DESCRIPTION

The "Get It Done" pak includes 65 image-enhancing Photoshop actions. Okay, we know "Production Tools" doesn't sound nearly as fun as "Artistic Tools," but this is the workhorse in our family of Kubota action paks. This pak will help you color correct, retouch, sharpen, batch, resize, and make images presentation ready. Included in this Pak is our famous Sharpen KPD Magic Sharp action, one of our most popular and widely used effects that you can apply to almost any image. With our Production Tools, you will finish your images in minutes—not hours. These tools will help you speed through daily tasks. Spend more time creating images and less time getting them ready.

ACTIONS

BLACK & WHITE EFFECTS

Noise Reduction Headphones: Just like it sounds. Ha. Will help to reduce noise in your image.

Rotate 90 CCW: Pretty self explanatory, don't you think? Assign a function key to this one!

Lighten Via SCREEN 1 Third Stop: Similar to a 1/3 stop exposure increase. Works differently than a simple levels or curves adjustment as is raises all levels like an exposure would, but keeps the image from washing out like "Brightness/Contrast".

Lighten Via SCREEN 1 Half Stop: As previous - 1/2 stop

Lighten Via SCREEN 2 Thirds Stop: As previous - 2/3 stop

Lighten Via SCREEN 1 Stop: As previous - 1 stop

D1 Magenta Remove: Removes the inherent magenta cast from skin tones.

D1x Magenta Remove: Removes the inherent magenta cast from skin tones.

D60 Magenta Remove: Removes the inherent magenta cast from skin tones.

Canon 1D Ultimate Perfection:
Just makes it better.

WHAT ABOUT OTHER CAMERAS?If your camera is not listed, it's probably new enough that it doesn't need a default color adjustment. These actions were designed for older cameras that had inherent color cast problems.

Shadow Killer Brush 2: Paint out shadows.

KK Shadow Detail Opener
Brings out shadow detail and raises shadow values without adversely affecting highlight detail. Adjustment is targeted primarily at shadow tones.
