Sometimes your daytime photos fail to capture the depth and warmth that you remember seeing in person. This amazing photo by Amanda of Sparrow Memories Photography is full of personality. What an adorable shot. Amanda sent me her before and after and felt that while she loved the original, it needed an extra something. Admittedly, her favorite MCP Photoshop Actions set is Fusion. She uses at least some actions from Fusion on nearly every edit.
Here are her steps for this image – the Blueprint shows how she got from the before to the after using actions in the Fusion set (which works inside Photoshop and Elements).
If you prefer your photo not quite this warm, you could definitely dial back the Magic Markers and not do the last One Click Color, but Amanda loves rich color pop and this is how she achieved it.
Thank you, Sparrow Memories, for sharing your edit with us! MCP Fans – when you edit your photos, come share your favorites on MCP Actions Facebook Page. Yours could be selected for a future Blueprint.
