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 didn't even see the download link to the right on the first Photoshop action I was looking at.  Then I saw it and now I know. That's what most people are missing---------------> and up.
