Bud Guinn actions Hayes Island Cafe

Since the original post got zapped (my fault), I'm reposting this action set that includes Bud's version of the popular David Rowley Hayes Island Cafe effect.

Virtual Painter filter effects

If you have the Jasc Virtual Painter plugin (http://www.Jasc.com) one of the actions in this action set might come in handy...

= = = = =

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.

Chrome action

This action is part of the collection that can be downloaded here:
http://www.geocities.com/kafuensis/

It creates a "chrome-like" effect using a Curves adjustment layer. I got the Curves settings from Linda Vich, hence the name.

On some pics it looks pretty neat, but don't try it on people!

Before:

New Action: Sharon's Bronze Plaque

This is a new action I just wrote. It creates an engraved bronze plaque from your image and custom text.

It can be used for special occasions, birthdays, weddings, anniversaries, poems, quotes, awards and acknowledgements.....just anything you could think of to put on a plaque. 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

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:
http://www.atncentral.com/installing.htm

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.

~Danny~
