12x24 Resize Action

Earlier today, we posted a step-by-step tutorial on how to "cut" a 12x24 layout into 2 12x12 files.

Some of us would just rather click an action to make it all happen. Life's too short, right? No need to waste time on tedious cropping.



This Photoshop action will take your 300dpi 12x24 or 7200x3600 layout, and cut it into 2 3600x3600 layouts, which is just perfect for printing them with us here at Persnickety!

Your 12x12 layouts will be saved on your Desktop as left.jpg and right.jpg- where you can easily find them, and re-name them if necessary.

Here is your Free Download.

Enjoy!

    1. Hi JustTJ- If you are a MAC & using a CS program, all you need to simply drag the action into photoshop. done.
      For more specifics, or if you are working in Elements- you will need to install it into a specific folder-
