Tried download twice but didn't work. Could be because I'm trying to read Canadian BSB charts from C.H.S. instead of the NOAA charts from the U.S.A. I thought they'd be the same. Now I can't find it to uninstall it although there is a record of it being downloaded in my downloads file.

I have not been able to download any of the maps as bsb or kap files. Tried uninstalling arcview 9.3 several times. The download of your plugin does not install properly. I also bought and ran the registry repair progam by Uniblue that was suggested as a cure for this. I have spent a day and a half trying to get an NOAA map in a usable form and have not succeeded. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Simple & works

Very simple to use allowed me to just drag and drop KAP files onto photoshop. I was a bit confused at first because it didn't allow me to open the BSB files but then I realized that these didn't actually contain the images.

Someone else commented that the resolution was not good.
I don't understand this because it opens the charts at exactly the same resolution they are saved in.
Any change in resolution would be done in Photoshop.

All in all it does exactly what it says it will do.
I would definitely recommend this plugin!

Didn`t like BSB import

I tried the version that shows the checkerboard pattern. Looking between the black blocks at the actual chart image, that image lacks the resolution my Maptech chart viewer provides. The colors also are not as saturated. These effects are quite noticeable when the chart is resized to less than full size.

I currently use a command line utility (Bsb2png) from the internet to convert from BSB format to PNG format. I can then work with the chart image with Photoshop by loading the png format. That scheme works without losing the qualities of the original chart image but is rather labor intensive. I often use Photoshop to save the chart in bmp or jpg format.
