Nice catch, Carole. Definitely a nifty effect and a lot of fun to play with.

Re: Pencil Pixels Vol1 actions updated.

For those who have bought PP Vol1, if you contact PP from their site and ask for the details of discount for existing users: the nice people at PP will Email you with details of the discount (25%). They also include a link and password to the updated Vol1 actions.

The updated bundle is renamed - so you don't have to delete your old ones.

In action some - but not all the actions leave the layers displayed after completion. Which means you can switch them off or modify them as you wish.

Re: ACTIONS, Photo-Art Photoshop ACTIONS: The Moth

Hi Mitch
Saw your info about an updated Vol 1 of Pencil Pixels. Went to their site and couldn't find anything about an update to Vol 1 but I did see a vol 2 and some other combinations now available. Is that what you were seeing?

By the way - if someone has purchased the actions they can easily turn off any merging of layers (normally right near completion of the actions steps) - by turning off the check mark next to the step. CAREFUL - there may be merging earlier in the process that shouldn't be turned off - results could be unpredictible.

Anyone experienced in reviewing and understanding the steps within an action shouldn't have any problems.

Regards

Bob Mc

Re: ACTIONS, Photo-Art Photoshop ACTIONS: The Moth

Hi Bob,
The site Is displaying their Volume 2 actions, but also mention a discount for vol1 owners. If you contact them from their site (top right button), requesting details of the discount; they will Email you back with details. The FREE updated vol1 link is included.
Well worth the effort!

Deckle Edge Frame Action by Mike Warren

Action set has two different actions. The second action adds a Deckle Edge without the white border.

You can adjust the color of the background using the Hue/Sat Adjustment Layer and adjust the size and strength of the drop shadow using the layer style. Action will work with images of any size/resolution using Photoshop PS7, CS, CS2 or CS3.

Have fun!

Download Action from here

IMPORTANT: As of February 2004, there are two versions of Virtual Painter: 3.0 and 4.0.

You MUST play the action that corresponds to the version of Virtual Painter you have installed. The VP3 action is not compatible with VP4; the VP4 action is not compatible with VP3.

= = = = =

These actions:
* Duplicate the current image and flattens the copy
* Apply each of VPs 12 filters to copies of the Background layer, plus generates two extra layers based on the black strokes (only) rendered by the Collage and Drawing filters

Virtual Painter 3.0 is not "action friendly." When you record an action that includes commands executing a VP 3 filter, the settings applied when the action is played are the ones specified the last time that filter was applied, which may not be the ones that were recorded.

This is not a problem with VP4 actions.

Anyway, have fun with this.

~Danny~

Hi Danny,
Got any actions for VP 5 ?

No... VP 5 "didn't do anything for me," so I passed on it.

There was a 7a, but no 7b.

7a = 7, less a couple actions VG contributed that he later wanted removed.

Can't believe that as of August 2009 it will be 5 years since that action pkg was posted for download.

Re: New Wooden Frames Wooden Mattes

Thank you for the frames. I have learned from going though them. Thank you to all who post your work, it helps me learn and understand better ways to use filers and affects. Thank you.

If this post does not make sense, I do not just push play on actions I go though them step by step and read them to learn more about how to do things better or just to learn from scratch.

Hello MsChellie and welcome to RetouchPro. Glad you found some of those actions useful and educational.

Your comments make a whole lot of sense to me. Like you I dissect actions as a means of learning. With "So much to learn, but so little time," I'll take every shortcut I can get, including picking the brains of crafty action authors!

If you've not yet discovered www.atncentral.com, jump over and take a look... You'll find many actiions to feast on, including a few I contributed.

Thanks for your kind words. Hope to see you on the forums here at RP.

Re: ACTIONS, Photo-Art Photoshop ACTIONS: The Moth

Let the wayback macine be your friend. Just downloaded a caricature action for test and it worked. I chose 2011, but there's plenty of years to choose from.
