Volunteer to make action?
I would be glad to volunteer myself but I never even used an action until yesterday. I thought the CIA, who has been trying to get me for years, finally succeeded in taking over my computer.
Photoshop Custom Convolution Kernel Action Download
Custom filter actions are grouped into categories such as Low Pass, Directional Derivative Feature Detection using Roberts, Robinson, Sobel, Prewitt and Kirsch operators, Embossing, Laplacian Sharpening and Edge Detection, High Pass, Weighted Blur/Sharpen, Band Pass DoM, Band Pass DoG and Sub Pixel Motion Offset.
For maximum compatibility this action set is for Photoshop v5.x or higher:
Convert to black and white - Based on Russell Brown method
I'm posting this on behalf of Kent Christiansen.
- - - - - - - -
This action is based on Russell Brown's method of using two Hue/Saturation adjustment layers to enable one a great deal of tonal control when converting a color image to black and white. Click “More tips” at http://www.russellbrown.com/ and check out his outstanding “Seeing in Black and White” tutorial.
In Brown’s method the bottom adjustment layer, set to color, acts as a filter would in a film camera. The second (top) acts as “the film.”
Tonal tuning is possible by adjusting the controls in the bottom adjustment layer for each color selected from the Edit menu.
My action takes this concept a step further by using a Selective Color instead of Hue/Saturation adjustment layer as the “filter” (bottom) layer. Instead of six target colors available in the Hue/Saturation dropdown menu, Selective Color has eight plus the the ability to adjust each by individual CMYK sliders.
The degree of tonal variance available for a given color will depend on its degree of presence in the original color image. For example if yellow is chosen from the menu, adjusting the CMYK sliders will have practically no effect if there’s no yellow in the image.
The 'neutrals' target color is the most active and the one I would chose first.
If you are already using the Russell Brown technique, this variation offers a compelling alternative.
Double Dynamics Action
Double Dynamics action created by the author of these well known actions:
For blending two exposures into one image.
See attached .zip archive below (not sure which version this is made for).
Quick check for "Rule-of-thirds"
Not much, but it works around a known
photoshop bug: if you are editing in pixels,
and set values to percentages when recording
an action, the settings will revert back to pixels
when the action is subsequently saved.
Therefore, relative positioning is lost, unless every
single file to which the action is applied is exactly
of the same pixel dimensions.
So, I changed the Units & Rulers to percentage,
then recorded and _saved_ the action, before
changing back to pixels. Now, the action will
place four guides, evenly spaced; two horizontally,
and two vertically, evenly dividing the canvas
into nine rectangles.
Someone might find it useful.
