Freebies! Who wants FREE Photoshop Actions?

Here's what the B/W High Key action will give you:


The header of this blog was also done using the B/W High Key action. I've used it many times. It's fun to run the action and then drag the black and white image over the top of the same image in color and lower the opacity of the b/w image. It will result in a very cool look.

Here's the result you will get with the Dreamy action:


Click the images to open up a new window with a larger viewing size.

This may not have been the best photo for the before/after, but you see what it does. This action is good for wedding photography or dressy events or perhaps a little girl in a field of flowers. You get the point. Also, I created these actions in PSCS2, but I have used them in PSCS3, as well. I can't say whether they'll work in 4 as I just don't have it to try. If you try it and find out please let me know if it's a ya or nay.


You don't have to give me credit if you don't want to do so, but please don't take the credit yourself if any credit is given. ;-) That's just not nice.

If you want to show me your work just leave a link to your uploaded photo in the comments section. I'd really love to see what you can do with the actions.

The red arrow is pointing to the box to click on for inserting images into your posts. You can click and drag images anywhere once you see it in your post.
6. After you're done typing up your post you click on the orange button that says, "Publish Post".
That's all! Easy Peasy!

Feel free to do a "Test Post" if you'd like.

I will also type up instructions on the more detailed issues of posting if you all would like for me to do that.

This is our 10-month old cat who weighs about 15 pounds! I put a rose on the table to see what he would do, and I got this shot, which is my favorite photo of him. I used Photoshop to intensify the color of the rose, which was a very light pink. And I cloned out an out-of-focus leaf at the edge of the table, carefully aligning the grain of the wood.
