Something for blondiecat and anyone else who is interested.

I told you, I'd put up a picture I created in Photoshop using Actions, and here it is. It's resized from the original so it won't be too big for these forums

That is FANTASTIC! Done entirely with Actions....AWESOME! I love it and can't wait to get started fiquring out this new program so I can do something like that too.

I'm telling you, you are just going to love playing with Actions. They are just about the most fun part of Photoshop, in my opinion. That picture if one of the Wallpapers I will be offering on my Website, and that's why I had to have the Hope's Paul Stanley Page written on it. People on the net sometimes steal your artwork and then claim it as their own. I've learned the hard way, about that. So, all I did was resize the original Wallpaper so it could go on here. I'm not trying to advertise my page or break the Cat site rules. I just wanted to show blondiecat something done with Actions only.

Thanks. I could work on this stuff 24/7 and never get tired of it. I sure wish I could get a job working on graphics and web design. I'd be the happiest person in the world.

You know...

He kind of looks like Ben Stiller in "Zoolander" (Expecially with the white makeup)

O_O If they ever made a movie about Paul Stanley, He could play him :O

Yah.

I know what you mean, as far as when Ben Stiller had his "poses", and they consisted of pursing his lips. That was sort of Starchildesque. However, Paul without make up, looks nothing like Ben Stiller. Ben is kind of cute in a frumpy sort of way, but Paul is a god, especially in his youth. I'd like to see someone like Johnny Depp play Paul, if they ever made a movie about the guys of Kiss.

Ok, I have been using Illustrator & InDesign for a while, but never shelled out the bucks for PhotoShop. I JUST bought PhotoShop. So...what are Actions? And how does everyone get the background out of their photo to put on a new background and have it look SO good? Do you think the PS tutorials will cover that? Thanks so much!

There are books. Huge thick volumes that tell you some of the cool stuff you can do with Photoshop. Actions come with Photoshop. However, what comes with Photoshop are limited, just like the filters. Basically what an Action is, is a series of steps you take to create a certain affect. Like I said, Photoshop does provide some Actions with the program. You would find them in your little floating boxes, wherer you have Layers ect ect. The cool thing about Actions is, that you can actually download a lot of them for free off of the net, provided my Photoshop Pro's who have created them and then make them available for everyone. Some Actions are only available for sale. You can even create your own actions and save them to your Photoshop. The thing is, if you go on the net to download, either Actions or Filters, just make sure they're compatable with your version of Photoshop.

Oh, cool. Sort of like a macro. Well, out come the huge, thick books! Pretty soon I'll have a pretty siggy too!
