Ever wondered where the expression “Photoshopping” comes from?

You’re about to find out! Photoshop photo effects are creative photo adjustments that can transform your images into beautiful works of art, or simply improve lighting and tones to help achieve the atmosphere you were going for, as well as correct imperfections and enhance photos for all sorts of projects. Designers can create them by scratch with the help of a few settings or use time-saving Photoshop actions to facilitate the process.

And time savers they are! Once you’ve downloaded the asset, it takes one click to add a great effect to your photo. Because they’re so easy to use, they’re also perfect for beginners. You’ll be able to transform your image and achieve top-quality results no matter your proficiency level with Photoshop. And obviously, once the effect is yours you can use it as many times as you like, on as many photos as you like. So if you want to create a cohesive photo series you’ll need to buy one effect only.
