Win it Wednesday and Featured Vendor Review {Pure Photoshop Actions}


Can I just say that I am so excited to be reviewing this amazing Photoshop Actions Vendor!?
I have been drooling over their actions for so long, and now I finally get to use them.
I spent MOST of the day yesterday playing around with them, and I can say "they are practically perfect in every way!"
 {Pure Photoshop Actions}
Clean Simple Pure

Website


Pure Photoshop Actions has many different sets to choose from:
~Pure Haze
~Pure Photshop Set 1
~Pure Photoshop Set 2
~Pure Seasons
~Spring Fever
~Pure Black and White
~Tilt Simulation
~Round and Fill
~Hazy Days Baby
~Deep and Rich
~Cross Process that Baby
~Just a Pinch
I am just telling you right now that you should just buy the:
~Everything Set

I really don't like actions that dramatically change my images.  I think I am a pretty good photographer (not to sound proud) and I don't think my images need a ton of help when I am done in Adobe Bridge Camera Raw.  I feel like they just need a little enhancing or mood change which is what I LOVE about Pure Photoshop Actions!!  If you don't shoot in RAW and use Adobe Camera Raw, you will for sure want the "Just a Pinch" set.  It teaks the little things "just a pinch" that are wrong with your image, like color, haze, sharpening, etc.

Here are some of my favorites.  I did not tweak any of these actions except for deep and rich.  You can see how great and fast they are.  I love that they don't change my image enough for me to have to go and tweak them!  
 
There are a lot more than what I am posting here, my blog just isn't big enough to hold all the examples I made, so these are my favorite actions from each set...
 
Brown Sugar from Set 1:
 Cloud 9 from Set 2:
 Deep and Rich at 45% opacity:
 Faded from the Black and White set:
 Gentle Autumn from the Pure Seasons set:
(Autumn is the name of this beautiful girl too!)
 Golden Grain from the Black and White set:
 It doesn't matter if you're black or white from the Black and White set:
 Look at that color baby from Set 1:
 Mood from set 2:
 Tilt Simulation:
Makes your image look like you used a lens baby :)
 Time Warp from set 2:
Round and Fill Set:
Here I ran the fill action with my background color set to burgundy then ran the rounded corners action.
 Rounded Corners Action from the Round and Fill set:
Soft and Sparkly from set 1:
These actions help you smooth the skin and add a pop to your subjects eyes.

Here are examples of the single actions:
Here are some examples that some blog readers sent in:

This cute image of a dad and son is from Tara Erwin from Forever After Photography.  She writes:
I LOVE Pure Photoshop actions! I use them all the time and would be lost without them! :) Here's a before and after pic I just did today and LOVE. I did a few tiny adjustments to the RAW image and then went into Photoshop and used a pinch of warming, pure pop, brown haze, and It's all about the bling to finish up! Love the finishing touch that the bling gives! These are probably my four favorite actions/most used as well. 

This cute image of the cutest baby boy is from Amy Bishop Photography.  She writes:
My favorite Pure Photoshop Action would have to be Cookies & Cream :) Also, It's All About The Bling, Baby, & of course their facebook resize & sharpen action because it's a life saver!!

 I have TONS of comments on my facebook page about others favorites as well.  Here are just a few things photographers have said about Pure Photoshop Actions:

Bumbleberry Photography I faithfully use brighten the haze, brown haze and yellow haze, pink action at a very low opacity, the turn out the lights baby. The I always use soft and sparkly on the eyes, lips, hair.....skin if needed. Then the final step is It's all about the bling!

Sarah Hiltner I love mixing the brown haze and the pink action from Pure Haze! I think it's awesome!

 Joshua Vasquez The just a pinch set and the pure haze set are amazing! On the pure haze set ...use pure haze and a touch of haze together! And it doesn't hurt to add a pinch of color to make the photo stand out a lil bit more

Shanna-Kaye Fancher They are WONDERFUL!! I use the just a pinch the most....but I love actions from several sets...newborn goodness, movie star skin, and soft light are musts!


Tara Erwin I have MULTIPLE sets of their actions and LOVE them! My favorite is the "brown haze" and I use "All about the bling" A LOT and I LOVE the just a pinch set! perfect set for little touches...

Abbey Lunt Depends♥ I use turn the lights out on almost every photo...as well as blue bonnet I think... Puts a nice finish on pics.....oh! And green eyed monster us a life saver sometimes...so is get rid of that yellow! Pinch of film noir with the black and white turned off ♥ Oh yeah, brown haze is awesome too if one side of your pic is either a little under exposed or shadowy...it has right and left light which you can adjust to your taste♥
