LAB sharpen

I do most of my work in the LAB color space. I then convert to other color gamuts as required.  I find LAB useful since it separates color from luminosity so its easier to create masks  such as luminosity or saturation masks.  I have developed  a macro that provides sharpening and color accentuation using the unsharp mask and curves.  In the enclosed macro you can adjust the  separation of the A and B components as you wish, just bring up the curves adjustment to accomplish.  I have also included the selective color adjustment and levels adjustment which I often use to "dial in" the precise colours I want. Just access the  respective adjustments once the macro has run.

Thank you.. but the suffix should be .afmacros, not afmacro.

You import .afmacro (no s) files using the Macro studio panel. 

For a .afmacros (with s) file you would use the Library studio panel.

Thanks, I didn't know that. Is there any advantage using  one or the other?
I did manage to add it to the library.

No advantage either way, that I know of.

Hi Madame,
An afmacro file (without S) is just a bunch of separate steps of a single macro. It's not available for use in the program unless you load it in the Macro panel and run it or save it to the Library for later re-use. afmacros files are the usual way to distribute macros. They can contain more than one macro and remain available for use in the Library after you import them.
