Thanks, Ken.

I agree, it would get annoying (although people can disable the step).

I thought I would check someone else's opinion.

Does anyone have a few examples of the before and after effects this action creates?

Ive not used median very often and cant visualize what it is best used for. I hear a lot of talk about median - but I usually just get a blurred or solarized effect and am not sure if thats all there is - or - it is a means to something else?

What is the beneficial application of median?

What do other people do with it?

Median is about as obtuse to me as high pass, minimum and maximum. They all seem to be one time use - artful kind of filters - but I bet theres more to it than ive got a clue to

You can see an example of the kind of masks the action set generates here:

The median filter is used sometimes in noise removal. A median is a way of averaging pixel values. A median is calculated for a set of observations by sorting them and taking the middle value.
