Portrait Action by provity Portrait Action by provity
This is free for anybody to use. Big thanks to everyone that has added it to their favourites!


How to use this action:

There is a file included that says how the action should be used, but it isn't completely correct, so here is the full how-to.

- Open an image in Photoshop
- Run Part 1 of the action
- Select a sharpness that you think looks good
- Click on the layer mask on the layer between the Levels layer and the Brightness/Contrast layer (if you have opened an image straight into Photoshop this should be called Layer 1)
- Select a black round brush big enough to cover all of the image but the corners at around 20% opacity
- Click on the centre of the image. Repeat until you are happy with the saturation
- Click on the very top layer
- Press cmd+alt+shift+e (Mac) or ctrl+alt+shift+e (PC)
- Rename the layer 'Layer 7'
- Run part two of the action
- Done

Enjoy!

THANKSS .... BUT WHERE DO I DOWNLOAD THE ACTION ??????

asharashark Featured By Owner Oct 7, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
on the right hand side of your screen as you view the deviation, there should be a sidebar. At the top of that sidebar are the share buttons for fb tumblr etc., and below that there's the 'Add to Favourites' button. Just below that, there should be a 'Download' button which you can use to download it. It's zipped, so you will need to unzip it using something like 7zip or winrar. Hope this helps!
