I kinda feel like the New Scripted Patterns for Adobe Photoshop CS6 got slept on. I haven’t heard much buzz about it so I figured I’d check them out and see what this “New Feature” is all about =D
STILL, I’m learning some cool techniques that will help me out in my field as a Creative Professional.
When I saw the Random Scripted Fill, the light bulb in my head went off! It was a cool look and I just saw TIME SAVER.
After applying the Scripted fill for the first time, I already wanted more control over how my fills would turn out. This week I came across an article that had a free script for “Scripted Fill UI” and it is just that. You can make some simple adjustments to your fills with it. There’s a link at the end of this blog where you can download the same scripts I used in this post.
This is what the Scripted UI looks like when you first launch it.
Here you can see where I added new Fill Scripts.
This was my first look at scripts for Photoshop so I know I’ve only scratched the surface. What I did pick up was that Photoshop Scripts mean automation. I’ve been playing with Actions and Scripts appear to be Actions on steroids =D
It’s basically a .JSX file that get’s placed into specific directories to be called on later when you’re designing. You apply them to your existing patterns and the scripts will change your patterns behavior. You turn a tile pattern into a Brick, Swirl, Weave, Random, or other patterns.
