Hello dear users,
The recent update includes a few things:
The action doesn’t work with PS set in French. (And I don’t want to switch to English.) Would you have a patch? Or could you rewrite the script where you set the duplicated layers’ names? I think it’s mainly the copied layers that are a problem… Thanks.
Unfortunately I don’t have a patch for French version of Photoshop.
Each action has been created and optimized to work only with the English version of Photoshop, so please make sure that you are using this version. If not, don’t worry: you can change the language of your version of Photoshop to English (and switch back again) using this method: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GJAiu5W2gLE
I should’ve known better. I figured the issues everyone mentioned previously was fixed so I went and downloaded this for a quick Halloween design and sure enough the same “Select” is not currently available scenario as everyone else. Waste of time and money sorry…
I’m sorry you have issues with the action.
The reasons that may cause the ‘Select’ error are always different.
Could you send me a fullscreen screenshot with your first error pop-up?
My email address: firstname.lastname@example.org
Starting from Photoshop CC 2020 please use File / Open for loading the brushes and the patterns files.
A short video about this update: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uaYUPycjUug
Hi there! I LOVE this action! Tried it immediately after purchase – and it works as it should. I have one question, though… I want my end design to have a transparent background so that I can print it on paper, posters, t-shirts, etc. How do I do this?
In case you need this information: The background of my original image is white. The background of the finished file after the action is black.
To make a background transparent please play the action and do these steps after the action finished work.
1. Hide ‘Background elements’ folder.
2. Hide ‘Background gradient color’ layer that located in ‘Background colors’ folder.
3. Hide the Background layer at the bottom of the folder structure, and hide also the area layer if it’s visible still.
4. Make sure the background is transparent and save the image as a PNG file.
it won’t let me do anything i can’t click them
Could you give me more details about the problem?
Please send me a fullscreen screenshot with that problem, or a screenshot with a very first error pop-up.
My email: email@example.com
Just downloaded it and getting error in Select Work Path. How to proceed?
Try to add a little more space at the bottom of your photo. After that play the action again.
If it doesn’t make sense, please send me your PSD file with Background and Area layer for testing on my computer.
EPIC FAIL: https://www.useloom.com/share/adf708516f09490cacbd2a9d2b3af286
Thanks for sharing the video.
The reason for this problem in a very small resolution of your photo. Please use only good quality photos or scale the image to 3000px on one axis.
After that please play the action again.
Please let me know if it does make sense for you.
Hello, Same error as everyone, Select not available, stroke not available. Can you help, or fix your action? thanks .
First of all please watch this videotutorial before use action: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RbM7qFQ5NiE
Also please check few things to resolve this problem.
1. Please check the name of created layer. The right name “area”.
1.1. Please load brushes file again.
2. Also before you click play button please make sure that the opacity and flow values of brush tool are 100%. And that the normal mode of brush tool is selected.
3. If this not resolved your problem, try to reset your Photoshop settings using this method: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q1OCITC-VYM
4. One more thing: try to play action with another photo. And also please try to increased the resolution of your photo to 3000px on the long side.
Also if you still have the problem with action after all these steps, please send me your PSD file with background and area layer for testing on my computer. My email address: firstname.lastname@example.org
I’m just glad it was cheap because it doesn’t work. It’s an action. It shouldn’t be this hard to make it work. But you have to have the planets aligned just right and even then you’ll get an error about “select not available” or “stroke not available” or a list of other issues. I’ve watched the video, ran through the trouble shooting and looked for answers in the thread and still no closer to making it work. I’ve wasted a ton of time on a $7 action.
Sorry to hear that.
Let me help you with this problem.
Can you please send me a fullscreen screenshot with very first error message? My email address: email@example.com
Hello, I have the same select error
This is the most popular reasons of “select” error:
2. Make sure that your background layer has a “Background” view.
3. Also please make sure that you loaded the brushes file.
If any of these reccomendations will not solve a problem, please send me a fullscreen screenshot with your first error. And please pay attention that a screenshot must contains a full workspace of Photoshop right at the moment when the first error shows. My email address: firstname.lastname@example.org
I sent you an email just now I’m getting the same select error! please respond asap I sent screenshots! Thanks
Hi, please check your mailbox
I, too, continually get the error “The command “Select” is not currently available.” I use the latest version of Photoshop. I followed your advice to prevent this problem but it still happens. What can I do more?
Can you please send me a fullscreen screenshot with your first error? Please pay attention that I have to see a full workspace area of your Photoshop at the moment when the first error is showing.
esta acción es compatible con Photoshop cc 2017 en idioma español?
Cada acción se ha creado y optimizado para funcionar solo con la versión en inglés de Photoshop, así que asegúrese de estar utilizando esta versión. Si no es así, no se preocupe: puede cambiar el idioma de su versión de Photoshop al inglés (y volver a cambiar) usando este método: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GJAiu5W2gLE
How do you edit the colors of the effect

Hi there, I absolutely love the product but it is not working for me. I have attempted some of the fixes I have seen here in the comments and I followed your instructional video with every detail. I continually get the error “The command “Select” is not currently available.” I do not know why especially when I followed every step of your video.
by the way I am using Photoshop CC 2018
Here is the most popular reasons of “select” error:

Hello there – I’ve used this action many times with no problem, but it looks like with CC2018, it no longer works? I’ve tried all the remedies listed here in the comments, but I still have errors throughout – most having to do with the work path not being available or created?
Any help you could offer would be much appreciated.
Hello! This action was tested with Photoshop CC 2018 and all works fine.
Please try to increase the resolution of your project.

Email sent – thank you!
Hello again! Please check you mailbox
It doesn’t work fine in Photoshop 2018 CC. Stops as soon as it hits “Make Fill Layer” for me and is riddled with errors from there. I have watched and followed the video, reset everything, re-downloaded, re-loaded you name it. Doesn’t matter and it still won’t work. Frustrated and annoyed.
Please send me a screenshot with a first error. Please note that I need to see a full workspace of your Photoshop at the moment when first error shows. My e-mail: email@example.com
This action was tested and works fine in latest Photoshop CC 2018.
If you use the latest Photoshop CC 2018, please use the action file from the “CC 2015.5+ version” folder. If a “CC 2015.5+ version” folder contains few versions of the action, please use a version for CC 2017.
If you don’t have a “CC 2015.5+ version” folder into an archive with the action, it’s means that the basic action file works good in all versions of Photoshop.
Many thanks and good luck!
