    Welcome to TalkGraphics marcomonte to get that you must purchase the program then you need to download and install the contact pack. If you have already done those, then download the contact pack and install it again and see if it now shows up. If you have and are using the trial version, it is not available to you.

    Having just bought XP&GD10, which I'm running on an XP SP3 system, when I try to run the Photo Looks plug-in, I get the following error .... IS anyone running it on XP successfully?

    I have a 128 MB ATI Radeon 9600 (STOP LAUGHING) card (Actually it's an ASUS A9600) running Open GL 2.0 ... I think - One day when I'm rich and famous, I'll have to buy a new computer.

    Yes, I read that too John, it seemed to me that they have discontinued it from the suite. It doesn't say it will no longer run .... I've sent a ticket to Xara support anyway. I'll see what they say. Don't you ever sleep it's 3 a.m. there ...

    Support replied as follows:

    "It does appear Photolooks needs a more beefier graphics card to run, it does take a lot of resources rendering the images and effects. On the bright-side, not long now before you can sell the card as an antique."

    Pretty much what I expected ....

    TBH Keith you are not missing much. I think that Xara should pull photolooks I always had issues with it even with an good graphics card and a quad core PC. When I contacted Xara support I was told they had to pass my issues on to Red Giant so now that RG is no longer supporting it it makes no sense to keep it bundled.

    . I use ON1 photo suite for most of my photo editing. It doesn't work as a plugin with Xara but it's awesome as a stand alone and you can get a version of the perfect effects module free. http://www.on1.com/apps/effects9free/

    The folks at ON 1 posted once in their blog that they might be looking at supporting other non Adobe hosts in the future and Serif is pushing to get their foot in the door. I wish the folks at Xara would jump on this. http://www.on1.com/blog/page/5/

    Yes. I've had a look at PERFECT EFFECTS 9 FREE ... Trouble is my "wonderful" computer hasn't got a snowball's chance of running it. These are the specs it requires ... Since it needs *GB RAM that makes it a 64 bit machine, which I don't have.

    If anyone rich wants to send me a new computer, I'll let you have my address ....

    It needs much more power that PHOTO LOOKS. However, my office laptop runs Photo Looks fine, and to be honest, I'm not too bothered anyway. I have lots of other programs and Plugins that do the same job, and I don't use them either.

    Ohh yeah I forgot about the older computer I'd still love to see an On plug in that would run with Xara
