Thanks to Susan Stewart for help and beta testing (I didn't get all of her suggestions in for the deadline for this package -- so don't blame her!).
Please feel free to discuss tools, use and other improvements on the forum!
I signed up last Friday night and have not received anything from
Power Exchange. Thought maybe it was just me. Maybe a little premature advertisement. Guess we will just have to wait on Richard to post on hidden powers site.

Mac users have to wait a few hours more...my mac is behind some wet concrete that needs to set.
Excellent! I especially like the shadow mask and highlight mask, don't know how I did without them before. Fade effect looks promising but I haven't really got the hang of it yet. Can someone please explain exactly how the fade works and the purpose? Richard thanks for all your effort. CaseyJ
Fade should work like this:
Apply a filter (or really a change to the image of any kind)
the image will be set up so you can use opacity on the Fade Control layer to fade the effect you just added.
SO, say you apply a blur filter and you say to yourself: "Self, that is too much. I'd like something between that and what I had before. " You can use Fade at 50% instead of redoing the filter. But, instead of giving you a result that is just a 50% gaussian Blur, the fade blends the new with the old at 50% -- which is a different effect than applying 50% of the blur radius.
I should have added more instruction for that one. Feel free to discuss here.
You can also do some fun stuff with fade, like fade to a different blending mode - you'll see this step sometimes in tutorials for the full version of PS. For example you can use unsharp mask and then fade, and change the blending mode of the fade layer to darken and fiddle with the percentage- on some images this looks better than the plain USM - you still get some sharpening but you don't get the white halos around objects. (trees silhoutted against a sky and eyelashes seem to respond well to this for example).
