About Kubota Artistic Tools Pow Wow

Sandra Burchett, Sandra Dee's Photography
"These are so easy to use, and you can adjust them easily to get the exact look that you want. Definitely an action set worth looking at a few times."

Lynne Daley, Photo-per-Diem, Coastal Scenes-Savannah-Using Kevin Kubota Artistic Tools-Pow Wow
"My favorite tool was the Black and White Lensbaby Oh Baby, a perfect tool for editing the digital infrared images. The watermark tool in the Pow Wow collection made it easy to add the copyright information. I highly recommend these tools for enhancing not only the black and white digital infrared images shown here, but also the tools are great for color images."

About Kubota Artistic Tools Viva La Vintage

Katelyn Thomas, Katelyn Thomas Photography
"Having the option to paint on the photo using Kubota Tools is really nice, as you don't need to mask, invert the mask and then paint the effect back in. I created a duplicate layer as soon as I pulled the image into Photoshop and then just painted directly onto the duplicate layer to create the perfect look."

About Kubota Artistic Tools Lensbaby

Nuno Caldeira
"This tool is a really time saver when it comes to post production, no more manual tweaking parameter by parameter, trying to make it look perfect, take the actions as a starting point (in most cases you wont need more edits or tweaking by my experience) and your Lensbaby photos will be boosted instantly."

Tyson Robichaud, Tyson Robichaud Photography
"While for certain images, shot with certain Lensbaby optics may look gratuitous next to each other, the actions have different effects depending on which optical and lens combos you use. (Don't tell anyone, but the actions work and look great on images not taken with Lensbaby optics also!)"

Betsy Finn, Professional Photographer Magazine
"Overall, I thought that the Lensbaby Pak did help improve the straight out of camera images created with the various Lensbaby lenses. If you are going to invest in a set of Lensbaby lenses for client work, why not add a set of actions to your arsenal in order to efficiently process those images? It sounds like a no-brainer to me."

Rayan Anastor, Rayan Anastor Photography
"Over the years, I have experimented with many different types of Photoshop Actions, from many different vendors. And recently, I am finally settling into my sets of go-to actions that I LOVE! And these Photoshop Actions include Kevin Kubota's Image Tools." 

Angeli Hagen, Lissarrague Images
Sunshine & bright smiles | Minneapolis Family Photography "Because of my editing style, I use actions from the Kevin Kubota Artistic Tools V1 often. It speeds up my workflow and is subtle and consistent with my style...I can't recommend Kubota Actions enough. If you're in the market for some new tools to help you out in Photoshop, these should be a strong consideration!" 

About Kubota Artistic Tools V3

Ryan Anastor, Ryan Anastor Photography 
"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!" 

Sandra Burchett, Sandra Dee's Photography
"Again, these were amazingly easy to use, and cut work time way down. Plus, I love the cool effects!"

"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!" 

About Kubota AutoAlbum Templates

Beverly Kimbal, Watermark Photography
"I find Kubota Image Tools to be very easy to use. For a busy photographer and the primary support for my family, I don't have any time to waste trying to figure things out. Kubota has helped streamline my album creating time and given me an updated product that my clientel want. Thank you Kubota for making my life easier!"

Beth Zak, BZak Photography
"I have been using the album designs and love them. I can use the designs just as they are or modify them to my taste! I feel like I have so much more to offer without re-creating the wheel."

Elizabeth Walker, Elizabeth Walker Photography
"Using Auto Album to create coffee table book layouts for clients has dramatically reduced the turn around time. It's easy to use and my clients love the look of the layouts."

Merav Schwartz, Merav Schwartz Studios
"Thank you very much for providing that level of customer service. I also wanted to let the whole team know how pleased I am with the AutoAlbum piece of the Studio Set - it took me one hour, start to finish - from selecting the images, deciding on groupings, choosing the layout - the first time I used the Action set to make an album. I know this investment will pay off both in time saved and in revenue generated."

Mark Levesque, Professional Photographer
"Kubota Image Tools has another winner here with AutoAlbum V3. With over 500 provided templates, it is easy to find a layout for your album pages. Residing entirely within Photoshop, there are no new programs to learn, and by leveraging your existing knowledge of Photoshop you can customize and refine your album pages easily."

T. Michael Testi, Blogcritics
"If you are a professional photographer, especially one who does weddings, portraits, or graduations, you really owe it to yourself to check into the Kubota AutoAlbum, or any of the Kubota products for the photographer. They will allow you to get the maximum productivity with the least amount of effort. I think that the Kubota AutoAlbum will pay for itself in time savings and customer satisfaction over and over again. I highly recommend this product."
