I proudly present the HOLGAROID GENERATOR B/W
(color version finally available [link]
Like always this actions pack gives you the total freedom to change any value or to disable layers. As a matter of fact I recommend you to fine-tune your output manually to get better results. Automated procedures like actions can't work perfectly with any photo - specially when it comes to colour tweaking. (Please read the instructions in the ZIP if you don't know how to use Photoshop actions)
This Action Set contains:
4 Type 87 actions (in & outdoor, high & wide format)
6 light leak actions
1 dust'n'dirt action
3 finisher actions
credits would be nice kids! Happy Holgaroiding Check out other fine pieces of german engineering straight out the Rawimage Laboratories!DISCLAIMER: I spent a lot of time creating this action. It helps you to save time, and maybe you can even learn something new. Nevertheless, to install and use Photoshop actions you have to have at least basic Photoshop skills. I won't help you with that. There are plenty of Tutorials on dA and the www.
My actions often have the approach to mimic a certain kind of photographic process. I enjoy to study prints and to reveal its essence, while thinking of a way to empathize this essence with Photoshop. I'm aware that my actions don't create adequate substitutes for an original piece. I just mention this, because there were some purists and hardliners in the past, that shook their heads or even felt offended. Consider this simply a nerdy hobby of mine.
A weak point of Photoshop actions is, that it's not convenient to load files (like textures) during playback, if you want to use the actions on different machines. That's because the paths saved in the action are absolute. To make the outcome perfect, you should adjust the layers and values to your needs and place additional textures manually.
DeviantART has changed the submission rules (again). From now on .ATN files have to be zipped to be approved. Sorry for the inconvenience!
