Blueprint: Before and After with MCP Fusion Photoshop Actions
Blueprint: all Photoshop actions shown in this Blueprint are from the MCP Fusion Photoshop action set
Question: I often get asked “How can I effectively edit subjects with darker skin tones?”
My Answer: Edit them the same as you would any other subjects. Pay attention to brightness. Use layer masking as necessary to maintain the integrity of the image. The image below was literally just a few clicks and I did not need to mask anything.
- Started with the Summer Camp action (adjusted the Fix Underexposure layer inside One Click Color to 72%, Summer Camp folder left at default of 50%)
- Next used the Enclosed vignette action (opacity at 38%)
- Then finished with the Define Detail Enhancer (opacity 92%)
