Rob de Winter’s article on AI in Photoshop in issue 30 of CreativePro Magazine includes a clever technique for creating watercolor effects by applying Generative Fill to a partially selected layer. It works so well that once you try it, you’ll probably want to experiment with other effects using the same method. So, we thought we’d give you a head start by creating a set of actions to automate the process. The set includes ten actions for creating the following effects:

  • Watercolor Painting
  • Cross Stitch
  • Oil Painting
  • Crayon Drawing
  • Colored Pencil Drawing
  • Pastel Drawing
  • Psychedelic 60s Poster
  • Anime Cartoon
  • Pixel Art
  • Impressionist Painting
