6.14.12 – Photoshop Actions

14 Jun

Like I wrote yesterday, I am trying to complete one craft and work on my photography at least once per week until Baby Pott arrives. Today was a beautiful day, so I did some reading in one of my photography books while catching some rays. Later, I decided to review some of my notes from my photography class and play around with actions in Photoshop. My photography instructor told us about this great blog (The Coffee Shop Blog) with free actions available for download.

I used a couple of pictures I took previously to try them out. First, I tried Storybook Vintage on this cute little picture of Baby Pott’s future bestie:

Then I tried Urban Grit on a picture I took of the harbor on our Baltimore trip. I did some initial work to the pic before I used the action as you can probably tell from the before shot.

Cool, huh? These pics weren’t necessarily ideal for the actions I was using, but I wanted to try a couple of them. I still have a lot to learn, but it’s time for dinner. 🙂 Week one of meeting goals = CHECK!
