We have been trying to find ways of keeping some “recipes” of our photo editing process for some time. I like to document any interesting tries and have a collection of effects that can be applied to (most) nature photos. Then it struck me: the easiest way to keep track of these effects would be to make some actions of the adjustments that we have come to love over the years. We really like the way they turned out so we’ve made them available for others that want to try and get the “fantasy look” in their photos.
The first two packs are available on Creative Market:
The Fantasy Landscapes Photoshop actions
Winter Dream Photoshop Actions Pack
All the actions have been tweaked and tested on hundreds of photos and have been made so that the effects are easily adjustable. Most of the edits are kept on separate layers so the layer opacity can be adjusted.
I hope there will be more actions available in the coming months because it’s a great way to make use of the editing skills that we’ve acquired in nearly a decade.
Here are some before/after images. As you can see the edits are subtle but can really enhance the look and feeling of a photo and give it that mysterious/dreamy/fantasy feel:
