This set of actions is created for maximum flexibility. You are not limited in any way since actions are extremely flexible and can be used for any purpose from thumbnail creation to design of brochures, flyers, photo books, cover pages, posters, business cards… Beside that you have choice for size, resolution, number of placeholders… every layout is easily customizable in terms of number of placeholders, their sizes and positions. That’s not all, additional actions are provided to group image layers and vector placeholders to which images are clipped and finally to merge and rasterize image and vector placeholder with result to minimize number of layers and file size.
Every action have 2 parts or steps which will run continuously without interruptions with pop-up message between to explain you what is the next task to accomplish. In first part you will define document dimensions, resolution, color mode, bit depth and color profile. After that action will create template with 3-100 Smart Object layers for images and vector placeholders to which images are clipped. Second part in action will open Place dialogs to replace each Smart Object dummy content with images or documents of your choice. You can use any type of document that Photoshop supports to replace dummy Smart Object content including JPEG, PNG, PSD, Ai, PDF… formats.
