Say what? This freebie action is hard to give a title to but once I explain hopefully you will understand. I have always thought that overlay previews are a pain to make. You want to show the "before" and "after" but lining them up, figuring out the right size, etc. can be confusing. I have wanted to have this action for awhile so I made it last night and am offering it to my designer friends if they would like to use it to create previews of their overlays. Here's the details: you stack your overlays in a document and press play. The action will prompt you to choose a color that you want for the "after" display in your previews. Choose your color and the action creates your preview for you, complete with before and after sections of your overlay! Cool? Maybe not, but it is definitely time saving! The overlays in my preview are not included but you can buy the sets in the 1,2,and 3 overlay pictures in the preview from Sophia Sarducci's store. The entire store is 1/2 price right now so get them while you can! The overlays in the 6 overlay picture in the preview are from MCA Designs and you can purchase 100 overlays for $14.95! What a steal, and they are all of superior quality, as are Sophia's. There are 4 actions in this set for 1,2,3, and 6 overlays. And they will work in PSE5 through 7! I hope you can find a use for this preview action!
Oh, and the cardboard in these example previews is not part of the action either, you can choose your own background for your previews and add your store or blog name to the preview.
