HI again
In this tutorial i will show you how to Create a thing called a "Droplet" this is also know as an "action". This repeats a specified process to any image you want.

I am using Photoshop CS at the minute but it SHOULD work in any Photoshop.

Okay lets get started.

I am going to create an action which gives it an old timey look like the old films and maybe i wanted to use it on many different images in the future? Thats what a droplet is for it repeats the process on any image saving you precious time which you can spend on Dream in code :)

Choose an image. I'm going to choose one wallpaper I will include the image in an attachment you want to play with that.

1) Posted Image

2) You then want to go to the Action tab if you don't have one dont worry press Alt+F9.::

5) See how it as started recording?
