Fab Free Actions for Elements!

Erin and Rita, two of my favoritest blogging friends, have just completed a HUGE project that we can all benefit from - they've converted the Pioneer Woman Actions to be compatible with Photoshop Elements!

This is wonderful news for us pse users because most actions are only compatible with big photoshop so now there's finally some love for us little guys~

I was actually able to try out the PW Actions early last year right after I had shot my first wedding.  I downloaded the free 30 day trial of Photoshop CS4 and loaded the actions into it.
* just a sidenote...I discovered purely on accident that if you leave the program open and don't turn off your computer that the trial will last way longer than 30 days...just sayin:)

Anyway ~ I wanted to share some of my favorites with you to give you an idea of what can be done with these actions.  Some of them have been tweaked a bit here and there but nothing much:)

Fresh & Colorful


PW Black & White


{...don't ask}

Seventies (my personal favorite)


Boost combined with Soft & Faded


There's several more actions in these sets so have fun and try them all out!

Here's the link:

Thanks for stopping by today. I'm almost embarassed for you to see my pictures becaues yours are so incredible. I'm still at the stage of trying to figure out what all the buttons on the camera are for and how to use them! Photoshop seems like a mountain I will never climb! But I know I can learn a lot from you and plus I want to look at your amazing photos, so I'm following! Blessings to you!
