Until SuperBladePro is upgraded for 64 bit compatibility in Photoshop CS5, an upgrade is just not feasible, in my opinion.

I agree. They also need to do something about the clunky cumbersome interface. I tried using it today after about a year or so and decided that I should look at the much more expensive but much better designed and more capable Filter Forge. (The developer also doesn't seem too interested in answering issues concerning SuperBlade Pro issues.)

@ Steverb511: Indeed. They've never been very good about supporting the Mac version, requiring us to convert their textures in order to use them, a tedious and not all that effective process. Now, of course, their converter won't run on in OS X 10.7 so they are falling even further behind. Frankly I think they're a lost cause. They haven't taken Mac development seriously in years.

I used this software back in the 90s. It was quite good. It is hard not to think that it has grown somewhat stagnant. I mean, the website still has the same look that it did in the 90s. I would've expected an interface re-think by the time Photoshop 5 came out.
If you're going to spend this much for a plugin, might as well get a full app like ArtText, which has a nice interface and better presets. Faming Pear really needs to come up with some new software.

Every file in this .dmg is dated 2010. Is this really the right download for March 2012?

It doesn't show in my Photoshop Filter menu, either (gotta study about installation a bit more, but I just dragged it to the PS5.1 Plug-Ins folder, as the short instruction said).

I had the same problem today. just saw on the Flaming Pear website that Photoshop needs to open in 32-bit mode which can be set by finding PS, selecting and then clicking the Open in 32-Bit Mode checkbox.

Can anyone tell me whether SuperBladePro 1.8 will work with Photoshop Elements 8.0 ?
I am on an Intel Core 2 Duo iMac, running MacOSX 10.5.8. Thanks.

Always liked Super Blade, but invoking the UB version on an Intel Mac under Photoshop CS3, sad to say, consistently causes Photoshop to crash.

I've been using BladePro for some years, now. SuperBladePro has been a wonderful successor. I have been glad that they've moved to OS X! I've been very satisfied with the way these plug-ins work with Photoshop (even LE) and Graphic Converter (though i haven't gotten them to work with GC on X... :-( ). Good work guys :-)
