Ok I get it now.

Re: Automatic Skin Smoothing.

To make things clear about the "Apply"... - it is not relevant in this case.

I want to point out that Sean Baker also uses HP when it comes to this technique.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d0IrnjfCgPQ

However he uses Contrast -50, which will leave noise and if not used as an adjustment layer introduces luminosity shift (something he failed to notice).

Control of the alpha truncates the noise that is between 127/128 to clean smooth 127.
since the goal is to leave a smooth mid-gray I find my way superior. However if you like to show it is not with an example, I will gladly correct the implementation to whatever works best.

Re: Automatic Skin Smoothing.

sorry, forgot to clarify that it's on the Facebook page:
http://www.facebook.com/pages/Photon...49810035060099

keeping the links in one place like this makes it easier to keep it all up to date

Re: Automatic Skin Smoothing.

Shadow, I think you need to check the new code. At least on my Mac is not working. Sliders seem to be working fine but there is no processing, there are no changes on the image, no matter what I do.

Regards

Re: Automatic Skin Smoothing.

yes... I found out there's a problem... you must be using CS4
CS4 has problems with v.2.0, I'll make a version for CS4 in a day or two

Re: Automatic Skin Smoothing.

CS4 version of v.2.0 is uploaded

http://www.mobilefiles.ca/SkinSmooth....v.2.0.CS4.zip

it's slightly slower than the CS5 version, but should work on CS4
(let me know if you have problems with it)
