Photo Actions are a wonderful tool I use a lot in Photoshop Elements. The thing I love about actions is that you can take a good or average photo and make it incredible. Actions simplify the step-by-step editing process and create effects or looks on your photos.
I recently purchased these photo actions: Florabella Luxe Photo Actions, her photography is stunning, too.....just go and drool. ;)
Then Gayle took some photos of me and I played in Photoshop for a couple of hours.....just trying out the different ones....so much fun to see the amazing effects you can get with just one or two clicks. These are so worth the money. Here's a few I played with:
Emma let me do a little photoshoot earlier this week, too....so lots of new photos to play with. This is one expecially tugs at my heart - she looks so grown up.
If you are wondering how to install your actions here is a really great tutorial: Installing Actions in PSE. There are many great free ones out there, too, to get you started....a couple of my faves are: Pioneer Woman and Coffee Shop.
Do you have any favorite actions on your list?
