First of all – this is a picture of me… thinking.
Because when I think, I think hard.
And it is such an experience that I usually want to take a picture of myself… just to remember this memorable moment.
So far, I have one.
Anyways, I used this special picture to try out The Pioneer Woman’s Actions – I mean the Photoshop Actions created by The Pioneer Woman.
Pioneer Woman is awesome, her site is awesome, her family is awesome and her actions are nothing less than awesome, indeed.
On the left side, there is the original picture that I took with my camera. Let’s call it the SOOC (Straight Out Of Camera).
And on the right, there is a picture which has undergone certain beautifying process – the result of applying particular Photoshop action.
I used two actions here – Boost and Bring Out The Eyes.
Here I’ve used the Slight Light action. The new picture looks much more positive and fresh then the original one.
I think I will use this action all the time – I need to lighten up my pictures almost always.
And I even dare to think that most of us do.
This is the action called Colorize.
It’s made my skin look more matte.
I like that.
The Heartland action – I love the color tones, especially the color of my lipstick.
A dreamy and lovely action called… Lovely!
Very aptly named. Not that I look lovely, the effect is lovely.
Here I used the Beauty Black and White action – originally, it resulted in a black and white picture, but I decreased the opacity and saved some color.
And I love that!
Oooooooh, and here comes my all-time favorite – Seventies, everybody!
I love, love, LOVE that – anything vintage makes my soul happy.
I really don’t know why, but I have always been a granny in my heart – since I can remember… since 3, I guess.
Three years old granny, that’s what I was… in my heart.
This is Slight Light and Seventies, both together.
Yeah, you can combine the actions – use one on top of the other.
You can mix three or four and see what you get.
Isn’t that great?
I think it is more than great – it’s ÜBER-GREAT!
And here I’ve combined the Slight Light and Soft Fade actions.
Using actions is so much fun.
The Pioneer Woman’s action are free to use – so if you have Photoshop (even Elements), just go grab these treasures.
And thank you, Pioneer Woman, you are the best!
