Greg - at last! advanced techniques and knowledge aimed at professional retouchers, thankyou so much.
I have found these low file size noise layers (none of which I knew about) fascinating and have already used them already. I found your "Modulating noise map" also interesting for analysing retouching and posterisation on flat areas and would like more information on how you arrived at this.
Brilliant - I for one have been very interested by all this - MORE please keep it up

I do not know if it's to late to add a comment, but since I use
noise in my photoshop alot. It is nice to see that someone took the time to make action script to help time and file size. I never knew about size noise layers can be cut in half after watching this pod cast. Thanks for your time in explaining the mechanics in your podcast. Hope to see some new stuff from your podcast soon!
