Tips & Help
If you need assistance with this action or any others, please visit the help page here. This page covers FAQ, general knowledge about the actions and ways you could make money with them. My email address is listed on the help page if you are still stuck.

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.
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.
