Can anyone recommend a simple action to create double exposure effects in Ps.
Something that will allow quick looks at different blend modes and opacities etc.
Not necessary to make/have masks but rather an old-time film camera double exposure layering one image on another.
I know it can be done manually, but an action may speed up the process and allow a variety of results to choose from.
If there isn't one then perhaps a really good tutorial from which I could create an action ?
Probably most users won't understand what you exactly want, so the chances to get help highly decreases.
I'm not sure what you mean? Is the question unclear?
Is the question unclear?
I think so.
Double exposure would mean combining more than one image (which poses problems in Actions, not necessarily unsurmountable ones, but still) – how are you trying to set that up?
What is the material you start with, what results are you hoping for, …?
Please consider that when talking about work in Photoshop posting screenshots or sketches might help clarify the issue.
Believe me, your description generates too many options. Don't miss screenshots next time.
I browse images in Bridge and i could select 2 images and use the action to open the two and layer/stack them.
Then change their blend modes to try out a few (screen, lighten, darken etc) & opacities and perhaps have those options available as layers which can turn on/off in order to choose one (& delete the rest). I thought there may an action available. I'll try and create one.
