Photoshop Actions

I am no expert when it comes to cameras and photos. In fact, until recently...(meaning when I married Christian and I inherited or rather stole his camera), I didn't even own a camera. However, there is just so much cuteness around me and I cannot help myself from snapping away furiously in their faces!

I have recently been playing with Photoshop and let me just tell you...it is amazing. Totally rocks. I have found myself playing around with photos for hours when I should be doing laundry...dishes...cleaning...oh my...the list could go on and on.

There is something called "Photoshop Actions" which are basically like editing tools for the dumb and hopeless. Ding. Ding. Ding. I qualify! Anyway, Pioneer Woman has some free actions on her website that are amazing! If you have Photoshop or lightroom, you must download these actions.

If you don't have photoshop or lightroom, I would highly recommend saving to invest in one of those programs! It will change your life. Okay...that was a little dramatic. But really...you will love it!

Here are some samples of the transformations that can take place. Oh and by the way...SOTC stands for "straight out of the camera".

Here is little Lexie Lou Lou. This was when she was just a puppy and oh so cute. Man, they just grow up so fast don't they?
Isn't that amazing? Totally changes and enhances the photos.
Here is my favorite nephew ever. Sometimes, when I feel down or blue, I'll just pull up this picture and imagine Jackson telling me, "Way to go Aunt Ashlee"! After that...I feel much better!



This last image is from our "Fancy Nancy Party" my mom had the other night. We all dressed up as fancy as possible and enjoyed parfaits and other fine foods! Well...not exactly fine foods...rather dinner requested by the girls...chicken nuggets and mac and cheese! Classy! The girls had a blast!




Well...there you have it! All my knowledge of photoshop in one tiny blog post! Which photo actions are your favorite?
