Folded Paper Star Action #2

As I was making the star action a few days ago I wanted to make one that you could choose a pattern also but when I tested it I couldn't get it to look right because each pattern is different, with different colors and shades. And that is the reason I did not create one to choose a pattern or background paper. But then Kathy over at WordArtFun also suggested an action that you could use your own background papers with so I sat down and played for awhile and came up with a folded star action that will allow you to choose your background paper. There is just a little bit of input required by you when you run this action but it is easy I promise! You will run the action, be prompted to open your background paper, then be prompted to adjust the brightness/contrast sliders to customize the "shadows" on the star to the appropriate levels for your chosen paper. It really is simple though, run the action and you will see what I am talking about. I also have a .pdf in the .zip so you can see screen shots of what I am talking about. These work in PSE 5,6,7 too! They will probably work in PSE4 but I haven't tested them in PSE4 so I can't say for sure if they will. I am also working on a non PS/PSE freebie that I will get posted tonight - promise! And yes, 4shared was down again today but seems to be working okay now. I am going to try to upload to at least 2 different sites from now on so that there will be alternate download links if 4shared is down or decides to eat my files again. Filesavr seems to be working better too but although it says you can upload 10g at a time, I have never had any luck with a .zip larger than 30mb. The larger files will go up to Adrive and the smaller ones to Filesavr. Confused? I am! LOL.

Thanks Deb, was finally able to download the blog party stuff and the stars. 4 share really messed up a lot of people with all their down time. Hope you are able to locate everything that got lost.
