Dear Crissy

Free photoshop actions

I am happy to announce that I will be offering a series of free Photoshop actions, starting with Poetic, a set of creative black and white actions. The free Photoshop actions have been tested in Photoshop CS2 and higher. You are welcome to try them in earlier versions of PS, or PSE, but I’m not sure if they will work! After you download the actions, join this new group on Flickr I created for my actions: Dear Crissy Actions.

The actions are free for you to use personally, or commercially, but should not be re-sold in any way. I would very much appreciate a link back to if you use them, and a tweet of this post (via the tweet meme thing above) would be great!

Free Photoshop Actions

Here are a few examples of the action in use:

I hope you enjoy these free Photoshop actions, and stay tuned for more posts relating to photography, and more freebies too!

Also, if you use my actions and post your photos online, I’d love to see your examples!

      I honestly don't know about PSE, Suzanne. Never used it. You're welcome to try it though!

    Found you through MBC and now following your blog!

    I am becoming a mother soon, and would love any advice other moms have who have already experienced what I am currently experiencing. I would love to hear from you! :)

    Have a great Friday!

    I love these. I use pastoral and epitaph the most. Sometimes I'll even take the "black and white" off of the pastoral and just use the color enhancements. Great stuff! If you ever make a color set of actions…you can count on me buying them.
