Highlight Recover – An excellent starting place for your image, saving blown-out highlights. Works great on wedding dresses and skies! Adjust the opacity of the Highlight Recover layer after running as desired.
Mid Recover – We recommend running this action FIRST! It instantly balances your image by and can save a dull, flat photo in one click. Paint out areas you don't want recovered after running with a soft fuzzy black brush.
Shadow Recover – We love running this action to recover muddy areas of a photo that are way too dark. Works great on groomsmen suits and dark interiors!
Fill Flash – For those times when you really should've popped a flash! We've got your back. Adjust opacity after running as desired.
Aloe Vera – Takes the red out! Imagine a sunburn on your skin...well this soothes it tones it down. Paint this onto red skin and adjust opacity for the desired effect.
Lemon Sucker – One of our favorites! This tones down the yellows in your photo – once you've used it once, you'll use it often! Really balances out skin tones with just 1 click! Feel free to paint back areas you want to retain yellow in, like grass.
Blueberry Sucker – We use this one mostly on men's black suits, to remove the blue cast.
Strawberry Sucker – Similar to Aloe Vera, but an overall red remover. Great to run and adjust the opacity on overly warm images.
Fertilizer – Awesome action for outdoor landscapes, or any photo that has lots of trees, grass and nature! Boosts the greens, just like a good fertilizer should!
Blue Skies – Just like it sounds, give the skies in your photo a boost of dreamy blues!
Color Popper – An overall saturation booster. Use it once, and you'll use it often! Adjust opacity after running as desired.
Spotlight Brighter – A crowd FAVORITE! Paint this on where you need some light – brighten dark faces, add a little pop to a dark corner. A great way to draw focus in a photo.
Spotlight Darker – The opposite of Spotlight Brighter! Paint in shadows where you'd like to create a little drama!
Warm Up – For cool photos, this will warm them up with an 82K tone. Adjust the orange layer as desired to add or decrease the warmth.
Cool Down – The opposite of Warm Up! We love using this one to create nice creamy cool photos.
Skin Saver – We promise this will be one of your new favorite actions! It's out go-to for skin retouching. Paint this onto any skin to smooth out tones and blemishes. Adjust opacity as desired.
Rich Curves – Get that S-curve effect with 1 simple click. Darkens darks, brightens brights.
Snaptastic – Similar to Rich Curves, but with a degree of sharpness to make your photo even more crispt and dynamic.
Paper Cut – We LOVE this one! An overall sharpener that will make every detail in your photo come to life.
Sharpen/Defog – We enjoy using this one towards the end of an edit. Brings back and flat mid-points and sharpens overall.
Smart Sharpener Brush – Bring selective sharpening to areas of your photo with this baby! Great on faces, eyes, hair, or anywhere you want to bring attention.
Uplift Color Brush – Another crowd favorite! Selectively paint wherever you'd like a POP of color! Excellent to use on the main subject of your photo.
Uplift Contrast Brush – Bring extra focus to the subject of your photo by brightening whites and boosting color and contrast all at once. You'll love this one!
Clarifier – A little boost of contrast and S-curve to liven up a dull photo. A great way to start OR finish an edit! Sometimes it's all you need! Adjust opacity as needed.
Buff & Polish – One of our absolute FAVORITES! This is like pure magic. Run this on any photo to remove all evidence of grain and add a nice gloss finish. Paint out any areas you'd like to recover the detail in afterwards, like eyes and fine details.
