Hello Pretties! We have exciting news...Pretty Actions now offers an amazing new set of Photoshop actions for all your newborn editing needs!
Lets go over some of the great Newborn Actions that are included in this set:
1. Fresh Starter Actions
Starting at the top, you have your Fresh Starter actions to fix highlights, shadows, add contrast, soften color, and more.
2. Newborn Blanket Brushes
Next (and my personal favorite of the entire collection), are the Blanket Brushes! Yes you read correctly, there are brushes to perfect your posing blankets. Not only that – we have created each blanket action to custom match ANY blanket - and it's all automated through the actions, making the daunting process of changing a blanket color, smoothing a blanket or even creating a creamy fade on your newborn posing blanket a breeze!
And to show you how absolutely ah-mazing these brushes are, here are a couple of super fun before and afters:
The newborn blanket brushes make such a difference! In addition to using the blanket brushes to edit these two images above, we also used the Skin Brushes and Overall Soothing Enhancers, also included in the this collection.
3. Newborn Skin Brushes
Now we all know newborns tend to have some skin issues the first few weeks after birth, such as yellow or jaundiced skin, acne, scratches from their little fingernails, cradle cap...the list goes on.
So when it came to creating the perfect Photoshop Action set for newborn photographers, we knew that we had to create some POWERHOUSE actions that correct these major newborn skin issues AND compliment baby's soft skin!
With this collection you can easily correct jaundiced, magenta, cyan and red skin tones, smooth baby's skin, add a healthy glow or compliment baby's skin with different complimentary hues. You can even add a bit of pink to baby's cheeks and define the lash line on those sleepy baby poses (hint, I do this on every newborn photo!) You will never again have to worry about the time consuming process of making a baby's skin look creamy... with these newborn actions. We've done the hard work for you!
4. Newborn Color Enhancement Actions
Ok, last but not least comes the icing on the cake... finishing off your newborn photos with gorgeous, creamy over-all enhancements to give your newborn images a beautiful, cohesive and finished look.
The Luxe Newborn Collection includes 11 different actions to subtly enhance your entire image, as well as an additional 8 pastel matte finishers and 4 different black & white actions.
There is definitely something for EVERYONE in this collection and one of the coolest things about our actions is that they are all COMPLETELY CUSTOMIZABLE so you can make adjustments to match your look and personal editing style! You can even mix and match different actions to create new looks and adjust the opacity to control the strength of each enhancement on your images.
With all of our collections we like to make sure YOU are the creator and still have ALL THE POWER of Photoshop at your fingertips. Our actions will make things a little - OK A LOT easier for you - and you will be able to complete your editing in half the time!
We love being able to help you save time and enhance your newborn images beautifully and we take great pride in what we have created. Check out our Luxe Newborn Photoshop Actions Collection, your little clients will be super happy you did!
