I don't know about you, but I love me some Instagram. I love the tiny little square photos with nifty filters that help capture my everyday life. They can take a ordinary photo and breathe some real life into. But I love photography and filters so maybe that's just me.
Well I also love Photoshop and wanted to be able to apply some of those awesome Instagram filters without losing the original quality of my photo. Thanks to Google I found some FREE actions to do just that!
And I give to you the two best ones I found:
Freebie: 10 Instagram Photoshop Actions
Instagram Filters as Photoshop Actions
I'm so excited! Check out the pictures I edited from Easter using the actions.*
(* I also adjust other things like exposure and brightness before applying the filters. I'll share some of my secrets in another post.)
I think these actions work with Photoshop Elements as well. *THINK* But they are free so just download them and see.
OH and to get the actions to show up, open Photoshop, click Window then actions. Along the top bar of your actions tab to the far right will be a series of lines with a upside down triangle. Click that and scroll down to Load Actions then select the actions file from wherever you saved it to when downloading.
Feel free to email me or comment if you need help. This was too good not to share if you're a lover of Instagram like myself.
