Join Julieanne Kost to discover how adding Save As and Close commands can increase your productivity while recording a “mirror” action.
- [Instructor] To run an action and have Photoshop…save that resulting file as another document,…we can include a Save As and a Close to the action,…and this can really help when we are…batch processing files as well.…So in this case I want to create an action…that just mirrors the left-hand side of the image…to the right-hand side.…So on the Actions panel, I'll click to create…a new action.…We'll call this Mirror, and include it…in that multi-step set.…
Now if I want to run this action…on different images of different file size,…or different orientation, then it would be best…if I recorded the action with my units…set to percentage.…So, I'll show my rulers using Command + R…or Control + R, and then hold down the Spacebar…just to reposition my image.…Right now my rulers are set to pixels,…so I'll right-click in the ruler area,…and change that to Percent.…Then, I will click and drag out a guide,…but I actually want it to be a vertical guide…so I'll hold down the Option key,…and I'll just drag that out to the 50% mark.…
