ETA: Actions are now available!
We are almost there! Just a couple more days until the Michelle Kane HeARTy Action Collections are available for purchase. It’s been a long time coming. I’ve really appreciated the time and helpful feedback from my action testers. And I want to give a huge shout out to my extraordinary brother, Timothy Brister, for all his time and effort in designing my packaging and Facebook tab designs. I was blown away with his creativity and how quickly he worked. I couldn’t have done this without him! xoxo

To give you an idea of what is possible with these actions, I wanted to share some images that one of my action testers sent me, along with some of what she wrote about the actions. I was blown away with her gorgeous edits.
Here’s some of what Amanda had to say:
I own a LOT of actions….I use very few and have my “go to” ones that I consistently use in order to get a consistent style. As we specialise in wedding photography, preserving the colors/feel of the day is very important to us, as is a consistent set of images that can easily work together on album spreads. So, it takes some doing for me to get a new set of actions and actually replace ones that I’ve been using for some time. Michelle’s actions are W-O-N-D-E-R-F-U-L. Seriously.I don’t and won’t endorse anything that is just “okay.” But these were very good….straight from the play button…and then the ability to tweak them to not only get ‘our style’ on the images, but to enhance it even further, was what made these a MUST HAVE for me.The one’s that helped with skin tone…well wow! These were shot on a very very hot Rarotongan day, and so extra red, extra sweat and extra sunburn appeared in all the images. Stripping that back usually takes us some time, but these made it happen in one click! I couldn’t believe it….so of course had to try it again! LOL….it’s like a magic “wonderful” button!I would have purchased the set just to get “Ignite”, “Sweet Delight” and “Dull to Dazzling”.All images edited with the actions…..mainly with those mentioned above…..basic tweaks of white balance and selective light adjustments were done in Lightroom prior to editing.
