Free High Definition Photoshop Sharpening Action

I would LOVE to be able to give each and every one of you a HIGH DEFINITION TV (HDTV) for the holidays.  But since that is not feasible, I have decided as my gift to all of you, to make you a HIGH DEFINITION Photoshop Sharpening Action Set!


There are two fully adjustable, intense sharpening Photoshop actions. “MCP High Definition Sharpening” is for use on print images.  “MCP Crystal Clear Web Resizing & Sharpening” is for 900px wide web images.  You can re-record the image size if you need slightly larger or smaller.  Remember that sharpening is based on individual photographs, resolution of the image, and detail in the image.  As such, these are very adjustable, but still may not work on every image.  These two actions are compatible with Photoshop 7, CS, CS2, CS3 and CS4.

Thank you for all of your support of my blog.  I would love if each of you can tell 3+ photographer friends to come here and download this action too. Spread the word.  And enjoy!

    Thank you very much! I can’t wait to try it out. Enjoyed visiting your site and reading the pages and checking out the pics. Very nice!

    I must confess at first I wasnt sure how to use actions. I had used PS for over 3 years and I thought I knew all about it. So this was a cool gift, first because it made me learn how to use actions.
    Any gift that makes you learn new things are great, and any gift that makes you realize there are always corners in your software you need to use are better.

    Thanks for the action. I did a photo to show you what I did, but it seems I can’t upload pics on this comment section.

    Thank you. I have lots of actions that I rarely use but these are awesome.
    They are easy to use. I will be looking at your other actions. I have not bought many actions because I have not had much success with them. Love these!!!

    When I initially commented I clicked the -Notify me when new feedback are added- checkbox and now every time a remark is added I get 4 emails with the identical comment. Is there any approach you’ll be able to take away me from that service? Thanks!

Seguramente lo hara casi automáticamente. Ahora supongamos que ese mismo chef pudiera darte no solo su receta sino también toda su experiencia, el resultado sería que te quedaría el platillo tan bien como a el. Por ese motivo Jodi en MCP nos está regalando una acción para volver las fotos en fotos más precisas y brillantes. Gracias Jodi. Obtén la acción gratis aquí. […]
