This action set (containing eight variations) will provide you with a quick and easy solution for applying a high impact effect to your images. The action enhances detail and depth to create a dramatic final image. The action has been designed to build strong character portraits or dramatic landscapes in either color or black and white.
All layers are retained after the action is finished to allow the user to fine-tune the process if desired. For users of the full version of Photoshop the action records a snapshot in the History panel as the first step, and this allows the user to ‘undo’ the action with a single click if required. For Photoshop Elements users the action is applied through the Action player, which is part of the Guided Edit section of the main Edit space.
NOTE > The tutorial movie on YouTube is using the 2010 version of the acton. If you purchase this action your will also get the 2012 version at no added cost.
NEW and improved features for 2012 for Photoshop CS2-CC users. Temporary conversion to 16 Bits/Channel greatly reduces stepping or banding in highlights (=less need to mask these regions of smooth continuous tone after playing the action). Expanded action names highlights whether the tonal conversion darkens reds or blues during the image processing. Layers are grouped into sets to enable you to quickly mask or lower the opacity of the component effects for greater control over the finished result.
