Welcome to our Workflow editing series! These mission critical multi-layered Adobe Photoshop actions are used *every day* on our images to hone and prime client work to perfection. Now, we’re sharing them with you!
The Film Grain Workflow Action Set was designed to give great color definition to your images and apply a subtle yet warm granular look to your images to create a ‘Looks Like Film’ effect. We don’t achieve this through one-click actions (those don’t exist, really!) but walk you through each step to enhance the color profile of your image, ease in the desired film effect, and complete the image with a gorgeous finish. You can use this set on its own or easily have it work along side our many Photoshop and Photoshop CC actions, as well as with our Lightroom Presets.
This set includes:
This product is *only* for Adobe Photoshop CC — NOT CS6 and earlier — and is also not compatible with Adobe Lightroom, Lightroom CC, Lightroom Classic CC and Adobe Camera RAW (ACR) or Adobe Photoshop Elements.
The most important thing to remember when using actions is that they are designed to significantly speed up your workflow by giving you a consistent starting place. It’s very unlikely to have 1-click edits unless you can perfectly control light and white balance every shot. Therefore, adjust the action’s opacity in the layers palette to achieve your desired look.
As these actions are designed to mimic the look, feel, and workflow of the Lightroom Presets of the same name, these actions take full advantage of the Camera RAW Filter of Photoshop CC. There will be only one layer that’s created for each action, and that is by design. Except for the B+W actions, all layer opacities can be adjusted to personal preference.
Actions are only a small part of final image production. Time of day, gearing choices, lenses, angles, and depth of field will all have a much more profound effect on your images opposed to any action. Consider these if you’re unhappy with the results of your edit.
