Strip Collage From Single Image Photoshop Actions

  1. 1. Strip Collage From Single Image User Guide There are only few things you should know before start using actions: You must have only one (1) layer in Layers panel and it must be Background. For best results use actions with ver in action name (63 Pieces ver for example) with portrait images and actions with hor in name (56 Pieces hor for example) with landscape images.

  2. 2. Load Actions To load actions first display Actions panel from Window > Actions. Click on Actions panel menu and choose Load Actions. Navigate to Strip Collage from Single Image.atn file and double click on it. Try and buy from here http://goo.gl/KRMr36
  3. 3. Change Pixel Dimensions and Resolution Befor running any action you can change pixel dimensions and resolution from Image > Image Size. Actions are size and resolution independent. Try and buy from here http://goo.gl/KRMr36
  4. 4. Play Action To play action select it in Actions panel then click Play button at the bottom. For vertically oriented images play actions with ver in name (23 Pieces ver for example). For horizontaly oriented images play actions with hor in actions name (29 Pieces hor for example). Try and buy from here http://goo.gl/KRMr36
  5. 5. Actions Index After loading actions you will see total of 13 actions. Here I will list and explain what each of actions is doing. • Actions which names starts with XX Pieces are actually creating effect. Play this actions with Background layer only, if you have layered file flatten it from Layer > Flatten Image. • Scale Styles is action to scale Layer Effects: Drop Shadow and bevel and Emboss which are included in final effect and part of action. At the end of action you will see Layer Style dialog where you can adjust setting for effects but I believe it is easier to accept defaults by clicking OK and later to scale them. Run this action after creating effect (after running any of first 13 actions listed) and without any extra layers created. • Clear Style action will delete or remove any effect applied. • Style 1-3 are additional Layer Styles which you can use to decorate created strips.

  6. 6. • Group Layers action will create group from strip pieces created by action. Run this action after running any of first 13 actions listed and do not run actions from Styles group (Style 1-3) after running Group Layers. • Smart Object from Pieces action will create Smart Object layer from strip collage pieces (Layer 1 - 63). • Delete Layers action is handy if you want different effect of already created. Run this action to delete all layers beside Background layer from Layes panel. Do not run actions which creates effect (first 13 actions listed) one after another without deleting layers. • New From Background action is creating new document by duplicating Background layer. This action is handy if you want to create several effect and to compare them. As already mentioned run first 13 actions with Background layer only in Layers panel.
