Hey Guys and Gals,

I've got a book I need to design ASAP. I'd sure appreciate any help on getting an action that will do the torn edges on the right and the painted outside on the left.

I can do the one on the left but I'd prefer to have an action that does it to all sides and then I can crop the sides out I want.

Thanks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

For the one on the right, I would say use Auto FX Photographic Edges 6 (external link). Easier then creating a complicated action and obviously more customizable.

Those are great but I'd sure love to see if anyone has an action or idea how to do some of that without spending another $179. I just spent $400 with Kubota.

CS2....Thanks....

I've got the one down with the torn edges...but I do it all by hand. It would be great if someone has one that actually looks like paper.

Thans Beau!

I'm not sure what point you're making here? I'm familiar InDesign even though I don't use it or have a copy of it.

all you'd have to do is make a sloppy border, save it as a file, make a rough border, save it as a file.

Open InDesign (30 day trial available), make a album layout, in the master put the borders that you made on each side, then on the individual pages just places all the images you want, they'll be behind the border and you don't have to create, buy or run any actions. And its makes your album all in one!

OK, sure like a template. I think long term that is the way to go. I know we use InDesign for the magazine and our art director has is setup with a specific "config", of course she edits it based on advertisers and editorial but you are right....

I wonder how many place like asuka or graphistudios can take an InDesign file?

it exports as PDF which most will take, and acrobta or photoshop will split the PDF into high rez jpeg. ID cs3 will export high rez jpeg too, cs2 only does low rez jpegs
