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!

i dont know what i do wrong - (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) a big black spot in the middle...it´s my result in the picture

You should be in the layer's MASK. Is that selected when you click on the image with the brush? (meaning that there are white corners around the thumbnail) if not, click on it before you use the brush on the image. :)
