During this Photoshop Tips Article we now take a look at two free Photoshop Activities from GraphicRiver which it is possible to import to your Photoshop document to automate the process of cropping and adding effects. Cropping and adding effects in Photoshop has always been one of my favourite tasks, especially when performing it on the canvas. Whenever you’re rendering a picture and want to make changes to it, there are just two choices for you in Photoshop — crop the image or carry out an expensive Photoshop operation. In this article I am going to describe how to use the Photoshop Actions from GraphicRiver along with the Photoshop Elements 5 plug-in to make the desired changes.
The first action I will show you how you can import out of GraphicRiver is your ‘cropping’ action. To perform this activity simply export an image from your PC. Click on the imported image and select properties. Click on OK. The next action that you can import from GraphicRiver is the ‘rectangle’ activity.
To import these pictures out of GraphicRiver, go to the’actions’ drop back on the Actions menu. Select the dimensions that you would like to scale to and click OK. The last action that you will import from GraphicRiver is your ‘align’ activity. To try it, click on the image and select the’rectangle’ option. As soon as you have performed each these steps, your photograph should be in the desired scale and place in the document.
The following Photoshop actions from GraphicRiver that you can import into your Photoshop document would be the’transparency’ actions. To perform these activities just click on the action and choose the desired scale and position to the Photoshoot Pt2 PS Effects by effect. In this scenario we are simply defining a new color for the picture that is relative to the current background colour. It’s important to note you have to use the key word ‘transparency’ in the options section for the action to happen. If you do not include this keyword, your photo editing application may provide you an error message,’The transparency action is now available but it’s unipolar.’
The third Photoshop activity from GraphicRiver that it is possible to import into your record is the’scale’ activity. To carry out this action only click on the scale icon and choose the scale value you want to scale to the dimensions of your selected picture. It is essential to be aware you have to use the keyword ‘scale’ from the options section for the action to take place. If you do not include this key word, your photo editing program may give you an error message,’The scale action isn’t available’. You have to ensure that the scale option is offered from the picture mode options of your picture program.
The final Photoshop actions from GraphicRiver that it is possible to import into your document would be the four Photoshops. These activities can be performed by right-clicking them and picking the’imports’ choice from the menu which appears. This will start a new dialog box with a list of images which you would like to import. To pick the image that you would like to use, double click the image, highlighting the location on the display in which you would like to put it. You can also drag the picture to a specific place in your document or the screen, to change the placement if necessary.
