Soft Edge Fade Out
This is a great tool to softly fade out or blur away the surrounding unwanted area of an image selection. I find it is useful when you do not want to just crop the image. The advantages here are that your image remains the same size, the fade is graduated, and the selection pulls itself to the foreground. This action is also great for creating a romantic/dreamy feel to images.

First, Open your Image. Second, Select the area of the image that you want to preserve, using any of the lasso or marquee selection tool options.

Faded Rainbow Frame
This action creates a faded rainbow frame for your image. Note - this action creates the frame inside the border of the canvas, so if your image goes to the edges part of it will be obscured. [I'm still working on a version that will make the frame around the image. Will post it when I do. The effect fades nicely into the centre.

The Anti-Aliaser
The Anti-Aliaser is a set of two simple Photoshop actions. They scale/filter the image, giving quite similar results to anti-aliasing. Great for 3D previews! You can apply it as a batch to a folder of images. How it works? It's simple. It first upscales the image, then applies median filtering to it, and then downscales it again. The difference between faster and better is that faster upscales to 200%, and better to 400%. That's it in all it's

Soft Faded Edge
I don't create many actions, but I've had to repeat this procedure so many times that I finally took time to make an action out of it. Many people have posted actions that help give a soft or faded edge to a picture or selection. Most of them look very good on screen, but have a dirty smeared look when printed. (Even the best printers have problems with soft gradients fading to white) This action gives a soft edge that looks good both on screen and it print. It lets you choose any selection you wish to use for the edge. When it's finished, the edge fades to transparency so that you can then drop it onto any background you wish.

Instructions:
Take the layer you're going to use and duplicate to new. Make sure the layer is centered on the new canvas with the canvas at least 70 pixels larger in width and height than the selection will be. Name the layer "Layer 1" Make sure you're in RGB mode. HAVE NOTHING SELECTED. Run the action. *Note* this will not work well on selection much smaller than 150 pixels in width or height. Feel free to mess with the settings. ;o)

Ray's Super Glass Bubbles
Makes text and white circles/ovals into bubbles of glass. There are lighting effects and reflection/refraction shadows. This version doesn't include the text glass effect, and in order for it to work on text, you must run it seperately for bubbles and again for text. Use the text selection tool and fill with white.

NTSC Menu with guides
Preps image for use in Premiere/Encore (updated)
There was already an action available for a similar process, but it required additional javascripts installed and applied a bevel to the outer edge of image, this one doesn't. This action only works with Photoshop CS. Action will resize an image for the best possible fit within the outer safe margin area. Images will be resized to fit within 649x433 (outer safe margin area) on a 720x480, 72 dpi canvas, with .9 pixel aspect ratio set on a black background. Images processed in this way can be significantly less system intensive for usage with video editing, as they shouldn't need to be resized by the editing application. Images processed this way should give the best possible fit when viewed on a TV. Additionally this action can be used as a quick way to convert an image for usage as a menu in Adobe Encore. Images will be converted to RGB color mode and effect for NTSC safe colors applied

SliceIt
Slice any picture into pieces This action was created, because I sometimes deal with big pictures, I'd like to print on a regular inkjet printer in the original size. So I have to split the containt into parts... Normaly I do this with Illustrator: Placing it there to have parts printed. But what do you do, if Illustrator doesn't come in handy? I created 5 settings in the german version of Photoshop (hope they work in other languages) and what it does: it slices it and places the parts onto different layers...

27ray-smooth mask
Create smooth masks in seconds When working with less that perfect source files this action allows you to smooth the edge of a layer in a non-destructive and variable manner. The basic premise is to take a hard or ragged edge of a layer, and by a combination choking the image and then blurring it and adjusting the layer mask with the curves tool. the curve tool will allow you to adjust the hardness and the position of the edge of the layer mask, and how the image interacts with the back ground. The action stops at all the key point to allow you to adjust then for your image. The pre sets are only for reference and should be adjusted according to the rez of the file you are working on.

Blow Hard
I saw some really cool blown glass shapes. As I was studying the details in the glass, I noticed a lot of slight imperfections due to the glass blowing process -- such as streaks that followed the bends in the glass and lots of tiny air bubbles -- that added so much to the character of the shape and conributed to the way it reflected and refracted the light. I tried to create a similar look with this action without the eye-popping, lighted headedness that you get from actually blowing real glass.
