Free Photoshop Actions and Lightroom Presets by MCP™

Blueprint Fan Share: Sweetest Little Valentine

Thank you for this adorable Valentine themed before and after Blueprint from Carrie Heaps Photography.

Details on the edit and which MCP Photoshop actions were used (straight out of camera shown 1st, then the final image 2nd):

  1. Started by adjusting the gamma and contrast manually.
  2. Ran MCP Studio White Bright Spell from the Bag of Tricks action set. I love this action because it doesn’t distort the necessary shadow on the floor in front of the baby. I can even adjust how white, white I want the backdrop to be. It still amazes me how this doesn’t grab part of the costume and make it look edited. Even blown up, I can not see any separation lines. WOW! Luv it!
  3. Ran MCP Eye Doctor action.
  4. Ran MCP Magic Light from the Bag of Tricks action set – and used it on her shaded eye.
  5. Ran the FREE MCP High Definition Sharpening.
  6. Use the MCP Magic Blog It Board to show the before and after.

Done!  Simple Perfection! That was it – super quick and easy. The edit is very subtle, which was what I was going for.  Just clean, sharp images that speak for themselves.

    Oh Great, now I have to save up for the Bag of Tricks, because I really, really like the way it took care of that background! And those little leggings that she is wearing are totally the cutest ever!

    I’m having issues opening/running an action in Photoshop Elements 8. I have a Mac, and I can’t find an actions tab.
