Before and After Step-by-Step Edit: Turn Day Into Night with Inspire Photoshop Actions

This image was first shared on our sister site MCP Show and Tell Site. Show and Tell is a place for you to share your images edited with MCP products (our Photoshop actions, Lightroom presets, textures and more) and see other people’s edits too.  Make sure to check back often for more great edits by our customers and to share your own.

We occasionally feature an image from Show and Tell on our main blog, so you may even get a chance to be in the “spotlight.”

Today’s Featured Image:

Turn day into night.





MCP sets used: MCP Inspire Photoshop Actions


Lightroom – Slight white balance adjustment before moving over to Photoshop.

Photoshop – Make a copied layer of the original image before running Inspire Light Block Action. Adjust color temperature to high level of yellow with a gradient filter. Add more yellow, orange, and a bit of red in HSL panel along with some clarity. Add a layer mask to this third layer and use a white soft brush with 50% opacity with pressure sensitivity on.

Inspire Photoshop Actions – Use paint on Light Blocking Action to create a nighttime appearance and used Light Painting Action to create natural lines for light to fall inside arches.

    I don’t see the Illuminate action in INSPIRE. Am I overlooking this?

      Great catch Lisa. Illuminate (from Four Seasons) is very close to Lightpainting in Inspire. I think that is what Cindy meant. But either way, results would be the same. If you have Inspire use Lightpainting. 🙂

    This is AWESOME!!! Thanks so much for the run down. It helps to see how things are done and what was used. Seeing this gives me courage to try.
