Photography fads come and go, so how can you ensure that your images will transcend the trends? We’re proud to introduce MCP Inspire, a new set of actions that puts a timeless twist on the latest trends (think Vintage Chanel, not shoulder pads!)

Whatever your current post-processing passion is, MCP Inspire has an action that can help you embrace and enhance the latest trends while staying true to your own personal style. We spent months developing, designing, testing, and fine-tuning these actions to bring you a set of actions that will instantly transform your images — without losing any luster in years to come.

    thank you! You don’t know how much you rescued me from everything. I was on verge of giving up photography… till I purchased your Inspire actions and connected with your page. Now I’m motivated again. I enjoy getting your emails and I feel connected in your group. Thank you Jodi!

  2. Andrea

    I fell in love from the very first click! These actions are great for just about any editing style. They add dimension and finesse to every single photo. Even if you are in a hurry they are wonderful. One or two clicks and you go from a boring SOOC image to an image with depth and clarity. Thanks to the MCP team for all their hard work and creative talent!

    I love that even after using the Inspire action set for over a month that I’m still finding out new ways of using it. The Brilliant Base itself will add a pop to any image, and there are so many other actions that you can add on, adjust, and mix & match that you end up will literally endless possibilities to express your creativity. The color actions are wonderfully versatile, and if you’ve never ventured into black & white because you never really liked whatever options you’ve had, trust me, you’ll LIKE the B&W actions in Inspire. Awesome set, and I think it’ll give you so many more possibilities to play with your images when you’re stuck in a creative funk.

  5. Jessica Rotenberg

    I was in a real editing rut before I discovered MCP’s Inspire set. It made editing photos truly enjoyable again. Whether I need a quick edit or something extremely customizable, this set has it all. I really love the various matte options and black and white conversations. The mood rings might just be my favorite feature though. I can tone any image just right with one click – from soft pinks to warm browns to cooler tones. My prints are looking better than ever thanks to Inspire. This set is a must have.

    I have to say l love Inspire!! I already have Fusion and NN and I didn’t think I needed it. I was wrong!! This is going to be my new go to action set to use!

  16. Maria Arcement

    Nothing tops MCP Actions! Inspire is my all time favorite and part of my everyday workflow. If Brilliant Base was the only action in this set, it would still be worth every penny!

  17. Angela Miller

    This set is great! My favorite action by far is brilliant base, it gives every picture that extra touch needed to change a good photo to a great photo. I have bought a lot of action sets and this one has a ton of actions, more than any other set I have bought! It will not disappoint you. It has bold, matte, sun burst, clouds, sharpening, resizing, tones, etc., there is a lot! Bittersweet, Spunky and brilliant base are the best for me, but I use a lot of them as needed. You cannot go wrong with this set. Have fun editing! Angela Miller

    Im glad I purchased this. has made so much improvement and saves so much time

  19. DianaKinkor

    This is just a plain heartfelt THANK YOU to MCP & Jodi, and who ever else designed the products. You just saved quite a few photos from a volunteered shoot. I volunteered to do a photo session for this group that helps kids in foster care get adopted. They get the kids photos out there to more potential adopters. The little girl I did the session with, when asked where she wanted to do it at, replied the Barbie Dream House exhibit at the Mall of America…… can you say PINK!!!!! and she dressed in pink. There was a blue room…ie like Frozen… Her skin was blue, her dress was bluish pink….oh my oh my…. I had my flash but no gels and not sure if those would have helped. I don’t use Lightroom, just PSE and one of the sets I have is Inspire. That white balance slider set with the wording to help choose which color slider to use, and the paint on black notice to remove the action from areas….REALLY saved those photos quite fast. Because of those actions, I can now give them about 60 shots to choose from for their online gallery & the rest can go in a printed album someone is donating. Unfortunately I can not post a before and after as she is under 18 and those are the rules from the group. THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU! I am so happy I bought this set!!! YOU WILL NOT REGRET IT!!!!!!

    Photoshop Inspire actions make photo retouching a breeze! Brilliant color base is the perfect starting point. The ability to customize each action gives photographers creative control of every image.

  21. KatyHucks

    I love all the action sets I have purchased from MCP. The last one Inspire has ended up being my favorite! Glad I purchased it. They make my job much easier!!

  22. MelissaErdemir

    I love these actions. It will auto enhance, give you a color pop, decrease exposure and much more. It is so easy to do on my photos. I have a lot of your actions but this one is the one I go to all the time.

  23. AlanaDonovan

    So happy to sing your praises!!I have used MCP actions for the last 8 years. They quickly became andremain my go-to actions. I’ve purchased from other companies throughoutthe years, but always go back to my MCP actions because of their accuracyand ease. These were the first actions I was introduced to and I’m sograteful for how easy they make my workflow in Photoshop!

  24. MariaArcement

    I use MCP Inspire on all of my photos. I specifically use Brilliant Color Base bc it’s everything I need to make my images pop and look like clean edits. It’s AMAZEBALLS! Thank you for creating this action! I can’t do without it! Maria

  25. SeanMcCool

    I use the MCP Inspire Action set for almost every single image that I edit in Photoshop. As a Marketing Professional, it is imperative for me to have clean images. With MCP Inspire, I have been able to consistently use the Color of B&W Base Action regularly, then I am able to find what works well for that particular image in the Quick Looks. After using a light vignette and precision sharp, my images are so much better after using MCP Inspire.
