My Photoshop Actions

I've received so many requests lately as to the Photoshop actions I use on my photos.  I've developed my own unique set of actions that I use on most of my photos, and now I'm making them available to you!

This action is used for photos with an average range of colors. When using this action, your photos will become warmer and softer, with a bit of a vintage vibe. It works the best on lighter photos. If your photos are dark, use one of my two brightening actions before running this one on your photo.

If you have a lot of dark colors in your photo, this action for darker colors will work better than the one above.  Again, if your photo is all together too dark to begin with, use one of my lightening actions before running this one.

When your photos are too dark, run this "lightest and brightest" action and it will brighten them into a much more cheerful image.  If your photo is dark, but not as dark as the original above, use the "lighter and brighter" action below.  It is a less intense version of the one above.

If you would like to purchase my Photoshop action set, it is available for $30.  Just complete your order with this "buy now" button, which will direct you to a Paypal checkout. Be sure to include a message with your e-mail address, so that I can send you the action file, which will include each of these four actions.





Photoshop Class | by sponsor Genre Creative

Photoshopped

Five years ago I was so frustrated with my photography, and wanted to do more. Starting out, all I knew was that I wanted a "blurry background" and softer, more natural colors in my photos. Three cameras and four years later, I've taught myself a lot about shooting in manual, utilizing lenses, and editing in photoshop, but it sure would've been easier if I had help.

If you're still in the early days of your own photography journey, and live around the Ohio area, you might want to check out Genre Creative's Photoshopped Class on November 12-13. It's a two day class in our state capital of Columbus (lots of fun things to do when class is over!) that cuts to the chase with how to get the best from your camera and also how to edit and creative actions in Photoshop.

I highly suggest checking out the class if any of the following descriptions sound like you:

  • novice photographer eager to learn more
  • new DSLR owner
  • wanting to take the next step into the digital imaging world
  • budding blogger wanting to learn photography & photoshop
  • eager to explore the unique city of Columbus, Ohio

If you are unable to attend, you might want to check out Genre Creative's blog for other photography and photoshop talk!
