RE: filmscanners: Genuine Fractals

I just checked the Altamira web site, located at

I found the following:  You have the light version of GF 2.0 bundled with
your scanner and you register it from the web site.
The site also notes:  The Genuine Fractals LE software included in the
bundle enables users of the Coolscan line to save images as resolution-free
files that can be enlarged far beyond their original size with surprisingly
high-quality results. Genuine Fractals 2.0 LE lets you start with up to 8 MB
of data in your images and enlarge them up to 64 MB.

In short you are limited to 8MB files.

Subject: filmscanners: Genuine Fractals

I bought a Nikon Coolscan IV about 10 days ago that has a full version of
Genuine Fractals bundled in.  There was no documentation for Genuine
Fractals.  Altamira's web site is useless.  I have loaded Fractals as a
plugin to Photoshop 6.0.1.

When I tried to use Genuine Fractal, I saved a TIFF file produced by Vuescan
to GF's STN file in Photoshop.  When I retrieved the file and tried to scale
it, I saw a thumbnail of the photo that had a heavy pattern embedded.  When
I opened the scaled image, the photo had the pattern overlay (I am guessing
here) that all but obliterated the image.  Does anyone know what I am doing
wrong?  Is this a license disabling device?  GF came with no instructions
and no serial number.  I did not even see a serial number insertion on the
installation.  Any reference to documentation would also be helpful.

Thanks, Doug Landrum, Digital Dunce.
