photoshop script

Here’s a photoshop script I made to assist with animated Content Aware scaling.

http://neilcic.com/Animated%20Content%20Aware%20Scale.zip

Unzip it into Photoshop’s script folder (mine is C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Photoshop CS5 (64 Bit)\Presets\Scripts, probably varies depending on version/OS.)

Open photoshop, then open an animated GIF, import a video, or take a still image in duplicate its layer a bunch of times– essentially, you need to have the frames as separate layers, starting from the bottom.

Click on File | Scripts, and “Animated Content Aware Scale” should be there. If not, you put the file in the wrong folder, but you can click “Browse” and find it manually.

This sexy options box will pop up. Basically, you can tween the drastic-ness of the scaling between the beginning and the ending of the clip. Smaller heights and widths generally make people look crunched and big-eyed. Bigger ones generally make people look pencil-headed and small-eyed.

Play around with these numbers for some weird effects, but be wary that extreme scaling can take a while to process (so don’t, say, put all four sliders all the way down to 1 on a 100-frame, hi-def animation. That will look terrible anyway.)

The “algorithm” option has three methods of scaling. The first two methods are similar, but can both result in really pixelated images depending on whether you’re scaling up or scaling down. The third method, “C.A Scale -> C.A Scale”, essentially content-aware-scales each frame twice, and thus takes longer, and has more unpredictable results.

After you click “Run” and it finishes processing, your finished product will be converted into a frame animation, so you can just hit space and watch it play, or export it as a GIF, or render it as a video, or delete it forever because it’s horrifying.

Note: If you have a lot of frames, your Undo History probably won’t go back far enough to undo the whole operation, so save first if it’s something you care about.

Download Script
Download Action

*This script can be used on gifs with any amount of frames
*This is not a gif tutorial you must have prior knowledge

First you need to close photoshop and put the script in to the correct folder in photoshop.  Find your photoshop file (mine is in documents, yours may be under computer), open it and find the presets folder, open that and locate the scripts folder, open and put thescript in this folder.

Now open photoshop and load the action.  Open the action tab (window>actions or alt + f9), click the drop down menu, select load action and find the downloaded ACTION (not the script).

Now capture your frames for your gif and get them loaded into photoshop.  Crop and resize your gif to however you desire.  If there are frames in the animation bar delete them (it’s just easier this way it’s not going to ruin anything).  Select the layer in the layers bar that has the eye.  Go to file > scripts > HQ sharpen all. Let the script run.  The length of time depends on how many frames your gif is.  Once the script is done running go to the animation bar and select the drop down menu and choose ’make frames from layers’. Now you are done and your gif is sharpened.  Just add a psd and save for web and devices!

PS to SVG script {Free}

This script, once activated, exports all vector layers named with “.svg” at the end of the layer name as SVG files, along with their shape and color attribute.

No more slicing SVGs one by one like a caveman. Finished preparing your layers? Type your keyboard shortcut and Voila! :)

We Don’t Believe What’s On T.V. - twenty | one | pilots - blurryface

Another cute ukelele song. I personally believe this song is about both Jenna and the clique.

The first verse remains straightforward with the idea that dreams are often killed in the making and we face reality and assume that none of our aspirations will be achieved. Additionally, the T.V. usually feeds us lies, whether it be photoshop, scripted reality shows, or faulty commercials, and these lies discourage us from having hope in our dreams. The second verse wonders what might happen if these dreams don’t come true and how much of a slap in the face it would be to wake from one of these dreams.

The next lines beg Jenna and the clique to stick with him when Tyler inevitably makes mistakes; he promises to make it up to them. Also I don’t have any clue about the hair thing, maybe he just really likes hair. The chorus can easily be thought as being about Jenna, because he implies that he wants to know what’s on her mind and finds a reason for living with her being around. But this could also be speaking about the fans because Tyler consistently tells the fans that he understands and wants to know how they’re feeling and what’s on their mind. Perhaps finding refuge in the support of his fans has made him think twice about dying young because he wants to be a role model to this fans.

Sometimes it seems like you need a vacation from your vacation. Although you usually associate traveling with relaxation, there are some aspects that can definitely stress you out. Luckily, we’ve complied some awesome travel hacks of our own and from Quora that will help make your trip more smooth:
  1. Delete people from your photos: Upset that you can’t get a good shot because of all the tourists milling around in the background? According to Sameer Gupta, there’s a lifeprotip that gets rid of people in your photos. “Put your camera on a tripod; take about 15 pictures about every 10 seconds; open them all in Photoshop from File->Scripts->Statistics; choose median.”
  2. Empty water bottle: Since you can’t bring water bottles through security, bring an empty one to fill up when you’re in the airport.
  3. Sleep tight: Bring eye masks and ear plugs with you so you’ll be able to get a good night’s rest on the plane and your lodgings.
  4. Clothes that dry quickly: Bring clothes that dry quickly so you’ll be able to wash them at the end of the day and wear them again the next. This cuts down on the amount of clothing you bring with you.
  5. Book the aisle and window: If you’re traveling with someone and your flight has rows of three seats, book the aisle and window seat and leave the middle seat empty. It’s likely to remain empty if the flight is not full, because people usually choose the window and aisle seat. And if someone does pick that seat, they’ll be willing to switch with one of you.
  6. Google Maps: Use the hidden offline maps feature of Google Maps to access it without an international plan. Kartik Ayyar explains, “You can use this feature by simply zooming to a map area you want offline in the maps app and typing "OK maps” into the search box, and then this data will be available even when you don’t have data connectivity … Works in both the iOS and Android apps. I also suggest ‘starring’ places of interest since you can’t search or route when offline.“ And as for routes, ”take screenshots of searches when you are online … and use them as guides.“
  7. Be one of the first people to board in your seating group: It’s good to get in line and board as early as possible so there’s enough overhead space for you to slip your luggage in. If you board too late, your luggage might have to go in cargo, which means it’ll take longer for you to get off the plan than if you stored your luggage in the overhead bin. 
  8. Pay-as-you-go cell phone plans: Bring an unlocked phone on your travels, and sign up for a pay-as-you-go plan.
  9. Use a phrase book: You don’t have to become fluent in another language, but carrying a phrase book around and knowing the basics will help you get around better in a country where English isn’t the first language.
  10. Go to the airport early: Arrive early, so you don’t have to make a mad dash against time to make your flight. Unforeseen incidents can happen along the way (traffic, forgotten identification, etc.), so it’s best go have a time buffer.
  11. Keep a copy of your passport online: Keep a copy of your passport in your email inbox, so you can print it out if you ever lose your passport. This will help expedite the process of getting a replacement.
  12. Rent houses or apartments: Check out the rental rates of houses or apartments in the area on sites like Airbnb, Homeaway, and VRBO while you’re checking out hotels. Chances are, you’ll get a better rate and some cool perks.
  13. Check out Charles Schwab High Yield Checking accounts: According to Brian Tse, you should get a Charles Schwab High Yield Checking account when traveling internationally "because it refunds every single ATM fee worldwide, requires no minimum balance, and has no monthly service fee.”
  14. Money belt: Use a money belt or sew a pocket in the inside of your clothes when traveling in places where there are lots of theft.
  15. Split your cash stash: Put cash in various places, such as your wallet, pocket, shoes, and your luggage.
  16. Ask your hotel for a charger: Hotels usually have a stash of forgotten chargers left behind by hotel guests that you can borrow.
  17. Bring an external battery for your cell phone: Walking around all day can make your phone quickly drain, especially if you’re relying on it to be your GPS. Get an external battery or a car charger if you’re taking a road trip.
  18. Hotel upgrade: Ask for a free upgrade at the hotel when you’re checking in, because it doesn’t hurt to ask, and you may actually get one for free.
  19. Bring plastic bags: Pack plastic bags so you can use them to throw your dirty clothes in and other items you want separated from the rest of your belongings in your luggage.
  20. Power strip: Bring a power strip for your electronics, so you will only need one or two local adaptors. But make sure it’s one that supports 240V.
  21. Try calling the hotel: Try calling the hotel directly to see if there are better deals.
  22. Bring your ATM card: Get cash from your ATM when traveling, because in most places, you’ll get better rates. Check to see if this is true in the country you’re traveling to. 
  23. Check the crime rates of the area you’re going to: Just so you know what you’re getting into, check the crime rates of the area you’re staying in. The low prices might not be worth the stress of staying in an area where you’re afraid for your safety.

Como tu faz seus gifs?

Primeiro eu tiro as screencaps usando o KM Player ou o GOM Player em uma pasta a parte. Depois, no photoshop, eu uso “script>DICOM file” e seleciono a mesma pasta das screens. Ao terminar de carregar todas as imagens, eu ativo a janela de gifs, indo em “windows>animation”, e na aba de opções dos quadros, eu clico em “make frames from layers”. O gif esta pronto, o resto é opcional. 

Mais detalhado, fiz um tutorial a um tempinho atrás com prints:

Double USM {$14,95}

Double USM (UnSharp Mask)



DETAIL - When it comes to digital captures, it’s such an important feature! Are you looking for something better than Photoshop Unsharp Mask filter?


SHARPENING - Fine tune it by means of the separate control of Dark and Light Halos!
 Double USM lets you set both their Amount and Radius separately, at the same time - so that you’re allowed to target precisely the sharpening to fit the image’s needs and workaround bad looking artifacts.
