Join Nigel French for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating your own texture action, part of Photoshop for Designers: Textures (2011).
Here we are going to see an example of creating a simple script.…So I am going to create a script that will create texture type on a black…background, using this background texture.…To start what is I need to be on my top layer and I am going to include in the…Action instructions, that proviso because without that it's not going to work.…So I am going to go to my ACTIONS panel and why don't we create a new Action…Set, not necessary but just a housekeeping thing.…
So I'll create a new set and I will call it My Actions.…And then within this Action Set I am going to create a new action and I am going…to call this Textured Type.…I could add a function key to it, I am not going to -- I could color code it, I…am not going to do that either, but those are options.…So now I can click Record.…Now the good news is when you're recording, it's not recording in real time so…just take your time to get it right.…
We have to red button on indicating that we are recording and the first thing…that we want to, go to the background layer and hide the top layer.…
