It's a GIVEAWAY! Pure Photoshop Actions

We have a treat for you today! Not just one, but two prizes are up for grabs...fabulous Pure Photoshop Actions!

One lucky winner will receive the Pure Action Set 1 (a $50 value) and a second lucky winner will receive Everything Pure, which includes ALL the actions from the Pure Actions website ($100 value!)

Here's a little bit of the Pure Action philosophy...

At Pure Actions we believe in showcasing the work of the photographer, rather than stifling it with overly heavy actions. Our actions are light and refreshing and bring out the best in your image.



Our first set it an excellent production set. Pure Action Set 1
It helps you get your image to a perfect, clean edit with helps for exposure and white balance, then you can build on that perfect foundation with color pops, haze actions and black and whites. Once you've used Set 1, you'll have a beautiful image with a gentle style.



Want to go even further? Try Pure Season! They are gentle color washes with seasonal influences. They can bring out warmth and fun in your image and take them to a more artistic place.

We also have our favorite "one-click wonder", our Cross-Process action.
It is gentle and beautifying, without heavy color casts that usually characterize cross-process actions.



With this whole set, you can fix simple issues, and enhance the innate beauty of your photography. Pure Actions allow YOUR image to shine through!



We also leave all of the layers open so that you are in total control of your images.


The actions are BOTH Elements and Photoshop compatible, with the exception of the Cross-Process which only works in Photoshop.




We didn't make these actions to be heavy actions. They are simply a reflection of our workflow, so they are naturally gentle and subtle. You can run actions more then once to get a stronger effect if that is what you feel your picture calls for.



Entering is easy!

Check out the Pure action sets and tell us what kinds of actions you are most interested in by leaving a comment here on the blog.

For an additional entry, become a fan of Pure Actions on facebook! Leave us a second comment to let us know you are a fan!

Two entries per person. Giveaway ends Thursday, October 21 @ 11pm CST.

Good Luck!
