MCP Actions Quick Purchase


I get a lot of questions from customers about what to do when Photoshop starts acting like it is in control. I am going to be posting some frequent asked questions from MCP Actions customers and blog visitors.  If you have a quick question about Photoshop you want answered, please email me and I may use it in a future blog entry.  If you have lots of questions on lengthier topics, please contact me for details on my MCP one on one training.


Question: “Oh no, where did my palettes and tools go? They vanished and I need them back”

Answer: If you lose your palette like the photo below, click your TAB key to get them back. 

If you are missing certain palettes but not others, go under Window and make sure the palettes you want are checked off.

    Here is my question:
    How do you make a border with a watermark in it? Something like this link… http://pinkletoes.com/blog/

    you make the border by extending the canvas on whichever side you want. Then you could stamp it on. you can make a watermark using the free action on my website – or at least let it guide you.
