I should have been more clear. I start to record my action after I have completed my selection with the pen tool: I click on the area around the mirror with the pen tool and complete my work path. I then start to record my action, right-click with the pen tool and choose 'Make Selection', and then the dialog box appears: It's at that point where I can enter "0" (or whatever feather radius I need). After I enter the value, I make a layer mask and then delete the work path. The action looks like this in the "Actions" panel: @JJMack - I don't need to record the dropping of the points, just the part after where I convert the path to selection. (I know that's not what you implied that I did, I just wanted to be clear.) Unfortunately the pen tool is the only tool that gives me the option to make clear curves along with straight lines. @Jeff Arola - it looks like your solution works! When I use the method of holding down the 'Alt' key and clicking 'Load path as selection', it records the feathering: Thank you to all who replied!

I've recorded action where I use the pen tool to select an area, make a selection, enter '0' for feather radius, click 'OK', then create a layer mask. When I run that action on a photo, the action always uses the last value entered into the feather radius box, not the '0' value I entered when creating the action. Does anyone know how to force this value to always be zero?
