I was recently asked by a fellow photographer if i knew of a way to sharpen each layer in a PSD file for a Queensberry album. After racking my knowledge of Photoshop for several seconds i came up with this solution for him. It’s not a 100% complete solution but should save some time by automating the process for each PSD.
#1 start with one of the PSD files
# 2 Make a new folder for your action (this will allow you to save it off when its finished)
# 3 Make a new action (i’ve called it Multi Layer Sharpen, but you can call it what you like
#4 With the action recording, hold Alt/Option and hit the ] key, this will select the layer above (note it does this without selecting a named layer)
(i’m not a JS script wizard so i don’t know a way to do this so it detects how many layers you have and runs it that many times..)
