photo tip : photo actions

I love Photoshop actions. At one time, I think I was addicted to them. I would visit various websites and stare at the "before" and "after" images in total amazement. It's like a magic trick. One click, and your images change right before your eyes. As my son would say, "cool tuff!"

For those of you who are not familiar, Photoshop Actions are kinda like Photoshop recipes, but you are able to record and automate the steps. You can make your own actions, or you can purchase them through different websites.

Some of my favorite actions are Florabella Actions, Totally Rad Actions, Itty Bitty Actions and MCP Actions. These actions transforms your images to give a certain look. Here are some examples:

What do you think? You definitely have to take your time to play around with the actions, but it's super fun once you get the hang of it. You can also change the opacity, or use several different actions on one image. It's limitless and amazing.
 
Do you have a favorite action?
