Here is my 1st blog freebie – but a very meaningful one to me.

My Father In Law has Lymphoma and I wanted to do something to either raise money or awareness about cancer. I decided to do the latter. And wanted to tie it in with my talents, photoshop. So I have an incredible, fun free action set for everyone with cancer awareness as a theme.

It will convert your photo to black and white and then give you 14 different overlays (plus optional defog layer and contrast layer) to choose from. It is simple and fully adjustable. You can combine layer colors for more looks, and adjust the opacity.

To download it, click on the photo below to go this action on my site. Then the download link is there. Thank you and enjoy.

Also, read at the bottom of the page on my site about submiting a photo to me using this action. If your photo has a story behind it, related to cancer/being affected by cancer, you may get published on my blog.

    I would love to try this but I can’t get it to run in PSE5. I have a friend who lost her 4 year old little boy to Lymphoma in July of 2005. I just did a photo shoot with them on Sunday and I have a picture of them that I’d love to run this action on. Here is his website.

    Sending my thoughts and prayers to your father-in-law and your family.

    This action will only work in 7, CS, CS2 and CS3. It uses things not available to elements which is why it cannot run. Sorry.

    BUT if you want me to run a photo through and email it to you – just send me at email and I am happy to help you. Just remind me what you are sending it about and which overlay you want. My email is

    Hope that helps,

    I just wanted to say thank you for the action and to offer my thoughts and prayers for your father in law. My dad is undergoing Chemo for Lymphoma for a second time in 3 years and awaiting a bone marrow transplant in the middle of October. Cancer is horrible! There is nothing easy about it for the patient or their loved ones watching them go through it. ~D

    Thank you for sharing this action with all of us. I pray that we can make cancer go away someday so that we never have to worry or say goodbye to the one’s we love. All my best to your FIL and his family.
