You are all aware of my PhotoShop Addiction, right? I mean I just can't seem to stop altering pictures of my girl - the proof is here and here.
Now even though this isn't going to make me look nearly as cool I'm going to fill you guys in on a little secret. I use Actions. Shocking I know...wait, do you have any idea what I'm talking about? No? Alright let's start at the beginning. Here is a SOOC (straight out of camera) shot of my girl. It's fine, but nothing I'd blog or blow up.
But then I took my PhotoShop program and my Pioneer Woman's Action Sets and ran a Slight Lighten - Fresh and Colorful - Boost and adjusted the opacity of both and came up with this, which in my opinion is much more striking. Definitely scrapbook material. And SO easy. It took me about 30 seconds. Could I have done all of this with separate maneuvers - yes. Would that be efficient and mommified. Heck no.
