ACTION: Overlay Toolkit

OVERLAY TOOLKIT:

Hot off the presses, I have a new Overlay Toolkit for you! This action set allows you to add one or two overlays to a paper or color, or an overlay to a shape or elements. There’s also a layer flipper to change the way the overlay is applied. I’ve also included my older Overlay Maker action for converting scanned textures into overlays. Plus, you get 3 overlays to play with. And, don’t forget the helpful “how-to” video!

INCLUDES:
Add 1 Overlay Paper Action
Add 2 Overlay Paper Action
Overlay Flipper Action
Overlay Reverter Action (undo the flipper)
Add Overlay Element Action
Add Overlay Shape Action

OVERLAY EXTRACTOR:
Converting your scans or photos to overlays has never been easier! Choose from 2 options. The first resizes to 12×12 first. The other uses a solid 12×12 jpg. Either way, the action leads you through converting it to a transparent layer. Video tutorial included!

INCLUDES:
2 Overlay actions

Tested in PSCC, PSE11+, Mac & PC

Designer Use, S4H and Personal Use okay.

ACTION: Resize Custom

For a limited time, I will customize this resize action for your specific needs! Simply purchase this version of the action for $5 instead of $15-$20. In the comments section, include the following information, (or email wendy@scrapbookgraphics.com)

  • The sizes you need
  • Color pop/sharpen ON or OFF
  • Photoshop or Elements version you are using

Common sizes include 1200px, 600px, 500px, 350px, 200px, etc. I will adapt the action to create a copy of your layout/preview in the sizes YOU need. Actions will come with sharpen and color pop unless you indicate otherwise. (These options can be removed by request.)

DOWNLOAD INCLUDES:
Included for demonstration purposes, two customized versions of this action set.
— WZ_ResizeCustom36-9-8-7-6 saves a JPG at 100%, 900px, 800px, 700px and 600px; with sharpen and color pop
— WZ_ResizeCustomBatchV2 saves a JPG at 1000px, 900px, 800px, 600px and 350px; without sharpen and color pop
​​​​​

Two ways to use the actions. (Batching can only be done in PSCS. PSE users will have to use the first option.)

1) Open a layered file in Photoshop. Make sure your layered file has already been saved. Run the Combo action to save a 1000px, 800px, 600px and 350px version. You must edit the name yourself and press enter for each save step.

2) Batch them. Copy all your previews (Photoshop format, or full size JPG) to a folder. Create 4 empty folders for 1000px, 800px, 600px and 350px. Go to FILE>AUTOMATE>BATCH and choose the 1000px action from the dropdown. Set the options per the screen shot (including save settings and filename conventions). Set the SAVE folder to the 1000px folder. Let Photoshop run and save the 1000px previews. Repeat for the 600px action and the 350px action.

ACTION: Frame Blender

Do you love those awesome blended photo layouts, complete with out of bounds effects? This action will lead you through creating completely custom layouts using any masks and frames in your stash! (If you need some masks or frames, be sure to check our vast supply here at Scrapbookgraphics!)

Includes:
1 Frame Blender action with drop shadow
1 Frame Blender action without drop shadow
1 Add Cluster action with drop shadow
1 Add Cluster action without drop shadow

Personal use and S4H. Designers who want to create frame clusters or templates to sell must choose the DESIGNER USE TOU from the drop down menu below.

ACTION: Brush It Batcher

TOOLKIT: Project Life App Complete Bundle

plab

 

FEB 29th: In honor of the Android App release, this set now includes the Journal Card Add-On Actions too!

The Project Life App is amazing for scrapping on the go. But, it has some limits. You cannot control your drop shadows and there is not enough bleed built in if you want to print your pages in photobooks.

These actions take your JPG pages exported from the app, adds a heavier drop shadow (which you can control by editing the provided template overlays in advance). Then it adds bleed to your pages. Choose from any color background or import a digi paper. These actions will resize for Shutterfly or Generic 8×8, 10×10 or 12×12 photobooks.

This set includes template overlays for the Project Life Standard Templates that come with the App as well as all the Extras Pack Add-Ons.

Confused? No worries! Just watch the included video for a quick demonstration on how it all works.

INCLUDES:
8×8 Shutterfly Action
10×10 Shutterfly Action
12×12 Shutterfly Action
8×8 Generic Printer Action
10×10 Generic Printer Action
12×12 Generic Printer Action
Journal Card Add-On Actions**
Template overlays for page designs A-Z, Square 1-16, and Big Shot 1-16.
A Video Tutorial demonstrating the actions

NOTE: These products have been tested on PSCC-CC2015 & PSE11-14. Mac & PC

**The Journal Card Add-On Action set is still in BETA testing, but I wanted to make it available in honor of the Android App Release. Purchase now while it’s on sale and if any updates are made, you will get them right away.

This product is available in a Personal/Scrap-4-Hire Use version. PHOTOBOOK NOT INCLUDED. No guarantee or warranty is offered or implied with the purchase of this product.

TOOLKIT: Project Life App Journal Card Add-On

plajc

The Project Life App is amazing for scrapping on the go. But, it has some limits. You cannot control your drop shadows and there is not enough bleed built in if you want to print your pages in photobooks.

This version pauses in the middle of the action so you can add a journal card to cover up a spot unused in the PL App. These actions are perfect for using cards you’ve purchased outside the app. Just use the add card action to clip a card to the existing collage. Add your own journaling if you want. Then run the saver action.

Like the originals, these actions take your JPG pages exported from the app, add a heavier drop shadow (which you can control by editing the provided template overlays in advance). Then it adds bleed to your pages. Choose from any color background or import a digi paper. These actions will resize for Shutterfly or Generic 8×8, 10×10 or 12×12 photobooks.

This set DOES NOT INCLUDE ANY template overlays. You must purchase the templates through the Standard Pack or the Extras Pack Add-Ons to use these actions.

Confused? No worries! Just watch the included video for a quick demonstration on how it all works.

INCLUDES:
Add Journal Card Action
8×8 Shutterfly Action w/ Pause
10×10 Shutterfly Action w/ Pause
12×12 Shutterfly Action w/ Pause
8×8 Generic Printer Action w/ Pause
10×10 Generic Printer Action w/ Pause
12×12 Generic Printer Action w/ Pause
