Water drops, and pretty much any other form of contamination, can be a very time consuming process and requires a lot of patience. Just dealing with the placement of hundreds of drops all correctly pointing in the proper direction, with highlights and shadows would drive any designer nuts.
What follows is a brief explanation of the process we go through to create the Actions found on this site. Our Actions use Photoshop’s powerful image manipulation tools to render a high-impact, high-resolution product that will incorporate your design. To do this, a lot of preparation is done with every product.
Photoshop Actions are meant to be used to save time on repetitive tasks. Actions can record your steps as you perform enhancements to a photo that, once saved, can be “replayed” on follow-up photos in the future. This article is an executive pitch explaining the most popular use of Actions.
