Join Nigel French for an in-depth discussion in this video Using the texture actions set, part of Photoshop for Designers: Textures (2011).
In this chapter we're going to see how we can automate the creation of textures…primarily using actions and action is a recorded sequence of steps that you can…playback on any image or batch of images.…When it comes to replicating repetitive task, actions can be…massively timesaving.…We can interact with actions in several different ways, we can use the…predefined actions that come with Photoshop, we can edit those actions, we can…create our own actions, or we can download actions that other people have…created from sites like Adobe Exchange.…
We'll be doing all of those but let's begin with using some of the actions that…come with Photoshop.…So I'm going to come to my Window menu and open my Actions panel and expand it.…Now I have one action set before actions and this are all worth exploring, but…in the context of textures what we want are these.…So we have some textures preset actions, but we have to first load them…and these are those actions and I'm going to begin by working with the black granite.…
