to our first offering of actions for 2001! Sorry about getting
these posted a bit late but, it has been a rough holiday season. I
am just starting to recover from being beaten, robbed and left for dead
in a shopping mall bathroom while Christmas shopping by a band of hoodlums known as, "My
Wife and Two Teenage Daughters!" Somebody dial 911!
Next year I'll just hand over my wallet and beg them to let me stay
home. Anyway, I hope everyone had a great holiday. And even if it is
the year 2001, and we still don't have flying cars, or meals in the shape of a
pill and we're not all walking around in matching silver jump suits
flying to our jobs on Mars in big shinny rocket ships, we do have
Photoshop Actions, and that aint too bad! Happy New Year!
action there is a thumbnail of the 'Before' and 'After' image.
Clicking on either will bring up the full size version. Grab a
copy of the
full size version of the 'Before Image' and use it to test the action. Your image
should look just like the 'After' version when complete. If all
goes well, you can than experiment on your own. To download the action
files, click on the action
title or icon for each action.
sure and check out our new 'Hey, Your Actions Actually Work'
section with images that people have sent in that were created in whole
or in part by one of our actions. If you have cool images that you have

us for information on how to submit your stuff!!
A nice blue glass on a black background that works great on text
and also makes some pretty cool buttons. Add a few glows
and glares to enhance the effect.

Hey, it was better than calling it Pink Drippy Crap! No, I
don't know what you'll use it for either. On the other
hand, I think PinkDrippyCrap.com is still available and if you
need a logo...

Acrylic paint squirted right from the tubes. You remember
this stuff don't you? It's what we all used to paint with before
we got computers. Or, if your like me, it's what you ate
in kindergarten class when you ran out of paste. Lets you
pick your paint color using the Hue Slider.

The inspiration for this one came from having two daughters that
come home from shopping at those little boutiques at the mall
with a whole bag full of bracelets with glitter, hair clips with
glitter, necklaces with glitter, body glitter, lip gloss with
glitter, glitter with glitter..... Amazing, since they went to
the mall with only $10 and still had enough left over to eat
lunch in the food court! "Hey Dad look, I got 50 bracelets
for a quarter!" - Prompts you for your glitter and frame
color. Keep your letters 6 to 8 pixels apart if you want
them soldered together.

I have had several emails asking me how to change the color in
the Electric Light Action. To tell you the truth, I have
no freaking idea! I looked at that thing the other day and
I don't know what I was thinking! Anyway, here is a simple
neon effect that will prompt you for your color using the Hue
Slider. For yellows and green, you will have to take the
saturation down a bit.
