Quick Edits to Add Artistic Flare to Your Images

Sometimes on the MCP Blog and on MCP Show and Tell we teach photographers how to fix an image or make drastic changes to a photo.  But one important use for Photoshop actions is to do quick edits and add artistic flare to an already strong image.

The “before” photo had light skin smoothing. All edits used just one action on top of the before using the MCP Inspire Actions for Photoshop and Elements.  Photo courtesy of Kruithof Photography.

    Absolutely magnificent! I love watching you work your magic. I work for Cavender’s and we do lots of model shoots and these actions are exactly what we need to give our shots that extra punch to put them over the top.

    I think you meant “artistic flair”. There’s no flare in these. 😉
