I installed the action for Watercolor Artist – Perfectum 2 – Photoshop Plugin, but the window > Extensions does not show up. I am using Photoshop 24.0 on a Mac M1 Pro. I have emailed profactions@gmail.com.

Hi! Just sent you email. Please check..

Hello, I installed and ran the plugin. It works great except that the circle processing indicator never stops. After clicking the Watercolor button, the indicator begins turning to show that it is working but this never stops so I cannot run the plugin on another image. Do I need to restart Photoshop each time to correct this?

Latest version of Photoshop on Windows 11.

Thanks, Mike

No. It’s not normal. Please send me your psd result to profactions@gmail.com

Hello! i have successfully downloaded the plug in. I am running PS 24.0 on a Mac with M1. I do not have the WINDOW>EXTENSIONS option. I went to PS PREFERENCES>PLUGINS and the check boxes for the extensions panel is completely greyed out. Any reccomendations?

Yes. Please email me to profactions@gmail.com for the instructions.

is there any differnce between perfectum 2 action and perfectum 2 plugin?

Yes. Perfectum 2 plugin has got a completely new algorithm.

Hi, I just installed Perfectum2 and the extension window is not resizeable – I can’t use it. Would appreciate your assistance, thank you

Please send me your Photoshop screenshorts so I can give you instructions. profactions@gmail.com

I purchased Watercolor Artist Perfectum 2 today and downloaded the relevant files. On my Apple silicon Mac I opened PS with Rosetta and followed the installation instructions. The dialog indicated that the plugin was installed successfully. I closed and restarted PS using Rosetta as instructed and opened an image. However Extensions (legacy) submenu under Window remains greyed out. I cannot open or use this plugin. Using PS 23.5.1. I’ve also sent an email to your gmail address but have yet to receive a reply.

How do I correctly install and run this plugin? I’ve read all the links noted in this thread as well as those referenced in your trouble shooting section but have not found an answer.

Thanks for comment. Just sent you instructions

Hello. I’m trying to use the plugin on max m1 + photoshop 23.5.1 but I cant find the extension panel…

Can you help me?

Yes. If you are using MAC with Apple Silicon M1 and Photoshop from CC 2021 v22.3 and higher, please first install Rosetta as Adobe recommended. Rosetta is not an app that you need to open. Rosetta works automatically in the background whenever you use an app built only for Mac computers with an Intel processor. It translates the app for use with Apple silicon.

Hi. You can only delete relevant folders/layers manually

Hi, Like many others I’m switching from the action version to the extension. I’m using PS version 23.4.1 on a Mac (without M1). Using others’ comments I got to the point where it now runs however it completes the process with only 4 layers and no actual artwork. The canvas colour is all that is visible. The other layers are: profactions, layer 1 and BG. Any ideas?

Hi! Detailed testing showed that problems with actions and plugins are caused by incorrect work of Photoshop version 23.4.1. Some functions of Photoshop, such as “Selection and Mask”, do not work at all correctly. Unfortunately, the problem is not in the action/plugin, but in the latest Photoshop update (23.4.1).

In confirmation of my words, please check the link to the Photoshop forum. A Photoshop employee acknowledges the problem and promises to fix it in the next update. https://community.adobe.com/t5/photoshop-ecosystem-bugs/select-and-mask-bug-in-photoshop-23-4-1/idi-p/13042846


To date, I do not yet recommend using the latest version of Photoshop (23.4.1) due to incorrect and slow work of some important functions. I suggest you roll back to the previous version of Photoshop, for example 23.3. It has been tested and works without bugs.

I see. Unfortunate for those with only that version. Luckily I have a 2nd computer where I discovered the plugin works fine. Good to have this warning up for other users though.

I have the action version of this plugin – from Envato Elements. It no longer works with the recent version of Photoshop CC (need to downgrade to 23.3.2 to get it to work).

If we purchase the addon does the effect work the same way? Will it produce the same results as the action?

Will you ever be able to get the original action to work?

Thanks for sharing that link.

Does the Plugin version produce the same results as the action? Or is the end effect different?

Cheers!

The plugin algorithm has been completely redesigned and produces results much more complicated than an action.

will this plugin work on Mac computer using the M1 processor?

Hi, I bought the earlier version of Perfectum 2 a while back. Do I need to buy the plugin one also. Because if not when I download the plugin it does not accept code when put in.

No. You only buy the product once. Submit your code for verification: profactions@gmail.com

I have tried mutiple times, And I keep getting incorrect purchase code. I have given up. And tried again tonight. And I did send you an email and never rgot a responds back. I will send another email.

Hi! I checked your purchase code and everything is absolutely fine with it. I just sent you email.

Hi, I love your actions, however, after I installed Perfectum 2 and Urban Sketcher on my new laptop, I am constantly getting “Warning. No pixels are selected” error. I have sent you an email to profactions@gmail.com. Could you please take a look and help me?

Thank you!

Hi! I highly recommend you to reset your Photoshop settings and warnings: hold down Alt, Ctrl, and Shift keys (Mac: Command, Option, Shift) while starting up Photoshop. A dialog box will appear asking if you wish to delete the preferences/settings and warnings. Delete and try again.

Thank you! I’ll try that.

What’s the difference between Vintage Watercolor, and Watercolor Artist? Is the Vintage one sharper on human portraits?

I bought the Watercolor Artist, but just realized it’s not sharp enough on human faces, and want to change to Vintage Watercolor instead as it looks sharper. Is it possible to change over to Vintage Watercolor using the credits I paid for Watercolor Artist?

Hi! These are two completely different algorithms and results. Perfectum 2 has recently been updated and is the best watercolor tool on the market. Please email me to profactions@gmail.com with your questions.

Hi I have just purchased this. Just wondering how long on average does it take to run? I tried a very small file size photo, and it’s half an hour now and still running. Is this normal?

Hi! The process usually takes 3-4 minutes.
