Here's an action that creates a neat oil painting-like effect. The secret is Photoshop's Craquelure filter with settings of 2,0,0.

It works especially well on images rendered with the Impressionist plugin.

In the attached before/after example the action was played 2 times to double the effect.

IMPORTANT: Bug identified and fixed. Thanks. Mike Warren. for your help.

Have fun!

help from the experts please

Hello graphic pros:

I am not as experienced with Photoshop as I am Illustrator, but I'm learning
I saw this cool action for the "wooden frames" and thought they would look good around our band pics. However, when trying to apply a frame, I get the error message: "could not complete the command because the selected area is empty." Again, I'm just learning this complex program and am lost! Could/would any of you nice people lend your assistance here?!? Thank you for your patience.

Hi Russell, and welcome to RetouchPRO...

re: Just getting started with PS
Believe me, we've all been in your shoes. You have many fun days ahead.

A couple things to try...
* If the image you're working on has multiple layers, duplicate the original, flatten the duplicate and apply the action to the flattened duplicate.
* If that doesn't fly, try using the rectangular selection tool and make a selection of the portion of the image you want framed, including ctrl + A (for select all) prior to launching the action.

If neither of these work, click my name above and send me an e-mail (not PM) and I'll help you debug it.

~Danny~

another -perhaps- stupid or even illegal question

Hi everyone,

especially Danny, long time no see
I see you're still the fountain of wisdom for all of us LOL

I'm cleaning up and doing long overdue back-ups on the puter and as I'm sure everyone of you has, I have collected a mass of actions and brushes from different sources. Recently I have found a brushes viewer - you see the picture of the brush - without launching photoshop - and it's much easier to go through. Does anybody know if something like that exists for actions. I have opened some actions with notepad and there is a great amount of text visible. It is very difficult to read and I know about the ctrl-alt-save feature to save an action in text. It helps off course butI still have to load all the actions in PS and save etc. I'm lazy that's it! LOL
It might even be illegal to try this, I don't know?

I'm sure a lot of people would be interested in something like this.
Maybe someone clever can even make it?

thanks a bunch for reading, listening and perhaps even thinking about a solution for this


gina

Hi Gina,
I don't know of a program that does that, but ActionDex is another program that makes thumbnails of what a picture would look like after being processed.
You can download a trial version on that site.
Good luck,
Sylvia

Hi Gina...

Sylvia made the same suggestion I would have made. ActionDex is a very useful add-on for managing actions (folders within folders, for example).

Hope all is well with you. Stop in anytime.

thx Silvia and Danny,

Hi girls and guys,

thx for the actiondex suggestion. I have downloaded the trial and I will check it out when I have the time LOL.
Hope everything is well with you all too.
Since I changed from working 50% to 80% I'm more stretched for time than before. A day needs at least 48 hours t do the things I want to do

greets to everyone
enjoy

gina

Impressionist action (no plugin needed)

Hi all

This is my first message here, I used to visit this forum to learn from some worthy posters... and now decided to take the step

I've just made a little action that gives an impressionist paint look and would appreciate any feedback either positive or negative, just to let me know what you think, no plugin is needed, only photoshop

Here it is Impressionist action or download the .zip attachment below. It contains the .atn file as well.

here is an exemple before/after images (attachments)

Kind Regards to you all
