Here is a preview of my newest action I called "Warm Cider" which is coming out tomorrow. I used a gorgeous image from Jill Wellington for this preview. This is a really pretty golden-matte effect for your Christmas/winter images and I hope you will like it!
I also organized the action set for PSE11-PSE13 and Photoshop in my Action Download pack. For those programs all my actions come in one set so you just have to load one thing, and I put all of the retouching actions on top, the clean edit/artistic actions in the middle, and the web/storyboard/frame actions on the bottom. This really makes it easy to find the exact action you need. If you have purchased the Action Download within the last two years you can email me and I will send out my newest version to you. The new "Warm Cider" action has already been added to the pack, I am just working on the post for my blog for tomorrow.
I have had some readers ask me if they should upgrade to PSE 13 (on sale still at Amazon). I personally would do it if you have PSE10 or below. PSE13 allows you to easily add actions like you do in Photoshop, and that really reduces your stress. If you have a newer version of PSE I don't think it is necessary to upgrade at this time.
I have some new Lightroom freebies coming up this next week. And another storyboard. If there is something specific you would love for me to post up on my site, please let me know!
I have a special on blog/website designs this month and have a few openings right now if you are interested in a new custom site.
Don't forget to check out the daily specials at the Ashe Design's 12 Days of Christmas sale! And Pretty Presets has some LR preset specials going on right now.
My boys are crazy-excited about Christmas. We are going to have family in town and have a nice dinner over at our house Christmas Eve. We aren't going to open any present until Christmas Day and on Christmas Eve we plan to enjoy food, family, carols, and celebrate the birthday baby. :-)
The boys still haven't made their three rat stockings, so the poor little guys might get nothing this year. At least Blackberry the dog has her own stocking. She probably would like it stuffed with three little ratties Christmas morning but she will have to be satisfied with a doggy biscuit. ;-)
Hope you are enjoying the weekend with your loved ones! I need to finish up the piles and piles of laundry sitting in my room and start lunch before the kids start telling me they are starving.
