Re: Creative Interpretations - Fall Leaves

Don't laugh (or do). The leaf texture immediately made me think of this one.

I'm honored and flattered... Been a while since I wrote that action.

You have inspired me to dust it off!

Re: Creative Interpretations - Fall Leaves

There are over 50 different actions listed in the Action Set "AHB_DannyR DPR ver 07A" and another 10 under "DannyR DPR ver 07B." All with excellent instructions
Studying how different aspects in these actions work has been a great learning aid while trying to figure out how to use this Photoshop thingy...

I understand that in your eyes these may be OLD (Vers 7)... but to me and a multitude of new Photoshop users they are NEW and Fresh and I want to thank you for sharing this great body of work!

I recently downloaded your "Raphael Tiger Sketch" action and used it here on these leaves with a background copy layed on top of the stack at about 50%.. To me it looks like the leaves have been misted

Re: Creative Interpretations - Fall Leaves

re: I understand that in your eyes these may be OLD (Vers 7)

To clarify they're "old" from the perspective that I put that package together going on five years ago. I still use Photoshop 7.0 today. Functionally most of the actions are upward compatible to later Photoshop versions.

FYI: Those DPR collections were the inspiration for www.atncentral.com, developed by Jim Lewis, the site owner/admin. He did not like waiting for each new package / collection, hence the birth of a self-service download site dedicatedd to actions.

re: ... to me and a multitude of new Photoshop users they are NEW and Fresh and I want to thank you for sharing this great body of work!

Thanks for your kind words. I'm glad you are finding them useful. Putting together those packages was a great opportunity from which I learned a great deal. "New" is indeed often times a function of what one learns, not when an action was crafted.

re: Studying how different aspects in these actions work has been a great learning aid while trying to figure out how to use this Photoshop thingy...

Couldn't agree more. You're following a similar path as me.

Dissecting an action, regardless of when it was written, is a great way to learn about Photoshop. Been doing this for years myself. Each action is a little capsule of someone's knowledge.
