My answer is the same as my response in the last thread you started asking about CS4.

It sounds like you use the sharpening tools. That's good to hear. I think you'll like the new versions even better. You'll have to look for them at the new site: www.thelightsright.com (external link) (I just split the two URLs, that's all.)

I started using the scripts since version 1.0 for Photoshop CS. Been following the updates. Now at version 2.0. All great stuff, Mitch. Just posted a note in the Yahoo group. Thanks for all the efforts.

I been using CS4 for 2 days, if I had to do over I would have waited for a patch before I purchased. I was running CS2. It was a lot faster. After tweaking performance settings in CS4 it does launch faster than CS2. But it is slower in drawing. I'm running xp with a 7800 GTX geforce. When enabling with OpenGl it did help a little.

I'm still using CS2 on a MAC. It's time to upgrade. I use bridge a lot and I'm wondering if that is still part of CS4, or does Lightroom replace that function?

Yes, bridge is included in CS4. The new bridge version is faster and better than CS2 version

Thanks for all the efforts.

Quoted for truth.

Very nice scripts.

Cool. I just added a new sharpener. Your comments were the stimulus.

I couldn't get the updates done overnight, but I could create a new TLR Portrait Sharpener. It's he most sophisticated sharpening action that I've shared to date.

You gave me the friendly nudge. Thanks. Enjoy!

Photoshop CS4 64-bit is much faster on my 8GB system than CS3 was. Unfortunatly plug-ins do not work in 64-bit version.

I am not going to upgrade to CS4 until they get the bugs worked out.

I borrowed a friend's disk and installed Photoshop cs4 as a trial and it was way too laggy for me.

My PC is pretty strong. (4 gigs of ram, two 500 GB hard drives, a quad core Q6600 cpu, HD4850 video card.) and it was still very laggy.

All drivers were the latest versions, I tried all kinds of different settings under the performance tab to no benefit so I will be looking for a patch that fixes this but until then I will not upgrade.

On the other hand cs3 performes great for me.

See what you started, cfcRebel?

The TLR Portrait Sharpener has been downloaded over 400 times since Thu.

I wrote a new creative sharpener this morning that's targeted for landscapes. This one has three USM sharpening effects. USM for light and dark pixels with the dark pixels getting more aggressive settings followed by a round of local contrast enhancement (LCE) to reduce haze and give your landscapes some extra POP.

Enjoy!

Awesome Mitch! Will give that a shot. Also, if you happen to create a TLR Wildlife/Birlife Sharpener action I would love to try too, expecially if the sharpening only targets the subject's surface and not the OOF background. Currently with the TLR Sharpening Toolkit, I have to erase the sharpening effect on the OOF area for all Capture, Creative, and Web scripts.

Do any of you download Photoshop for free? I don't know anyone personally that has actually bought a computer program, so I'm asking.
