Sharing a Customer’s Edit Using Our Photoshop Actions

I received this email from a photographer.  She included her editing steps and have me permission to share them.

“Hey Jodi,  I love the more natural look for my photos.  I feel with the help of MCP’s Photoshop actions, I can finally obtain the look and feel I have been after for years: natural, clean, crisp and colorful pictures.
First  I opened the file in ACR and lightened the photo 1 stop up with MCP Mini Quick Clicks free presets.  Then I added a little warmth and a little brightness with the ACR sliders. Next I opened the photo in Photoshop and used Vanilla Cream from MCP Fusion actions. I lowered the opacity of Vanilla Cream to 40% and One Click Color to 50%. I opened the One Click Color folder and increased ‘Richen’ to 50%.
Then I used your Eye Doctor – Sharp as a Tack at 20% and painted the eye to sharpen them up just a little. I finished with a vignette: Surround, from Fusion, and lowered the fill to 25%.
When posting to Facebook or my blog, I ALWAYS run your Perfect Fit: Web Resize & Sharpening action because I feel like it really makes a HUGE difference of how the pictures look on the web.  Thanks for your hard work Jodi – it makes my job easier and photos better.

Here is her before and after image:

    I am using pretty much the same settings and Richen to 50% is a must. Also I like to increase Seek settings. My favorite is Urban Revival.

    Beautiful editing! Is there a place on the blog that shows photos and how they’re achieved? I never can remember twice how I edit something! I need to start writing it down as I go…
