New Frames/Actions for Elements Users

To all, I have completed a new set of frames and actions, these have now been modified for Elements 1 & 2. This set requires the installation of the previous set of actions for Elements...this set can be downloaded here:

http://www.retouchpro.com/forums/sho...&threadid=5221

HIDDEN POWERS NOTE: If you have installed Richard Lynchs' set then you probably shouldn't install this into the welcome screen as this will overwrite some of his files. You can install these into the Recipes area and shouldn't have any problems with Richards HP stuff.

If you have only used my previous set, then you should be able to put these in either place with no problems. This set also includes thumbnails of the Frame actions for both places. The ones in the Recipes area are considerably larger.

The set includes a set of oval frames...both wood and matte....they can be used in the landscape mode or portrait mode.

There are three wood types, and all have the same functionality. I have a complete set of examples available here:

http://www.pbase.com/budguinn/new_actions_frames

The set also includes some Window frames to put your picture in for display. All come in wood but can be easily modified to color...instructions are in the action.

And, there are a few other things
Award Achievement Plaque...to send/email to someone....for grins.
The little brass plaque with rivets.

Again a special thanks to Ling Nero for helping with the html stuff and making a set of thumbnails.
Ling also has an add on set of thumbnails for the 26 Paint/sketch actions and the Photo Enhancement actions that are in the original set. You can get these enhancements and install instructions (very nice thumbnails) here:

http://www.geocities.com/rnlnero/PE2stuff.html

I should take this moment, also, to thank Danny Raphael for all of his help on the first set......and all of the many people who had written the actions in the "Mother of All Collections" that many of the actions were taken from. When the author was known I tried to give them the credit for the action....thanks again.

I hope everyone finds these fun and helpful

comments are always welcome

Sketch Effects by David Vance

Attached is a set of three actions created by David Vance, each of which generates a sketch effect unlike most you've probably seen before.

Here are a couple of examples from his gallery:
http://www.pbase.com/dazzy/sketches

According to David, "The Sketch action seems to work best on people and images that aren't too complicated.

"The 'Sketch Too' action seems to work better on images that are busy. Also they both were made to work on 300ppi images. Lower resolution images turn out kind of muddy."

Thanks for sharing with us, David!

Bill Richardson's Rosewood Frames

Bill is another of those crafty action writers who graciously shared his handiwork to be posted here at RetouchPRO.

This is a two action set: One for a rectangular version and another for an oval version.

WARNING:
To achieve unique results, each action has several embedded STOP commands with instructions the user is expected to carry out. These instructions may be confusing to those new to Photoshop.

Because of the numerous action pause and continue sequences, these will not work in PS Elements since Elements does not have an Actions Palette which is necessary to restart paused actions.

- - - - - -

Bill: Thanks for your generosity. Your skills are to be commended.

New Edge Effects Actions for Elements

Announcing a new set of actions for Photoshop Elements Users.

This is a set of "edges" that can be put around a photograph and stand alone or then be framed.

This edge collection is from:
Ingve Moss Liknes:
http://www.liknes.no/

He has graciously allowed me to alter his fantastic edge actions to work within Photoshop Elements.

You can see an example of the thumbnails that are included with the package here:

http://www.pbase.com/image/14790709

I had to modify these from the original...any screwups are all mine, any praise goes to Ingve.

These work best with images larger than 500pxl...they will work with smaller sizes but sometimes give odd results...play with it, you can always delete.

Your image will be protected, the action starts by duplicating your original and working off of the duplicate.

Unzip the folder....This package is designed to be used in the Recipes Area of Elements 1 or Elements 2...PC or Mac

You must have installed my previous sets first...they can be gotten here...this will not work without these sets first installed in order, as below, into the Recipes/How to area.

http://www.retouchpro.com/forums/sho...&threadid=5221
http://www.retouchpro.com/forums/sho...7117#post47117

The original interface was written by Ling Nero and she has supplemental thumbnails and other goodies for the Paint/sketch and the Photo enhancements that are included in the first set you can get these supplemental thumbnails at her site:

http://www.geocities.com/rnlnero/PE2stuff.html

Interesting quirk in Elements....you must click anywhere to close the Recipes menu when running actions, or it may effect the final effect...start the action and after the stop messages..just click the upper menu.

Download the set here:

David Jaseck Sketch Action

David implements a novel twist in this action to achieve a creative interpretation of a "sketch effect."

Thanks, Dave, for sharing another of your terrific creations.

Pen&Wash Action

Hi, I have been redirected here by Danny Raphael because I posted a photo processed using an action I developed based on a tutorial by Gregory Georges, on Photo-Art 101, http://www.retouchpro.com/forums/sho...&threadid=5373
and Danny suggested I share it here.

It includes a texture which I got from scanning heavy watercolour paper and then loading it, so I don't know what will happen when the saction comes to it anf you haven't got it - I guess it will stop! I wish I could have uploaded the texture image as well but it's quite big. But if anyone is interested let me know and I'll email it.

I must make it clear that I'm a newbie, so many of you wonderful people will find it quite crude. Any suggestions to improve it will be most welcome.

I hope this has been helpful.

Lawrence

I modified the action not to look for the custom texture you mention above since no one but you has it. The absense of this texture caused the action as written to display a real nasty message, which would be confusing to a lot of people. - DannyR

----------
Following some very helpful and inspiring suggestions/recommendations from Danny, I have improved the action, making it more easy to adapte to individual tastes. I am herewith replacing it with the latest version.
Any comments will be much appreciated.

Lawrence

Dave Jaseck Collection of Actions

This is a collection of Actions Written by Dave Jaseck

Dave has graciously allowed me to make these workable in Photoshop Elements 1 and 2...this revised set of actions will also work in Photoshop.

The originals by Dave worked flawlessly.....if you find they don't work that way now please curse me.

This set includes 20 different actions that Dave has released previously. It contains:

Five different sharpening actions
Six IR/sepia/contrast masking actions
Two of his famous matte actions
Seven of his paint/sketch actions, including the new "no name" action

I hope you will enjoy these.
______________________________

Install stuff:

Unzip the folder....This package is designed to be used in the Recipes Area of Elements
1 or Elements 2.

You must have installed my previous sets first...they can be gotten here...this will not work without those sets installed into the Recipes/How to area.

http://www.retouchpro.com/forums/sho...7117#post47117
http://www.retouchpro.com/forums/sho...7589#post47589

The original interface was written by Ling Nero and she has supplemental thumbnails and other goodies for the Paint/sketch and the Photo enhancements that are included in the first set. You can get these supplemental thumbnails at her site:

http://www.geocities.com/rnlnero/PE2stuff.html


If you install all of the packages you will have over 145 actions available in a format that is, quite frankly, nicer than the original Photoshop method....thumbnails and all. And they
don't take up that much room.

Hi everybody, I finally got a chance to play around in PS today (ive been very busy lately, tons of work, school, plus upgrading computer) so I messed around a bit and came up with a couple actions:
1. Cracked paint - well it's pretty much self explanatory by the name, it's just a an attempt to create a kind of gooy cracked paint effect.

2. Blocky art - I was playing with the extrude and maximum / minimum filters and this thing just kind of happened...

both of these actions definitely are going to require a fair bit of tweaking (i.e. adjusting transparencies) to look good on various kinds of images, so far I've found the both generally work fairly well on images of flowers, fruit etc. with a fair bit of contrast and lots of color.
enjoy!

- David

Original attachment replaced because the apostrophe in the filename (DK's_actions.zip) was causing download problems. - DannyR
