Recently I’ve found the world of actions and presets. WOAH. I mean, I like editing by hand, too, but these are a helpful place to start. A blog I like pointed me to MCP Photoshop Actions &Lightroom Presets, and I’m in love wit the “touch of light, touch of dark” action. It’s been fun to take old photos I have and see if I can improve them. So here’s one using the “touch of light, touch of dark” as well as the before and after action from the “free Photoshop fix” pack.
So edit a photo you took any way you want, send it to me. No worries, yours doesn’t have to be as elaborate as mine, just get out there and have fun!
