PhotoSpiralysis Beta

Today the second version of PhotoSpiralysis is released. Where the first version (alpha) was only available as a download for Windows, PhotoSpiralysis Beta is an online browser app. It only requires Silverlight 4, which is available for both Windows and MacOS in combination with either Internet Explorer, Firefox, Safari or Chrome.

    Saved jpeg after photospiralysis editing, will not open in PSE 8.

    Do you know why? can I do anything so it does.

    Many thanks. Excellent app by the way!

    I just found out what the problem was. Apparently the results are always stored in PNG format (even when the jpg or bmp extentions are used). If anybody is interested in the technical details they can check out this website:

    I created a workaround, which will be online shortly. As for the images that you created already: you can either rename them to .png (instead of .jpg) or you can try to open them using another photo editor (some editors are less picky) and then save them again.

    Good luck!

    Hello Erwin.

    I installed the downloadable version Photospiralysis (the last) and searching for the location where it was installed, I never could find it?
    By going into the interface of uninstalling programs it was not registered either.
    Then I had serious problems with windows explorer. Luckily I had backups.
    Can you tell me specifically or moved this application that I find very interesting nonetheless.

    Applying online seems even more elaborate. Will there be a possibility to download even if it means paying a little for that?
    Thank you.

    Bonjour Erwin.

    J’ai installé la version téléchargeable de Photospiralysis (la dernière) et en recherchant l’emplacement dans lequel elle s’était installée, je n’ai jamais pu la trouver ?
    En allant dans l’interface de désinstallation des programmes elle n’y était pas non plus inscrite.
    Puis j’ai eu de graves problèmes avec l’explorateur windows. Par chance j’avais fait des sauvegardes.
    Pouvez-vous m’indiquer précisément ou s’installe cette application que je trouve très intéressante malgré tout.

    L’application en ligne me semble encore plus élaborée. Y aura-t-il une possibilité de la télécharger quitte à payer un peu pour ça ?

    @Artsmoonika: For some reason I didn’t see you message until now. It has been waiting in the to-be-approved list for two years now. I’m sooo sorry! I don’t get much traffic on the website so I almost never check.

    I don’t know if I can still help you with an answer, but here it is anyway: I was able to install Alpha without problems. It then shows up in my programs list including an uninstall option (In windows 8.1 it ends up in C:\Users\\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\PhotoSpiralysis). I don’t think PhotoSpiralysis could be the cause of the explorer problems.

    I’m afraid there is currently no way to download the online Gamma version. Sorry. I am working on a Windows App though. This would let you run PhotoSpiralysis on Windows machines including Windows phones. Unfortunately the app is progressing very slowly since I don’t have much spare time to spend on this. And to be honest, there is barely any interest in PhotoSpiralysis anymore. If you’d like I can let you know when I have something workable ready for testing (halfway 2015?).
