Playing Around with ABM Actions (yay!)

If you've been hiding under a rock and haven't yet ventured over to A Beautiful Mess lately, do make sure to check out their collection of Photoshop actions. I purchased The Complete Collection earlier today and have been playing around with the actions, having the best time! You know how long it takes to develop actions on Photoshop that you like when processing photos. They really take the guess-work out of it with this collection.

One day last fall, I came home from a long day of work, grabbed my DSLR, and headed out to our backyard with Enu. I'd forgotten about these photos, images taken before the long gloom of winter set in here in Kansas. (Seriously, I'm writing this on the very tippy-toe brink of spring, and I can't wait for it to be here already! So cold.)

Sunday and Yoko from The Folk Collection

Alice and Luna from The Fresh Collection

Bowie and Autumn from The Signature Collection

You can mix-and-match actions to tailor your photos to your needs. SO. COOL.

Opal from The Signature Collection, plus Light Leak 2 and Goldie from The Folk Collection

Gigi from The Signature Collection and Celeste from The Fresh Collection

India and Opal from The Signature Collection

Malt and Imogen from The Folk Collection

Willow (with dark separation turned off) and Sun Flare 2 from The Fresh Collection 

I might still be doodling around with the actions when Philip gets home from his drawing class this evening.
