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.

Fonts In MidJourney

Months ago I came up with a method to spell words in MidJourney using image prompt, but it takes a lot of time because you need to design a letter in Photoshop, save it, upload it, and prompt it - for every single letter! I had an idea to automatically batch an...

Don’t Use GTP

A little warning on this post. Usually I am a nice and helpful guy, but time to time I need to go on an angry rant, lol... GPT is an amazing AI technology, and incredibly helpful for everything from communication to coding, but it is NOT for MidJourney. When I posted...

Willow Dog Runs

I have a little corgi puppy that I adore, but she is a bit crazy. We like taking her for hikes in the woods, but she seems to think the point of hiking is to run at full speed, like it's a race, gotta win! It makes me laugh, and so I wanted to make a flicker animation...

Tutorial: Batcher, For Batching

So I just made a new tool in Prompter called… Batcher… and It does exactly what you'd think, you know, it batches, duh. If a prompt builder is designed to create one prompt, why not have one to create TONS of prompts to pick from?! Typing sucks. Check a box next to...
