Default May Challenge #3: Creative Photo Editing

Hello and welcome to the Creative photo Editing Challenge!

In my part of the world the days are getting longer and we have much more light! I love this season when the dark and grey disappears. This light and brightness I love to show in my layouts and photo's too! And this months challenge is all about getting more light and brightness in your photo's. There are many ways to give a dark and underexposed photo some more light! For example In photoshop or Lightroom you can use the exposure slider in Camera Raw. Or In Photoshop and Photoshop Elements you can use Adjustmentlayers like the Curves and Levels. For some more color you can boost the Vibrance and Saturation. A very quick and more easy way to give a photo some more light and color in Photoshop or Photoshop Elements is to use an Action. You just play the action and it does all the steps for you! When I want a quick result on a slight dark and under exposed dull photo I often use the same action that I downloaded some time ago! This one gives light and a color pop!
Maybe you would love to experiment a little with this free action on your photo and try out how this works! The result will be different on each photo. You get a feel for the type of photo that will work great as you used it a couple of times!

Here is the link tot that free action: https://www.brusheezy.com/actions/27...-effect-action

I use it on photo's all the time. Mostly as starting point. Sometimes it's great to run the action twice. Or I combine it with some Creative filters.

Here you see the result on this photo:

If you need some more info on installing and playing actions you can read it here: https://creativemarket.com/blog/how-...toshop-actions
Or here: https://www.greaterthangatsby.com/ho...oshop-actions/

After using the action you can make a page with that wonderful photo you created!

Here is the page I made:


- Create a new layout using the action that can be downloaded for free. You can also make the edits on your photo with an other Action or with the tools in your photo editing program by hand. If you can, show us the before and after photo in your forum post. It's great to see the results.
- Please use 80% Oscraps products.
- Upload your layout to the Challenge 3 photo gallery by midnight PST May 31st, 2018
- And do not forget to update the monthly tracking thread to be eligible for your coupon.

Have fun scrapping!

In addition to the action suggested in the challenge, I also applied a high key effect to all the photos.
