HolgaRoid Generator BW

BE KIND, SPARE A DIME (via Paypal)


EDIT 11/23/08: Added an extra FINISHER without drop shadow and fixed some minor glitches

EDIT 1/25/08: `LuneBleu wrote are good article about Photoshop Actions and how to install them. Check it out!

I proudly present the HOLGAROID GENERATOR B/W (color version finally available [link]

Like always this actions pack gives you the total freedom to change any value or to disable layers. As a matter of fact I recommend you to fine-tune your output manually to get better results. Automated procedures like actions can't work perfectly with any photo - specially when it comes to colour tweaking.

(Please read the instructions in the ZIP if you don't know how to use Photoshop actions)

This Action Set contains:

4 Type 87 actions (in & outdoor, high & wide format)
6 light leak actions
1 dust'n'dirt action
3 finisher actions

credits would be nice kids! Happy Holgaroiding :wave:

DISCLAIMER: I spent a lot of time creating this action. It helps you to save time, and maybe you can even learn something new. Nevertheless, to install and use Photoshop actions you have to have at least basic Photoshop skills. I won't help you with that. There are plenty of Tutorials on dA and the www.
My actions often have the approach to mimic a certain kind of photographic process. I enjoy to study prints and to reveal its essence, while thinking of a way to empathize this essence with Photoshop. I'm aware that my actions don't create adequate substitutes for an original piece. I just mention this, because there were some purists and hardliners in the past, that shook their heads or even felt offended. Consider this simply a nerdy hobby of mine.
A weak point of Photoshop actions is, that it's not convenient to load files (like textures) during playback, if you want to use the actions on different machines. That's because the paths saved in the action are absolute. To make the outcome perfect, you should adjust the layers and values to your needs and place additional textures manually.
DeviantART has changed the submission rules (again). From now on .ATN files have to be zipped to be approved. Sorry for the inconvenience!

Thank you not only for this perfect PS Action Joy

tolle Aktion, Danke!
Allerdings bekomme ich immer Meldungen, deren Ursache ich nicht ergründen kann: Der Befehl "Distortion", "Glas", "Kristalisiern" steht nicht zur Verfügung. Woran kann das liegen?
(PS CS5 64bit)

Vielen Dank,

die Ursache kann ich leider auch nicht nachvollziehen. Habe eben mal mit CS4 die Aktion durchlaufen lassen und bekomme zwar keine Fehlermeldung, allerdings funktioniert der Effekt nicht mehr wie er soll (die Aktionen habe ich noch mit PS7 gemacht).
Damit der Fehler nicht auftaucht, kannst du diesen Schritt in der Aktion deaktivieren, in dem du das Häkchen neben dran entfernst. Er befindet sich fast am Ende und nennt sich "Glas". Den nächsten Schritt "Kristalisieren" kannst du auch gleich mit ausknipsen.
Diese beiden Effekte haben mit der Ebene "Fringes" zu tun, welche, wie der Name schon sagt, ein paar Fransen am inneren rechten Rahmenrand erzeugen. Ich habe festgestellt das viele User diese Ebene eh deaktiviert haben.

einen Grund habe ich grade durch Zufall entdeckt - es muss ein 8Bit-Bild sein, sonst stehen etliche Verzerrungsfilter nicht zur Verfügung. Wenn ich die Bilder als 8-Bit-tiff an Photoshop übergebe, läuft es ohne Fehler. Ob der Effekt wie gewollt ist, kann ich natürlich nicht beurteilen...
Auf jeden Fall ein sehr schönes Spielezeug!

Ach ja das hatte ich völlig vergessen. Komisch, ich dachte ich hatte die 16 zu 8 Bit Konvertierung am Anfang eingebaut. War wohl beim Polaroid Generator...
Danke für den Hinweis.
