I know how much some of you love deep, rich, colorful photos. Just thought I’d share a quick before and after of an image edited using the HeARTy Photoshop Actions.
Photo Editing Blueprint.
1. Bland to Brilliant Great starting point for any image.
2. Plush Color
4. Color Jolt
Steps 2 thru 4 are all excellent actions for boosting richness and intensifying color. Just paint them in where needed or out where not needed using the built in layer masks.
5. Flawless Face Her skin was pretty flawless to begin with. Just masked in with a 30% opacity brush, it made it absolutely gorgeous.
6. Brown Sugar What a great warming tone.
7. Beautiful Warmth To give a nice warm feeling to the image.
8. Radiance Pained in very lightly over the skin just to give it a creamy glow.
9. Light + Shade This is non-destructive dodging and burning. I burned her lips and dodged the irises of her eyes.
10. Velvet Vignette Very rich and opulent edge vignetting to really focus the eye towards her.
11. Warm Air I’ve come to love this action for its hazy warm tones. I tweaked the internal layers some and played at a very low opacity for a finishing touch.
