This is the ultimate Photoshop action when it comes to photo retouching and professional effects! It enhances portrait features, cleans up imperfections, adjusts lightness, contrast, saturation, tonal values and sets a ton of moods for your pictures: purple and orange tones, black-and-white, sepia, warm tones, cool tones, old, modern and even combinations of all these.
The action is very easy to use: open the image and run the action. The result: it creates all the effects organized into groups, which you can easily customize at your own discretion. To make it even easier for you to use, we’ve colored the layer groups: the blue groups retouch the picture and the green ones add photo effects.
The retouching layers require your personal touch: for each effect, you select the layer mask and roughly paint with your mouse over the areas you want retouched. The whole process takes less than 5 minutes and it’s very fun to run through it.
Applying the photo effects it’s even easier! Simply turn on the visibility of the layer group and the effect is ready. Either you want to use them as single effects or stack them up, it is up to you. You can adjust the strength of each effect by varying the Opacity setting of the layer groups.
