The random number settings defaulted into the tool are presets that I coded in based on what artists most commonly preferred. This way an artist can polish an artwork with usable settings in a single click and not have to worry about the sliders or settings.
For each option, the tool is programmed to take all visible layers and copy them to make a new, merged layer that the tool is applied to. This will preserve the original document and allow for easy comparison of the before and after.
Sharpen utilizes Smart Sharpen. Chromatic Aberration mimics the photography effect that most photographers try to avoid but can add a stereo effect to an artwork and give it the perception of depth/photo realism. Noise creates a new layer, applies a random fill color, applies noise at 400%, places the layer setting to Overlay, and the slider effects the opacity of that layer.
The second section covers many settings that are needed for print. Since printers tend to print dark, you can change your brightness and contrast here. If you check both boxes at the same time, it makes a combined layer named brighten/contrast, otherwise individual application will give each their own named layer.
The last section gives the user save options that work as a shortcut. Each option that is checked will save, without prompting, to the location of the original Photoshop file using the file’s name with the extension of the chosen file types. If you do it more than once without changing your PSD name, it will automatically overwrite the first file that it created.
Clicking Apply All does not also apply the Save options to lend more control to the artist. It does, however, apply all of the filters from the first two sections that have check boxes.
This tool will be available on Gumroad in the near future. This page will be updated with the link when it has been published!
