Blueprint – Getting Rid of Poor Color with Photoshop Actions


Featured Products

I received this photo from a photographer (who had someone photograph her).  Unfortunately she was on vacation and had slight sunburn and the under exposure and photography emphasized this even more.

She sent it to me to see how I would handle it with actions, and to see if it even could be fixed.  At 1st glance I thought it might need custom post processing.  But I started playing, and wrote each step out so you could see how sometimes even harder problems can be tackled with actions (if you really learn what your actions do and how to use them).

Do you think this is a good save?  What else would you like to see done with this photo? There are a few more things I might do not using actions (but the task at hand was to get as far as I could just with MCP photoshop actions.  How would you have tackled this before to make it better?

    Hi, do you shoot RAW or jpg. ? And will image quality always decrease with each action that you add to the photo?

    Nice! Can’t wait to get some nicer weather here in the Northwest to get out and shoot some shot to play around with!
