Triptych Actions FAQ

Thank you for purchasing the Triptych Action Pack from gavtrain.com.

The videos below should help answer the most common questions you may have including installing the actions and using the actions.

Installing the actions









Triptych From a single photo









Add your photos to a blank triptych









Change the background colour









With a total of 79 actions in the pack, we split them into four sets (or folders to make them a little easier to organise.

Triptych Blank Landscape – Gavtrain.atn
These create a blank triptych template consisting of three tall panels on a canvas that’s landscape in format. This set contains 20 actions, each creates a different border or shaped panel. After the action has completed you can replace the black images with a photo of your own.

Triptych Blank Square – Gavtrain.atn
These create a blank triptych template consisting of three square panels on a canvas that’s landscape in format. This set contains 20 actions, each creates a different border or shaped panel. After the action has completed you can replace the black images with a photo of your own.
NOTE the final template is very high resolution and may take some time to create on older/slower computers.

Triptych Landscape – Gavtrain.atn
These create a triptych consisting of three tall panels from an image already open in Photoshop. They are designed to work with Square or Landscape format photos. This set contains 20 actions, each creates a different border or shaped panel.

FAQ’s

  1. Can I put the actions on more then one computer? The licence is for one user, so yes you can as long as YOU are the person using the actions.
  2. Can I buy just one or two of the actions rather then the whole set? Sorry, they only came as a set
  3. Will the actions work in Elements? No. Some of these actions use things that are not inside of Photoshop Elements
  4. Are the actions going to overwrite my original image? No. These actions apply the effect only to a copy of your image and never the original. That said it’s always a good idea to save your work before running the actions.
  5. Do I need a powerful computer to run these actions? All the actions will work just fine on any computer, but some of the actions use a lot of steps which can take a several minutes to run, so please be patient.
  6. What size images will they work on? In theory the actions will work on any sized image, but the best results will be seen on images that are between 2000-5000 pixels on the longest edge. Basically the bigger the image (number of pixels) the smaller the effect will appear.
  7. Are they’re any options or controls I need to set? No. All the actions require just one click on the play button. You can then sit back and watch the triptych being made.
  8. I’d like to adjust the finished triptych, is that possible? Yes you can. After the action has run you’ll have access to all the layers which make up the effect. These can be adjusted as you see fit.
  9. Can I resell or pass on the actions? No that is strictly forbidden. As is tweaking the action steps and then passing them off as your own
  10. Do you offer a help or advice on how to use the actions? We don’t offer email or phone support but we do have an information page with 20 minutes worth of video advice for everything from installing the actions to adapting the end result. http://www.gavtrain.com/?page_id=3055
