Adding Faux Snow and Seasonal Flare Into Your Photos

Before and After Step-by-Step Edit: Adding Faux Snow and Seasonal Flare Into Your Photos

The MCP Show and Tell Site is a place for you to share your images edited with MCP products (our Photoshop actionsLightroom presetstextures and more).  We’ve always shared before and after Blueprints on our main blog, but now, we will sometimes share some favorites from Show and Tell to give these photographers even more exposure.  If you haven’t checked out Show and Tell yet, what are you waiting for?  You’ll learn how other photographers are using our products and see what they can do for your work.  And once you are ready, you can show off your own editing skills using MCP goodies.  You might even make new friends or gain a customer…. since you get to add your website address right on the page. Bonus!
