Creating a Realistic Digital Embellishment is Just a Few Clicks Away

Creating A Realistic Embellishment is

Just a Few Clicks Away with Actions

How To By Maggie Lamarre,

Supplies Used
Tracy King Buttons Action @Dragonflairestudios.com
(These actions are for Photoshop only- not valid for other software)


What I love about Tracy King’s actions is the ability to modify the elements as you are creating them, such the bevel and the shadows to your preferences..

Let’s begin
  • Download the action and install into a folder.
  • In Photoshop go to windows select actions
  • Then on the action fly out menu click on the triangle, select load action and select the folder the Tracykingbutton ATN action.
  • Open the paper you want to use for the button, then select the action and select play.
  • During the action it will pause and let you modify the bevel.
  • Then next is to modify the shadow.
  • I usually create my shadows manually with a paint brush for a more realistic shadow..
Voila you are done..
