Watch the above video for a demonstration of the action and customisation tutorial.

Shimmer Photoshop Action

Creating stunning light effects from your photos with this easy to use action!

Every time you run the action you will get a different result, even if you use the same brushed area! You then have full layer control, so if there is a sparkle you don’t want then simply hide the layer, or you can even duplicate layers to build more sparkles. 10 color options are also created by the action.

The action has been tested and working on Photoshop (English version) CS3,CS4,CS5,CS6,CC,CC 2015.5+.

The action will ONLY work on English versions of Photoshop.

If you are using another language, you can always follow these steps in the video below to change it to English. You can then change it back to your native language after you have run the action. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GJAiu5W2gLE

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 2500px – 3500px. 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.

SevenStyles Photoshop Actions are designed to save you hours, days, weeks or months of work. They are created in a way that both Photoshop beginners and experts can use, saving you lots of time working on both personal or commercial projects.

Share your creativity

Created something awesome with SevenStyles Actions? Share your designs on the SevenStyles Facebook page and inspire others to apply the effects in ways they may not have thought of.

Combine actions

If you own multiple actions, have you thought about stacking the effects to build even more advanced designs? Below there are over 95 actions to choose from – this is where you can get really creative!


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 - I have not tested it with Elements but I highly doubt it would work. I would advise not to as the lowest I have tested is CS3. Thanks

    Hey! The Action works from CS3 to the current CC 2018. Please load the Action inside the 'CC 2017+' folder if you are using CC 2018. The '+' on the folder just indicates that the Action inside that folder will work on Photoshop CC 2017 and above. If you are still stuck please email me. My email address is on the help page here. Scroll down the page and click 'Show More', from there you will see my email address in the large bold text. Thanks

    Hey! Sorry for the delay. I dont quite understand what problem you are facing, would you mind emailing me so I can send you a file to test out? It could be an issue with your file setup or something wrong with your preference files that might be causing the issue. My email address is on the help page here Thanks

    Hi! If you experience issues with this action or any others, please firstly watch the video tutorial to ensure you have followed the steps in setting up your PSD file correctly. Here is my YouTube channel. If you are sure you have done everything right, please have a read through the help page here. There maybe something mentioned on this page that solves your problem. Each action is heavily tested and must pass a reviewer test before being made public to download, so it is highly unlikely that it is an error with the action itsself. Nearly all cases of a user experiencing an error is due to the PSD file not being setup correctly, or corrupted Photoshop preference files. Lastly, feel free to send me an email to assist you further if you feel you have tried everything possible. My email address is on the help page. Thanks everyone :)

    Hi - Its best if you can send me an email so I can send you a test file to run. This test file will help me identify if it's an issue with your file setup, if you are using the wrong Action version or if you possibly have corrupted user preference files which need to be reset. If you can indicate in your email what Action you are using and which version of Photoshop. My email address is on the help page here. Thanks

    First of all, congratulations to the creator of the action, the result is excellent !! MY QUESTION: could you add support for Spanish language in the action? The idea is to avoid changing the language to english when I want to apply the action... keep in mind that Spanish is the 2nd language in the world. Thanks in advance

    Thanks for the feedback! I am sorry that there is no simple way to quickly change the language for Action playback. Ideally, it would just be an option in the Action panel to switch to 'English' layer names so that the Action plays back across any language setup in Photoshop. I am hoping Adobe will add this kind of support in the near future. Adding support for multiple languages is difficult as I need to record each Action differently.

    Hi - Can you ensure your photoshop document is in RGB color mode and 8bits/channel? So go to the menu (Image > Mode) to check that. If that is setup correcntly, can you please reset your preference files as outlined on the help page here. 'Colour Range' is a standard Photoshop tool that should always load, so this unusual errors leads me to believe there is an issues with your preference files. Thanks

    When I run the function, everything appears to run OK, except several times in the action it will pause and say "The command "Delete" is not currently available." and the option to either STOP the action or CONTINUE the action. I hit continue and it goes through the whole process, stopping several times with the same message. The end result is not as what I would have expected so something is clearly critical in that DELETE step. Thoughts?

    Hey! If you are using Photoshop CC 2015.5, can you please read the note about updating your Photoshop on the help page here. This error is most likely showing because you are running an incorrect action version for your version of Photoshop. If you are using Photoshop CC 2015.5, can you ensure you have fully updated it to CC 2015.5.1. After updating, make sure you are loading the action found inside the "CC 2015.5+" folder in the download. If you have done that and still having troubles, please email me and I will assist. My email address is on the help page here. Thanks
