As I already said, I did remove the 64-bit plugins and replaced them with the 32-bit plugins along with the executable inside and within my PS plugins director for PSPI. How does the link look in your pspirc file for NIC, Rod? I can just manually type that in it like I had to for Impressionist (and have to often; lol). :)

They all look something like this Lyle.
  <ps-plug-in path="C:\Users\Rod\Desktop\FILES\8BF\NIK\SHP3OS.8bf" timestamp="1433853258">
    <entrypoint menu-path="<Image>/Filters/Nik Collection/Sharpener Pro 3: (2) Output Sharpener" image-types="RGB* " entrypoint="PluginMain"/>


Too bad there isn't one main NIK executable to link Shellout to for the entire collection.

Still, I just as well use shellout then have PSPI work and glad I got all 7 NIC programs working in the GIMP now. Thanks for the extra info, Rod, but, again, I'll just stick with Shellout. :)

Someone at another forum noted that you can drag and drop for the 4 stand-alones any file type (tif, jpeg, or png). That led me to try tif again. I still occasionally get errors box pop-up with tif but the layer gets transferred back to GIMP. I guess I assumed you coundn't pass tif due to the error box. You still cannot pass png though. Now at least you can work with alpha channels too. :)

If you want to use the HDR efex pro 2, it can't be done with ShellOut. (?) So you have to copy the original bracket images, then you select them al and put them on the HDR Efex Pro 2.exe extension.

HDR Efex Pro 2 saves a new HDR image. In my windows-system, I could find them back in my documents folder.

With tiffs I got also an error (in the other software of the NIK Collection): "Incompatible type for "RichTIFFIPTC"; tag ignored". Is there something I can do about that? With PNG, I don't get errors.

All the programs of the NIK Collection do work with ShellOut. With all alternative 8bf-hosts, I had some trouble. It depents on the 8bf-hosts, they give different results.

It can be done; just you cannot pass the result back to GIMP; you have to saveas and then import that back into the GIMP. Of course I'm only talking about the tonemap ability. To do true HDR, you have to use the bracketing option, thus, you have to run it as a stand-alone. :)

I am having trouble getting shellout to show up in my filters even when I use a "fresh" shellout.py file downloaded from the repository. I am putting the file in the folder that is listed in my preferences. Is there something else I can do to get shellout to show in my filters drop down? I'm not worried about changing the python script, as I can do that after I get the script to show in GIMP

Gimp 2.8.16 running on windows 7 64bit

Thanks,

Matt

First, make sure you have python installed (do you see the python console option in the filters drop-down menu?). Then, make sure you have the shellout file in your plugins directory (not script-fu; python scripts are considered plugins as far as the GIMP is concerned). :)

Hi,
Bernhard Huber has a post on this that dates from May 2013:

Using NikSoftware in GIMP
Recently I bought NikSoftware Filters, like Color Efex, or Silver Efex. Usually I use them from Lightroom4, and that’s okay for me.
Now I don’t own Photoshop, but I have installed Gimp 2.8.4, and from time to time I use various Gimp filters like G’MIC, or National Geographic.
@ http://bernhardhuber.blogspot.ca/2013/0 ... -gimp.html

Rather than using PSPI, he suggests using Gimp ShellOut plugin from http://registry.gimp.org/node/24977.

He also includes a modified programlist section where he points to each NikSoftware .exe module. I am using GIMP 2.8.14, and his modification did not quite work as planned, the file was exported to the correct module, but the original file was imported back to GIMP rather than the NikSoftware Filters modified copy of the file.

I decided to try another approach: I changed all the .exe extensions to .8bf and all is now good.

I hope that this helps others who have been having problems integrating NikSoftware into newer versions on GIMP.

Paul

That's exactly what I'm doing, Paul (use Shellout). Changed some of the jpg passes to tif since tif supports alpha channels (you may get some error messages but you can just ignore them since this works). Can't use the png option since NIK filters don't recognize PNG for whatever reason. :)

Updated the list and added the pre-sharpener preset too (overlooked it last time since I thought it was something else; it's actually pretty cool for subtle edge sharpening without adding noise). :)

Thanks, you did the hard work... I copied and pasted.
They seem to be working good.
Thanks, everyone involved ! :tyspin
