    I am a photographer wannabee and I love this blog and your FB page as I really love to see and learn all the awesome things that can be done with photos after they are taken. I only have PSE right now, which I find very difficult to work with. I’ve been told Lightroom is the one to get, but just haven’t committed yet! Winning this would be a blessing in disguise to help jumpstart my foray into photography :-)!!!

    I like the tutorials about how to do very specific things in photoshop and also tips on photography in general! Like the one that showed the difference in lens and how it affects face shape.

    Tambra Hemmerlein says

    Im just an amateur photographer by giving my time up to take pictures of people who can’t afford going to photography studios and your site has helped me learn and expand my use of photoshop which allows me to do something different in creating special memories for those individuals photos. Your site and service has been a joy and blessing. Thanks for sharing.

    The “MCP Action Blog” is a clearly structured knowledge base place around Photoshop Actions with a fair amount of tutorials, FAQs hints and tips. One of your strengths are the very good made video tutorials, which are always a pleasure to see. – Keep on the good work!

    The thing I love most about this blog is that its not boring. There is always something a little different. Personal experiences, guest bloggers, contests…plus tips and tutorials. It’s

    Amber Burke says

    I really
    Like the every day tips, your down to earth comments and how you are realistic with your own life being in front of the camera… Including your own issues with weight, age, children, things everyone can truly relate to as a photographer.

    I love the freebies. And seeing how to put the actions to use. I had a trial of Lightroom 3 and loved it, but the price is a bit steep for my budget, so I’d love Lightroom 4!

    eileen says

    I LOVE MCP actions! What do I like the most? Too many choices! I suppose the best thing is how much I have learned from reading the articles and just “listening” to what has been “said.”

  153. 519

    kristin anderson says

    I would love this as I keep hearing I need to make the conversion over for raw processing. I love mcp because I am in love with the fusion set & always find you to be one of the most open & encouragingly helpful photogs/ companies.

    I love your blog! It reminds me to think of photography daily. Plus I always learn about new and different ways of expanding my own skills. Plus, I love that you have so many pics of your kids. My kids are my main reason to pull out my camera each day!
    I am a “subscriber” of your FB page. thanks!

  156. 525


    I just downloaded the Quickie Collection for Camera Raw. I have tried Lightroom and would love to own it. I love the streamline processing. We are adopting this summer and it will make 3 kids.

    Veda Taylor says

    I think the thing I like most about MCP Actions is the simplicity. Some of the tips offered up help even people like me who have no photo editing software, other than Picasa and such. MCP inspires me to take my photography to a new level; making art of the what might otherwise be a forgettable shot. I guess I just like that you help make our images memorable.

    Konya says

    Wow! I just got my Nikon D7000 and PSE 10 in November. As a novice to SLRs I needed a great resource to help me out. I found MCPactions blog and have been reading and learning so much!

    Ysa says

    In your blog, it’s not just that you share tips, tutorials and advice, but it’s HOW you go about that that keeps me coming back to read. Your tips are commonsense and original (they offer the equivalent of the Oprah “Aha!” moment. Then there are guest blogs! There are some awesome guest blogs on and it and it’s a testament to how much care about your fellow photographers and what a generous ego you have that you allow room for others to impart wisdom from your turf.

  185. 643
