Post subject:  GML GrowCut Filter

Here is a nifty plugin download I found from another member here in the forum. It is a mask and cutting tool. Although it is a little different from most cutting tools, it has lots of advantages. It is an 8bf plugin, so it is compatible with PhotoShop and all PS 8bf compatible programs. Get it here:

Below is an image made from four cutouts of flowers sent to me in a photo this am from my sister. The GML plugin was used for the flowers. The image was found online, and cut out using more conventional means previous to my having acquired the GML. The 8bf light render was used on the head of the figure. Fiddle with the graphic, you will enjoy it.

Hello Jack,

With PhotoFiltre Studio there is only "GrowCutMask" working - "GrowCut" can only be used with Photoshop.

First, if you are the person who so aptly supplied this download, I thank you. Second, I just put that title as a reference to the download page, however GrowCut did install in my PFS program, and I have used it. I have listed GrowCut Mask Extract and GrowCut Mask. Is there a third called GrowCut? If so, that I do not have. Perhaps it is not working fully, I would need an expert (you) to let me know, because I may be living in a fantasy here. Please let me know. :oops:

Hi Jaume,

keep cool, :) Jepe says right.
I had tried the both setups.
- the GrowCut setup a selection plugin for Photoshop
- the GrowCut Mask setup 2 filters plugin 8BF

You can verify in the installed programs list of Windows settings, you have setup GrowCut Mask, other way you couldn't see the filters in the 8BF list of PFS.
Have a nice day. :wink:

Hi Tom,
That expression implies upset or anger. I am not upset, nor am I angry. I was simply asking for "expert" input since I am far from being expert at anything. So what have you said here? I do have it, or I do not. Thanks! And I consider you an expert too! Thank you for your help, I have always trusted your advice, and learned. :shock: If you were asking me, I have used the growcut mask.

Hi Jaume,

you can do as you wish with the GrowCut setup, if you can use it with PhotoShop.

The only thing to retain for the PhotoFiltre Studio users :

the setup to download is the GML GrowCut Mask 1.1

I can't tell anything more precise... :(

All's well that will end well. Literally in french. :)

I do not know who said I have PhotoShop, because I do not. Below are two screen captures of both GML filters in use in PHOTOFILTRE STUDIO.

My original question, and still a question is this: Are either of these the filter Jepe is mentioning in his original reply to my post? No philosopy, simply a straight-forward reply to an honest question. Thanks.

:lol: OK...........I give up. I am using both, I do not have PhotoShop, I have not paid for the second plugin, so all will remain a yes and no mystery to me. Thank you for your time and effort. :lol:

Hi Jack,

Sorry to be late!
First, it was not me who discovered this plugin, but it was "Pascal". I just indicated a better download site, as the one of the developper was to unstable.

As your screenshot shows and the fact that you can use this plugin, you did install the right one - GrowCutMask - which include GrowCutMask and GrowCutMask Extract.
Well I am far to be an expert, but if you could tell us what is not working for you, I could translate your question and post it in the (french) "Plugin"-part, to get an answer from "Pascal" who allready did create a little tutorial for this plugin.

And to Pascal,

Thank you for these wonderful plugins!

Jack, that was a nice piece of information you have shared with us. I was in search of an application which help me to do online editing of pictures as I am doing some photographic works. Since the plug in you have shared is compatible with desktop, I think I can make use of it.
