Because I {HEART} You!

I do not use the phrase "I {HEART} you" loosely. Nope. This is something I say only on rare and special occasions such as this.

Attention fellow photogs:
I have made up some
NEW and FREE photoshop actions
to share with you! I dare say these are some of my new favorite actions!

Note to my non-photog friends: "An Action is a recording of a series of steps or Commands in Photoshop to which you apply a name. Later on, you can play that recording back on a different file and have Photoshop do your work for you."

Macie can be our guinea pig. I say that in the most loving way a parent possibly can. Oh, and don't mind the funky little under bite she's pulling. It's a phase she's going through... hopefully it doesn't last long.

The Bump it UP! action is a simple everyday work flow action. It enhances the shadows without bumping up the highlights. This action works best on well exposed images, so if your SOOC (straight out of camera) image is a little dark you might want to lighten the image first.


Here's Jessika, my niece. Despite what it may look, she's not depressed, she's just in high school and smiling + high school = the NOT cool factor. It's just a phase she's going through... hopefully it doesn't last long. Now that I think about it, the under bite phase isn't too bad after all.

- Original image -

The Low Contrast B/W action is one of my favorite moody B/W. Same rules apply with this action as well. If your image doesn't have the right exposure you might have to lighten/darken your image to get the look you want.

And, if you're feeling crazy you can run both of the actions. Just remember you can control the strength of the actions by adjusting the opacity in the layers palette.

Hope you enjoy the actions as much as I do! Let me know watchya think :)
Much love,
Ginnie

hey you. Not sure if it is because I am on a Mac but when I download the file it comes as a html code. Just thought I would give you heads up in case anyone else has issues. Maybe I am the harna but I think I know what I am doing. Talk soon. No baby yet.
