Does this work for anyone (Watercolor Artist Action Set from Adobe Create Magazine.zip) with Adobe Photoshop 2021? It would be an amazing action set to have, but it just errors out saying "Could not rasterize because the selected pattern is not available." and that a bunch of the actions just don't work or aren't available.

 

This would be so cute and useful... if it ever worked. THe original article outlining the steps of how to use it is here Transform Photos into Watercolors with a Free Photoshop Action.

OMG folks. Okay. SO OF COURSE, as soon as I posted this, I discovered the steps for Adobe Photoshop 2020:

* If you are running Adobe Photoshop 2020, please use this updated installation guide. (Direct link: https://www.dropbox.com/s/62ualeqm3xf6hyw/Watercolor%20Artist%20-%20Guide%202020%20Update.pdf?dl=0)

 

So. I installed as per this documentation on Adobe Photoshop 2021, used a 3000 pixel image, and it took a good 5 mins on my laptop, in order to complete, but this Action Set works. And I quite s

So glad it's working for you. It's still working fine for me also. I'm guessing we might have different versions somehow which is why the step is in a different place? In any case, I'm glad this helped.

This action won't work in Photoshop 24.1 although it has just been promoted by Adobe in an email. I tried to follow your edits but please explain what you mean by edit the 'Select and Mask' step. Also, I have found two of these steps so assume they both need editing. Further, I can't find access in Photoshop 24.1 to the Refine Mode in your screenshot, please explain how to do so. Thanks in anticipation of your reply.

I'm using Photoshop version 23.5.3 so maybe things are different than your version. These are the notes I posted before. When you find the Select and Mask step in the Action (using the screenshot I posted to see where it is near the end of the action), then you double-click on that step to be able to edit it. A box will open once you've double-clicked on it. In that box for Refine Mode select "Object Aware" instead of "Color Aware." Click OK. I only had to do this in one place and it's been working fine for me. Hope that helps.

Thank you for your quick reply. I made the edit suggested and the action
continued for longer but there were many stoppages because something was
missing, not available or could not rasterize. After wasting a lot of
time I will look for an alternative action as there are many available.

All of my work is created using this action set but I do use CS6. In my zoomable galleries section you  can pan, zoom and soak up every little pencil sketch, brush stroke and paint splattter (on simulated paper texture as it will appear in final print)! Be sure to use the accompanying toolbar to enable FULL SCREEN mode for a truly immersive experience.

I see the moderator removed the link to my website which shows many examples of the application of this Watercolor Artist script. Simply do an internet search for the term: Lakeshore Digital Art.

I wish even the instructional videos attached to the tutorials worked but unfortunately, all 3 play the same video, the installation part.  My problem was that so many commands were "unavailable" as well and I end up with a big blob at the end of the action set.
