So I'm loving the new Mini Fusion action that MCP is giving away for free here. Its simple but affective. So I've been trying it out on some pictures I already had to see the difference.
This is one of my favorite shots of my friend Kristin from our Beach Photo Shoot which was pretty much my first attempt ever at portrait photography.
First I ran Coffee Shop's Baby Powder Room action. I love this action because when you first run it, nothing happens to your photo. It just creates a bunch of layers and masks for you to easily work with to clean up your photo. One of the layers is eye define. All you do is click on the black layer mask on the eye define layer, set your brush to white, and paint over the eyes, and they magically pop! Its the easiest way I've found so far to instantly bring out the eyes.
Then I ran the Mini Fusion Action, and thats it! I didn't even need to edit the layers of the action, I liked how it came out right away.
To me it looks clearer and warmer and I love what it did to her hair. And I love the difference in her eyes. I think its a nice improvement without making the picture look overly photoshopped.
