutorials, themselves! This is either slightly or a bit more noticeably "curled" corner of a page and... that's all! The back-side of a page is either filled with color gradient or semitransparent.

  4. The quality of the result is quite low. In most cases the obtained result looks like a "curled" rubber (or any sort of a stretchable material) sheet, rather than a normal paper sheet that we usually want to curl. As far as we remember, we've seen only 1 (ONE) tutorial, the quality of which was acceptable. But even using that tutorial you could produce only ONE type of the "curled" page effect.

  5. Since all your actions while re-creating the effect using a tutorial is a manual work, chances are not good that you will be able to apply the obtained result to another image in just "one click", using any type of the hosts' scripting routines (e.g. Actions for Photoshop).

Probably there are some more cons, but we think the above is enough! As for the pros... well, as it seems to us, they have only ONE – they are FREE.
Now swap cons to pros and vice versa and you'll get the "description" of our AV Bros. Page Curl Pro... It is powerful, versatile, scriptable and with the resulting effect of the highest quality. You just play with this product and... it gives you the ideas for your future project... It's a real creativity buster! Simply compare the effects produced by our Photoshop plug-in (find them in our Gallery) and the various tutorials' results and you'll definitely feel the difference!
But, we must admit- this tool is not free of charge. So, it's up to you to decide what is more important to you personally.

Q: What is the difference between the Demo version of AV Bros. Puzzle Pro 3.1 and its full version?
A: In the Demo version of AV Bros. Puzzle Pro 3.1 you cannot use the Export commands in the Layout and Puzzle modes and there is the text "Demo Version / AV Bros. Puzzle Pro 3.1", which is placed over the resulting image and the text "Demo", which is placed over the image in the Main Preview. All other features are the same in both versions of this Photoshop filter. For your convenience, we have prepared several sample documents produced by Puzzle Pro 3.1, so that you could evaluate the powerful Export options of our Photoshop plugin. Click here to download the ZIP file with these documents.
Q: What is the difference between the 32-bit and the 64-bit versions of your Puzzle Pro 3.1 for Windows?
A: These versions are absolutely identical in every aspect (options, GUI, etc.), except for the one: the 64-bit version of Puzzle Pro 3.1 does work with Adobe Photoshop CS4 (64-bit) and CS5 (64-bit) under Windows 7 (64-bit) or Vista (64-bit). By the way, thanks to this fact you can apply Puzzle Pro 3.1 to significantly larger documents.
Q: Should I install the 64-bit versions of your Puzzle Pro 3.1, if my operating system is the 64-bit Windows?
A: Either of our main Photoshop plug-ins (Puzzle Pro 3.1 and Page Curl Pro 2.2) for Windows has both the 32-bit and the 64-bit versions. But you should install the 64-bit version of Puzzle Pro 3.1 ONLY in case that your image editing application (host) is Adobe Photoshop CS4 (64-bit) or CS5 (64-bit), which is run under the 64-bit OS (operating system), such as Windows 7 or Vista. In case of ANY OTHER OS/host combination, you should install the 32-bit versions of our Photoshop plug-in.
Q: I've just purchased your Puzzle Pro 3.1 for Windows and have downloaded the ZIP file that contains TWO full versions (the 32-bit and the 64-bit) of the filter. But I have only ONE License key. For which version should I use it?
A: The License key that you have for Puzzle Pro 3.1 is valid for both the 32-bit and the 64-bit versions of this Photoshop filter.
Q: What is the difference between the version 3.1 of AV Bros. Puzzle Pro and the version 3.0?
A: The helpful addition related to the Hexagonal layout has been added to the Auto Layout option of our Photoshop plugin and the minor bug has been fixed.
Q: You offer to download the additional sets of shapes for AV Bros. Puzzle Pro 3.1. But how can I install them into this Photoshop filter?
A: To start operating with these shapes, you should unzip the downloaded file (with the shapes) first and then, place the files that are inside into the default folder of "Shapes Sets" of Puzzle Pro 3.1. Then use the standard Load Set command of the Preset Manager of Puzzle Pro 3.1. (Please read the Preset Manager topic of the User Guide of this plugin to learn more.)
Q: I've tried to run Puzzle Pro 3.1 to my document, but the menu item, related to your plug-in, under the Filter menu was grayed out. What should I do?
A: The ONLY known source of this behavior is that your document's color mode is NOT supported by Puzzle Pro 3.1. Please pay attention that the document's color mode should be one of the following: RGB, CMYK or Grayscale (8-bit each of them).
