I have a giveaway for you today I think you’ll just love! Our wonderful sponsor Annie of Paint the Moon is visiting to offer you a chance to win a $50 gift certificate to spend on her amazing photoshop actions and textures. I am astonished at how applying these actions to your photos completely transforms them, from blah to ohmygoodness in a few minutes. It’s magical!
I’m all about making things pretty so I started drooling over Paint the Moon actions right away but I’m not hugely technical either. So I thought you might want to know what they are before you enter-here’s the basics according to Annie:
Photoshop actions are simply a recording of all the commands used to create an effect in Photoshop or Elements. They can be replayed at the click of the “Play” button, saving you hours of time in editing as well as creating complex effects with little to no effort. Actions can be used to do simple corrections like increasing contrast and brightening an image, or can do complicated techniques like skin smoothing and selective color popping. They are also a wonderfully easy way to add an artistic flair to your images without needing to go through the tedious steps of creating the look from scratch … black and white looks, vintage looks, intense color pop, you name it. They can take a ho-hum image and turn into a WOW image in seconds, and can save an image otherwise destined for the trash into a keeper.
Here’s the proof!:
I would love to see the results of these actions and textures on product photos! And I bet you would too-so here is your chance to go shopping for your own. Annie is giving away a $50 gift certificate for use in her shop, this giveaway is open internationally and I hope you all enter (& show me your transformed pictures!).
