Quick De-cracking Tutorial & Action

Tim, I downloaded the zip file and extracted it to my photoshop actions folder. When I tried to load it, my PShop (version 5.5) refused, saying it was from an incompatible version of PShop. Are you using PShop 6.0? I've been looking forward to your tutorial, so I'm bummed that I haven't been able to make this work yet.

Anyone else been able to successfully load Tim's action?

Thanks Tim. I finally got around to reading the tutorial. The action looks like magic! But I'll wait to download it until I know if it will work with 5.0.

cj, i couldn't either. same message you got. i have 5.5 too. and a mac - will that make it unworkable too, i wonder.

well, tim has certainly made the roadmap well enough for us to make our own action. the other way does appeal to my lazy.

Yes, the action is secondary to the tutorial. In fact, relying on it might actually be an obstacle to understanding the underlying principles.

Thumbs down

OK, I figured it was high time to give this action a whirl. I'm running 6.0 and it worked so I guess it was created for 6.0.
For a downloaded action, it's one of the best documented I've encountered. Tim gives you messages to guide you with enough details so that you know what you're doing. Some actions I've downloaded didn't help you out much at all and are confusing in exactly what they are prompting you for. The results I got were just what his tutorial promised. I used it on the same picture he did and was impressed with the results. It really removed the smaller wide spread cracks with very little compromise to any important details. I have to admit it's a winner even if you have to do the tutorial by hand, you will be pleased with the results.

To Tim
I say thank you for a very valuable action and tutorial. I can see alot of use for this one. A big thumbs up on this one Tim.

OK, I gave it a try on an other photo. Actually 2 photos. First I tried it on a crackled black and white I had of a man at a bar with lots of cracks all through it. It didn't give very noticable results but Tim's tutorial mentions it's not always applicable to all photos. So next I tried it on the Family one in the restoration challenges, #7 Beyond Redemption, and the results I got were quite profound. The large cracks were all that remained.
