64-bit Updates Done!

We just released updates for Blow Up 2, Snap Art 2, Image Doctor 2, and Xenofex 2. All currently shipping Alien Skin products are now 64-bit compatible on both Mac OS X and Windows!

You can download the latest installers from our downloads page.

On Mac OS X, the updates only support the Intel platform, so PowerPC users should not update.

  1. Yayy!
    You had mentioned earlier that Snap Art 3 was close to release – has there been an unforeseen delay?

  2. Simon Schollum says:

    Yay! Thank you, Thank you, Thank you – Good work team – a lot of work engineering this and very much appreciated.

    Will there be a 64bit-update for BlowUp 1 on CS5?

    Thank you,

      No. We only converted the latest versions of our products to 64-bit. I am sorry, but we simply do not have time to go further back than that. A 64-bit update is a major rewrite of a product, especially on the Macintosh.

      Consider upgrading from Blow Up 1 to 2. The upgrade is $99 and you will get some great new features. Also, you can use coupon code QUICK64 for 15% off. The code will work until Tuesday, January 11, 2011.

      One warning, our 64-bit versions do not work on PowerPC Macintosh computers. Do not upgrade if you are using an old G5 Mac!

    Am I correct in assuming that we just install them from scratch?
    That we don’t have to install from the CD first, and then install these 64-bit versions?
    I hope that any necessary instructions come with these updates, so it doesn’t take 2 hours and 3 e-mail conversations to run the updates.

      Yes, yes, yes!!!!!!!!
      Just installed 4 Alien Skin plug-ins in under 20 minutes (including the download time), and it WAS A PIECE OF CAKE!
      Thank you Alien Skin – you NAILED it!!!
      (sorry for the all-caps, but I thought it would not offend).

      • Jeff says:

        Hehe, I’m glad it was so easy. We recommend uninstalling before doing a new installation, but it usually works fine to just run the new installer. That usually overwrites anything old.

        I’m actually not a fan of keeping CDs around. Those old installers cause a lot of tech support because they contain old bugs that we have fixed recently. You can always get the latest and greatest from our downloads page.

    I am having a bit of trouble running blowup on my mac. I am using CS5. Every time I try to use it, it locks photoshop so that I have to restart it. Right now I can not use it. Any help would be appreciated.

  7. Darren says:

    I’ve always had issues with snap art 2 working in 64 bit mode, so I downloaded the new version and now it states it’s not a valid win32 application. I tried running it as an admin too…

  8. Late to the party here, but I noticed that prior to being discontinued a 64-bit compatible version of Xenofex 2 was made available, but it’s not longer listed on the downloads page. Is this available anywhere on the site?

  9. RobertL says:

    Hi George,

    64-bit versions of Xenofex 2 is still available to customers who have previously purchased it. Since it has been discontinued it is no longer listed on the site for download. If you have previously purchased Xenofex 2 just send an email to Support@alienskin.com and we will send you a link to download the most up to date version of the software prior to it being discontinued.
