Getting Started With Storyboard

Getting Started with Storyboard 3 from Sean McGrath on Vimeo.

Configuring Storyboard

The first thing you will want to do after installing Storyboard is configure it for your blog.

So open Photoshop and go to File > Scripts > Storyboard Configuration... in the menu bar.

There are three main sections that you will need to pay attention to.

#1 - Set how wide you want your finished storyboards to be, the spacing between them, and the color the spacing will be.

#2 - Storyboards look best when sharpened, so choose a good web sharpening action here if you have one.


#3 - Choose where Storyboard will save your blog-ready images.

Those are the basics of setting up Storyboard, but there are a lot of other options to play with to make Storyboard fit your workflow. Take some time and experiment with them, and if you are unsure what some of them do, hover your mouse over a setting and a tooltip will display with more detailed information.

Running Storyboard

Now that you have Storyboard configured for your blog, it's time to start creating some images for you to upload.

There are two main ways to create your storyboards:

  1. File > Scripts > Storyboard
  2. File > Scripts > Storyboard Designer

Storyboard - This method will prompt you continuously for images to either merge together in a row (diptychs, triptychs, etc) or save as a series of single image rows.

Storyboard Designer - With this method, you select all of the images you potentially want in your blog post and then cull, reorder and merge them in a visual drag and drop interface.
