I mentioned a very prolific poster at DigitalGrin.com naming himself “rutt” (I believe John is his real name). He is a follower, as I am, of Dan Margulis. rutt has offered up his own “DanMargulisPortrait.atn” (link is often dead – see below) — a Photoshop action — in the thread of the Chapter 16 of the Photoshop Lab Color book discussion thread on page 12 (!) of the thread posts. That chapter was the final chapter in Dan’s excellent book, and gave a neat “recipe” for optimizing portraits and any face shots you might have. Rutt’s photoshop action automates the process by stepping you through that same recipe’s moves.
The above is his link to the action from that thread. I’ve also put up a safety backup link on my server – “backup of DanMargulisPortrait.atn“, mostly in response to the fact that this link has died in the past!
As that link is pretty buried in there (I mean, page 12 – yikes!), I wanted to create at least a couple back-links pointing to the post so Google might find it easier!
Read the thread and you will see some pretty nice results demonstrated there from using this technique!
That’s all – I really just wanted to share this with you quickly! Enjoy!
