FRAMING ACTIONS
Set #1: Text

:deviation:

These Photoshop actions add a frame/border to your image with editable text. Everything is done in layers so it is quick and easy to tweak it (e.g. change the color of the frame).

This is the first of a series of action sets that you may use to quickly add nice frames to your images. They are intended for use on images for screen/web viewed at 100% zoom. Created in Photoshop CS4.

Set #1: Text
Set #2: Simple
Set #3: Double
Set #4: Filtered
Set #5: Shadow
Set #6: Soft fade
Set #X: Bonus

Download zip-file (this a compressed file).
Double-click it to open/unpack it (what happens depends on your system).

Inside the zip-file is the file "Frames - Text.atn" (The .atn-ending might be hidden on some system).
Doubleclick (open) this file. It will open Photoshop.

In Photoshop go to Window > Actions. You will be able to find it in the list there.
Open your image (scaled down for use on screen).
Select the Action in the list and press the Play-button in the Action-panel.

I love the idea of this action ... any chance of getting it for Photoshop Elements 8, too?

chain Featured By Owner Feb 2, 2010  Professional
Elements doesn't support brushes I believe. It is a "light" version of Photoshop after all... :/

Although, if you google it I'm sure there is a way, maybe using plug-ins?

JunoMagic Featured By Owner Feb 4, 2010
Actually, you can use brushes and actions and plugins with Photoshop Elements ... I do that all the time. That's why I asked ... :) Alas, obviously not all actions. I'll just have to keep making my frames by hand! Thank you for getting back to me!

I dunno why I thought you asked about brushes :P

Anyway, I don't have Elements so you've just gotta try and see...

If creating your own my action mostly just increases canvas size by an even number of pixels to make a frame. Do it several times with different background colors. Then add some more space at the bottom and a line of text.
(You may do it in more fancy ways using layers if you prefer).
