Color Incorporated Standout Mount Give-Away!!! - Closed!

The giveaway is closed and I will be posting the winner on Thursday!!!

See my new Color Incorporated DigitalProLab Standout Mount below? I LOVE it! I agonized about what image I should have printed and finally settled on this one. I love this photo. It was taken last spring and it is an image of my boys playing in the hay field.  With all of the stress I have been going on in the last week with my computer woes, looking at this image on my wall instantly relaxes me.


I ordered the 30x20 Black Standout Mount.
You can see how nicely the edges are finished.


I had them add the Embassy Texture (a combo of their linen and pebble textures) and it really is beautiful.  You can see it in the image below.


The back is completely finished with 4 holes, ready for hanging.


Ordering was so easy using ColorInc Roes and shipping was free and very fast. I am 100% satisfied and now trying to figure out other images I want to have printed this way.  If only picking my favorite images was as easy as ordering from ColorInc...

If you haven't ordered from ColorInc yet you should try them out. They have a special promotion for 50% off your first order, 20% off your next ten orders (see ad and coupon code on top of my blog).  You can also request five free 5x7's to make sure your monitor is calibrated correctly before placing any orders.

ColorInc's customer service is topnotch, and shipping is incredibly fast (and free in most cases).  And their products are stunning.  I am really proud to have them as a sponser of my blog.  Make sure you join their Facebook Fan Page so you can catch all of the specials they are always posting there!

Now, for the giveaway!  ColorInc is offering a free 16x20 Standout Mount (white or black) to one of my readers.  To enter, simply comment below about your favorite CoffeeShop action, and ways it could be improved (if you think it needs updating).  Please be sure to leave your email address so I can contact you if you are the winner!  Please enter only once.  The giveaway will be closed Wednesday, June 30th, 11PM central time.  Hopefully by then I will have a working computer at home!

  3. i LOVE that picture. perfect for the wall. i love all of your wonderful actions even if i am totally actionally challenged and have only managed to download one of your actions in the past and i don't know how i did it. i know, "what a dork" huh?? ;D

    maybe someday i will figure it out....i love the golden light looking actions. those are my favorites.

  4. Right now I'm digging the storyboard actions...the only thing I don't like (though this could be a me thing and not an action thing)is that when I open the photos to put in the template, it opens it full size and usually the photo is huge so it takes a bit to rearrange and make it not contort weirdly. I wish it would open at 50% or 25% of the original size and let me go from there.

    Other than that, LOVE LOVE LOVE this website :) And would pph a canvas!!

  5. Beautiful! I believe I would have a hard time deciding what image I wanted on a standout mount ~ but I'm willing to take that chance. :)

    As far as my favorite CoffeeShop action...I'm not sure if this would quality, but I have just begun to dabble in Lightroom and I LOVE your ACR/Lightroom Scorched Honey preset! I believe the only thing you could improve on that is make it available as a PS or PSE action so others could enjoy as well.

    ReplyDelete
  6. I would love to try out ColorInc and win this giveaway! Thanks for offering it. My fav action, well, one of my favorites, is Simply Vintage, it is perfect, and I can tweak it just how I like it, so no update needed for me :) My email is gilbert dot jess at gmail dot com.

  7. Perfect Portrait is my favorite!! I use it on every portrait I do! The only thing that I can think of to make it better might be to add a third choice in color pop...maybe something a little softer or hazier??! It really is perfect the way it is! Thank you and good luck with your new computer!

    ReplyDelete
  8. I love SingleShot Color Pop! I use it all the time.

    ReplyDelete
  9. I use a little perk on just about every single image. Thank you so much for all that you do.

    ReplyDelete
  10. I love so many of your actions its hard to choose my favorite, but I would have to say I use the perfect portrait the most right now so we will go with that one.
    Thanks Melissa mkraemerphotography@gmail.com

  11. awww, gorgeous photo!! I totally understand why you picked this one!!!

    I love the Butterscotch Vintage. It is one of very few vintage-actions I like - and this one I love!! I used it last in a serie of pictures of an old russian car (for kids) and the effect was so great!!

    Thanks for all the great stuff you share!! :)

  12. I love love love the creamy toffee latte action set at about 65%. It gives photos such a beautiful dreamy feel!

    ReplyDelete
  13. Not sure how I can only comment on one action! They are all wonderful, but the one I use the most is probably "Little Perk". It just adds that final touch to a photo!

    ReplyDelete
  14. Creamy Chocolate B&W! I'm a fan of Sepia pics (I think because it reminds me of old family photos), but I love the crispness of a B&W. This is the best of both!

    ReplyDelete
  15. Well I love so many of your actions, especially all the great vintage ones... but if I have to pick one, I love Sun Kissed. It's great and so customizable. I don't know if I would do anything to change it. I would love to see more actions like it to add that "dreamy" factor photos.
    Thanks for creating such fab actions!!

  16. I love the Coffeshop Vivid No Wait action. I use it for almost every photo I edit. I love the versatility of it!

    ReplyDelete
  17. I use the perfect portrait action a lot. Even for images that don't necessarily need all of it (I just delete the hidden layers). I really like it. After running that I often add other actions like the antique or tea party ones. Thanks so much for such a great action. I really appreciate it!

    ReplyDelete
  18. I just found your blog about a week ago but am loving using all the new actions. I think so far my favorite is the sunkissed one. I love the beach and anything outdoors. This one will come in handy!! Sunkissedseashore@gmail.com

    ReplyDelete
  19. Perfect Portrait is probably the one that I use the most. I don't think it needs to be improved or updated.

    ReplyDelete
  20. My most favorite is Coffeeshop Powder Room 2!

  21. Rita,

    I am so glad you are up and running!
    One of my favorite CS Actions is "Little Perk".

    I sent you my info for the blog design.

    All the best,

  22. I love all of your actions/presets but I think the ones I use most are Eye Define & Baby Powderoom. They are perfect! Don't change a thing! :o)

  23. Rita, I have recently fallen in LOVE with Standout Mounts and they are a favorite among my customers. I'm going to check out ColorInc too, as it's always great to compare printers.

    I am a frequent user of your actions, and I think my favorite has to be the Dodge/Burn action. I use it ALL the time. Close second would be the Vivid [which I've used MANY times] and the Baby Powder Room. Those have been magic for my photos!

    No suggestions on making them better - they are fabulous in my mind! You truly have given so many of us a gift with your actions and tutorials.

    -Laura

  24. Oh how beautiful!

    My favorite action is Creamy Chocolate B&W! I love this action because my little ones are Black and the Creamy Chocolate smooths their skin and brings out the richness! I would like a bit of variation in the chocolate because their skin tones are different :) but if you don't make any changes I am still happy as a clam with it!

  25. oh I would so love to win this! My favourtie coffee shop action is creamy chocolate black and white.

    ReplyDelete
  26. I have two...Butterscotch and Attic Vintage, although I love them all and use them frequently. You are so wonderful to share your creativity with us! Thanks so much and I hope your computer woes are behind you!

    ReplyDelete
  27. What a great shot, such a magical feel to it. Great choice! I've got a canvas mount of one of my favorite shots (a single fuschia bloom on a jet black background) hanging on my wall - makes me smile every time I see it too.

    My favorite action? Probably Urban Grit, though Butterscotch is a close second. Love 'em. Thank you so much for all that you do, and I hope your computer woes are soon behind you (with data intact!).

  28. I love all your actions! I would say the Teeny Tiny world is a fav. Really all of them are for a variety of reasons!

    ReplyDelete
  29. I absolutely ADORE your PowderRoom2 action!! I use it for almost ALL my photographs. I do wish it had a "remove skin redness" step. I've had a few teens/adults that have skin redness due to acne. However, I've learned to adjust in other ways but adding something like that to this action would make it fabulous!!

  30. I just looked through their website and I am very impressed with the prices and services.

  34. I would have to say my favorite actions are Perfect Portrait and Web Frame It. I wouldn't be able to decide if I could only choose one! You are so generous to share your talent. Thank you :)

    ReplyDelete
  35. Picking a favorite action is hard when you have so many amazing ones. So I would have to go with Layer Mask. So simple, yet I couldn't live without it for Elements.

    ReplyDelete
  36. My favorite action is Baby Powder Room. Use it all the time and wouldn't change it!

  39. My favorite it the butterscotch vintage every time. Lovely!

    ReplyDelete
  40. My favorite of your freebies is actually the storyboards! They are so fun :D I really enjoy the chocolate B&W, too... I usually hide the B&W layer and adjust some things because I like the chocolate effect on color photos. If there an action for that? If not there should be!

    ReplyDelete
  41. Can I pick two? I use Dodge and Burn all the time! But, I've been on a bittersweet vintage kick lately!

    vikki@gearhart.org

  45. I LOVE LOVE LOVE the perfect portrait action it is a staple in my workflow! :)

    Thanks for the giveaway! :)

    ReplyDelete
  46. The one I am using most lately is Layer Mask for Elements. I don't even know how to make a layer mask otherwise. (I don't think you can in PSE unless it's hue/saturation or something like that.) Oh well! Love your work. I think I have to try that golden vintage!

    ReplyDelete
  47. I love all your actions, but lately I have been hooked on honey retro

    ReplyDelete
  49. You picked a great picture!! I love how the boys aren't looking at the camera, and the texture is outstanding. Color Inc really does wonderful work. Thanks for the chance to win one of their goodies!!

    As for my favorite action...without a doubt it is creamy chocolate B&W. THE BEST EVER!!! I can't think of any possible way to make it better - it's perfect.

  59. I use Perfect Portrait ALL the time! It's so awesome! I was going to say to just make the Urban Grit a separate action, but you just did that. Nice job and thanks for all you do!

    ReplyDelete
  62. Awesome! What a gorgeous image you chose for your standout!

    My hands-down all-time favorite Coffeeshop action is Perfect Portrait. I use it on 99% of all my photos.

    email: marinda at marindafowlerphotography dot com

    ReplyDelete
  63. Oh, that photo of your boys is so dreamy. I'd love to have something like that of my kids on the wall. Here's hoping I can do it for free! lol

    The two actions I use most are Perfect Portrait and Powder Room 2. I don't use Perfect Portrait as much anymore because on some photos it's just too much of an initial change and I can't remove or lessen all of the intensity. Changing some of the layers helps but not always. I use PR2 more now since I've started using Lightroom to make most of my initial adjustments and Powder room adds that perfect look to each sweet little face I'm working on. Thanks so much!

    ReplyDelete
  64. I think I would have to say...Sun Kissed!! I just LOVE that look and the action achieves it perfectly!! So no updating needed on that one!!

    ReplyDelete
  65. My favorite is the watermarking action. So fast and easy to use! Of course, I love just about everything you do. :)

    ReplyDelete
  66. I think it's Vivid 2 that I use all the time. Haha I think that's it. I use a lot of your actions all the time! So thankful you are willing to put them out for free!

    Seriously, though, I have to pick ONE of your actions as my favorite?!? Gosh, I love them all... I'm going to go with Butterscotch Vintage. It gives me that vintage feel that I love without looking too antique. It's airy and fresh.

  115. I have not bought PSE yet but I can't wait to try your actions. I hear tons of good things about them. I have hear a lot of people say that they are as good and sometimes better than actions they paid for.

  118. I LOVE the baby powder room. Love everything about it! And I use it on everyone, not just babies. I've been tempted to order some of ColorInc's standouts for a while so hopefully this is my lucky day!

    ReplyDelete
  119. Wow, choosing a favorite action of yours is tough!!! One of my favorites would have to be Perfect Portrait. I use it all the time. Thanks so much for your time and effort and for the great giveaway! :)

    ReplyDelete
  120. I love ALL your actions... but I guess I use Perfect Portrait the most. Your skin smoothing action is the best around!

    (A close second is the chocolate black and white conversion.)

    ReplyDelete
  121. Many of your actions are favorites, but I can't think of any that need updating. I would love to see the LR presets available as actions though for PS. Thanks for all you do! :)

  125. The quality on Color Inc's Standout Mount looks awesome! It's great to hear about a high quality product and company like this! For sure I'll look into them the next time I'm getting ready for a show. :)
    My very favorite action is the CoffeeShop Denim. I've never been able to do this before (bringing out a selected color) before, unless I took hours doing it all by hand (and I've done it that way.. ugh!). I'd love if there were the same easy action for other colors.. like a red one and a green one. I'm sure there's a way to do it but I'm not very good with photoshop and haven't been able to figure it out. (even using the selective color one).
    Love your website!

  126. I love the Bakery Shop actions! So much fun and customizable. Thanks!

  128. Hi! I'm not a pro, just someone who is learning and loving photography, but I'm totally obsessed with your PSE actions (and blog) and have downloaded (and tried out) most of them. my FAVORITE is SUN KISSED. I just love using that sun flare....It would be cool if it could be in black and white...maybe it can be done and I just don't know how to do it. I've tried running a b&w action after the sun kissed action but it doesn't look right... I think it would look awesome to have a sun flare in a black and white photo! thank you so much for offering all of these free goodies!!

  136. Not sure if they ship to Canada but if they do then my vote for a favourite action is perfect portrait! I would have suggested that you make Urban Grit a stand-alone action but since you just did that then it's all perfect!!

  137. I love your Powder Room 2 action and I don't know how I would ever manage to do my Sneak Peeks without your Web Color Block It action! twinflowerphotography @ gmail.com

  138. My favorite action is the creamy black and white! I use it ALL THE TIME!! What a fabulous give-away, I would love to win! :)

  139. I would say rounded corners is my favorite because I always forget how to achieve this look and having an action means I don't have to "google" it on those occasions when I want to round corners. Thanks for all the freebies and the great blog. Good luck with your computer purchase and file recovery.

  140. I'm so loving your Honey Retro action with vintage photo corners! I used it last night on this pic- http://www.flickr.com/photos/erin_hull/4745819741/

    No room for improvement that I can see!

  148. I love ALL of the CS actions, but my all-time-fave is Color Orton..... & I wouldn't change 1 thing about it!

    ReplyDelete
  149. THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE AWESOME GIVEAWAY! I LOVE EVERYTHING YOU DO! SO WONDERFUL TO FIND NEW GOODIES ALL THE TIME. MY FAVORITE IS PERFECT PORTRAIT AND ROUNDED CORNERS. THE ONLY IMPROVEMENT SUGGESTION (WHICH MAY NOT BE POSSIBLE) IS FOR THE ACTION NOT TO CREATE A SECOND PHOTO... KINDA CONFUSING FOR US NEWBIES ;)

  150. I love the Vintage News B&W. I always tweak it but in different ways for different photos. I don't think it needs updating. I love it the way it is.

    ReplyDelete
  151. I love so many of your actions, but the one I use the most has been eye bright. I use it on almost every portrait and it really makes a difference. Thank you for all the work you've put into your site and developing your actions. I have definitely taken advantage of them!

    ReplyDelete
  152. I love, love, love and never edit any picture without, powderroom and baby powderroom, the bright eye enhancemant and also the skin smoothing, I haven't found another action (I have bought some) that even comes close the results. I still find it hard to believe that all your amazing actions are free. Thanks so much!!

  168. Baby Powder Room - love it and use it often on pics of my grandbaby. I can't possibly imagine how it could bed improved upon!

    Oh my, how I've been coveting a standout mount photo, love yours.

  169. I love all the actions, but I think the one I use the most is the layer mask, followed closely by baby powderroom 2. Thanks so much for giving away all these great actions!! They're lifesavers for us PSE users!

  170. I love your Moody Pop and the picture perfect.

  171. I use both Rounded Corners & Perfect Portrait quite a bit. Your picture turned out beautifully!

    ReplyDelete
  172. I would have to say that on a day to day basis of editing photos that the perfect portrait is definitely the asset action to use! But when you're wanting a little 'something special', I love your newer Urban Grit action. I get a little giddy when editing with your actions! :-)

  173. I used dropped web shadow almost everyday - but my favorite is perfect portrait - - mandybeez at gmail

  177. The best action I've ever used is your Honey Retro action. Besides the great vintage look, I love the fact that it opens a new image which is very convenient. I love that I can adjust it to every picture I apply it to. And by going through step by step with the action, I've dialed in my own vintage treatments.

    Thanks for all the great info you give us!!

  178. Perfect Portrait is my favorite. I love all your actions and they have helped me so much!

    I'm always looking for a great b&w action, and I love the creamy chocolate b&w. I'd love a bright b&w with lots of contrast and sharpness for PSE.

  182. I'm addicted to the Golden Vintage Action. Looks great on many of my natural light photos. Wouldn't change a thing about it!

  185. My favorites are Perfect Portrait and Splendor B&W. Since I am just getting into portrait photography, I have found that Perfect Portrait helps me get the look that I am going for, and my wife LOVES her headshot.

  188. I just got married, and I would LOVE to get a standout of one my wedding pictures!

    My favorite action would have to be... well, is all of them a fair answer? If we were going by the ones I use the most it would have to be perfect portrait or s-curve pop. I'm seriously a huge fan of all of your actions though--you helped me learn Photoshop!
