I am a professional photographer, I edit my images in Photoshop, then once ready for sale and I need to add them to be shown on my website for sale, I currently use a photoshop action to put a border, text, frame & matt around the actual full size image, once that is done I will then save a version of each variation so that I can display the framing options available to the client of the screen, I want the end product to look as real as possible.
I save various versions of the same image with the framing options into a folder at a very much reduced sample i.e. (700pixels longest side, jpeg, quality 5, sRGB). I then upload these images to my website.
As a rule I will save the original image without any frames, matts etc as a gallery image, then save another with frame, matt etc, for each variation all at reduced size as above.
The perfect solution would be to have an action/script that will do all of these things in one step, that is to add a frame, text, border & matt, save the reduced image to a selected folder in one go.
I would like a set of Photoshop Actions/scripts designed for photoshop CS6 that will produce a number of variations (One action/script equals One ratio) with a minimum of the following ratios in mind once the first one has been developed.
I want the first one to be able to work on an image size of 100cm x 50cm (Ratio 2 to 1), with additional actions/scripts to be provided once done to suit the following ratios;
100cm x 66.66cm (Ratio 3 to 2)
100cm x 40cm (Ratio 2.5 to 1)
100cm x 33.33cm (Ratio 3 to 1)
100cm x 25cm (Ratio 4 to 1)
100cm x 20cm (Ratio 5 to 1)
I have attached an action set that I have done myself, this works quite well, however it does not provide me with the dovetail corners which is what I want, see examples attached.
I want the action/script to be able to ask me for the following, now if you are doing a script you should be able to select a number of wood/textures and matt colours all in one go, but at a minimum;
size of the border around the image
size of the matt
size of the wooden frame
text for the name of the frame
text for the copyright, however pre-filled with "2012 © JAIME DORMER"
I would like to have several wooden frame options, but the most common colours are & I prefer; Old Antique Wood, Light Pine, Mocha/Dark Brown, Black, Silver, Gold
You can see what I have been doing at the following link;
You should be able to get other images from my website shown above.
Please provide a copy of what the end framed & matted print will look like perhaps with different woods, and also provide explanation of what edits are available to me and at what stages.
The most variations that I would want is about four on any one image, The winning action/script will need to also provide the original source code so that it can be editable by me if necessary.
I will favour those actions/scripts that will give me the most flexibility.
