I came across this blog the other day called My Four Hens Photography.. Boy can this lady take a good picture. She also has a website where she sells her own Photoshop Actions and the best thing about it, is that she has some that are compatible with photoshop elements. She currently has some freebies on her website at the moment that you should pick up if you are interested.
Basically what a photoshop action does is helps to enhance your photo to make it the best it can possibly be. Variations can be very evident and others are much softer and less noticable.
Here are some examples i have used on a photo on Nic. The first one is the original.. and the others are the same photo, with an action run on them.
So as you can see it can change your photo to look simply amazing. I still have soooooooooooo much to learn with Photo actions, and i probably dont use them to the best of their ability, but i am loving learning about them.
Can't wait for little Baby Boo to come in 3 weeks time to practise even more!!
Hope you are having a great week!!
