Playing with Photoshop

I learned a new trick today! Instead of having to master photoshop myself...which I've tried and can't seem to figure out, I found a way to get what I want without getting frustrated. No it's not cheating, it's borrowing what's available to me. MCP free ACTIONS!

I just downloaded the Pioneer Woman's actions from her website, since they're free, and applied them to a picture I had sitting on my flashdrive. I was on campus and didn't have any other pictures with me. And since I don't have Photoshop on my personal computer, I had to use what I had available.

Check out all the coolness below!
The Original

Black and White
Fresh and Colorful
Soft and Faded
Freaky Vintage

Old West
My Favorite!
It took me about a half hour to make all these changes, and I love the different tone of each picture. Definitely fun to play with once in a while, and it sure beats trying to figure it all out by myself.

P.S. Have you noticed the increase in posting lately? Yeah, we've hit spring break mode and have some extra time on our hands. I'll be taking off to NYC bright and early Saturday morning. Hopefully I'll have lots of pictures to share with you when I return! Happy Spring Break!


  1. Love all the posts...and the post-processed photos too! You'll have to show me how to do all that, my tech-savvy future daughter-in-law! Have fun and stay safe in NYC! I'll take care of your guy for you...

  2. Hm...we know how to rotate pics and that's about it. Enjoy New York!
