      Great buy!!

      I love these actions! They are completely customisable so that you can retain quality if you wish to whilst still having the right impact. I had a little trouble customising at first (which was entirely my own noobness) but I sent an email and the team was quick to respond and help me along so incase you do have any trouble you can guarantee you will be tended to. These actions add the character to my work that I have always desired but usually struggled to create prior to purchasing this, in a few easy steps and clicks. You'll need to adapt things a bit if you're used to working on a larger canvas size that exceeds some of the default sizing, but if you play around with it a bit you'll still get the desired effect. I look forward to using this on my work going forward!!

      great result

      it has like 16 different actions to implement so it lookes very varied. easy to use. For better results, after you work on your image, save a 100% black copy of the layer you wnat to apply the effect to, you'll be able to pick the color later on, so you can try different options. it preserves the original layer intact so you can repeat process without having to double save anything. looks really great :)
