Useful PS6 actions: De-noise, contrast masking, et al

I ran across this action set... Looks potentially useful.

http://www.2morrow.dk/75ppi/coolpix/actions/

Gobs of tech detail; side-by-side images.

Actions include:
De-noise Deluxe 1.2
Mid-ISO grain
Hi-ISO grain
chromanoise
colour restore
EdgeMask
LuminosityMask
Underexposed
contrast masking
hi-pass sharpening
retrieve L channel

Though not likely you'd run an action during a typical retouch job, I've found that hacking actions helps me better understand filters, filter combos and/or parameter settings I've yet to try. On occasion I stumble on a recipe that's useful in retouch situations. Concepts apply to digital & non-digital images.

Note: These are for PS6; I run 5.5 = I can't test these out.

Feedback, Please! Is this kind of thing worth posting? Too basic? Too mundane? I don't want to clutter forums with what's perceived to be less than valuable stuff.

Thx/DannyR

Danny,

Thanks for the tip. No, it's not too basic. It's good to know that things like this are available.

I agree with Ed, this is a very good thing to post on the forum. I downloaded them to try out.

No, this is great stuff. I use the high pass filter to sharpen facial detail, but hated the 'noise' it makes along with it. The hi pass action uses the despeckle filter after to remove a bit of this which I read on this page. I had been masking out the skin areas and lowering opacity, which made me lose a bit of the affect. The problem I have with this page is that I'd like a more detailed description of the guts of the actions so I could do them myself to see what exactly is happening.

After downloading will I find these actions automatically in my actions palette??

I'm running PS 6 and I had no trouble loading them. I haven't tried them as of yet but they are now sitting in my Actions Palette. Can't see what could be going wrong for you. You might e-mail them and see if they can figure out what's happening.

Thanks DJ. I don't know what the deal is, I tried several things to get it to load, but no luck. Right now I'm struggling with Painter 7. If you or anyone knows anything about it please read my thread under Software. I'm tearing out hair here.

Go to that thread. I gave you some tutorial links. Also there should be a tutorial with Painter 7 on the CD somewhere. There was with Painter 6.

As for the Actions. Try downloading them again. Maybe something happened to corrupt the file while downloading it.
