Thanks Mitch.

I haven't seen anything on this program you're talking about. Sounds interesting.

I just discovered Alt-ctrl-shift-n-e last week. I was backdooring the same effect but had to experiment every time. Alt-ctrl-shift-n-e is awkward though. Is there a way to make a macro to do the same thing with fewer manipulations? Obviously an action would do it but would be nice to have a one or two key code.

I like the high contrast of the golden one also. Very science fiction-ish, kind of post nuclear disaster book cover. That didn't sound much like a compliment but it was.

You can check out the stuff from AutoFX.

There is no shortcut of which I am aware. Yes, you could make an action, since the keyboard shortcut is just issuing commnds off of the Layer menu.

If you want to use a layer for a filter, you need to use something like alt-ctrl-shift-n-e. You will increase your file size substantially. But, you can go back and redo the effect later by deleting the layer and going forward from that point.

You do need to keep in mind that once you create a layer with alt-shift-ctrl-n-e, any changes you make to underlying adjustment layers will likely be invisible (depending on the opacity, blend mode, etc. for your duplicate layer). The alt-ctrl-shift-n-e combination works like a persistent snapshot (unlike the PS snapshot which does not persist after you unload and then load a file again).

Cheers,

Mitch
