Retrieve smart filter properties from existing PSD

Hi again, 

 

I have an old PSD from like 2022; one of the layers in this PSD is a Smart Filter and has a set of Smart Sharpens on it that I no longer know the settings to bc they came from an old Action which i also no longer have.

 

Do you guys know of any way to view the settings of these existing Smart Sharpen filters? They gotta exist somewhere for Ps to still be able to read them, but if I double click them, they just default to something else.

 

Any help would be appreciated

Ty

Thank you! 

 

I have access to a computer with Photoshop 2022 and even opening the file there messes up the settings. 

 

With one Filter-appllication it might be possible to determine (or at least approximate) the settings, but three Filters makes this extremely hard. 

I think you might be best off starting from scratch. 

 

Have you observed this issue with other files? Only animated ones or »plain« ones, too?

What is the something else they default to? Does the image itself change when you double click?

Yep, the image changes.

Whatever Smart Filter layer I select, knowing that they were different, all default to Amt 200%, Radius 1px.

The whole purpose of a smart filter is that it opens to current settings so that you can modify. Whatever it opens to are the settings applied.

 

Or at least that's how it should work, unless something has been corrupted on the way...

That is what I though too! But it doesn't work that way for some reason.

Thanks. 

But, dang, is the Forum on the fritz again? Didn’t get a notification about your post. 

Edit: In the meantime the notification has arrived. 

 

Unfortunately without the Linked Smart Object I can’t really check if the appearance changes when updating even when I open it in Photoshop 2022 or 2021. 

 

Also applying Smart Sharpen twice seems a slightly peculiar choice.

Oop, sorry about that. Attaching the files to original posts.

 

I know it's odd to apply the same filter twice, but I promise there's a good reason 😄

Yep, seeing the same thing with regular photos too.

I'll rty to approximate it and make a new filter preset.

 

Thank you for testing this out!

 

Best,

Lena

Sorry that I couldn’t help ultimately. 

Please keep a look-out in case this happens again, if you can reproduce the circumstances under which this loss of meaningful Smart Filter-data happens please post a Bug Report. 

Then Adobe personnel might be able to look into this further.

Here's another one just to rule out the file, though I'm getting same results w/ PSDs from various versions of Ps I used in the past year or so.
