Photoshop Actions From Kubota Image Tools
Kevin Kubota Action Sets – Volume 2 – All Things Photography are proud to be partnered with Kubota Workshops and their full range of amazing products including all of the Photoshop Action Sets and Tools. If you have never seen or heard of these before, you are in for a treat!
Kevin Kubota was recently hailed as one of the top ten wedding photographers in the world by American Photo Magazine. He has put his years of Photoshop experience into these actions for all to enjoy and use and when you see his website you will see that he uses these actions himself.
So what exactly are Photoshop Action Sets?
Action Sets are pre-written processes that you simply download and install into Photoshop that enhance and personalise your images in many different ways, saving you hours of processing time.
With just one click of a button you can transform your images and really bring them to life in any number of ways. Actions are there to speed up your workflow and give your images your own personalised look…something that your clients will really appreciate.
If you browse many of the top wedding photographer’s websites, you will notice that many of them use these Kevin Kubota action sets…and their images really “pop”!
What you tend to find is that these Photoshop actions give your photos a style that sets you apart from the mainstream processing whilst adding a certain “Je ne sais quois” to your images…images that leap out to your clients when “shopping” for a photographer to shoot their wedding for example.
Here are some of the features from my favourite of the Kevin Kubota Action Sets range, Artistic Tools Volume 2, winner of the “Hot One” award.
Over 50 different Photoshop Actions, including:
- Sloppy Border Proofing
- Lord of the Rings
- Hawaiian Punch
- Sing the Blues (tones)
- Digital Fill Flash
- Smarter Sharp
- Makeup Artist
- Smokeless Burn
- and more…
- Mac OS X or Win 98, 2000, NT, ME, XP, and Vista
- Adobe Photoshop 7.0 or better
- Some Actions require Photoshop CS2 or newer
Once you get to know these actions well, they become like “old friends” and the amount of different combinations you can use to get different effects is endless! You always find something new to spice up your images. I find that by making 3 or 4 subtle changes and alterations rather than one huge change, I get much nicer images.
