Photoshop Image Preparation

We have created some custom actions for Photoshop to prepare images for printing. Download them here and follow the install instructions below.

The above file is a .zip file containing .js Javascript files, your browser may warn you about risk downloading scripts like this, as it is a common way to trick people into installing malware. All files are readable in a text editor like Notepad to see that nothing nefarious is being done within these scripts.

Whats Included:

  • Folder of script files to be placed into Photoshops’ Directory.
  • A Photoshop Action file to quickly run the scripts
  • A Read Me file which is just a simplifed version of this page.

How To Install

  • Extract the supplied zip folder, and copy the folder “Actions By Art House” into your Photoshops “Scripts” folder.
  • Keep all scripts in the packaged folder. However the folder name can be changed if you wish.

Where to find the scripts folder?

Windows: C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Photoshop CC 20##\Presets\Scripts

  • Once the folder is in place, Restart / Open Photoshop
  • Open your Actions Panel and choose “Load Actions“, Navigate to the extracted folder from step 1, and choose the .ATN file
  • All Done! Run any of the installed actions on your images as required.
