Happy New Year! I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday this last month. We had a great time
with friends and family, but I am ready to start the new year. Imp's teeth are doing well (they are somewhat crooked now but the wounds are healed), but I am still having flashbacks of the accident. He doesn't seem to remember and is back to jumping around like a stuntman and driving me crazy. All I can do is say a little prayer and keep my fingers crossed and ask myself why I didn't have two nice little calm girls who liked tea parties and playing with dolls. A girl who was not like me since I was a tomboy and just as bad as my two little rugrats.
I have a new web action for free download today. This one is called CoffeeShop Web Simple Frame and it is perfect to quickly ready your images for posting on your blog or website. It resizes, sharpens, and adds a small white frame with drop-shadow to your images.
When you start the action it flattens your image and then asks what size you want your images resized for the web. Put in the final pixel width (it is preset to 600) and the length will automatically adjust. The action will then sharpen your image for the web (adjust the radius to taste) and add the frame and drop-shadow.
Adjust the drop-shadow setting if needed and save as a .jpg for posting on white backgrounds, and save as a .png for posting on backgrounds that are not white.
If you don't want your images to be stolen when you post them on the web, it is best to always watermark them and upload small versions. If you upload large images on Blogger and adjust the size to be smaller in your post, people can still access your larger image if they click on the image, unless you change the code.
I hope you enjoy this new web action! You can find all of my Web Ready actions on this page. Just page down to Web Actions. All of my web actions work in both Photoshop and Photoshop Elements.
