Many, many years ago, I devised and wrote the Original Comic Art Effect tutorial for Photoshop. Since then, it continues to be one of the most popular items on the site—day in, day out. It also crops up in all kinds of interesting places—even video.
It wasn’t long before Photoshop power users wanted to apply the effect to dozens of images to create actual comic books. To do that meant many hours altering many images…following each step of the tutorial manually. They started to demand that I offer a Photoshop Action for the effect.
This was great—the power users loved it. The problem was, those just-a-bit-newer to Photoshop were confused by it. Many thought it was supposed to be a Filter and would show up in that menu. They had no idea how to install it or use it—they just wanted to create the Comic Art Effect!!
So now, after many years, I have now created a video to show how it’s done. And the procedure is dead easy. In fact, since you will soon know exactly how to install and use Photoshop Actions, you’ll be happy to know that there are many places online that offer highly productive ones. For instance, here is Smashing Magazine’s Ultimate Collection Of Useful Photoshop Actions.
But, for now, power up Photoshop, download the Comic Art Effect Action and watch this quick video tutorial. Then get to it!!No Flash? No problem—click here!»
