    Question about "Genuine Fractals"

    Hi Folks.
    Recently someone mentioned this program in a thread and so I tried the 30-day trial version as a Photoshop plugin.

    The result was that the image contained an "overlay" of little "GF" icons, even making it hard to "evaluate" the result.

    In a huff I uninstalled the program and plugin, and then later I was wondering if this is how it "supposed" to work.

    Anybody know? - for the trial version.
    Thanks, Am.
    CC, Image editing OK.

    Thanks, M A. I think they hobbled themselves in my case. Even the "GF"s had little artifacts around them that mucked up the image a bit.
    (Humph!)

    yep. quite a few trial plugins do that. It is there way of getting you to buy the product.

    I've used Genuine Fractals and been happy with it as a program.

    About 9 months ago 1 of my sons wanted to print some shots he took with a 4mp p&s in South America at A3 size so it was left to Dad to sort out the quality issues (even thought he has degrees in Electrical Engineering & Computer Science).

    I trialled a few programs & ended up buying Genuine Fractals, which did a pretty good job. It has subsequently been upgraded (free upgrade) to a product called Perfect Resize which is a bit more memory hungry but is, otherwise, easy to use
