What are people saying about EZlect

Paint Shop Pro User How does Ezlect work with Paint Shop Pro Photo XI, which supports plug-ins, but has a Selections rather than a Select menu? I can't find Ezlect in Paint Shop Pro.
Mar 22 2009 at 5:43pm Copy Link
Frederik Slijkerman Unfortunately, it looks like Paint Shop Pro only supports normal filter plug-ins, not selection plug-ins. I'll include a filter version of Ezlect in a future update though.

Ezlect does work well in Adobe Photoshop Elements, by the way.
Frederik Slijkerman - Mar 24 2009 at 10:28am Copy Link
pereh pereh So, it does not work either in Paint Shop Pro nor in Elements? In that case, I can name some products for about the same price that do both.
So, what is your point of developing this software?
No offence.
Mar 26 2009 at 10:16am Copy Link
Frederik Slijkerman Ezlect does work in Photoshop Elements, but it doesn't in Paint Shop Pro, because PSP only supports filter plug-ins. As I said, I'll update Ezlect as soon as possible to also be available as a filter plug-in, so it will work in PSP too.
Mar 26 2009 at 9:46pm Copy Link
pereh pereh Sorry, I got that about Elements wrong.
Would you be so kind to give a note here when it can be tested with PSP?
And maybe a word about the differences to the competitors: Power Mask, Mask Pro and Fluid Mask?
Mar 27 2009 at 9:46am Copy Link
Frederik Slijkerman Regarding PSP: that will take a little while. Please check the main Ezlect site for updates.

The main difference between Ezlect and competing products is the way you make the selection: instead of tediously tracing the edge of the object, you just click on the object and background areas and interactively refine the selection. It's a much more efficient process.

Diana Calder I give up. I've repeatedly tried to purchase today's software (Ezlect) but the online store simply will not work properly. Every time I fill out the form, when I choose the province (Ontario), the form reloads - and clears out the province again. The order can't be submitted without that field being completed and the form will not save my entry in that field. I've tried with both Firefox 3 and IE7; neither will work. I wish that I could purchase Ezlect, but it's become obvious that it simply isn't going to happen.
Mar 30 2009 at 3:28pm Copy Link
Frederik Slijkerman Hi Diana,

Sorry to hear about the order problems. I have contacted Cleverbridge to make sure they sort out this problem. If you e-mail me directly, I'll make sure you'll still be able to place the order for the discount price.

Best regards,
Frederik Slijkerman

Sean n/a Hey Beautiful tool man In future versions have you considered adding an outline predictor based on straight lines and curves? Like say part of the bottom of a jar is very close to the background but its already got two parts of the curve selected could it not recognize the curve shape and predict based on that?

Paul Judd Hello,
What is the update policy for Ezlect?
Oct 9 2009 at 11:52pm Copy Link
Frederik Slijkerman Hi Paul,

Minor bug-fix updates, for example from 1.00 to 1.10, or 1.12 to 1.13 are always free. Once I would release a major upgrade such as a version 2 release, existing users could purchase it for a reduced price. Hope this answers your question!

Best regards,
Frederik Slijkerman
Frederik Slijkerman - Oct 10 2009 at 3:04am Copy Link
Paul Judd Hello,
Thanks for that. One other question will the licence allow installing on a desktop and a laptop if not used at the same time?

Oct 10 2009 at 8:57am Copy Link
Frederik Slijkerman Yes, it will, as long as you are the only person using this licensed version of EZlect.
Frederik Slijkerman - Oct 10 2009 at 9:00am Copy Link
S B Does the current version of EZlect run under Photoshop CS4 x64 in Windows 7? 8-, 16- or 32-bit color? RGB only?

Is there a mechanism to smooth or round the selection?

So far, I could only get EZlect to run in 32-bit Photoshop, and as a Filter, and couldn't export the selection outline easily. I may have missed some of the documentation.

EZlect seems like a *very* convenient product. There are some nice touches (e.g., the control key changes between object and background markers). I think I still want to be able to refine the selections.

Is there an easy way to get rid of the little outlying "islands" of selections?

So far, it seems like a very intuitive and convenient way to make fairly complex selections.

Thank you!
Oct 12 2009 at 2:32pm Copy Link
Jerry S I used the demo with Photoshop Elements 7 running on Vista Home Premium SP2 64-bit without problems.

I also have questions about refining selections. In the demo, I didn't see how that was possible.

Is it?

Oct 12 2009 at 5:12pm Copy Link
Michael Crosson I'd also be interested in this once it works with Paint Shop Pro. Sounds very handy!
Oct 12 2009 at 5:52pm Copy Link
Barbara Adams Does it work on a Intel Mac?
Oct 13 2009 at 12:19am Copy Link
Frederik Slijkerman EZlect is a 32-bit Photoshop plugin for Windows. It will run on 64-bit Windows, but only with a 32-bit version of Photoshop. It will also work with Paint Shop Pro. Currently there is no Mac version.

You can refine a selection simply by adding more markers: e.g. if a part of the image is selected and you want to remove that part from the selection, just place a background marker over there.
Frederik Slijkerman - Oct 13 2009 at 2:14am Copy Link
darrell deshazer 1 I copy the license and paste but it said it was invalid.
2 how do you extract to another the object off the help is not working
Oct 13 2009 at 10:42am Copy Link
Frederik Slijkerman 1. Make sure you copy and paste the entire license including the BEGIN and END lines that surround it.
2. I don't really understand your question, please e-mail with an explanation so I can help you better.
Frederik Slijkerman - Oct 13 2009 at 1:02pm Copy Link
O I Unfortunately, EZlect doesn't work with Zoner Photo Studio which supports Photoshop 8bf plug-ins only. May be you have to specify, that this is a selection ("8bs") plug-in and will not work in programs that only support filter plug-ins ("8bf").
Apr 3 2010 at 11:01am Copy Link
Frederik Slijkerman Actually, EZlect works both as a selection and as a filter plug-in. Some hosts only work with the .8bf extension. In this case, you can simply rename the installed plug-in from EZlect.8bs to EZlect.8bf.
Frederik Slijkerman - Apr 4 2010 at 7:46am Copy Link
O I Indeed, when I renamed the EZlect.8bs to EZlect.8bf, it loaded in Zoner Photo Studio, but when I try to use it an access violation error appears in the CreateApplicationHandle function (
0af063d4 +000 EZlect.8bf Manager 162 +0 CreateApplicationHandle)

peter hayes G'Day,

Bought this last time and i must say that it works very well. I have used Ezlect on many projects (photoshop cs3), both simple and complex and it has come through with flying colours each time, a great time saver.
Apr 4 2010 at 9:14pm Copy Link
Frederik Slijkerman @OI: I've tested Zoner Photo Studio and found that if you click on EZlect - EZlect Extract, the plug-in will load correctly. However I couldn't find a way to work with transparency in ZPS so it is probably not useful as a host application for EZlect (which purpose is to make areas of a picture transparent). I recommend Adobe Photoshop Elements as a low-cost host that works well with EZlect.

Nico Westerdale Due to the overwhelming response Frederik Slijkerman has agreed to extend this deal for another day - Enjoy!

fran harter Hi,


I have an old version of photoshop elements (version 2.0)
that came as a full version, with a scanner I bought years ago.

Will this software plug in work with it?

Thanks in advance.
Apr 6 2010 at 3:53pm Copy Link
Frederik Slijkerman I think it will work, but to be sure you can try the evaluation version first, before buying!
Frederik Slijkerman - Apr 6 2010 at 4:23pm Copy Link
Greg M Hey Frederik,  Ezelect looks like something I should try, as I am a PhotoShop novice and the few times I have tried to do complicated selections, it has taken me a long time.   I downloaded and tried to use your software, but it appears as though the plug-in still does not work with Photoshop 5, 64 bit.  My OS is Win7-64.    So, I have a couple of questions: 1) Do you plan to support 64-bit CS5 anytime soon? 2) Can I install both 32 and 64-bit versions of PS5 on my system without them conflicting? Cheers, Greg

Patricia Hamilton Hi

I have Windows 7 and also a laptop with Snow Leopard.
Would i be a be able to use the software on both platforms (not at the same time of course) with a single licence?

Second question does it run on 64bit Windows and 64bit Photoshop?

Oct 20 2010 at 10:01am Copy Link
Frederik Slijkerman Unfortunately, EZlect does not support 64-bit Photoshop at the moment, and there are no immediate plans to update it. You can run install both the 32-bit and 64-bit versions of Photoshop: they will be installed to separate folders so there won't be any conflicts. So this is a good way to use EZlect with Photoshop CS5. You can use a single EZlect license both on Mac OS X and on Windows as long as you're the only person to use those installed copies. Cheers, Frederik Slijkerman

peter hayes Have been using Ezlect since the last time it was offered here and i must say that i find it to be a great piece of software, works very well, recommend it to anyone.
Oct 20 2010 at 8:15pm Copy Link
Greg M Frederik, Thanks for your reply.  32 and 64 bit PS5 are now both installed on my system and working fine. I ran the EZlect demo on 32-bit PS5, and thought I would try to crop a picture of my financee's hair blowing in the wind, taken with a telephoto lens, so the background is blurry and its hard to pick out the hair.  End result: I'll be $19 "less rich" on the 27th, and happy for it.  Great product! One other question (won't affect my decision)... Is there a way to select multiple markers at once, for deletion?
Oct 25 2010 at 4:08am Copy Link
Frederik Slijkerman Yes, you can Ctrl-click (or Cmd-click on Mac) markers to select more than one.
Frederik Slijkerman - Oct 25 2010 at 7:32am Copy Link
Max Schaefer I have been trying out the evaluation version, unfortunately the proliferation of watermarks make anything you select pretty meaningless.

Otherwise I don't feel it has much more to offer than the magnetic lasso or magic wand as a selection tool, I do a lot of restoration of damaged photos and selection is a large and time consuming part of the job, I thought this software may be of help, the jury is still out as to weather it is worth spending even $19.00.

Louis H I have been working with the trial version for about a week now and at this point my experience has been more frustration than satisfaction. I am sure that the major portion of this is my own lack of skills when working with selections, but it still is frustrating.

A short while ago I picked up the Helicon Filter program offered here and find it a lot easier - for me at least - in setting up a selection. I access the Helicon selection plugin from Photoshop Elements 9 - "paint" out areas I want to remove - save the file - exit back into Elements - and then fine tune things.

I think what would have been very helpful for me is to have access to video tutorials actually demonstrating how this program works best. The help file and tutorial - while direct and to the point - did not give me enough of what helps me when I begin to feel I am all thumbs. My resulting selections (and again I stress my own lack of skill in this area) were unusable and it was actually easier to simply stay within photoshop elements to begin with - and things went a lot quicker - with far less frustration - for me with the Helicon filter program.

I'm still working with EZlect and have not yet decided one way or another as to whether or not I will pick it up, but at the moment I am thinking no. Hearing others, like Greg, who have had positive experiences would be appreciated.

Frederik? (Or anyone else) Are there any video tutorials out there?

Cameron Gay I bought EZLECT the last time it was on BDJ - it one of the best Photoshop add ons I have seen. Selecting complex shapes is not easy with PS and it's quite easy to become frustrated. EZLECT changes all that.

At USD$49 it's good values at USD$19 it's the bargain of ther year

Tazzie Although I've used PS and Gimp, I usually end up using Paint Shop Pro Photo X3.  I also have PSElements, but haven't tried EZLECT with it yet.  I did try it with PSPX3, and it worked great (using Win7 64bit).  I am quite experienced at extracting objects with the selections in PSP, but still I found EZELECT to be faster and easier.  It was a no-brainer for me to buy EZELECT.  I would encourage Louis and others to hang in there and give it more time.  I've no doubt that my experience with PSP helped in quickly figuring out EZELECT, but I also have to give the program its due and I'm sure with time and practice you'll find it a very useful tool.  Any good tool will take that time and practice to perfect its use ... try starting with objects that are easily differentiated from the background and work from there.  Do both extracting an object from the background or deleting an object from the background ... just play around with a variety of images.  I actually went thru intensive training on this in PSP, and I can't tell you how many different images and types of extraction and such that I worked on.  You'll still need other tools in PS or whatever program you use to finish up what you do with EZELECT, but for me, it does the majority of the work so that I can focus on polishing it up and doing what post-work I planned.  I like using PS/Gimp, but for quite a few things I still prefer using PSP, and this is one of them. 

Anyway, good luck with the decision and hope it works out for you!

Louis H Thank you to Cameron and tazzie! (And Greg, too!)

Based on your encouragement and experience I've decide to go ahead and pick it up this evening. That's the nice thing about getting to "know" some of the folks who hang out and post around here.... I find I'm willing to take a chance on some programs I may not have been able to work with enough to decide based on my own experience and thus take advantage of the discounts. I will say that so far I have not been let down!

thanks again to folks who are willing to interact with the "community" that has developed around here.  :)

And if anyone ever finds or puts together a video tutorial - please let me know... Thanks!
Oct 27 2010 at 4:57pm Copy Link
Tazzie @Louis ... glad we could help, and pls don't hesitate to ask if you have questions about using the program.  I'll be practicing on it, too, and hopefully will improve my own use :)  I'll keep my eyes open for a video ... unfortunately, I'm not sure if my video-making skills are are up to making one.  Anything I make would have to be subtitled since I wouldn't be able to do audio with it, and I don't know how people feel about video tutorials with just subtitles/captions.
