In this section, we are going to create guidelines for our Photoshop flyer template. Press Control-R on your keyboard to show the Rulers. Then, using the Move Tool (V), click and drag from the ruler to the canvas to create a new guide. Create four guides and position each 0.25 in away from the canvas.

4. How to Add Photos and Apply a Photoshop Action

Step 1

In this section, we’re going to add photos to the design and apply a Photoshop action to one of them. Go to File > Open, select the photo from the first stock photo link, and click Open. Then, press Control-Shift-N on your keyboard to create a new layer and name it brush. After that, while the brush
layer is selected, brush over the subject with a color. You can also
make a selection of the subject and fill the selection with a color
instead.

Step 2

Now select the Energy Photoshop Action and click on the Play button. After the action has finished, customize the effect as you like. I’ve hidden most of the adjustment layers to avoid stacking adjustments, as we are going to add these on top of the flyer template later. You can check out the video
tutorial (link included in the action help file) for a demonstration of
how to use the action and also how to customize the results to get the most out of the effect.
