I use Photoshop CS3
1) Open a photo and duplicate the layer.
2) Go to Filter > sharpen > unsharp mask
3) In the box that open, use the sliders. Amount: 7% Radius: 250 pixels Threshold: 0
If you need a bit more punch, repeat this action. Use the opacity slider on the copied layer to control the look .
Here and in Elements Village I see some amazing figures used in Unsharp Mask , particularly when trying to eliminate a blue haze. I have been trying High Pass lately to add that extra something to pics, I must try the above though.
I have a question relating to the reference to "recorded as an action" - What does this mean? Is it a sequence of commands recorded somehow and can I do that with PSE6?
Great idea for a thread - hope it grows!
