I have a white screen when i try export animation in *.gif format2018-10-09T20:27:38+00:00

When you try to export animation in gif format you can see a white screen and most people think that Photoshop is stuck.
First, don`t worry. Photoshop is not stuck. PS need a little bit time calculate each frame of your animation and write it in cache.
What do you need to do? Just wait a little bit. That is all!

How to configure Photoshop to work with actions2018-06-27T21:11:58+00:00
  1. Make sure you are using the English version of Photoshop. Each action has been created to work only with the English version of Photoshop.
    How to change language version you can watch HERE. When you will finished your work, then you can to return to your native language.
  2. Use the RGB Mode and 8 Bits color. To check these settings, go to Image->Mode and check the “RGB color” and “8 Bits/Channel”.
  3. All Animated Actions work only with CC+ version of Photoshop. (Works also with Photoshop CS6 Extended version that have the timeline)
  4. Use a image with resolution 72px/inch or more and in range from 2500-4500 px. If you are using a photo with less than 1000px, the action will not function correctly. To fix this, go to Image->Image Size and increase the resolution value.
  5. Set the Opacity of the brush to 100%. Select the “Brush Tool” and move the opacity slider to 100%.
  6. Check if you install all necessary files (Action file, brushes and patterns. It depends of each action.)
  7. Before you play the action be sure that you have set your main image as default layer with name Background and lock. How convert your layer into default layer you can find in this FAQ.
  8. Plz, don`t ignore help file. Follow the instruction that described in the ReadMeFirst.pdf file. Follow the instruction and be happy. Also inside you will find a link on the video tutorial.

 

Could not complete the command because the selected area is empty2018-06-27T21:47:48+00:00

This error occurs when Photoshop cannot find enough visible pixels to make a selection. This can happen in a few situations listed below.

  • If the action requires brushes for it to work, please ensure your brush opacity is set to 100% before playing the action.
  • You have brushed over your photo with a very faint brush. Please use a brush with 100% opacity when brushing onto your ‘brush’ layer.
  • You have only brushed a very small area or very thin lines. Most of my actions use the area within the area that you brush to create effects out of – so it is important you create a large enough brushed area to avoid Photoshop running into selection errors.
  • In some rare cases, the resolution of your document might be set to something very small like 20. Ensure your document is set to 72dpi or greater before playing the action.
The command “Select” is not currently available2018-06-27T21:44:53+00:00

This error is most commonly caused by incorrectly setup Photoshop files. Please ensure you have watched the beginning of the Action video tutorial to see if you have set up your file correctly. Below are the solutions to this error:

  • Check if you give correct names to your layers (For example ‘brush‘ or ‘mask‘, always give the name without commas);
  • Make sure you are using the English version of Photoshop;
  • Make sure you have loaded the brushes into your brushes panel before playing the action. If there are brushes included in the action download ( ’.abr’ file ), then it must be loaded before playing the action or you get this error;
  • Go to the Timeline panel and delete it if you have one. For this go to the right corner of the Timeline panel, click on settings icon and select ‘Delete the timeline’;
  • If you have done everything above and are still getting errors across mutiple photos, please reset your preference files. To do that, hold down Alt, Ctrl, and Shift keys (Mac: Command, Option, Shift) while starting up Photoshop. A dialog box will appear asking if you wish to delete the preferences/settings file. Delete it and then run the action again. If you are using Photoshop CC, you can reset your preference files by going to the menu, ‘Edit > Preferences > General’ and then selecting ‘Reset Preferences on Quit‘;
Still having troubles with an action?2018-06-27T21:32:42+00:00

The common cause for errors in actions are corrupted Photoshop preference files. This can cause an action to throw unusual errors that prevent the action from completing. Most of the time you don’t even know they are affected. This is generally the case if you have not run a Photoshop action before, in a very long time or have upgraded to a newer version of Photoshop.

Reset your preferences by going to the menu ‘Edit > Preferences > General’ and then selecting ‘Reset Preferences on Quit’.

The Object “Layer “Background”” is not currently available2018-06-27T21:51:24+00:00

You need to set your photo as the background before running the action. You cannot simply name your layer Background and lock it.

To set your photo as the background, select your photo layer and go to the menu Layer -> New -> Layer from Background. I demonstrate this at the beginning of each video tutorial for your reference.

Important: you only need to do this step if you open up your photo and your background layer isn’t called ‘Background’ and has the lock symbol. In nearly all cases you only need to perform this step if the photo you open is a .PNG file, or any file with transparency.

How to set the layer as background with lock?2017-10-16T13:19:18+00:00

All actions work only when your image is set as background with lock.  There are few ways how you can do it:

  1. If you open image and you have a name ‘layer 0’. Select layer and go to Layer->New->Background from layer.
  2. Select your layer and click right button of your mouse. There will be a layer properties, click ‘Flatten image’ menu. That`s all.
