Now that you have a good idea of how actions work, you can use them to create a multitude of things. What is one of these things that you can do? In this video, Richard Harrington walks through how to use actions to create custom textures that you can add to your images in Adobe Photoshop.
- Now that you got the lay of the land…on how Actions work,…let's take a look at a couple of specific examples.…To start, I'm going to show you how Actions can be used…to create custom textures.…Go ahead and switch back to Bridge,…and navigate to the folder called Creating Textures.…You'll see an Action set called Backgrounds…that you can double-click to load,…and then back in Bridge feel free to also open up…the document called Textures.…Here you can see some of the texture layers…that have been created.…
If you open and close these…this is just some of the sample textures…that are included with Photoshop, so you get an idea.…And you see it ranges from things like paper…to oil to cement textures to even a sunset.…It's kind of cool.…All right, let's go ahead here,…I'll choose File, New,…and I'm just going to make a New Document.…Feel free to go to the category of Photo…and just choose the Default Photoshop option…and click Create.…
Now make sure you have the correct Action set loaded.…I'm going to throw a few of these away right now,…
