Re: Help With Photoshop Action

Also, I fail all the time because my default out of ACR is 16 bit color space. has to be 8 bit. And make sure that background layer is called "Background", and other layer is called "ga". Nice trick stepping forward one step at a time. I didn't know that one. For the other, I build a custom "pre" a...

Re: Help With Photoshop Action

So, it took some real investigative digging but I discovered one potential culprit. Since this action relies on selections, go to your selection tools (left toolbar) and go down the line and make sure sample all layers is NOT selected. This will hang up the action guaranteed. Hope this fixes your is...

Re: Help With Photoshop Action

I run Windows so I can't be certain it's not something to do with Macs. I do find that occasionally actions (in general, not just this one) tend to hang up for some reason. They work well until suddenly, snap, something happens I can't explain. Then, just like nothing happened, it's back to working ...

Re: Mystery light

MinnieV pegged it. It's called haloing and it can be caused in several ways (most often seen in HDR tone mapping) and very often it's considered an artifact most people strive to avoid. However, it is also a technique (brushing, masking) that can be used for special effects, as in this case. Now, th...

Re: The Chase

[...] for the sake of stepping up critique just a bit I would like thoughts on the loss of all the character of the original image with the crop, it does as minniev points out, become more of a portrait...for me it looses all the game interaction without the rest of players..I also feel the origina...

Re: The Chase

Wow, a much more powerful presentation of the action. The viewer is now forced to look at the story without any distractions. Considering what you had to work with... this is the best one yet. Now... I see you rolling your eyes... Let me walk you through the mind of an illustrator asked to show boys...
