The product includes 1000 special effect overlays and more than 40 photoshop actions! They’re all simple to use and allow you to further customize and build the design!

Overlays included:

  • 500 unique special effect overlays with canvas size at 1920 x 1080px.
  • 500 unique overlays with canvas size at 3840 x 2160px.

Actions included:

  • Add Overlay Action

  • Vertical Overlay Glow Action
  • Reveal Details Action
  • Overall Contrast Action

  • 35 Color Looks Actions

Each action creates well-named, organized, grouped and color-coded layers.

We have prepared “Readme” files with instructions, along with a detailed video tutorial demonstrating how to set up your photos, how to load and use the actions, and how to customize the results that you got after playing the action.

The actions work in Photoshop (English versions) CS3, CS4, CS5, CS6, CC, CC 2015.5, CC 2017+. If you are using another language in Photoshop, you need to change it to English to play the action and then you can change it back to your native language.

How It Works

Just do the following:

    1.  Go to File -> Open, choose your photo and click “Open” to open a photo to work with.
    2. Open the “Special Effect Actions” actions folder, choose the “Add Overlay” action and click on “Play button.”

The action will then ask you to choose the overlay that you want to use. After you select it, choose “Place” and position the overlay where you’d like it. Then just hit “Enter” and the action will continue to work. The action will place and blend the overlay to your photo and will also create adjustment layers that you can use to adjust the brightness and color of the overlay. If you want to add more overlays, just play this action again as many times with as many overlays you want to add.

It’s really that simple!

You can then use other actions from the folder to further customize and build the design. Please watch the video tutorial for a demonstration of these steps and customizing techniques.

    I purchased the special effect overlays and WOW are they super fun and easy to use. I have just started to add them to some of my Senior images but they have been a big hit already. They give a very unique quality to my images that just isn’t found in our area market right now so it helps my images stand out from the crowd. That is awesome of course but to be able to do that with such a simple overlay is a dream. THANKS!
