Genuine Fractals goes 64-bit, CS5-native

The hits keep coming:

Owners of Genuine Fractals 6 can download the free update from onOne Software’s website... “My experience with Genuine Fractals running on Photoshop CS5 is that it is considerably faster due to the fact that it now includes 64-bit support,” says Douglas Dubler, a leading fashion, beauty and fine art photographer. “I make big prints, starting at 30×40 and 360 DPI, and so the time savings when I work with these large files is substantial using this newest release. It’s a big advantage.”

    I’m glad that Douglas is able to use GF in CS5, but it (GF 6.0.5) crashes CS5 on my machine, yet works perfectly in CS4. Is anyone else having this problem? ~thx

    It doesn’t crash Photoshop for me, but I still get an occasional (relatively graceful) -18004 error, which is to do with bad memory handling.
    The release notes to version 6.0.5 are refreshingly frank:
    “-18004 errors most likely fixed (potentially run out of memory if used enough times in a row)”
    So I still have Gf 5.0.4 running in 32-bit Photoshop. Slower, but never an error.

    I’ve recently had to blow up some images and used LR 3 b2 to help with the sharpening and noise reduction. It works quite well for one who doesn’t have GF.

    A further update, released today, might iron out the remaining wrinkles (though they haven’t changed the release notes).
