    literally read my mind!! I was wondering about this yesterday :D?

  2. Lisa Noble says:

    Excellent! Actions have always been a little bit daunting to me… so I
    wouldn’t even try to create them. Now maybe I will use them on a regular

    Also, may I ask what app you are using to do your screen cast? I am
    thinking about using something like it to do website reviews for my web
    consulting business. You guys do such a great job of melding your video and
    screen casts together, I just wondered.?

    Hey Hey! Love all the PHLEARN TUTORIALS !!!! quick question…. Is there
    a way to create an action in CS6 that will work for all versions of
    Photoshop? I’ve created some that I really like, but am wondering if they
    will work in other versions of photoshop as well. Or in the future, how
    would I create them in the future for other versions. Thanks in advance!?

    Do you have any advice for using actions more in the context of an
    architectural rendering? I have some steps that I do in every rendering,
    but they’re always slightly different. For example I start with a rendering
    of a building and have to photoshop in a sky around the building. Can you
    think of a way I’d make a standard action for that, even though the size of
    the image and shape of the building always vary? ?

    +Phlearn Photoshop & Photography Tutorials I don’t think the vignette
    worked because you have to give it a selection?

    Great Tutorial!?

  11. Supi Boonaphai says:

    I gave up creating action months ago because I didn’t use shortcut to
    select layer and everything was messing up, but you just saved my life. Sir
    You are always amazing. Thank You?

  12. Lala Mabaso says:

    Hey Aaron, for renaming the group – I wonder if it would work to hold “Alt”
    at the same time when holding “Cntrl-G” so that a dialog box comes up,
    which would let you rename the layer without having to double-click on the
    layer. 16:12?

  19. hectorianooo says:

    Great episode!! I’d really like to learn how to make a picture look the
    ones of Lady Gaga for the Versace campaign or any Mart&Marcus photography
    for that matter. Great channel, I just started watching your videos last
    week and I’m obssesed!?

  20. Carlos Irineu says:

    Aaron, your use of “positional displacement” by selecting next / previous
    layer won’t work every time, I think. It’s still a modal command. If I open
    a second action that needs, for example, to operate on a pixel layer for a
    Gaussian blur, it *needs* to know either where the “base” layer is (and
    that can be a group or the background or any other image layer) … so….
    I thought about using a layer filter, like “Kind = pixel layer” , then Alt
    / Option ” . ” + Alt / Option + Shift + ” , ” will actually get rid of PS
    inability to select background layers and it wouldn’t become modal again
    depending on having or not to duplicate a background…. And then a
    Gaussian blur can be applied. Photoshop is VERY modal, this whole actions
    thing is cool but it becomes like programming when a more complex action is
    required. Will Adobe ever learn how to program?? PS – If you do have a
    better method, I’d be glad to know!?

    Hey Aaron, is there anywhere i can see your 360 self portrait shots??
    Thanks for the clips..i love them! You are my Oprah…..just….skinny..and

    Very useful..!!! There´s only one thing I didm´t understand: What is
    OPEN/CLOSE BRAKET to select backward layer? (minute 15:31. 15:57)?

  23. Leon - Qeycon says:

    No professional artists would ever use the “auctions” function in Photoshop
    as they work far too fast for it to be beneficial.
    This would only benefit slow working artists.?

  24. Kopar'RUS says:

    with what camera and at what settings was that picture taken? :o?

  25. Maxsdiscos says:

    Does Elements 10 have actions??

  27. Clarissa J says:

    Of all the tutorials I have had seen on Youtube this is one of the finest
    and most instructive on the use of Dreamweaver and div tags. I must give
    my highest accolade to this excellent guy for making it clear, lucid and at
    the same time a positive experience! Thank you!?

  28. Amy Handford says:

    Thank you… wonderful tutorial… especially for an artist such as
    myself… it actually makes sense… :)?

  29. Spyke Tan says:

    I have wasted hours watching youtube tutorials, some even comes in “Parts”
    an hour or more longer. None are nowhere near what you’ve done here. This
    36:10 video is the most well spent time of my life. Even where points that
    you did mistakes on, I learnt from that how to rectify if I did do that
    mistake. Cut to the chase and all needed is well absorbed. Well done!?

  30. glennracoma says:

    Thank you. I really appreciate your straight ahead explanation in div
    structuring. Really cool way of doing this. There were other ways but

    You make this looks easy been using WordPress and the div tags that I
    didn’t have a clue about will help with my layout. Now looks like there was
    tables in template I selected because I could not get an embedded map from
    Google to sit next to any text after aligning it jumped back to its
    original position. Can I use an embedded map in dreamweaver will I have
    problems again just before I try to build again. I am banging my head
