    Hi, I have two questions. I have Perfectum 2...is there a big difference with 3? Second question - is there a trick to getting a white background? All of mine seem to go very dark. Thank you!

    Hi! Thank you very much for question. Perfectum 3 is new generation in the series of Perfectum watercolor works.It takes the creative basis from the previous versions and presents the next level. 1. Absolutely new algorithm
    More universal, flexible and thoughtful in working with original image and in creating of watercolor graphics. 2. New watercolor style
    More real, artistic and soft. You will get watercolor results, most similar to the work of a real master. 3. New Brushes and Patterns
    New watercolor brushes and seamless patterns for creating unique graphic artworks. 4. New level of detalization
    Final result is represented by even greater number of maximum accuracy watercolor elements. Maximum freedom of improvement. 5. Pencil sketch background
    Under basic watercolor result you will find a pencil drawing for creating the effect of soft sketch.

    Hi! Thank you for your message. I am sure we will quickly find the cause of the problem. There are several possible error reasons: 1. Please note: the action has two action modes (please see your Action panel) for different PS versions. You must use second version if your PS is CC2017 or CC2018 2. Please check your new (not Background copy) layer name. It must be “profactions” (not “Profactions” or “Brush”) 3. Please check you have installed the action brushes and patterns. If not, please drug Brushes and Patterns files to your PS and try again. Also, please send me your PSD file and Photoshop screen when the action stopped at first to [email protected], so I can test your project. Thank you for your time!

    There's obviously a bug in there (PS 2018 latest version): The command "Select layer "Layer 6" fails because there's no Layer 6 at this time (only layers 1-5). I've run other Profactions with my PSD-file without hassle so the possibility of an 'user error' is rather low...

    Hi! Thanks for message. Don't worry, the action are tested and works fine with CC2018. First of all, please check you installed the action brushes and patterns. Second, please check your new (nor Background copy) layer name (it must be "profactions"). Third, please use English PS vertion. And please note, the action has two action mode for different PS versions. And you must use second mode (please see your Action panel) for your CC2018. Also, please send me your prepared psd before play the action to [email protected] I will test and give you my clearest reccomendations. Thank you for your time!

    Thank you very much for your psd. I see your problem. You must use photos or images as original Background. Not text or shapes or simple color figures. Because to get an amazing watercolor result, the action needs a graphic basis for work. Please try photo or image. And be free to contact me with any questions. Thank you for your time!

    Ok, I see (and checked) it only works when the background is filled with 'something'. Plain white does not work and forces the action to spit out error messages. Though it is a weird behaviour I now know how to avoid such problems. You should consider to add this information to the help file. ;-)

    Thank you very much for your detailed feedback! But the white background itself is not a problem. You can use photos, portraits, objects on a white background and the action will work perfectly (you can see some photos in my preview poster). It is important that the subject / portrait / area you selected be photo quality (not simple text or shapes). Contact me with any questions any time :)
