FastStone CaptureFastStone Capture is a powerful, flexible and intuitive screen-capture utility that can be very useful for all Photoshop users on the Microsoft Windows platform.

In previous versions of Photoshop for Windows it was possible to capture a single window by using the key combination Alt+PrintScreen, which would copy the result to the clipboard.

Photoshop allows you to create a new document based on the content of the clipboard by selecting in the menu File / New. Photoshop then automatically adjusts the height and width according to the size of the screen capture that was placed on to the clipboard. In the document itself it’s then just a matter of pasting the content of the clipboard (Edit / Paste or Ctrl+V) inside the current document.

Photoshop CS2 however doesn’t allow to capture a single window; the key combination Alt+PrintScreen will copy the complete screen instead. The only way to copy a window in Photoshop is to use a special screen capture utility like FastStone Capture.

If you save an image in Photoshop, flatten it and save it by accident, then you’ll notice that the regular undo command Ctrl + Z (Command + Z on the Mac) doesn’t have any effect.
Luckily there is a different solution to undo the mistake, which is to use Alt + Ctrl + Z (Option + Command + Z on the Mac) instead, also known as Step Backward.

Moire Pattern RemovalThe free Fourier Transform plug-in (only for Windows) has been designed to make filtering in the frequency domain available for free.

It uses one of the fastest implementations of the Discrete Fourier Transform and has many applications, such as:

- Separating or removing periodical patterns.
- Analyzing and enhancing certain periodical patterns.

Remove Moire from Color Image
The plug-in is developed mainly for B&W images but also works well with some color images after using this little Lunacore trick:

- open image that needs to be fixed
- duplicate image (image/duplicate)
- apply FT filter to the original image
- drag/drop the duplicate with the mouse (while holding down the shift key) to the current document
- use filter/noise/median to blur this color image until pattern disappears
- set blending mode of this layer to color
