Re: Razor Sharpening

Hi Rô.

Nice Logic.

The action gives me the error

The Object "Layer Darken" is not currently available - Continue – Stop

Although this is right at the end of the action. Clicking Continue deletes the lighten layer. So the action works OK. Maybe this is a PS7/CS thing.

Ken.

Re: Razor Sharpening

Ken, many thanks for reporting the problem.

You are exactly correct. I had used the one CS2 command that works different in PS7 - well, the one that I know of.

(If anybody is interested it is the merge visible: In PS7 it merges to current layer, in CS2 it creates a new layer)

I have updated the posted action. So now it works in PS7 and CS2 with no problems.

Re: Razor Sharpening

Just what the doctor ordered byro. I use a Warp Sharp Script-fu that gives you some of this aspect but I believe your idea is even better. I'll give it a go.

Edit:

Not only does this method yield pretty good sharpening on portraits, but I do see artistic possibilities with it, but I already see that you have too (other posts).

I have the same problem. It doesn't download completely, then Winzip says "Cannot open. Damaged archive." I have tried several times.

Re: Razor Sharpening

I finally worked out my problem.... I have a downloader. I never had any problems with it at all. So i did not suspected it at first. I just used the old "save target as" and it worked fine....

Re: Razor Sharpening

Syd, Seems that Ev has the answer.

I am attaching a text file printout of the action, so you can and understand how it works.
