Lightroom and Photoshop Actions for Your Photos

Not all of us are professional photographers. I only wish that I were. Frankly, I often have do a lot of tweaking in Photoshop to get my photos to look exactly how I want.

Did you know that you can purchase and download a set of actions that will tweak your photos for you? For Photoshop they are called "actions" and they basically perform the same steps that you might otherwise take to alter your photos but do it in one and easy step. Smart and creative people have predesigned the steps you would take and then created a set of steps that Photoshop (or Lightroom) will follow to tweak your photo.

For instance, here is one of my photos straight out of the camera:


And then I ran this action set:

Which gave me this photo (look how bright it now looks):



Looking for a great tutorial on how to use Photoshop actions? Be sure to read through this tutorial HERE, which I found very helpful.

2Peas is now offering both Photoshop Actions and Lightroom Presets. I wanted to share these from Adrienne Looman as there are several that I've added to my wishlist.

Just think of all the fun things you can now do with your photos. Not being a professional photographer will never be an excuse you can use again. :)
