Sleeklens Photoshop Actions Review
Happy new year! 2017 is in full swing now! I hope you're all having a wonderful start to our new year.
First, you guys should know that I have a pretty solid workflow down. I do a pretty clean/basic edit in Lightroom and then pull my image into Photoshop for any skin work and some hand editing. I finish off with curves/levels work to get the look I desire. I generally have a pretty bold, deep, rich style. I like lots of contrast, deep dark blacks; images that pop.
And for the record, here was my original edit- the final image that was presented to the client:
I added a few of their ENHANCE TONES actions and adjusted the opacity to my liking. I would like these much more if they were named something descriptive so I had an idea of what they were going to do before I played them. Instead, they have cute little names like "Girl Like You" and "Whisperer" and "Romantic Dance." Anyway, I found a few of these helpful.
What I like best about this set is the Portrait Retouch section. They have actions to enhance eyes, teeth, and lips, and some wonderful skin actions, too. There's a Frequency Separation and a Dodge and Burn action that is wonderful.
The moveable light glows could be awesome on the right image, but some of them are a bit strong... if you have some basic PS knowledge you can adjust them as needed.
Here's the image I ended up with. It's nice; sharp, nice skin tones, and no weird tints or haze:
And again, my original final image:
Although I'll probably stick to my original workflow, there are some nice things in this set I'll be using in the future- particularly their frequency separation and dodge & burn.
What do you think? Which do you like best?
