During this Photoshop Tips Article we now have a look at two free Photoshop Actions from GraphicRiver which it is possible to import to your Photoshop document to automate the practice of cropping and adding effects. Whenever you are rendering an image and need to make changes to it, then there are just two alternatives for you in Photoshop – either crop the picture or carry out a costly Photoshop operation. In this column I will describe how to use the Photoshop Actions out of GraphicRiver along with the Photoshop Elements 5 plug-in to make the desired changes.
The first action I will show you how to import from GraphicRiver is the ‘cropping’ activity. To carry out this activity simply export a picture from your computer. Click on the Publish image and choose properties. Pick the scale choice and set the width to the dimensions of your chosen image. Click on OK. The second action that you can import from GraphicRiver is your ‘rectangle’ activity.
To import these images from GraphicRiver, go to the’actions’ drop back on the Actions menu. Select the’circle’ activity. Pick the dimensions that you would like to scale into and click OK. The last action that you will import from GraphicRiver is the ‘align’ action. Once you’ve performed all these steps, your photograph should be in the desired scale and position in the document.
The next Photoshop actions from GraphicRiver which you can import to your Photoshop document are the’transparency’ actions. To execute these actions simply click on the action and choose the desired scale and position Photoshop Actions from GraphicRiver to the result. In this scenario we are just defining a new color for the image that’s relative to the current background colour. It is important to note you have to use the keyword ‘transparency’ from the options section for the action to happen. If you don’t include this key word, your photo editing program may provide you an error message,’The transparency action is currently available but it is unipolar.’
The next Photoshop action from GraphicRiver which it is possible to import into your document is the’scale’ activity. To perform this action only click on the scale icon and select the scale value you would like to scale to the dimensions of your selected picture. It is essential to be aware you have to use the key word ‘scale’ from the options section for the activity to happen. If you don’t include this key word, your photo editing program may provide you an error message,’The scale action isn’t available’. You need to ensure that the scale choice is offered in the picture mode options of your picture program.
The final Photoshop actions from GraphicRiver which you can import into your record would be the four Photoshops. These activities can be performed by right-clicking them and picking the’imports’ option from the menu which appears. To choose the image that you would like to use, double click the picture, highlighting the place on the screen where you want to put it. You could also drag the image to a specific place in your file or the display, to alter the positioning if necessary.
