Photoline TT & Epson GT Scanner Drivers

Postby Dark Willow » Fri Jan 20, 2012 12:31 am

Does anyone know where I can find a copy of Photoline TT, and also the TOS driver utils for the Epson GT6500 scanner? Neither seem to turn up in the usual searches, and even ASH don't seem to stock Photoline anymore.

The Epson drivers are on the forum. Quite possibly in one of my threads. . .

Great, thanks Dal :D

Just trying to get Photoline now. I emailed Computerinsel, as they still produce a PC/Mac version to see if they do happen to support it - and if not what the status is. Let's see what happens...

Just to update people, I've had no word back from them, so sent this follow up email today:


To: support@pl32.com
Subj: Photoline / Photoline TT for Atari platform

I sent an email to you about a week ago concerning the status of Photoline and Photoline TT on the Atari TOS platform. I have no yet heard back from you. I would like to know the status of the application this platform, and if it is no longer supported in any way by Computerinsel if the company would be willing to co-operate with Atari user and developer community by releasing the program under a less restrictive license, either as freeware (closed source, freely distributed binaries of the final release) or as open-source, the latter allowing the Atari community to co-operatively and voluntarily continue development of the code on a non-commercial basis. Adopting either license for the program would generate a huge amount of goodwill, at essentially no cost to yourselves. Indeed, by releasing Photoline and Photoline TT under either license, many Atari users who also use the PC or Mac systems will be more likely to purchase the current version for their modern system, to facilitate transferring images between platforms, and maintaining a consistent working environment.

I hope you will consider adopting a new approach to Photoline on "obsolete" systems, as I believe it will benefit all parties and keep in use and alive some excellent software.

I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Maybe adding the number of active and registered users to the Atari-forum / atari.org / atarimania might help ?

Have you brought the scanner yet Dark Willow? as the Epson GT scanner driver (at least the stand alone one) works with higher spec models that the 6500. I use a GT 9000, which is huge for an a4 scanner but produces good results. Just for god's sake don't try the parallel port connection, it vapourised my Falcon's sound chip when I tried it. Stick to SCSI.

Yes, the scanner worked perfectly first time, actually. I was really impressed with the software, so I made a blog post all about it :D
This was with a GT-6500 on SCSI. Another one of those behemoth scanners that looks like it could take down NORAD, but great quality and very well built.

PHOTOLINE IS NOW FREEWARE!

Postby Dark Willow » Mon Jan 30, 2012 11:58 am

I heard back from Gerhard Huber at Computerinsel, owners of Photoline. He is happy to release the Atari versions of Photoline as freeware :cheers:

we don't support the ATARI version of PhotoLine any longer. But I won't spent effort in making it freeware.
If you want, you can tell everybody that it is freeware.
I told this some other ATARI users in the past. The freeware registration number is
645762849
You can give this number to everybody you want.

I'm surprised this wasn't known to us before though, since he says he did tell the community before. As such I thought it's a good idea to post it here so we all know. If anyone has a copy of the binary it's probably worth adding it to this thread so it's available to all. I certainly wouldn't mind using it myself!

Gerhad Huber is one great guy :thumbs:
5 years ago, I contacted him about needing a driver for the Nova card on my TT and he replied and gave me the drivers.
I totally forgotten he owned Computerinsel until I saw his name in the above post.
Back then, I asked him if I can put his driver on my webpage, and he said go ahead. :D

Ok, folks, I don't know if it is the latest one, but I have this (registered to me) photoline I bought ages ago, it is Version 2.30

I don't know if the installer disks are good for the freeware code, but if you like...

Yes please, Paolo. If you could upload it here with each disk as a zip or image that'd be great.

OK, I am doing it right now!

And tell me, would you also need a scan of the manual? 8)

Mind you, I bought it from Homa System in 1998 (wow!) and the manual has a colour cover and b/w pages; I assume it would be safe to post the manual as well. Tell me. I am scanning it anyway now, just to be sure I don't lose it.

EDIT: Here we go!

EDIT2: Manual is 7 MB, I can't attach it! (I even scanned at 150 DPI...)

EDIT3: In a post below I added the link to the manual, that I add to this post anyway (just to keep stuff in order) :) https://docs.google.com/open?id=0B_LCWI ... MyZjk0MDMy

Just to let everyone know, the freeware serial number given by Gerhard does work with this version (unlocks the "Save" function). Just open the application, and enter the serial number in the "Info" window under the "Photoline" menu. Leave the name/address info blank.

Paolo, if you could upload the manual somewhere, that would be very helpful! I'm happy to host it on my blog, Wordpress supports PDF files of that size. If you drop me a PM I'll give you the email address to send it to.

Hold on!
I uploaded it in my Google Docs.

here it is!

https://docs.google.com/open?id=0B_LCWI ... MyZjk0MDMy

As I already wrote, the manual is B/W and has a colour cover. But I scanned it just B/W @150 dpi

I can tell you that the result is pretty near to the original, since it wasn't a very hi-res document to start with, and I saved a few bytes.
