Photoshop ACTION PACK: What they are. How to use them. Get them now.
I have been working with mirroring of photographic images since 2002. During this time I have evolved a workflow that can generate up to 22 different mirrorings per original photographic image.
In this exploration I have developed four Photoshop ACTION PACKS to support this mirroring effort I have come to call Parallel Universe.
Photoshop ACTION PACK #1
Features simple two-way mirroring including two-way top half of original image (see Parallel Universe Gallery 2), left half mirrored two ways (see Parallel Universe Gallery 4), right half mirrored two-ways (see Parallel Universe Gallery 6), and bottom half mirrored two-ways (see Parallel Universe Gallery 8). For a total of four separate Photoshop Actions.
Photoshop ACTION PACK #2
Features four-way mirroring including the upper left quadrant mirrored four-ways (see Parallel Universe Gallery 1), the upper left quadrant mirrored four-ways(see Parallel Universe Gallery 3), the lower left quadrant mirrored four-ways,,(see Parallel Universe Gallery 7) and the lower right quadrant mirrored four-ways (see Parallel Universe Gallery 9). For a total of four separate Photoshop Actions.
Photoshop ACTION PACK #3
Features a very complex mirroring all of the Photoshop Action in Pak #1 + 2 and assembles them into 3×3 matrix final image.
Photoshop ACTION PACK #4
Features thirteen separate croppings from the images generated in Action Pak #3
For many years I worked with individual images, but recently realized I could batch process the Photoshop Actions I had developed. I awoke on January 3, 2017 and decided I would begin to mirror all the photographs in my entire photographic library and post them as a serious experiment in the mirroring of photographic images. To that end this website has become the landing place for this epic photographic experiment.
I am processing my entire photographic library and posting the results on this website. I am calling this project Parallel Universe, and it will consist of 22 Parallel Universe Galleries, with each featuring one of the mirrorings from the Photoshop ACTION PACKS above.
I invite you to come along with me on this epic photographic experiment. I believe that everyone will find some subject matter mirrored that simulate them and moves them into another reality. One that is familiar but so unfamiliar at the same time! There are many unique qualities that these Parallel Universe images have to offer that I will explore in my Make I Tell You Blog, come with me…
You are going to want to get a few Photoshop ACTION PACKs to experiment with your own images! You are guaranteed to be amazed and excited with the results.
