    Nice collection of actions :) I’d like to throw in another one by smokedval which is quite nice: http://smokedval.deviantart.com/art/for-all-action-86400610

    Strange though it be.. we’ve actually used that sketchup action on before and after photos for one of our plastic surgeon clients.

    “Using actions also allows you to learn new Photoshop features…”

    Vary true. I like to get actions and then in the actions dock, twirl down a action to see the recorded steps. It’s like getting to peak over the shoulder of the person who made it! A vary good way to learn.

      That’s exactly what I always do and how I learn from other DI artists.

      Sometimes I’ll edit steps of the action, so it will work well on some over exposed images.

    There were only a few actions that were any good. With few exceptions, most of the originals looked 10x better than with the action applied. Learn photo retouching from a professional, and don’t use someone else’s half ass shortcuts.

    I just have to say thank you. I grabbed a bunch of brushes and now all these today. A real nice addition to my tool case. If I use it once or twice i’m happy.

    I just noticed that a good number of the resources you have linked to here are the Downloadable files from DeviantART, I have a few questions for you:

    – Have you been given permission to display the sample images for each deviation? These images (unless otherwise noted) are copyrighted property of the original artist.

    – Have the artists/creators given permission for links direct to the Downloadable content? DeviantART is a community website designed to allow artists/creators to display their works and try and build a reputation – linking direct to the downloadable files does not provide the artist with the visibility which I, and possibly they, believe they deserve.

      if they werent shown here then technically they wouldnt get ANY traffic at all from here. The people have the choice to go thru DA, However, technically isn’t it the same amount of work for OEP to give the link to the page the downloads are located???

      How do you suggest it be done where they get MORE traffic by getting permission?

      AND alot of the Deviant Artists say RIGHT on their page, okay to share if you give me credit. So, technically since their name and where OEP got it from is right under the copywritten pictures that IS their credit, …

    Nice collection of actions :) Here is another set of free actions that has a lot to offer – http://www.jhpactions.com/jhpFree.html

    99% of these are crap and I would never put them on my images. Some are okay. Good thing about actions is that each layer, if not flattened, can be adjusted to suit your taste level. Howeer, the best online actions that I found for skin, eyes retouching AND adjustable filters too. The retouch actions save countless hours of time. But she is wayyyyyyy over priced (but i bought them anyways) is florabella actions. Comes down to, how much is your time worth?

    Here is the link: http://www.// florabellacollections.com. too too expensive, but pay themselves off with if you sell just 4 or so large prints. Other great PRESETS for jpeg and RAW LIGHTROOM 2,3, or4 is Pretty Presets, again, too damn expensive.

      I agree – way more expensive but quality wise the best on the market. BTW that’s nothing you can’t script on your own with advanced knowledge of photoshop.
