Using Multiple Photoshop Actions
Combining Photoshop actions is a great way to achieve unique effects and get extra bang for your buck. I design a lot of my Photoshop actions to work well together, and have found a few favorites that I almost always use.
To use two or more Photoshop actions, simply run the first action,
flatten the image and then run the second action. Easy peasy lemon squeezy!
Here are some of my favorite combos:
Crema + Saffron
I’m always happy to recommend combinations from a single set, and both of these Photoshop actions are included in Chunfen.
Ommadon + Crema
Another combo from Chunfen, this creates a gritty monochrome image with a heavy brown toning. The final image has an antiquated look that I just love!
Panis Rahl + Kelp
… But that’s not to say the color tone actions in Solstice don’t work well with color photos! Panis Rahl delivers the muted tones while Kelp adds an extra lick of personality. I think this combination gives a very film-like feel, too.
