Photoshop Elements Actions – 2 New Freebies to Try + Contest Winners

by Erin Peloquin on March 11, 2010 · 28 comments

Photoshop Elements Free Action lovers, there are two new ones for you to try.

Digital Backdrops

The first is a set of 10 actions that create Digital Backdrops of any color in 10 sizes.  Like this:

You can use it to put behind a subject to make your photo look more like a traditional studio shot, or to hide a distracting background.  Don’t forget about PSE’s Magic Extractor tool (in the Image Menu) when putting this backdrop behind a subject!

A Texas Chicks reader found this action on ATN Central.  It wasn’t compatible with PSE, so, with the permission of Shannon Beauford, the action’s creator, I converted it for Phtooshop Elements.

Have you visited ATN Central, by the way?  Most of the actions there are for the big Photoshop, but there are some hidden gems for PSE if you look.

Anyway, since this action’s home is rightfully on ATN Central, I have submitted it for posting there and it’s not going to live at Texas Chicks for downloading.  However, if you are a subscriber to the Rooster Roster, I will be sending this action to you later today.  I will also send it to anyone who joins within the next week. The Rooster Roster sign up form is on the right side of this page.

MCP’s High Definition Sharpening Action

Jodi recently published my conversion of her free High Definition Sharpening Action on MCP Actions.  This action set contains one action that sharpens images for printing, and another that resizes and sharpens for the web.  (And for those images that need special sharpening attention, check out my Sharpening Powerhouse!)

Red River Paper Contest Winners

The winners of the Red River Paper gift card stock have been selected and will receive emails about claiming their prizes later today.

Kaleidoscope – A Collection of Color and Light

Coming up next on Texas Chicks, we will explore Patti Brown’s Kaleidoscope Collection and how to use it.  And yes, there will be a giveaway!  A good one, too. And those of you who don’t win will get a huge discount on buying Patti’s products.
