Photo Art Photoshop ACTION: Bill Miller's Antique Stipple Engraving

This action set was crafted by Bill Miller. Thanks, Bill!

Click HERE to be taken to a thread where this action is further described and where you can view example output.

The actions in this set run under PS6, PS7.

IMPORTANT:
There are five actions in this action set. Each must be run as a separate step. You'll need to decide between a pair of actions which is most appropriate for your image (5"x7" or less, 8"x10" or larger).

Be sure to run the action named "Introduction" first. It has additional instructions.

- - - -
Action set updated 1/31/03 to version 2, enabling the user to specify DPI (resolution). At the time of this update the original set had been downloaded 743 times.

Hi Danny
I just got back from a trip and loaded stipple engraving action.. I thought it looked interesting..this action does not work for me..When I loaded it, It would not run so I tried line by line to run it but it kept stopping..I noticed that it put about 5 lines in the button mode menu instead of 1..there was no title to it..the first line was "introduction"..I dont know what happened so I removed it from the file (I was using my spare actions file not the photoshop actions file so as not to mess up my menu like so many others complained about.) But it is still there when I load photoshop..

How can you remove one action from photoshop without removing all of the others..I never did this before..I see the reset option..Is that what you must do??

On a non related note, I remember you speaking one time about PS7.0 having the capability to use a programming language or something like that to write actions..Can you tell me the name of that aspect of action writing..

Thanks in advance
Jerry

Hi Jerry:

Thanks for posting your question. 20-20 hindsight: I should have put more emphasis on the fact that there are 5 actions within this set (instead of the typical one), hence multiple entries in your action button mode menu. (I'll revise the verbiage in the post in a minute to clarify this.) Each action must be run separately.

RE: Removing actions from the PS environment
1. Actions palette menu: Button Mode (must be off). This will change the "look" of the actions palette.
2. Click the triangle next to the action set name to reveal the action(s) inside it (if not already revealed).
3. To remove an individual action from the actions palette, drag the action over the trashcan icon at the bottom of the actions palette. To remove an entire set of actions, click on the action set name and drag the action set over the trashcan icon.
4. Actions palette menu: Button Mode (set on) will put you back into button mode.

If you want to remove the actions from your computer completely, the .atn you downloaded and unzipped will have to be deleted separately -- just as you would delete any file: Navigate to it, and either click and drag the file to the Windows trashcan on the Desktop -or- right-click on the filename and choose DELETE from the menu.

RE: PS7 programming
This is referred to as "Scripting" in which Java or Visual Basic are used to program PS to do anything imaginable. This requires a download (separate functionality) from Adobe.com to get started.

I'm barely VB literate and have zero Java experience. Although this is an area I've personally not gotten into, many others have. There's a fair amount activity in this subject on the Windows / Photoshop forum at Adobe.com.

Thanks again for asking. Hope this helps.

~Danny~

Thanks Danny
Now that I understand it, it works great..I was going to attach a pic of a mansion that I tryed it on, but when I resized it to fit here, the stippling disappeared..It looked really nice..You'll have to take my word for it..

thanks
Jerry

Photo Art Photoshop ACTION: David Rowley's Hayes Cafe method

This is an action inspired by David Rowley.

It is based on his Hayes Island Cafe tutorial:
http://www.davrodigital.co.uk/tutori...sland-cafe.htm

DISCLAIMER: Works pretty good on "non-people" images. Not at all good on human subjects. Keep image resolution in the 75-150 ppi ballpark for rendering; increase resolution as needed if you decide to print.

Have fun!

Photo Art Photoshop ACTION: Dave Jaseck Inspired Simplifier 2

This is an action inspired by Dave Jaseck, based on the method described here: http://forums.dpreview.com/forums/re...essage=3993078

DISCLAIMER: Works pretty good on "non-people" images. Not at all good on human subjects. Keep image resolution in the 75-150 ppi ballpark for rendering; increase resolution as needed if you decide to print.

Written under PS 5.5; a slight glitch has been fixed so it now works w/PS6, PS7 too.

Have fun!
