Photoshop (actions) Madness

by Fred Showker

Photoshop Madness, Fred Showker surfs the web in search of good Photoshop stuff

PHOTOSHOP MADNESS for November PHOTOSHOP MADNESS is where you practically go mad trying to find the most useful stuff for Photoshop out there among a jungle of bush-leagers, Rube Goldbergers, site scalpers, and domain kiters!

Be careful what you click -- beware of malware and phishing sites As always, we remind you, especially Windows users -- be careful what you click. There are malware, phishing stalker and predator links abundant in many of the replicated sites these days. Whatch those little popups in the text. Just stay on the tutorial / content paths and you'll be okay.
We did indeed find some links of note...

Floating Lineart

Photoshop 911 Photoshop Madness actions

This one is probably one of the best finds of the year. Floating Lineart PS Action by Joumana (Cedarseed) ... the "tutorial queen" from Lebanon... takes one click of the mouse to obtain clean black lines on a transparent background. Who writes:
      I still see deviants asking how to separate their lineart from the background, while there's a very simple way to do it cleanly. I made this action for myself, so that it literally takes one click of the mouse to obtain clean black lines on a transparent background. I decided it was simpler to post it than to keep explaining how to do it!
