My Photoshop Actions

Sometimes I receive questions from readers about how I add that “vintage look” to the photos on my blog. Through the years I’ve experimented with different Photoshop actions, which compile a series of edits to achieve a specific style for an image. But I found that developing my own set of actions was the only way I would get a subtle look that perfectly suits my style. I wanted to let you know, if you’re interested in achieving the same look for your photos, I’m selling the action set that I made for $30, with the PayPal check out at the pink button below. If you guys have any questions about the actions, I’ll be answering them in the comments section below. Check out what you get in the set (plus a couple of surprise bonuses for bloggers) below!

    Love them! Thank you for sharing them!

  2. I didn’t even know photoshop had add-ons and I have been using it for years!!! My Pentax camera has a strange raw program that goes with photoshop that I tend to use and enjoy. Love seeing the side by side comparison here!!!

    Hi Mandi,

    Love this! I’m just starting to learn how to use Photoshop and so far only know how to make a simple flyer. Haven’t really gotten to experimenting with photos yet. Is your action set alsof suited for a newby like me, or do I need more experience first?

    Thanks!

      Loes,
      The actions are a way to edit your photos to achieve a certain look. When you open an image into Photoshop, you have an option for windows to display on your workspace. One of the windows is an action window. Photoshop comes with certain actions (which I never use), and you have the option to load actions, by using the drop-down menu on the actions window. This is where you would load the saved actions file from me, and then it will display all of the options that come with my action set. You select the one you want to try, and simply hit play! That’s it! If you aren’t sure about going backwards, or reverting to your original image, it’s always helpful to duplicate an image before playing an action. This can be done under the “Image” tab of your toolbar at the top of your workspace, by hitting “Duplicate.”
      I hope that helps you understand a bit about how actions are used, and how easy they are to use. :)
