FREE: Hi-Def Photoshop Action Script

Hi. This is Rick Rys from HiDefColor.com
Today’s tutorial is going be a quick instructional video on
using the new Hi Def 3 action scripts within Photoshop to automate
your image processing. Inside Photoshop CS go under the window and select actions. In the actions window you want to select load actions and navigate to where you downloaded
your Hi Def 3 action script file. Mine here is on the desktop, select the file, click open, and now the actions are ready
to be used. So from here we’re going to open a couple of files. Now with this action script, this action
script will automatically assign Adobe 98 RGB color profile to your images.
The Adobe RGB color profile is a much larger
color gamut so your colors will be much more vibrant. I do not recommend using
this for portrait photography. Use the sRGB color profile for portrait
photography. I will be uploading an action script Hi Def action script with the
sRGB color profile in the next few days. So from here we want
to go ahead and ignore the missing profile. The image will be brought in and simply select the Hi Def 3 action
script and click the play button. You’ll see the process is automatic. We have a much much greater better color balance
here we got much more vibrant colors and notice the definition. Inside the images are incredible details. Almost giving the look of
three-dimensional look because you can see here that the quarterback here is almost jumping out at you from the
background. You see the background here the depth of field is much
more greater than the original photograph. Let’s take a look back here
in our history and look at the old picture. This is what was published
but with the simple action script this is what you could have seen. Some people may look at this and say
is too sharp. Keep in mind, this is very important, when the image goes into the RIP, the
raster image processor in prepress, and gets converted into a screen – with an FM screen we are running –
the image automatically will soften up. So to give you a better idea, look at it at the
sixty-six percent and it will give you an idea of how
that actually will look when printed. You can see it’s cleaned up a little more here and again very
sharp. And compare with the old, to the new, this’ll give you true high definition
color in your next printed project. Combine this with
the Never Convert to CMYK video at HiDefColor.com and your images will be saved with the
correct RGB profile and converted to CMYK during the export out of InDesign. Well, thanks for tuning in. Have a good day.
Take care…
