MCP Blueprint – an iphone 3gs picture edited in Photoshop

I was on a pontoon boat the day I took this shot.  I did not bring my camera with me. When my daughter Jenna decided to jump from the boat and swim in the lake for her 1st time, I wanted to document it.  I was bummed that I did not lug my camera…  Then…


Blueprint – From Snapshot to Portrait in 6 Steps

Blueprint – 2 different approaches to similar photographs (extreme versus natural)

She sent it to me to see how I would handle it with actions, and to see if it even could be fixed.  At…


Recognize the Person in Today’s Before and After Blueprint?

Yep – I figured today I would subject myself to a little “Blueprint” action.  I still remember the days of getting carded and being told I look so young.  Well those days are “past tense” I think.  I am now 37 and starting to look and feel my age. Here is a photo of me before and after some…


Blueprint – Jumping for Joy {plus send in your own blueprint}

This week’s blueprint makes me excited for Spring, where you can get outdoors and enjoy life. As always I love feedback and opinions on the editing, as every edit will not appeal to all. MCP wants your blueprints too.  If you are an MCP Actions user and want to submit your blueprint, please email it…
