Mod Pink

Some people have been asking me how I get my pictures to look the way they do! I use Photoshop “Actions” to do all sorts of things to my pictures: boost the color, make eyes sparkle, increase the sharpness, create texture, black and white, etc. Most of my actions come from The Pioneer Woman and are free for download, and some of them come from Totally RAD.
As you saw in this post, I used one action almost exclusively for all the pictures. They had a sort of 70’s feel to them, and it’s becoming one of my favorite to use… it’s Polaroid-esque and primitave, but comforting at the same time. I used that same action (in combination with a few others) to create this look on one of my beautiful neices. What do you think?

    I think your awesome! I never used actions before. You just opened up a big window for me. Which actions did you use to get the 70’s look? Free I hope :).

    I’ll probably still use Picasa for quick photo editing but I look forward to playing around with actions when I want to make a pic look pro! Thanks for the great post!
