View Full Version : Photoshop action for rotating a shape - for compass roses

Hello. Found this forum while searching for info on making compass roses in Photoshop.

I found several PS actions on the internet that rotate a shape, but their rotation steps all had to be recreated every time you want to rotate a new shape. I came up with a 2-step action that can "learn" a pivot point and degrees of rotation.

Sorry it's not the most detailed tutorial - it was more of a "note to self," but if you're reasonably familiar with the move/transform tool and creating Photoshop actions, you should be able to figure it out, so I thought I'd share. I used CS5, but it should work in any version that has the "edit>transform>again" menu item.
