Default Setting for 'Unsharp Mask' (Threshold)...???

Default Setting for 'Unsharp Mask' (Threshold)...???


Was attempting to clean up a photo enlargement last nite utilizing 'Unsharp Mask'...inadvertantly changed the 'Threshold' setting in the dialog window...& failed to notice what this setting was previously engaged at.

[this happens to me every so often, aamof.]

so...I'm using Photoshop CS3. What is the default number for this setting ???

(or...perhaps more importantly...how does one return *all* such dialog settings in Photoshop back to factory default ???)

Thanks very much,

Photoshop CS3 ~ Win XP Pro

Hold the alt key down, this will change the Cancel button to Reset.

While holding down the [Ctrl  Alt  Shift ] keys,
Start > All Programs > Photoshop.  

A MessageBox will ask "Delete the Adobe Photoshop Settings File" to which you answer Yes.

The Preferences file will be rebuilt to factory settings and hopefully your problem is fixed.
