Lesson 12. Creating Special Effects > Playing an action on an individual file

Playing an action on an individual file

Now that you’ve recorded the process of setting the image size and stroke characteristics for the dandelion image, you can use the action as an automated task. You’ll apply the Stroke & Size action to one of the other three image files you cropped earlier in this section.

1.
If the Leaves.jpg, Pears.jpg, and Sand.jpg files are not still open, choose File > Open and open them now.

2.
Choose Window > Document > Sand.jpg to make that image active.

3.
In the Actions palette, select the Size & Stroke action in the My Actions set, and then click the Play button (), or choose Play on the Actions palette menu.

The Sand.jpg image is automatically resized and given a stroke so that it now matches the Dandelion.jpg image for these properties.

4.
Choose File > Save.
