What does ‘Photographers Photoshop' do for photographers?
It saves them time, increases profits and gives them fast creative ways to distinguish themselves from the competition.
How does it work?
There are two parts to it. Our creative Photoshop ‘actions' create elegant imagery for you by clicking a button. Secondly our short film tutorials show you creative techniques that cannot be made with an ‘action.'
What is a basic ‘action'?
An ‘action' is a set of pre-recorded steps that can be played back in Photoshop by clicking a button. Typically Photographers have used ‘actions' to do repetitive tasks like batch processing images for the web or black and white conversion.
What is different about your ‘actions'?
Our creative ‘actions' produce beautiful tones, or other elegant imagery by combining many sophisticated techniques into one ‘action' that may contain 20 or more steps.
Are your ‘actions' customisable?
Yes. We give photographers ways to customise the photo effect either during the ‘action', or after it has finished in the layers palette.
We sometimes include a pop-up message to give the photographer ideas about how to customise it.
How do the film tutorials fit into your program?
Our videos help you in several ways. Sometimes the video works in collaboration with an ‘action.' The ‘action' runs through 10-15 steps, and the video shows you the next few manual steps required in order to finish the effect.
The videos also show you creative technique that cannot be completed using an ‘action'. Like our ‘Paint like Monet' set of tutorials. We show you how to create authentic hand-painted portraits, or landscapes/pets, using our custom art history brushes.

What are the differences between your ‘actions' & free ‘actions'?
I carefully develop each ‘action' to do something different creatively. Many hours are invested in testing the ‘actions' to make certain they work on different kinds of images, and offer our clients other ways to customise the effect quickly.
We work closely with professional photographers and designers for input and critical review.
And you receive the movie tutorials, custom photo borders and other presets as well, not only ‘actions.'
