Photoshop Pattern Actions

Want to try out some free Photoshop actions? Read on! – I can remember being a kid staring at a big old computer monitor and making mirrored images using MS Paint. That’s how far back my passion for repetition goes. More recently, I began developing a collection of Actions in Photoshop to speed up pattern-making. I used Adobe Illustrator to create the perfect size shapes needed, then imported them into Photoshop. A lot of steps are involved (cutting out triangles, rotating them perfectly, filling gaps), but once you do it right and record it, then you can run the Action with little effort. So far I have created over 50 actions that do all kinds of things to an image, and when you combine them, things get really wacky.

Click HERE to download a sample pack of my actions. Just open an image, click “play” on an action, move the crop to where you want and hit enter – it does the rest for you!

For the example image here (this is less art and more just a sample of what these actions can do), I came up with a really long and weird prompt, as you can see below. I wanted something abstract yet detailed to work with. Upscaled a bunch then brought them into Photoshop. Just to show off what the actions can do, I ran each image through a few different pattern Actions – ending with a hexagonal one so I could arrange them in a grid. Kinda trippy, dude.

Breaking MidJourney with 50MP

Any mad scientists here? For the past few days I have been running the same prompt over and over in an attempt to break MidJourney - and I finally succeeded… well… kinda. I created a 50 megapixel image (16,320 x 3,072px) and then MidJourney said, “Nah man, you done!”...

Mixing Different Versions

You can mix two different versions of MidJourney with the new Vary Region feature! Want to give new life to an old creation? Just find an old image in your gallery, copy the job ID, then use the /show command to bring it back in Discord - then you have the option to...

InPainting, aka Vary Region

When I am wrong I admit to it, and guess what - I was wrong. The royal we have been wanting and begging MidJourney to add inpainting for what feels like eons. As many of you know, I am a HUGE advocate and word-spreader for MidJourney BUT what I also did is constantly...

One Year Later

I just saw this pop up in my memories and it gave me a good feeling. A year ago today I released the first version of Prompter (the prompt-building spreadsheet) for free just to see if people would use it... I never thought that a year later it would get so much...
