Need Assistance?

If you need assistance with this Action or any other Sevenstyles Action, please firstly ensure you have watched the video tutorial for the Action you are using. Each Sevenstyles Action comes with a comprehensive video tutorial on how to set up your Photoshop file and how to customize your results. You can find a link to the tutorial in the above thumbnail link, or in the readme file included in the download. If you are still experiencing issues, please visit the help page here. This page covers Sevenstyles Action update announcements, FAQ, general knowledge about Sevenstyles Actions and ways you could make money with them.

Tested

Each Action is thoroughly tested across between 50 – 150 different photos to ensure there are no errors. In the case where you do experience an error, please firstly visit the help page and then contact me via email if you are still having troubles. My email address can be found on the help page.

The Best Results

For the best results, it is recommended to use high resolution photos in the range of 1500px – 3500px. The optimal range is from 2300px – 4500px. The detail and clarity in the effects generated by the actions reduce the smaller your photo is.

Organised

After each action has finished playing, it creates a well organised layer structure. Each layer and folder are named appropriately and color coded to create a neat working environment for you. Not only is the layer structure organised, each action comes with a highly detailed video tutorial teaching you about how each layer affects the design and how you can make customisations to it. Here is my YouTube channel.

How do I combine actions?

  1. Run the first action on your photo.
  2. Once you are happy with the design, save your image out.
  3. Now re-open your image and run another action!
You can then use the 2nd actions layer flexibility to further customize the design. You can follow this process and stack effects to build incredibly detailed designs with very little work.

    Hey! That error will show if Photoshop cannot located the brushes in your brushes panel. Please ensure you have the brushes correctly loaded as shown in the video tutorial. Also ensure the brush opacity is set to 100% before running the action. This error along with the solution is on the help page here. Send me over an email if your still stuck, my email address is on the help page. Thanks

    Just downloaded today from Envato. Tried multiple images from 1800 to 4000 max dimension. Have checked all help pages and followed instructions. Reset preferences, mode settings and all others suggested. Using PS 2015.5.1. Many errors on running action, no pixels, make, select, fill, set. This action looks great in the tutorial, but I can't use it until I find out how to avoid these errors. The very first error is "No pixels selected".

    Hey! That error is typically caused either if you do not have your brush opacity at 100% before running the action, or you have 'Use Pen Pressure for Opacity' turned on - see image below: In any case it will be a psd file setup error thats causing the issue. Have a quick read over the help page here and then email me if you are still having issues. Thanks

    Hi Seven Styles, very impressed with the software - so far I've tried Artist in only one file, realize will have to shrink down a bit my oversized files and give it another shot.Now am trying to use the Sketch Action, but could not find the pattern (PAT) file in the download, so I'm stuck. Redownloaded and re-unzipped with no change. Please advise. Thanks!

    Hey! Yeah, from my experience, the best photo size range to use Actions on is between 1500 - 3500 pixels. Whilst they will work on larger photos, you tend to see much longer playback times due to CPU and memory usage being attacked. There is no .pat file included in the this Action, you only need to load the 'Sketch_Brushes.abr' file into your brushes panel before running the Action. Where are you seeing that a pattern file is included? Please email me if you are still stuck. My email address is on the help page here. Scroll down the page and click 'Show More', you will then see my email address is large bold text. Thanks

    Just recently purchased this item. It's not working. I am getting the following error every time I run the action: “The command “Select” is not currently available”. I am offered the option to stop or continue. I have attempted to restart Photoshop, but it doesn’t appear to fix the problem. Please advise.

    Hey! The 'Select' error is most commonly caused by the Action brushes not being loaded into the brushes panel before running the Action. Photoshop may be attempting to 'Select' a brush that it cannot find. Just make sure you have loaded the brushes as shown at 3:20 of the tutorial here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cnfY26UHj_4&feature=youtu.be The other solutions to the 'Select' error can be found on the help page here. If you are still having troubles please email me. My email address is on the help page. Thanks

    Hey - Can you please send me an email with the address listed on the help page here. I will send you a test file which will help me identify whats causing the issue for you. It is most likely a file setup problem which is causing the Action to not play back correctly. Thanks

    Hey! The stroke error will show if Photoshop cannot located the brushes it needs to 'Stroke' a path. Can you just ensure you have the brushes loaded into your brushes panel and the brush opacity set to 100% before running the action.

    Already have your SketchIt and HandDrawn actions, but just couldn't resist. Am eagerly waiting for next weekend to try it (I've learned to take my time to watch your video tutorials beforehand, about 30mn, yep, that's feasible...) ;-) Will probably miss a few competitions at the Olympics... Your timing for releasing your actions really sucks!!! By the way, saw your Watercolor Motion Kit cooperation with ThomasKovar. Absolutely amazing! Too bad I don't have After Effects, hope he or you will release a Sony Vegas version... Jim

    Oh awesome! The Sketch action is a much different effect to SkethIt and HandDrawn, so I think having all 3 you will have good choice over what kind of effect you want :) Haha yeah sorry about the lengthy tutorials, there is always so much to cover and I am completely out of breath by the time I finish. Yeah that was a good project to work on with Thomas! It was a first for both of us to create a hybrid project from PS > AE with as little work as possible from the user. We have lots more animations lined up so you better get AE installed !
