Hipster [vintage] Kit demo release

Here’s the Hipster[vintage] Kit I’ve been posting about for the past few weeks.  This is the first little bit of it; the Adjustment Layer actions, a blurred focal point action, a vignette action, a few Instamatic-type frames and the crop square script.

Downloading is free!  So are comments and feedback – yours, I mean.  So many folks just grab my downloads and I never get feedback until I get a message in my email. I’d love to get both good and bad comments so I can fix anything that might need fixing.

Got a comment for me, then? ;)

Photoshop Adjustment Layers for Photoshop Elements

A fun secret about Photoshop Elements 11: some Photoshop Adjustment Layers can be used in Elements!

Specifically, Black and White, Color Balance, Exposure and Selective Color adjustments can be added with the actions downloadable below.  Note that these will only be available for limited time! They will be included in the updated Handy Actions set early in 2013. Add-O-Matic will be updated to allow for sharing and loading presets that these adjustment layers create. (AOM already supports Channel Mixer- .cha – and Curves – .acv – files, as well as Lightroom presets.)

The caveat to these actions is that the adjustments can only be made while the action opens the dialog; once it’s committed, you cannot go back and edit the settings without running the action again. Also, these additional adjustment layers will only work with Elements 11.

However, the layer mask the adjustment creates is editable – you can edit it to your heart’s content!

These actions are going to be an integral part of the new line of actions from the Graffishop, starting with Hipster (look for it in January 2013)

The actions in the download above are easily added using Add-)-Matic, or you can manually load them in to Elements 11.

personally, I’d get an Add-O-Matic, though……  :)

Graffi’s Hipster first release – .jsx script for cropping square and an action to run it

Original

Hipster!

The square crop

is a hallmark of the latest style in digital pictures: retro, Instagram-ish, hipster looking images. However, cropping an image to a perfect square is actually pretty tricky to pull off, programming speaking. Automating the process is impossible to do without a program to do the math for you.

The javascript below (shown in the screenshot to the left) can be used in Photoshop and Photoshop Elements.

Photoshop users can just browse and load the script as needed (or save it to [SrcDrv]/Adobe/Adobe Photoshop CS#/Presets/Scripts and it will appear in the Scripts menu).

Photoshop Elements users aren’t so lucky. To run the script, you can drag and drop it directly into the Elements workspace, or it can be called from an action.

The download below also includes an action that will call the script, but it requires a specific installation path: Windows users should install the javascript to C:\Graffi Photoshop Scripts\CropSquare.jsx (it MUST be this folder, otherwise the action won’t find it). I’m also going to reference this folder as a repository for future scripts and action set installers, so if you like the Graffi stuff, this is a good place to start.  (As an additional note, Add-O-Matic will be updated to handle javascript (*.jsx) files, and AOM will put them in this folder by default, too.) Installation instructions are included in the .zip download (or grab an Add-O to install the actions, and manually place the javascript in the folder referenced above)

Finally, I’m also including the first Hipster action that utilizes this javascript – a sample image is above.

*MAC USERS: I’d love to find out where to place the javascript on your system so I can update the action.

A short tutorial on using the new actions is coming up next!

Fake HDR Effect (Action for Photoshop or Elements)

i’madd-o-friendly slowly adding more actions to this blog as my obligations to my “real” jobs finally eases up a bit (corporate downsizing and reorganizing only means that the ones who remain have to do twice the work).


Fake-HDR-II-(Graffi) Fake-HDR-II-(S) This effect creates another fake HDR (high dynamic range) effect, which means that the image looks sharper, brighter, crisper and more contrast-y. It will create different looks on different photos, but it also leaves layers intact so you can play around with them a bit once it finishes.

 

As always, comments are welcome
