A new set of Photoshop actions (called Travel & Landscape Workflow Action Pack) have been added to the shop at Thats My Monkey, a website for digital photographers. The Travel & Landscape Workflow Action Pack is available for $89.95. Thats My Monkey also offers a Wedding and Portrait Workflow Action Pack – also $89.95 – and a Master Sharpener Action Pack for $19.95. Here’s a link to their website.
The Action Pack includes tools for improving skies, mimicking the effects of traditional filters like polarizers and graduated neutral density filters, and offers several options for monochromatic and toned conversions.
There are also actions for resizing and rotating images, adjusting contrast and saturation, correcting color balance and more.
Most of the filters in the Travel & Landscape Workflow Action Pack are also customizable. By using the “undo” command after running the majority of these actions, two layers are created; the lower is your original image and the upper is the action affected version. This allows you to decrease the effect created by the action by lowering the opacity of the upper layer. In the case of the toned conversions, many interesting effects can also be achieved by changing the layer blend mode of the upper layer.
