A simple idea a few years ago has turned into a truly remarkable utility for Photoshop Elements users. I created the Add-O-Matic as a side project to help myself get new actions into Elements quickly and easily, and in the years since its introduction, it has become the single most useful tool any Elements user can own. Thank you all!
Graffi''s Action Packs for Elements are based on the same internal engine, and have become equally popular for their one-click installation format into an increasingly confusing file structure within Photoshop Elements. Despite several imitators'' competition, Handy Actions is still the number 1 action pack in the Graffishop (it''s not called the "Swiss Army Knife for Elements" for nothing!). Other action packs provide options for creating B&W images, frames, glamour shots & some are just for fun.
Why not try out some of the freebies available, and drop me a note with any feedback, suggestions or ideas?
The first set included some Hipster basics: a few adjustment layer actions not readily available for Photoshop Elements users, the now-famous square crop script, some edge blurring (tilt-shift), vignetting and framing actions. It will only be free until they get packaged up and released - thanks for testing, testers!
This download includes 9 different light leak actions that place gradients on a new layer and makes some adjustments to blending and opacity - both of which are editable by you after the action finishes.
What is a light leak? According to Wikipedia:
"A light leak is a hole or gap in the body of a camera where light is able to "leak" into the normally light-tight chamber, exposing the film or sensor with extra light. This light is diffuse, although parts within the camera may cast shadows or reflect it in a particular way. For most purposes this is considered a problem. Within the lomography movement it is seen as a positive effect, giving photos character."
This set also includes a separate gradient (*.grd) file that can be loaded into Photoshop and Elements and used to create your own light leak effects, with whatever gradient style (linear, circular, reflected, etc) and blending mode (hard light, linear light, etc.) that you'd like, and they can be drawn as large or as tight as you need them.
There are two versions available for download: the first includes a manual installer for Windows that is specifically tailored to Photoshop Elements 8 - 11, and it will install the actions, thumbnails, .xml files and gradient for you. It will also put the action set into the Action Player (Elements 8 - 10) and in the Actions palette (Elements 11)
The second version is a DIY set suited for Photoshop users & more experienced Mac/Windows users (or non-lazy Elements users!) who can add the files themselves. Install instructions are included.
