ALCE Test Action

What is this Action for

ALCE test Action is a Photoshop action which automatically creates eight ALCE layers with different radius values, from 1 to 350.

You can choose ALCE to be applied with or without Turbo (Softer) option to see the difference between the two methods.
From the direct comparison between the different layers you will learn how different radii work better than every theoretical explanation.
