Photoblast Actions...

I recently tried some of the Photoblast Actions from PolkaDotPotato and I am hooked!!!

I am not a digi girl, but I am a photo alter-er so when I saw these go up on the PDP site I knew I had to try them. I happened to be over at Ashley's house and she showed me just how simple they were to use. OMG! I can sooooo do this. You can sooooo do this. Yr 2 year old can sooooo do this and we will all look like brilliant photographers. Hooray for us! (and the Photoblast guy! and PolkaDotPotato!)

A PhotoBlast Action is like a series of commands. Have you ever tried to edit a picture, adjust the light or saturation or hue and something's just not right? Well a professional photographer has put together strings of photo editing commands and has turned them into a single click action and has made them available to the public to purchase. For the amount you will use them they are quite reasonable...dare I say - cheap? $6 per action! Now you'll need Photoshop or Photoshop Elements for them to run...but 1 click editing? Seriously...what a time saver!

So let me show you what I'm talking about. Amy just emailed us this photo of herself...

...absolutely lovely. But let me show you what a few Photoblasts can do!

There are, like, over 20 of these amazing actions over at PDP! I've added a permanent link to them over on the sidebar if you ever want to go looking for them. Here's what the link looks like - it has all the actions in a slideshow. You should really check them out!

That's quite a range of editing possibilities.
