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

Hi! Just wanted to point out that the links in the official Adobe Discover page are now working with and updated version of Watercolor Artist (update late March 2024, tested on PS 25).

 

You can delete the previous version and use just this one.

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 have CS5 and the action would crash on it. So I finally subscribed and the action still doesn't work.

I'm saddened by this.

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.

FYI, I have tested BOTH the CS6 version and the PS 2022 version of the Watercolor Artist action set within Photoshop Elements 2023 and to my surprise they both work just fine with two minor stoppages that one can click through:
1. Box Blur is missing
2. Command "Set" cannot be found. 
Just remember that you must install 3 separate components before running the two scripts (Setup; Watercolor Artist): Select the Pattern Brush and use the brush menu to load the Watercolor Patterns (navigate to your saved location). Select the Brush tool, open using the Brush menu (hidden near the brush) and load the Watercolor Brush set (navigate to your saved location). Finally, open the Actions Panel and use the menu to load the Watercolor Action (navigate to your saved location). I highly recommend images that are 4800px X 6000px (16"x20" output) for best looking results. Now that you have your ~50 layers of transformations go through each and every layer to hide/display/modify. I feel many of his settings and effects are inappropriate and need to be removed/added/adjusted.
