Custom Shapes Actorial

At long last, the Custom Shapes Actorial is here. After many long hours and emails with colleagues, (Thanks guys) I bring you the Custom Shapes Actorial. This assumes you have some knowledge of Photoshop, and should be worked through carefully. Actions wil walk you through creating a custom shape from an image, creates a quick reference guide you can print out later, and automates the custom shape process for you! All I can say is Enjoy, and Practice, Practice, Practice...

Read over the Readme in the zip file. All Instructions contained within. Mac People, I zipped this with Stuffit Expander, so you should be able to open it fine. Please let me know if you can't.

You deserve every one of these 5 stars (and even more if I could give them to you). Your actorial was easy to follow, worked flawlessly, and did what it claimed to do. I was able to follow your steps and convert a shape to a custom shape in a surprisingly short time..and for this beginner that is saying a lot! I can't wait to try a more difficult project. Thank you so very much! I will be searching for more Delta Rho actorials to see what else I can learn.

Good work and well done actorial, but doing custom shapes with the magic wand is a big no-no where I work. We do all our custom shapes by hand with the pen tool, magic wand only works in some images like the eagle provided, but it makes a path that can be very jagged and sometimes cna be quite off the real image. So, great actorial, but not a good method of doing custom shapes in my opinion.
