Does anyone know this action please?

My computer was broken for ages, and when it was repaired I had lost all my actions.

Here's an edit I did a while back. Does anyone know what this action is called, or even better, where I can possible find it again?

I really like it!

Canna, looks much like the plugin vivacity from Topaz labs or maybe this one http://www.reindeergraphics.com/inde...d=33&Itemid=56

Hi amica, thanks for the feedback. I don't think it's the Topaz one, because it was a freebie. I also don't think it's the other one, because it was very straightforward to use. Many thanks for the input though ....

I would say the first step was a dupe layer set on soft light, opac. around 50%.
The second might have been a very strong USM, followed by Anisotropic (Filter > Stylize > Diffuse). Hopefully this will help you find the action again...
Good luck,
Sylvia

They have free actions and hopefully you'll be able to find yours there.

What do you think of using this one, "Dave's Simplifier version 2". I have it in my Photoshop CS4.

Palms' "Fake Smudge Action" comes pretty close.. especially if you were to use the noise removal filter prior to using the smudge filter, as Palms suggests (which I did not)

It does look like a combination of sharpening and aniso.
Topaz clean comes close.

I did this one using the settings as indicated on the other image. Is it close enough, don't know. Did it wholly in Photoshop.

Yours looks very close, I think. Good job!
