Pure Actions

Woo hoo!!!! We have finally decided to launch our workflow as a set of Pure Actions!! We are super excited about sharing these with you and we hope that you find these in your normal workflow.

The Pure Action Pack 1 includes 20 actions. From sharpening for print, some fun hazy actions to color pops, to 2 black and white actions. It also includes some basic color fixes for images that are too warm, and too cool. It has actions to raise shadows and burn and dodge tools.

Here are some before and after images!! The possibilities are endless!! You can layer them on top of each other and have tons of fun with them!

The actions in the set are as follows

1) Soft and Sparkly baby -- an eye pop and skin smoothing action!!
2) come out of the shadows baby -- an action to lift the harsh shadows of a picture
3) Cool down that baby -- if your image is too warm use this!!
4) Lookin sharp baby -- print sharpening and a subtle but awesome action! It won't make your images look artifacty (is that a word hahaha)
5) Sunshine baby -- a dodge action
6) Turn out the lights baby -- a burning action
7) It doesn't matter if you're black or white -- a bw action that creates 3 different options to use as your final bw... with controls to get pieces from each snapshot if you want a little bit of each option.
8) bw baby -- a nice and basic bw
9) Brighten up that baby -- is your image a bit dark?? This will solve that problem!
10) Its all about the bling baby -- just adds a bit of "pop" to all of the edges of your picture
11) Hazy baby -- title says it all... adds a little hazy... :)
12) Hazy baby 2
13) Just pop it baby -- a nice gentle color pop action. Feel free to run it more then once, and paint back their skin if it is to harsh on their skin. It is a very gentle color pop and doesn't clog your blacks or make your colors go out of gamut!
14) Blue Bonnet baby -- a haze action
15) Fix all that red baby -- alot of newborns are red red red... this helps fix that!
16) Look at all that color baby -- another color pop. Use it in conjunction with just pop it baby for more color... :)
17) Brown sugar baby -- a nice vintage wash action.. that isn't to extreme!
18) Warm up that baby -- if your picture looks a little blue.. this will solve that. Run it as many times as needed!
19) Red Rover -- a haze action
20) Mellow Yellow -- a haze action
