Hey guys,

We are back with a new script (Version 0.45) of Time Slice Pictures.

What is Time Slice Photography?

Check out some cool examples below

Some more examples on google here and here.

Thus, Time Slice Photography is basically taking pictures of the same place, at different times of the day. Once we have all the pictures taken, select the best of the lot, maybe do some color correction, and then create slices such that we get 1 full image made up of various slices.

What Does this Photoshop Script/Software Do?

Well, once you have all the images in an ‘in’ folder, just run the script. The script will ask for ‘input’ folder,’output’ folder, ‘output file’ name. Just provide the input and relax, while the script does the difficult part for you. The script will create the photo slices based on the number of images found in the input folder. The script processes all images one by one and finally outputs a single jpg file, which is the final result of Time Slice Photography.

Thus making life easy for any photographer looking for a Time Slice Photography for his/her work or portfolio.

Now, let’s see the Photo Slicing Script in action below in a demo video. All images are thanks to Mr. Kirti Mandalaywala.

    1. Hi Jay,

      We have 2 versions of the script, Free and Pro. Free version has image size restrictions, Pro version doesnt.

      If you like the script, consider getting Pro Version.

      Thanks and Cheers

  1. Hi,
    For some reason the pro script starts at image 10 in the sequence and then splices the image together until it gets to the end of my images, then does 1-10. Please help.

    1. Hi Jacob,

      Kindly check the names of the images to be processed if they are in order.

      I have also sent you a personal email, kindly reply to it and I will look into it.

      Thanks for the feedback.

      Cheers

  2. This is FANTASTIC. Will be buying the pro version soon.

    Any chance of adding a diagonal option so I can do something like this?

    Not as important, but would also be great to have the option to overlap the layers slightly, to create a look like this:

    Keep up the good work!

    1. 1. Diagonal slices
      2. Slices with shadows (overlap the layers slightly)

      both of them are in pipeline and would be available with next version.

  3. Another suggestion:

    Would be great to have an option to choose WHICH frames are used.

    For example: Option for 1 in 5 images = 1, 5, 10, 15.

    That would obv change the width of strips/the effect.

    If you do that would also be great to choose the number of the FIRST image too – eg from 12, then 17, 22, 27 etc.

    This would get around some awkward positioning – eg a lamp falling in light area when it would look better lit up in the dark.

    1. Hi,

      thanks for the valued suggestion,

      Would be great to have an option to choose WHICH frames are used.
      What you mentioned will make the dialog box complicated to understand and use, I would like to keep it simple.
      Work around – You can always use the same script to do what you want, all you have to do is pre-process your input folder to contain only the images you want to process.

    1. Hi Garry,

      The script hasnt been tested on PS Elements. You can download it and give it a try.

      Let us know how it goes.

      Thanks

  4. I use the free version, when I execute the script he takes the photos randomly (photo14, photo22, photo01 etc) why?

      1. Thank you for your answer.
        It seems that the new version is a bug, I prepare the timeslice and when I click on Time Slice It the application writes me “aborted by the user”
        I am under mac hight Sierra with photoshop CC a day.

        1. Hi Nicolas,

          Thanks for the message. The ‘Aborted’ message shows up in following cases.
          A. If the Cancel button is clicked on the dialog box.
          B. If for some reason the input(s) in dialog box are not provided properly.

          The script has been tested on Windows10 latest PS and it works fine. For Mac testing, I am dependent on good users like you to debug if any issue pop’s up.

          Could you kindly rerun the script and check if all the fields are filled. If possible, Record everything and share the video for me to investigate.

          Thanks
