All right gang, this is the final exercise in the entire series, 3000 movies later, we are coming to an end of Photoshop CS4 One-on-One. I have gone ahead and saved the final effect as Final chrome effect.psd and we don't need this. We need the original image, precision_anarchy, so go ahead and open that up, because that's the one that we need to use in order to test our results right here. All right, so I'm just going to scoot it over so we can see GOV and the A in anarchy and everything else, and then I have also gone ahead and saved out our final effect, the one that I recorded in front of you. I saved it to an action set called Our final chrome action.atn, found inside 30_actions. Everything is found inside the 30_actions folder. And so what we are going to do is we are going to go ahead and click on My chrome maker.
Let's use the button mode. Let's see how simple life can be. You can press Ctrl+Shift+F9 or Command+Shift+F9 on the Mac if you went ahead and loaded Deke keys, and there it is. My chrome maker right there. Let's go ahead and make the Actions palette not nearly so tall so that we can track what's going on. I'm just going to click on it and I'm going to hold my breath and hope everything goes well. And look at that split, lickity split, faster than I could do it if I knew every single step by heart and I was a robot. It just flies by right there.
Took as like, you know, what? 17000 movies to create this effect, and yet Photoshop can play it back that quickly. That's amazing, in just a matter of seconds. All right, and there it friends, I'm going to go ahead and press the F key a couple of times here in order to enter the full screen mode and we have the final version of our image, a creative action assembled and recorded here inside Photoshop and it looks just brilliant. Look at all those wonderful transitions there, and that brings us to the end of our examination of Photoshop CS4, One-on-One.
