The Editorial Collection Photoshop Actions by Pratik Naik

(1 customer review)


As a retoucher, having a palette of colors to pick from that go with any image was my goal for this set of Photoshop actions. The collection is versatile in that they span a range of moods and emotions. The inspiration when crafting these came from the editorial world.

The beauty of the collection is that each set of colors transform into a different look based on the image they used. So even though there are 6 actions, the look changes from image to image. You’ll be able to rediscover a new palette with the same action each time you use them.

Each action is completely customizable as every layer is there for you to modify as desired to create your own look. Add your own layers on top to create a signature look.

These actions were also be designed to be stacked to create your own recipe! I recommend combining two of the actions together form an intricate look. For instance, combining Ethereal and Divine brings both the magenta shadows and warmer mood together for something really special.
