Hello Lovelies! Today I have a Photoshop Tutorial for you, using my brand new Print To Pocket Action No. 01 that just released yesterday. You can purchase the Action by clicking on the image below.
Actions are a series of recorded steps in Photoshop that allow you to repeat the same steps over and over again. This Action helps you design your pocket page layout and then breaks the layout apart into 4×6 printable photos. Here is a video showing how I created this layout:
This Action has completely changed (and simplified!) how I design and print my pocket page layouts. It’s so easy now to select my photos, edit them on a dime, drop them into the layout and then run the Action. This layout today took me about 20 minutes from start to printed photos! For today’s layout I simply edited and added photos to my foundation template, and then ran the Action to have it break the layout apart into printable 4×6 photos.
You can absolutely batch print your pages, leaving the fun creative part once your pages are all printed out. Here is a snapshot of my photos for this layout. They are all sized at 4×6 @300ppi and ready for printing.
Of course, if you are using digital collections you can drop your digital cards into your template as well, and let the Action save those journal cards for you with your photos.
The completed layout is below. If you’d like to see the process video for how I completed the layout once my photos were printed, I invite you to join me in the classroom at In My Pocket Vol. 01! For this layout I used physical Project Life products from Studio Calico to complete the pages. You will be so amazed at how quickly the Action runs, allowing you to print quickly and leave lots of time for the creative part!
Isn’t that awesome to watch?!! Thanks so much for joining me today! I hope you will pick up these amazing Actions today!
