  2. For a limited time you can buy Ultra-Sharpen 7.0 Pro at $5.00 off the
    regular price. That makes the e-mail package $10 and the CD package $15.00 +
    $3.00 shipping.

    Ultra-Sharpen is an easy to use package for sharpening your digital images
    with Photoshop. Ultra-Sharpen allows you to control what does and doesn't
    get sharpened and how much is applied to the various areas. It can also
    sharpen your images without sharpening the noise or grain in your images,
    without haloing and without color or exposure shifts.

  4. In these groups, telling the group about one of the best tools in the
    world for fixing fuzzy digital images, just getting better is hardly
    spamming... Or perhaps all your photos are pin sharp and don't need
    adjusting?

    Whatever they need, I won't buy from a spammer. Keep this trash off this NG,
    please.

    I can't speak for any group cross-posted here except rec.photo.digital, and
    it's charter reads:

    1. CHARTER OF REC.PHOTO.DIGITAL

    "This group is for the discussion of all aspects of digital photography,
    including digital cameras, scanners, image manipulation software,
    printers, and CD-ROM technology. All postings made to this group should
    conform to existing Usenet guidelines (see news.announce.newusers for
    guideline documents). This group explicitly prohibits the posting of
    commercial advertisments or other promotional material, whether or not
    it is an any way related to photography. Binary postings (i.e. non text
    postings) are prohibited."

    The value of the product or the current price is irrelevant in that context.

    Given the clarity of that charter only a knucklehead would advertise here
    and only another knucklehead would support them in that, and not expect a
    cursory admonishment.

    Spam is spam, doesn't matter what the "product" is, even if it is
    obviously aimed at someone like you who never gets their images sharp.

    You're a moron. This is good stuff and totally PS specific.
    I bought it so your opinion is negated.

    Since this was brought up....

    I have used both ultrasharpen 6.0 and 7.0 and feel it lost a lot in the
    newer version. They changed from using a "glowing edges" based mask to a
    "find edges" based mask to gain 16 bit support and in the process, it isn't
    nearly as good at finding the objects in an image that need sharpening and
    ignoring the ones that don't. The fact it's an action is nice in that you
    can stop the action using the esc key and take a brush tool to touch up
    either of the sharpening masks and then continue, but the old glowing edges
    version worked MUCH better and never seemed to need this sort of touching
    up or at least not much. Given sharpening should really be the LAST tool
    used on an image, I don't see the use in losing the superior glowing edges
    mask to gain 16 bit compliance when you can't really use the 16 bit info to
    print with anyway.

    I'm sure he got complaints from too many people about wanting 16 bit who
    don't understand image processing. The tool would be a LOT more useful if
    he supplied a 8 bit version/action of the plugin that used the old glowing
    edges type mask.

    So now we are back "on topic"?

    Yes. I have another question. What is it that this tool does that
    can't be done with PS's existing sharpening tools? "control what does
    and doesn't get sharpened and how much is applied to the various areas."
    sounds like something that's easily achieved with a combination of the
    existing smart sharpening filter, layers, layer masks, varying
    opaqueness, history brush, et cetera.

  13. ....

    Just to discuss this point: Why not make a snapshot, convert to 8 bit,
    create the glowing edges mask, copy it to clipboard, return to the 16
    bit snapshot and paste the mask back from clipboard into an alpha
    channel. Or am I missing something important here?
    I ran through the action in an earlier version of ultrasharpen and
    afair the mask is blurred and contrast tweaked afterwards, so that
    subtleties contained in the 16 bit image are lost in the process of
    mask creation anyhow.

    No. The original poster is a spammer who can simply drop dead. The product,
    and it's strengths and weaknesses is irrelevant. This NG is bad enough
    without inviting the GD spammers!

    Oooh! I have a newbie NG Stalker!
    Why don't you hook up with Charter Boy and have a nice circle jerk on the
    Usenet Bill of Rights.
    Oh, by the way, watch out behind you, the head librarian may be watching

  20. I wouldn't talk about trash on this newsgroup. Hell they are talking about
    Gilligan, Would you kill a looter, Land of free my ass and more.

    At least my "spam" was on topic for Photoshop.
