I've updated my Web Sharpener Script for Photoshop to version 0.8. You will need Photoshop CS2 or higher to run it.
New features ...
*) Improved downscaling algorithm that uses more than 2 steps now and considers the image size. If you liked the previous algorith, you can select this option as well.
*) Better edge masking to prevent halos more efficiently.
*) Some bug fixes.

The ZIP-files includes both a German and an English version of the script plus the documentation in PDF-format.
As there are quite a few medium format and large format shooters here -
I was often asked to make a tutorial about manual blending of exposures in Photoshop without the use of HDR (which I never use anyway). In the process of the relaunch of my new website, I posted and article and a video-tutorial there descriping my process. Unfortuntely the article is written in German only, but the video is quite helpful as well and just contains an audio track without any odd German talking :)
There's an action I used which is one of the luminosity masks of Tony Kuyper, a fellow photographer from the US. Go there and ge them - they are only $10 and very helpful in many ways. Here's the link ... http://www.goodlight.
It took Google a while until they managed to get Google+ going for Google Apps users like me. I always followed the development and prefer it much more to Facebook now, as they appreciate the quality of presentation that artists and photographers are looking for. Their gallery is wonderful.
So please - if you like to follow my work, add my page to your circles. Thank you.
