Very nice Fontes, sweet

I would love this but unfortunately, it makes the text expand / fatter. When I choose a font, I simply want the end result to be that font with the texture.

Why does your actions thicken the text ? :( This makes my text unreadable. Can I avoid this? :)

There are 2 versions. One to be used on smaller text and one for larger. The smaller version (actions that start with “sm”) doesn’t do this as much. But if you want it gone completely, you can go into the action and edit the steps.

Click the drop down arrow next to an action to view all the steps. Then go down and uncheck the checkmark next to the following: - Smooth - Expand - Gaussian Blur

You can turn these steps off for any of the actions to remove the effect. Hope this helps.

I like these actions…However, my red coloured text always turns to black… Could you please explain why is this? :)

Cheers

In the Read Me file included with the download, there are instructions. Whatever your foreground color is, that’s what color your text will be after the action is run.

I’m having a great time with these. Thanks very much! David

Hello, when I run these actions is say that “desaturate command is not available”. I am running Photoshop CS5. Please help. Thanks!

I’m not able to complete the action. I don’t if that’s because I’m using in a Photoshop portuguese version. Every time I click to make the action I turns blurred and the stops. Why is it happening?

Hi! When I run action it says that command is not available. I would so much want this to work.

Do you have any ideas?

Thanks!

Hi,

I bought this a while ago and have now gotten around to using it. I have to say that it looks quite unnatural on larger areas where the seamless repeat is very obvious and visible. I first tried using it on large letter (placed on letter size document) and saw this happining. Then I used the action on a full letter background size. So it might look good on smaller sizes, but I really think you should recommend not using it on bigger areas, because that doesn’t look good at all.

Do you have any ideas of upgrading, making changes to this, maybe add some actions that work with better result for larger areas?

Thanks!
