Block Alpha - Make Your Own!
Hi, everyone! For those of you who thought I might have dropped off the face of the earth, I haven't! :) I am so sorry it took me so long to post this, but there was a lot of tweaking to do on it, and I have also been very busy this week, having just started homeschooling my daughter.
So, today, here is my first Photoshop Action freebie - available for commercial use. This action will create a wooden block alpha in either light oak or white wood, with the letters made from a color of your choice, OR from a paper of your choice! If your paper has a larger pattern, the action also includes a sub-action to reduce the pattern size for you.
The action was created in Photoshop CS3 Extended on Mac - I believe it will be compatible with PC's, and likely with Photoshop CS2 and higher (it does involve the use of scripting). I would sincerely appreciate any feedback or comments, so I can work to make it compatible for as many of you as possible! Please be sure to read the instructions that come with the action - you will need to install the included script so that the action will run properly! :)

Notes for the day:
Lydia and I started homeschooling on Monday. She and her little sister Elena are enjoying it greatly, as am I. Lydia's first three weeks of Social Studies focuses on ancient Hebrew culture, so we are learning a lot - we even visited a Jewish temple last night, which was a wonderful experience.
Two days ago, we went to our local Town & Country Fair, and had a great time despite the heat and humidity. (It's been running about 100 degrees here lately.) This year, there was a Big Cats show, with the chance to have pictures taken with a 2 1/2 month old tiger cub - he was SO soft and adorable - but SUCH big paws!
Hugs to everyone,
