CS4 Panels Make Sharpening Easier

There's a new set of Photoshop .SWF panels for Adobe CS4 that consolidate capture, creative, and output sharpening in one small, dockable panel.

http://www.thelightsright.com/files/...Sharpening.png

The functionality comes from the action sets in the TLR Professional Sharpening Actions collection. Instead of choosing from nearly two hundred sharpening actions, you can select the sharpener you want with just a few clicks. SOmetimes all you need is a single click.

The settings are sticky. So, if you use the same settings all the time, they'll be remembered from one session to the next. The panel(s) are dockable. That makes them available anytime you open Photoshop.

All three sets of sharpeners are available from just one panel (which uses a tabbed navigator). If you only want one or two sets -- maybe you use ACR or LR for creative or output sharpening -- there are panels for the individual sets, too. You can even dock them together.

As with all of the TLR tools, this is a free download. .SWF panels are only compatible with Photoshop CS4.

I plan on adding .SWF panels for all of the TLR scripts and nearly all of the TLR Photoshop actions. .SWF panels make it possible to tie together many Photoshop action sets for a comprehensive digital photographer's toolkit.

Enjoy!

Comments and suggestions are welcome!

Cheers,

Mitch

Your tutorials, your hints, and techniques are so good, well thought out and actually work well. This will be a real added bonus to an already impressive array of tools.

Thank you ever so much for sharing your knowledge.

Re: CS4 Panels Make Sharpening Easier

I posted an update today. In the original version, the calls to the Photoshop actions cause the actions to open. This left the Actions palette rather untidy.

I rewrote all of the action calls. They will expand the action set(s). But the actions will run without expanding. This is much tidier.

Re: CS4 Panels Make Sharpening Easier

An update was posted today that enabled Enhanced edge and surface masks. Previous versions included the option, but a bug substituted Luminosity masks in most cases.

Free Webinar

Short notice, I know.

Free Webinar tonight at 8PM ET. We'll discuss the new TLR sharpening and masking panels, practical applications for their effects, how to customize the action settings, and talk about suggestions for new features.

http://www.thelightsright.com/node/922

This will be recorded and available later on the site. If this experiment goes well, there will be more Webinars.

Cheers,

Mitch
