FREE! 101 Ac­tions bun­dle

Fed up spend­ing hours edit­ing your pho­to­graphs? Dan Mold ex­plains why Ac­tions are the way to go.

Practical Photography (UK) - - Welcome -

Ap­ply loads of new spe­cial ef­fects with our big­gest ever pre­sets give­away.

AC­TIONS ARE A bril­liant way of sav­ing time in Pho­to­shop. In a nutshell, they are pre-recorded ed­its that can be re­played on any im­age you choose at the push of a but­ton. Work­ing with them is a great way to re­duce edit­ing time – which means less time spent in front of your com­puter and more time spent out­side with your cam­era!

This month we’ve bun­dled together no fewer than 101 free Ac­tions for you to en­joy, all of which have been de­signed to let you make rapid ed­its. From ad­just­ing the brightness of your pic­ture to adding con­trast, and in­creas­ing sharp­ness to ap­ply­ing retro fil­ter ef­fects, you’ll find all of these quick ed­its and more wait­ing for you in the Free Gifts folder on your disc. Just load up one of the sets that you like the sound of, then fol­low the step-by-step be­low to start us­ing them. With five sets to choose from – Black & White Ef­fects, Land­scape Ef­fects, Quick Fixes, Retro Styles and Sharp­en­ing – you’re bound to find some­thing to suit you.

You’ll eas­ily get the hang of us­ing them once you’ve ap­plied a few dif­fer­ent styles. You can even stack them for a cus­tom ef­fect – to in­crease con­trast and add a vi­gnette, sim­ply use the ‘Quick Fix - Medium Con­trast’ and ‘Quick Fix - Add Vi­gnette’ Ac­tions one af­ter the other.

Got a ver­sion of Pho­to­shop or El­e­ments? Then just open up the im­age you want to work up and let’s get stuck in.
