Join Julieanne Kost to discover how to customize image settings on a per-image basis when recording actions.
- [Narrator] There are times when you need to change…the settings for each image that you run an action on.…If this is the case, you can have PhotoShop display…the command's dialogue box instead of automatically applying…the same recorded values to every single image.…So in this case, we're going to create a multi-step action…that just adds an adjustment layer and colorizes the image,…and then reduces the opacity of that layer.…So, I'll create a new action.…I'll call it Colorize,…and I'll add it to this multi-step set.…
I'll click Record, and at the bottom of the Layers panel,…I'll click on the Adjustment Layer icon,…and choose Hue and Saturation.…Then, click the colorize button, decrease the amount…of saturation, and just dial in the hue…that I want to tint the photograph.…Then, in order to see some of the colors…from the original image, on the Layers panel,…I'll decrease the opacity, maybe somewhere around 50%.…
Then I'll stop recording, and to see the second image…that I have open, I'll use the keyboard shortcut Control+Tab…
