Great Start Menu Launcher

Hello There , welcome to another techtip
Today we will be discussing the FSL Launcher , a Start menu type launcher that Displays your short cuts , files and other data in a tabbed dock .


My review of it is 4/5 , it's good , but can go better , for example some functions are limited only for the subscribers , but even the free version can be very handy .
I also noticed that it does not handle Program Files Shortcuts right away , in 64 bit you have two of them but the program only launched the ones installed in the same program files with it , in that case  program files (x86) , so you need to edit that shortcut manually , when it does not launch it freezes until you press the OK under the Icons , and the icon is displayed without the Picture .
That bug was on Windows 7 64 Bit
Tell us what you think :)

Add Photoshop plugins to Gimp 2.8 + FREE Compatible plug-ins inside

Good day, and welcome to another tech tip, today we will be improving the amazing gimp a little bit more, by adding third-party plugins originally made for Photoshop using the Pspi plug-in.

for information on installing this plugin go to this guide which demonstrates how to do it very easily!!


Of course all the 30 plug-ins we are about to add are free of charge and the are copyright of their respective owners, but i packed, tested, and uploaded them, so if you want to refer to it, please use my link (or give me a better one than use it :).
Just extract the plug-in (compressed in .7Z file format for smaller more efficient size and download speed), all compatible and tested on gimp 2.8  [windows XP Sp3] to the directory of your choice, mine was "C:\Program Files\GIMP 2.8\PSplugins\".



-As you may notice i changed the default install directory from 2.0 to 2.8 to make it more oblivious for me-, and i put the the plug-ins inside gimp for organizing purposes only but you can put them anywhere you may, note that if you relocate or alter the plug-ins they will not work until you browse for them again then restart gimp.
 in this picture you will notice a green dot next to the option (Photoshop plug-ins), because gimp has detected them and when you remove them "he" will no longer be able to read them.



Under the filters menu you will see rather than the individual plug-ins company names, such as xero and flaming pear in our case, which under you will find the plug-ins ready for use, as in the image .


and you are set, but am sure that you are aching to test new plug-ins, or your old ones from your Photoshop days, i encourage you to do so, but here is some VERY useful tips:
  • If you click the plug-in and it does nothing at all, that means it does not work, and if it comes with an error message that means it will not work also.
  • Try to add the plug-ins one at a time, because you will be in for a load of work if you don't!
     
Here i urge you to add any plug-ins you know that they work with gimp 2.8, the ones you guys tested,(free of course) i will add them with credits to you of course and with YOUR link, not mine, and i will update this as regular as possible.
Thank you for reading, i hope you both enjoyed and learned something today, please comment to keep the steam rolling.
Finally we come to the part we all like, yeah! the FREE DOWNLOAD bit. plugins download link.
P.S: as mentioned in this post, and add to the gimp will add seconds to the program's loading time.
To access the full screen mode just press F11.



Gimp 2.8 RC VS Gimp 2.8.0


Well So far, not much..!
Compatibility issue with office 2003 fixed.
Starts much faster as described below on my PC Specs here:
---------------------------------
Windows XP Professional Service Pack 3
Intel(R) Pentium(R) 4 CPU 3.20GHz
 Memory: 992MB RAM
Chipset: SiS 661FX
---------------------------------
Start times:
First start of the program, right after install, no brushes, etc added.
01 Min 02 Sec
Second start, right after the first (Without restart).
10 Sec
After Restart :
24 Sec
Edit image, right after the restart (Without restart).
10 sec

I may have to note that i have a tweak that clears the ram form .dll files after closing the program, maybe it's part of the thing, you can find it in this thread, works even on Windows 7 starter, and may work on others two.
P.S: i read somewhere on the web that brushes add 05 Sec to the startup pf the program.

How to free Up Memory Automatically by Unloading DLLs in Windows 9x and NT with AlwaysUnloadDll

I only added this tweak for reference in a another post about gimp 2.8 which you can check from here.
"user that still has and using Windows operating system prior to Windows 2000, such as Windows NT, Windows Me, Windows 98 and Windows 95, there is a trick to free up memory without using any third-party software utility. The trick is to force Windows to unload and free cached DLLs from memory.

Windows Explorer caches extensions DLLs (Dynamic-Link Libraries) in memory for a period of time after the application that using them has been closed or exited. Windows Shell automatically unloads a DLL when its usage count is zero, but only after the DLL has not been used for a period of time. On low memory systems, the behavior will contribute to system slowness and delays with lesser available physical memory, and cause inefficient use of memory especially when debugging or developing Windows DLL files.

   1. In system prior to Windows Vista, user can force Windows unload the unused DLL to free up the occupied memory by using “AlwaysUnloadDLL” setting in the registry.

   2. Run Registry Editor and navigate to the following registry key:

   3. [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\Curr entVersion\Explorer]

   4. Create a new sub-key named AlwaysUnloadDLL and set the default value to 1 to disable Windows caching the DLL in memory.

   5. Restart Windows for the change to take effect.



Note that the registry key is only supported on Windows prior to Windows 2000, so for Windows XP and Vista, the sub-key is useless and unnecessary, and can be safely deleted."

PerigeeCopy 1.6, a great copy handler

In this segment we are going to look at a decent software that never got recognized, the following is from the "developer website, and plus the download links, enjoy
Have you ever carefully selected dozens of files and folders in Windows Explorer and dragged them to a destination folder, only to have Windows bail out on the whole procedure because one of the source files is still in use?  Have you ever wished there was a "No to all" option on the overwrite prompt dialog?  Or for the ability to automatically overwrite files only if the source file is newer?

How about deleting files--say you want to clear everything out of the temp folder except the two files that are in use.  Explorer is little help--it will bail as soon as it hits one of them, and refuse to delete anything else.  Or perhaps, like me, you've been annoyed by incessant spurious "Are you sure?" prompts. 
    "Are you sure you want to delete these files?"  Yes.
    "But wait!  This one's a program file.  Are you sure you want to delete it?"  Yes.
    "But wait!  This one's read-only!  You surely don't want to delete it, right?!" 

I created PerigeeCopy specifically to address these annoyances with Windows Explorer's built-in file operations.  PerigeeCopy is a configurable Win32 shell extension that lets you copy, move, and delete files with the ease of Explorer's GUI, while at the same time adding additional features and options, not the least of which is the ability to resume after errors and retry any failed files at the end of the job".

Fix the Resolution problem on netbooks

Hello everyone, and welcome to another tech-tip.

Generic NetbookToday we will be talking about the Resolution problem that occur with Netbook while trying to run some programs.

OS: XP SP3, Netbook type HP Compaq CQ10-100 

Gimp 2.8 Problem solved!!

Hey there you guys? 

How are you today?

I hope you are doing great!

 




Tested OS: Windows XP SP3  MS Office 2003 Enterprise, Gimp 2.8 RC1
If you installed the amazing Gimp 2.8 and enjoyed working on it as much as i did, you would be interested in reading this, Gimp 2.8 crashes, loads for a split second and then vanishes, even if you view the process in task manager, you will see it for a split second and then it goes out..
What is causing this?
The Reason for this is Office 2003, apparently there is a font issue that is causing this bug, and it's yet to be fixed (at the point of the post), so if you are a die-hard gimp fan you will be forced to make a choice between the two, (That is office and Gimp)
Tip: You can use Open Office, almost as good, absolutely free of charge.
As soon you uninstall the Office 2003 suit and reinstall gimp 2.8, it will work normally.
And That is it..
Please Comment and thank you for reading.
Have a wonderful day.
