***FLAG IN A FLASH***
This is a very special free photoshop action called “Flag in a Flash.” I shared this last summer and wanted to bring it back again. Last year’s version will NOT work in CS4. So I updated it so it now works in PS7 (not elements) and Photoshop CS, CS2, CS3, and CS4. It creates a 20×20 Patriotic Flag Storyboard in seconds. You can resize the storyboard to any smaller size square (such as 8×8, 10×10, 12×12, 16×16, etc). Perfect for framing, printing on canvas, or for use in scrapbooking.
Just download by clicking on any of the photos in this post, unzip, and install the action into photoshop. Then click play. Once it runs, you will want to crop 4 photos to insert. The openings are each 300 ppi:
When cropping add .25 to width and height. So crop the 6×4 photo to 6.25×4.25 for example. Then use Move Tool to move the photos into the Storyboard. Make sure that they are under the “Photos Go Below Here” layer. Then save (or re-size and save if you want a smaller version). Color of the background can be changed by clicking on the blue square in the layers palette and selecting a new color. You also may add a photo to take the place of the white stripes, though usually that ends up a little bit busy.
Enjoy the action. Click on one of the examples to download the action. It works great for Independence Day (4th of July), Labor Day, and Veteran’s Day too.Quick Tip: How to Make a Rounded Corners Border in Lightroom
