1. Introduction
Welcome to Corel KPT(R) Collection. This document contains
important information about installing and using this
collection of filters. Please review the system requirements
and installation instructions.

2. Mac OS X Notes
We have provided Mac users with both a non-Carbonized
and a Carbonized collection of filters. During the installation,
you will be prompted to choose which collection you would like
to install, based on the host application you'll be using.

The Carbonized and packaged collection (Mac OS X compatible) will work with
hosts that have been Carbonized and can run natively
on Mac OS X. Examples of these hosts are
Corel(R) PHOTO-PAINT(R) 10, Bryce(R) 5, and
Painter 7(TM).

In OS X, The packaged collection (Mac OS X compatible) will work with
hosts that are packaged. Examples of these hosts are
Corel(R) PHOTO-PAINT(R) 11 and Adobe(R) Photoshop(R) 7.0.

The non-Carbonized collection (Mac OS 8.6 - 9.x compatible)
will work with hosts that have not been Carbonized and
that would run in Classic mode on OS X. Examples of these
hosts are Adobe(R) Photoshop(R) 7.0, Corel PHOTO-PAINT 8,
Bryce(R) 4, and Corel Painter 6.1.

The Carbonized collection will not run in a non-carbonized host
application.

If you want to use Corel KPT(R) Collection in both a Carbonized and a
non-Carbonized host, you will have to perform separate
installations.

Corel KPT(R) Collection will not function installed on a UNIX partition
under Mac OS X.

5. Installation Instructions

Mac Installation Information:

Power Macintosh
1. Insert the Corel KPT(R) Collection CD-ROM into your CD-ROM drive.
2. If a window displaying the contents of the CD-ROM does not open
automatically, locate and double-click the Corel KPT(R) Collection CD-ROM
icon to view its contents.
3. Locate the Corel KPT(R) Collection folder on the Corel KPT(R) Collection CD-ROM, and
double-click the Corel KPT(R) Collection installer icon to begin installation.
4. The installer prompts you to locate your Plug-ins folder. This
folder is likely within the Photoshop application folder, or
within the folder of a compatible host such as PHOTO-PAINT,
Bryce, or Painter.
5. Click Continue in the main install window.
6. You will be prompted to choose the type of installation, based on
the host application that will be running Corel KPT(R) Collection. It will
default to the OS 8.6 - 9.x compatible host option.
7. Click Install to complete the installation.

After completing installation, simply run your host application, such
as Photoshop, Bryce, or Painter, and choose a Corel KPT(R) Collection plug-in from
within the Filter or Effects menu.

MACINTOSH INSTALLATION TIPS
Ensure that your Mac OS is 8.6 or later, and your display is set to a
minimum of 24-bit (millions of colors). Also ensure that you have no
open applications, and that there are no applications running in the
background (this includes anti-virus software, crash monitoring
software, and system diagnostic software).

RECOMMENDED RAM ALLOCATION
The minimum RAM requirement for Corel KPT(R) Collection to run within the host
application is 32 MB. For normal usage, it is best to allocate
as much RAM as is available to your host. Some host applications
exhibit anomalous behaviors in low memory environments. Performance
can be enhanced by allocating more RAM to the host.

PC Installation Information:

1. Insert the Corel KPT(R) Collection CD-ROM into your CD-ROM drive.
2. If a window displaying the contents of the CD-ROM does not open
automatically, locate and double-click the Corel KPT Collection CD-ROM icon

6. Click the "Browse" option to locate your host application's
plug-ins folder.
7. When you have a complete path statement ending with your
plug-ins folder, click "OK".

After completing installation, simply run your host application,
such as Adobe Photoshop, Corel PHOTO-PAINT, Bryce, or Painter,
and choose a Corel KPT Collection plug-in from within the Filter or
Effects menus.

WINDOWS INSTALLATION TIPS
Ensure that your operating system is supported.
(Corel KPT(R) Collection does not run on Win 3.x or NT 3.x.x and Windows 95 is
not a supported operating system), and that your display is set to
a minimum of 24-bit color (true color).

Also ensure that:

* you have no open applications, and that there are no applications
running in the background (this includes anti-virus software, crash
monitoring software, and system diagnostic software).

6. Known Issues

Applying filters to selections: Host applications based on the Adobe(R)
Photoshop(R) 3 plug-in specification, such as Corel Painter, can't apply
a filter outside of a selection. If you try to do so within
Corel Painter, or other such hosts, you will notice that
the preview is incorrect, and that artifacts might appear on the final
image. Photoshop 4 or later (or compatible hosts) do not yield these
results.

All filters

The default panel layout and recall mem-dots ( center dots ) in some cases do not coincide with the initial layout and control settings you will find when first launching the individual filters. You may define your own default values for the layout and recall panels center mem-dots. To re-define default mem-dot values hold SHIFT + ALT while clicking on the center mem-dots. This will assign the current panel layout, or controls settings, to the center default mem-dots respectively. Note: Equalizer, Lensflare, and Gel center default mem-dots will not retain values.

Preview Options: If your source image has no alpha channel, you may
not be able to see the different previewing options (black, white,
checkerboard, dark checkerboard, etc.).

When your taskbar is at the top of the screen, and you reduce and
then expand your workspace to full screen, the presets, cancel, and
accept buttons are partially cut off at the bottom of the screen.

The help files may not launch in Mac OS 9.2 with Adobe Acrobat
Reader 4.0 installed. You will have to locate them in the
...\KPT Collection\metaos\User Guide folder.

Presets are meant to be used as a starting point. When you choose
a preset, it will overwrite any existing work you've created in
your session.

KPT FraxFlame II(TM)
If the flame fractal in the parent window of the Mutation panel is
not the same as the fractal in the Preview window and you can't get
it to update, set the Genetic Mutation slider (on the Mutation
panel) to 0, so that all of the smaller surrounding fractals take on
the shape of the parent fractal. Click one of the surrounding
fractals to update (regenerate) the parent, and the Preview
window will refresh.

KPT Gradient Lab(TM)
Gradient blending: When applying the Hue map blend mode to a
JPEG source image, you may not get a good result due to the quality
of the JPEG format.

Presets in the Gradients folder (Category 1, Category 2, Category 3,
Category 4) are color blend presets and can be imported through the
Gradient panel (arrow in top right corner). Presets in the Gradient
Lab folder store the layer and slider information all of the panels
within the filter.

KPT Lightning
There may be slight differences between the thumbnail in the
Preset Manager and what gets displayed in the Preview window.

KPT Scatter(TM)
Particle panel: Alt + click to remove particles.

If you get an error message when trying to import a particle from
the ..\Samples\Particles folder on the CD, go up one folder
level and then back down to the Particles folder.

The best particle results are achieved from files with a transparent
background and a modest file size.

7. Other

Adobe Acrobat Reader 5.0 and Apple Quick Time 5.0 are included on
the CD for your convenience. They are located in a folder called
"Utilities", off the root of the CD. You will need an internet
connection to install Acrobat Reader 5.0.
