Two quick little actions for making snow and rain animated icons just like these... Action setThere are four actions, however only the 'rain effect' and 'Big snow effect' actions created completed icons, the other tow are used to create each layer. I've made these actions in PSCS2, they will work to create the layers in PS7 (I've tried it) but you'd need to do all the animation.When you're using make sure you start with an image 200x200px and a resolution of 72. Make sure you only have one layer called 'Background' (the easiest thing is to just flatten the image if you're dragging to a new image) or they won't work.How to load actions1. Unzip the weather.atn file to a suitable folder (I have an 'actions' folder in my documents)2. On your actions tab (Alt+F9 if it's not showing)click the small arrow on the right hand side to open menu3. 'Load Actions'4. Select weather.atn from file you unziped to5. Play selected action by clicking on it and then the little 'play' icon at the bottom of the tabOnce the action is finished all you need to do is save the file as a gif.
This is cool! I will have to try them out. Thanks for sharing!will credit if I use :)
Awesome. I've put the post in my memories and will try (I use PS7). Credit will be given as usual :)
ok, i downloaded and tried it, but when i click 'save as', it asks 'discard hidden layers and animation frames?' and when i click 'cancel' it doesn't save at all, when i click 'yes', it saves, but not as an animation. i'm using pscs2 and i tried the big snow effect..
Are you trying to it as animation or just a still icon? If you want to save it as an animation, go to WINDOW > ANIMATION and the animation panel will come up. Then do your animation like you want. Do FILE > SAVE FOR WEB and hit okay.
OOOHH, ok, cool thanks, it worked now.*feels stupid*great effects btw =)
Awesome! Thanks for these...very much appreciated and will save me a lot of time.
I found this interesting and useful. I downloaded it and I will look at it sometime soon. Thank you.
Looks fab. Have downloaded and will credit in resources and when used. Thank you!
Downloaded. Thanks for sharing.
Thank you for this. :)
Gonna download to see if this makes it any faster. Thanks!
do you know if they will work in PSP8, I want to make an icon with snow.
These are great. Thanks much :)
HI!! I tried these actions but when I saved it, it saved as an icon and not as an animation... I also followed the Window>Animation part, but the 'Animation' thing isn't there, what can i do?
You need to open it in ImageReady =).
Thank you ^_^, this will shorten the time for making icons for me.
awesome, thanks for sharing! =)
I still can't do it =/ I mean.. i opened ImageReady but.. what i have to do there? Just save it?
Hi Clare! I was hoping that you would upload the brushes that are gone, but I just read that your hardware crashed and perhaps they are gone too? I had backup but the cd seems to be corrupted, and I so love your brushes!
Taken and credited!
THANKS for this been looking for it for a while lol
Hi,This link doesn't work any more, do you have an alternate one? Thanks :)
