Demo FAQs

How is the DEMO different than the purchased version?

The demo overlays an X on the plugin’s output. Upon purchasing, the X will disappear (on whichever plugins you purchased). There will be no need to re-apply the effects in your project, saving you time.

What about image-editing versions for Photoshop?
All three Pro versions of the Blur-Sharpen Tools plugins -- BlurBlender Pro, Smart Sharpen Pro, and Smart Blur Pro -- are available as Adobe Photoshop filter plugins (for Windows). Click here for details. Although Photoshop already contains some blur and sharpen filters, Blur-Sharpen Tools plugins provide many additional ways to customize and blend the effects, plus our industry-exclusive organic masking technology.


Do these blur and sharpen effects plugins have special hardware requirements?

All of our blur-sharpen effects plugins are hardware-accelerated via your computer's video/graphics chip to accelerate rendering. Therefore, a DirectX 9 or OpenGL 2.1 compatible graphics card is required (almost any chip released in the last 10 years will work). A DirectX 10 or OpenGL 3.2 compatible card with at least 1GB video memory is recommended for HD and high bit-depth editing.

Are these plugins only available as a download?

Yes. All of our blur-sharpen plugins are in one installer file. You can even download the installer file on a different computer, if necessary, then transfer it with a USB key or other media to your editing computer before installing.

How do I install the Demo?

(Windows): After saving the demo file to your hard drive, double-click it.
(macOS): The download is a .dmg file for macOS computers (High Sierra and later). Double-click the saved .dmg file to open it. Follow the ReadMe in the dmg file to complete the installation. After the installation is finished, you can eject the dmg.

How do I uninstall the Demo?

(Windows): Choose Uninstall Masters from your Start > All Programs > Pixelan > Masters folder. Or double-click Pixelan Masters in your Windows Programs and Features control panel.
(macOS): Start Uninstall or Add PlugIns from your Applications > Pixelan FX for Adobe folder.
