Just open your image and start with the first action in the set. It will walk you through preparing your text and then creating the plaque with the second action.

I hope you enjoy it.

Sharon, what a delightful action.....really gives a very unique look...thanks so much for sharing.

Welcome to RetouchPRO, GS...

Once you download/unzip the .zip file, the .atn file needs to be "loaded" into the Photoshop Actions palette before it can be used. Here's how to do that:

1. F9 to display the Actions Palette
2. Top/right of palette... click the arrow to show the menu
3. From the menu choose Load Actions...
4. Navigate to the unzipped .atn file(s)
5. Click on the .atn file name, then click OK. This copies the action set file from your hard disk into the Actions palette.

Check out the built-in help topics on actions. In the PS Help dialog, search on "actions" or "automation."

For a very comprehensive tutorial on PS Actions, check out:

Hope this gets you moving.

actions for frame

I am not in a position to be using the newer versions of Photoshop. I use 5.5 and wonder if anyone has any actions for frames for that version or any other tips and help would be appreciated. If I am in the wrong forum and no one wishes to help then please let me know. tashabug

Welcome, tashabug:

You are definitely in the right place. Unfortunately actions that are compatible with Photoshop 5.0, 5.5 are getting to be very, very difficult to find on the net.

Have you tried the sample frame actions that shipped with Photoshop? Those would be good ones to learn from if you want to start writing your own actions.

Here's a link to some actions that as far as I know are still PS 5.5 compatible:
http://www.liknes.no/photoshop/index.asp

I don't believe there are any "frame" actions among them, but there are numerous "edge" actions that might be of interest.

I hope this gets you moving. Thanks for posting your question.

Painting action

I was sure I'd uploaded this "somewhere," but darned if I can find it.

So here it is again. I used it (along with Impressionist) to render the attached painting. Photo by Stephanie Gaspard.

4-up Andy Worhal like effect

I was tinkering today and came up with a quick/easy way to render a 4-up effect that may be of interest.

Click here for an example of the result.

Each pane can be modified for color or other effect.

Sketch byRo

Click HERE to jump to the thread where the action, crafted by our very own and talented Brazillian resident, Roland, can be downloaded.

I really admire like the approach Roland takes with this action: creating layer filled with various shades of gray and adding layer masks based on color channels. If you dissect his action, you're sure to learn something new.

The attached image was rendered by his action collection. When finished applying Ro's actions, I created a new layer and Alt + Layers > Merge visible.

To the merged layer I applied Photoshop's Rough Pastel's filter, added a little noise and added a Curves adjustment layer so I could tweak the tones a bit.

That's one of the things I like about this sport. You can take a great idea, then add your own custom touches to it.

~Danny~

p.s. And thanks to jaykita for a recent post. I'd completely missed this action when it was originally made available. Too many threads, too little time!

On the right image this action can give you a good start on getting a painted look. If you have the Impressionist plugin, you'll get even better results.

In the attached example:
* Left: Original
* Middle: As rendered by the action
* Right: After duplicating the original background, dragging to the top of the layer stack, setting blend mode to Darken and applying the Impressionist Conte > Faithful style

Have fun!

Mosaic pixel face, Wave, Tile, Mosaic filter

Thanks to member Goldcoin, I was checking out this site:

http://www.lths.org/brady_files/comp....html#projects

...and started to tinker with the "Pixel Face" tutorial:

http://www.lths.org/brady_files/digitalpixelface.htm

I hadn't used the "wave" filter much in the past and I discovered the "square wave" setting rendered some interesting results.

So I started puttering around with an action and came up with one that (to me) has lots of artsy possibilities. In addition to Photoshop's Wave and Mosaic filters, it also uses the Tiles filter.

The attached examples were all "experiments" with the various filter settings and blend modes.

Seems to work fairly well (if you can call it that) on portraits, not so good on scenery-type pics. I preferred the BW results, but color is still possible by clicking off the Channel Mixer adjustment layer.

Have fun.

~Danny~
