Thanks for asking Sweet-P. I should have updated the link in my first post back when I found the new link that BK pointed you to. I've now updated the link in the first post as well.

Custom Smart Sharpening

I downloaded JB's custom smart sharpening .atn and found it to be fabulous. I installed it on my desktop (mac) and laptop (mac) as well (PS 6). I even took it in to work to install it on our (pc), PS 5.5, but I got an error message saying something to the effect that it was not compatible with that version. Any one have any suggestions on how I can add it to my workflow at work? Is it possible to print out the steps in the .atn?

Christo, from the help system, presuming v6 or higher:

>> Press Ctrl+Alt (Windows) or Command+Option (Mac OS) when you choose the Save Actions command to save the actions in a text file. You can use this file to review or print the contents of an action. However, you can't reload the text file back into Photoshop <<

Then decipher and rebuild the action in v5.x (which is why I build my actions in v5.x as it is still in wide use in production settings).

On the subject of sharpening:

Stephen,
When I go into PS6 and highlight the action, do a control option, the save actions command is grayed out.

Smart Sharpening

I realise that this is an old thread but I just downloaded and installed the Smart Sharpening action into PS7.1 and when I run the action it says that the Black Channel is not available consequently the action does not work fully and seems to stick . Has anyone any clues to what could be the problem?Thanks for any help

Peter, The action probably refers to the Black channel at some point when your version of Photoshop needs the Gray channel - there's some inconsistency between versions.
