Ok, you can get Renee Oakenfull's actions on her blog here. These are AWESOME. Super easy to install and she even offers a full video tutorial to help you use them, not that it's really needed though.
There are a bunch of different actions. Some I used individually, some I used layered on each other. Too, too cool!! I will say that you need a decent picture to start with, but the results are just tremendous.
I was at my Melissa's hair salon today and snapped a couple pics of her super sweet youngest, Cameron before I left. He loved to look at his pictures in the LCD panel!! The lighting was terrible, so I adjusted the best I could in PSE.
On the way home from the auction today, Bradley and I stopped at Shenk's Park in Hershey, Pennsylvania for a couple minutes to grab some photos. For the first time, I tried my camera out of auto mode. These, however were not part of them.
I know you are all probably sick of the photo clean up pictures, but I'm still tickled pink over the options and what I can accomplish with Photoshop Elements 5! Here is another one. This is the picture that I used of Johnny on the last layout posted.
If you click on the picture to enlarge it, you can see that I removed scab from his forehead, drool from his mouth and redness from just below his mouth. I also smoothed his skin a bit, of course cropped the picture and adjusted lighting just a tiny bit.
Of course, now I want the real thing - I want Photoshop CS3! But I'll probably settle for CS2 (the previous version) for now. I'm stalking some deals on eBay as I type!!
