Photoshop Actions

Happy Friday everyone! I wanted to take the time to share some really good photo effects that I found through one of my favorite blogs, A Beautiful Mess.

I've always admired this blog, run by two sisters, Emma and Elsie. I was just playing around, reading posts and looking for design ideas when I found a post about Photoshop actions. After reading the post, I found that they actually sell these actions and they are easily downloadable. I thought, why not?

I use Photoshop Elements 6 for everything when it comes to editing. They provide a small starter package specifically for Photoshop Elements, The Elements Collection. They also offer starter packs for Photoshop, The Mini Collection, and Lightroom, The Lightroom Collection. Each collection has ten of some of their most popular actions to boost the professional look of your photos, and each collection costs only $10!

Of the group of ten actions which I received, my favorites include Millie, Harper, Nico, Mia and Wendy. One of the best parts about these is that you can overlap them to create unique effects.

Take a look at some of my own before and afters!

Let me know if you guys like posts about photography itself rather than just on places and be sure to check out A Beautiful Mess and their shop A Beautiful Mess Shop. Have a wonderful day and enjoy the weekend!
