Using Photoshop Actions & Filters to Edit Interior Design Photos

Most of the Blueprints and Before and After edits on the MCP Blog are portraits and weddings. While our audience is mostly children’s and wedding photographers, it is fun to step outside the box every once in a while too. Today’s photo was taken by the 17 year old, Seth Bingham. I absolutely LOVE the details in this photo and how he made it come to life. He magically transformed this interior design style photo using a combination of Topaz plugins and MCP Photoshop actions.


For this edit, Seth started by using the Topaz Labs Photoshop Plugin, Spicify.  This pulls out the most amazing details from the image.  It almost looks like HDR (high dynamic range). I just love this!

    Topaz Details is a great add-on, too. I definitely love what it does for any type of interior/architecture photo. I don’t use it a lot, but it certainly has it’s place in my toolbox. Seth did a beautiful job; I love his color edit!

    Oh my gosh this is so gorgeous. I would love to do more interior decorating shots and I am in awe of what a couple of actions can do!

    Thanks for this great post.
