I have posted a free set of three JavaScripts written for Photoshop CS and Photoshop CS2. The scripts will run on both the Windows and Mac platforms.

The scripts are based on a three-pass sharpening philosophy, although they can also be used for single-pass or two-pass sharpening.

I engineered the scripts to include the best features of commercial sharpening tools, like Focal Blade and Photokit Sharpener. Features include:

• Sharpen with Smart Filter or USM sharpening.
• Sharpen edges and surfaces separately (or either alone).
• Sharpen light and dark pixels separately.
• Generate masks using luminosity or enhanced color boundaries.
• Brush in creative sharpening/blurring.
• Haze Reduction.
• Blend If settings protect highlights and shadows.
• Select from presets or take control over settings.
• All sharpening is done non-destructively using layers.
• User-configured default settings
• Optionally suppress the UI and run the scripts in batch mode
without any user intervention.

There is also a 24-page, full color .PDF manual.


The download is 3.7 MB. My site has limited bandwith, so please try again if you experience connection delays. This is likely to be a popular download.

Do you have a Photoshop Elements Compatable version? I have version 1. Also I recently tried GIMP and was wondering if such actions/scripts work with GIMP?
