Create 3D heads from photographs, and merge two photographs to create one all new 3D head! HeadShop 12 with LoveChild WIN is a standalone app that automatically creates 3D heads from your photographs. HeadShop 12 works with Poser La Femme, and outputs modified morph OBJ files and texture files. HeadShop has been in development since 2007 and regularly introduces features not found in other photo-to-3D software.
You're now listed in Poser Content Directory as a vendor for La Femme And L'Homme. Are these the only two figures Headsop can be used for? I can list you in multiple categories if not.
Is there any way to change the way this program displays? I bought it, but it's unusable on my computer. On my 2560 x 1440 display, a lot of it is unreadably tiny. The text on the bottom isn't, but it's cut off. I don't see any way to access the menu items that are cut off at the bottom. ![headshop.jpg](https://bw-1651cf0d2f737d7adeab84d339dbabd3-forumpro.s3.amazonaws.com/forum_12356/thread_2942253/message_4378188/file_65b9eea6e1cc6bb9f0cd2a47751a186f.jpg) (Photos are just an example, not a morph I was actually trying to make. Though it looks like it could be fun if it worked.)

I was under the impression the program had failed. Same here. Especially since the text was too small for me to read on that first screen. Installation was also kind of a pain, since Windows, in its infinite wisdom, won't allow even administrators to unzip anything into Program Files. (I hate the Windows 10 security measures so much.) I realize there's probably a fairly small market for this product, and you can't expect the kind of bells and whistles normal software has. I'm glad Poser and La Femme are being supported. But HeadShop is unusable on my computer, and switching to a lower, non-native resolution is not a reasonable solution. Unless there's a real solution, I'm going to have request a refund.
Have you tried changing the scale of the programs and apps etc to 100%. I had this problem using a 4k monitor with the recommended scaling of 150% for apps and text. Temporarily changing the scale of those to 100% solved the problem. The developer is aware of the problems with 4k monitors. but told me the solution will not be soon. On a 2560 x 1440 display I find it works fine if the apps and text are set to 100%
Thanks, but I don't think that's a reasonable solution, either. You have to log out and log back in to change the scale, and it completely nukes my desktop. It also makes all my other software unusable. That's a lot of hoops to jump through just to use one program. Then I have to change everything back to use anything else.

Can't you just right click on desktop and change display settings? I can, but then I get a little message saying that it won't take effect until I log off and log on. If I do, my desktop ends up with the icons all arranged, and all so tiny I can hardly see them. It's Windows 10, home edition.
randym, strange when I do that it takes effect instantly, yes it changes the size of icons while in effect, but as soon as I go back to original setting everything goes back to the way it was. I'm on windows 11 home, but with Microsoft update system you never know if any 2 machines are on the same build.

YES!!! There is a "don't show it" button in the lower left hand corner
Dialog scaling is off You see a dialog that looks like this: 1. Right click on your desktop and bring up tyhe „Display Setting” dialog. 2. Change scale to 100%. Restart HeadShop. Your screen should look right: ![Scale.jpg](https://bw-1651cf0d2f737d7adeab84d339dbabd3-forumpro.s3.amazonaws.com/forum_12356/thread_2942253/message_4378394/file_6cdd60ea0045eb7a6ec44c54d29ed402.jpg)
I hate when I accidentally delete messages! LOL To repeat ... The example you show above won't work correctly for UHD monitors. In the example you show above, the monitor is 1920 x 1080, which is why that resolution is recommended. At the recommended resolution, UI scale SHOULD be set to 100%. Using my own case as an example, my video card supports 3820x2160 resolution (or, exactly twice that 1920 x 1080 in width and height), and I have dual monitors. I do a lot of texturing and such and UHD is a boon for that. But, after installing Poser, I go into the application and I see tiny tiny tiny icons, much like what people are reporting for Head Shop. The solution is NOT to change the resolution in Windows, like you show above. Instead, I go into Poser's preferences, and set the UI scale to 2 (or 200%). After restarting, Poser's UI is readable on my UHD monitor, but the scene in the document window is double the size of what I see in 1920 x 1080 resolution.. Changing the resolution in Windows is not an option when most of the applications you have support high resolution monitors and UHD support is a vital part of your workflow. Having to run all my applications at 1920x1080 defeats the purpose of the high resolution monitors. Respectfully, I think the better approach would be for Face Shop to provide a setting, much like Poser does, which allows you to control the UI settings within Face Shop itself.
(1) Any news about when this new version will be available? [AbaloneLLC](https://www.renderosity.com/?uid=506595) posted at 11:29AM Tue, 25 February 2020 - [#4380595](#msg4380595) > Yes!!!
