ACTIONS

BLACK & WHITE EFFECTS

Black Satin BW 1: A new, rich black and white conversion that tends to lighten the skin tones. It also adds a rich warmth in the shadows for a unique tonal quality.

Black Satin BW 2: A variation on the above with less contrast for more shadow and highlight detail.

Black Satin BW 3: A variation on the above with a slightly different color toning and similar contrast to Black Satin BW 2.

Black Satin BW 4: Same color toning as above but with less highlight contrast.

Bronzed God 1: A bronze like toning - not quite sepia, but rich and flavorful.

Bronzed God 2: Like the above, but with less overall contrast.

Bronzed God 3: Like the above again, but even less overall contrast.

Velveteen 48 and BW Satin: Combines Velveteen with the Black Satin BW look for a beautiful combo.

Velveteen sharper and BW Satin 2: Similar to the previous, but adds a separate layer above that restores some of the fine details at the expense of some of the soft feeling.


COLOR EFFECTS

Fashion Passion: For those that like cross-processed looks, but with less blue in the shadows and more pleasing skin tones than a traditional cross-processed effect.

High Fidelity: Bright, intense, like golden sunshine. Edgy and vivid.

High Fidelity Midlight: Like the above but opens up the shadows more.

Hollywood Glow: Built after our popular Hollywood Intensity action in Artistic Tools V1. Hollywood Glow adds glowing softness to the original look. This bold coloring action is great for fashion looks and outdoor scenes. Don't forget you can fade the intensity of any action by simply reducing the opacity of it's layer set.

Kiyoko Punch: A subtle, everyday type action that works great to enhance colors - especially blue skies. This was designed for a wedding client photographed in Hawaii and used on their complete set of images.

Moulin Rouge: Punchy contrast and an old world color palette. Hints of oak and sandlewood with a smooth finish. Try with cheese.

Moulin Rouge with Glow: As above but with a soft glow for more romance.

Punch Lite: A light contrast and color enhancing tool that you may want to use everyday.

Renaissance: A dramatic old world feel with more punch and contrast than Moulin Rouge.

Rich Shadows: Sometimes you just want to richen things up a bit. This works primarily on the shadows, adding localized contrast and color boost. Great when an image feels hazy or lacking in overall contrast and richness.

Super Heroine: High contrast, high key. Puts a soft wash on skin tones. Bold and sassy, like your favorite super heroine!

Tea Stained: A soft, subtle color palette similar to what you might get from tea staining a print. All natural, no caffeine.

The Look: Gentle enough to be used everyday, but adds that punch that makes images pop.

The Look with Smooth: As above, but with skin smoothing as well.

The Look 2: A variation on the color palette and more contrast.

The Look 2 with Smooth: As above, but with skin smoothing as well.

Velveteen 23: This is a rich color palette with shadows that diffuse over the highlights, similar to traditional darkroom diffusion where black netting is held under the enlarger lens. 23 indicates the intensity and higher numbers are stronger.

Velveteen 23 Reduced: As above but with reduced contrast.

Velveteen 48: Stronger intensity of color than velveteen 23.

Velveteen 48 Reduced: As above but with reduced contrast.

Velveteen 65: Strong, bold, and moody.

Velveteen with Edge Dark: As above but adds an edge darkening for more drama, similar to a vignette but follows the frame edges more closely - not a circular vignetting pattern.

Velveteen Light: You may love it so much you want to use it everyday, so this is the basic version.

Velveteen Adjuster: Simply sets you up on the proper layer to be able to reduce the opacity of the layer set so the effect can be fine tuned.


CREATIVE EFFECTS

Glow Baby: Adds a beautiful, soft glow and enhances the color and contrast at the same time. Try this on children, graduates, or fashion images.

Anime Soft: A unique, painterly look that simplifies the image and makes it look half painted, half photographic. This softer version has a more muted color palette.

Anime Bold: A unique, painterly look that simplifies the image and makes it look half painted, half photographic. This bolder version has a more vivid color palette.

Deep Forest: You want rich and moody? You got it. Only for the adventurous. Creates deep, rich colors and glowing shadows. Try this on your romantic portraits and scene setters. After running the action, a brush will automatically be selected for you. Paint over the eyes or any area that you want to return sharpness to.

Power Soft: A nice overall softening with very little glow. If eyes become too soft after running, simply paint over them to clear any softening from that area.

Soft Wash: A bright, soft, high-key look. Try this with portraits on a white background for beautiful, modern looks.

Wash Out: Very high key, contrasty. Get the over-exposed look without losing highlight detail.


IMAGE CORRECTION

Dark Line Eraser: Use this to reduce the shadows under the eyes, for example. Requires the custom tool presets to be loaded. After running the action, start painting where you want to lighten. Painting over an area repeatedly will continue to lighten.

Doll Face: A beautiful skin softening action. Does not add glowing. After running the action, paint over the skin to soften it. Paint repeatedly over the same area to increase the softening.

Eye Color Enhancer: Bring the eyes to life! Simply run the action, then select a brush size that is just slightly smaller than the iris. Dab over it to bring out the color and make them shine.

Simple Soft: A subtle everyday skin softener. Reduces the minor imperfections in skin. Does not glow.

Skin Powder Genie: When you need cover girl smoothness, this is the ticket. It requires some manual painting, but it will set you all up. Simply run, then opt/alt-click on skin to sample the color. Then, start painting with large even strokes. Re-sample skin color as you move around to different tonal areas and continue to paint. The effect builds as you paint over the same area.

Simple Soft: A subtle everyday skin softener. Reduces the minor imperfections in skin. Does not glow.

Over X Helper Overall: This will help to restore highlight detail on a slightly over-exposed image. It also works well after using one of the other contrast enhancing actions when the highlights become too hot. Keep in mind that if highlight areas in the original image are severely over-exposed, nothing much can help that.

Over X Helper Paint In: The same as above, but allows you to selectively paint over the areas where you want to restore highlights. Used when most of the image is fine, but certain areas need help.

"I would highly recommend this action set to anyone who likes to create the rich, moody, dreamy, and painting type image, or someone looking for a great skin action set!"

Kevin Kubota's Actions V3 Review Number 1
"Not every action looks great with every photo............but there is an action for every photo (does that make sense?). You can always find an action that improves your image. And I love how every layer has a mask built in, and you are automatically set to use the black brush just as soon as you run the action. It's like your PS can read your mind!"
