CoffeeShop Auto Blog Board 1 Photoshop/PSE Action!

I personally am lazy when it comes to making storyboards, so I try to write actions to create them for me to save some time.  This little action does all of the work for you!  This is the first of a new series of automatic blog board actions I will be posting.

Start the action and it builds the board and then prompts you to open the first image (upper top left placement).  Once you open the image it prompts you to free-transform it to fit (hold shift in Photoshop and don't hold shift in PSE to keep your image from distorting while dragging it to size).  After loading the rest of the images (upper top right, middle left, middle right, lower left, lower right) the action will allow you to change the color of the background using a color fill layer (it is preset to white but you can change it to anything or use the eyedropper to pull a color from your images) and sharpen, resize, and flatten for the web.

I hope you enjoy using this action!  Please post your storyboards on my Facebook page, I love to see your work.
