30 of my own personal photoshop actions which I use to edit my photography. These include -

Workflow Enhancers
* Make it pop
* Soft Contrast
* Soft Low Contrast
* Let there be light
* Improve exposure
* Give it some detail
* Fix Shadows
* Fix Highlights
* Simple color boost
* Subtle Spot-light
* Soft Vignette
* Vignette Faded
* Sharp Focus

Tone Enhancers
* Simply Sweet
* Earthy Tones
* Autumn Tones
* Natural (Forest green)
* Melancholy
* Retro
* Vintage lighter - v2 Revamp
* Vintage darker - v2 Revamp
* Strong vintage (+spotlight)
Haze Colors
* Basic white
* Mauve (darker)
* Violet whisper (lighter)
* Sea
* Sepia
* Dawn
* Summer
* Retro haze

These actions should work with most Photoshop CS + versions.
Please remember that it takes a lot more work than just editing a photo as well. Photographers put their heart and soul into taking photographs, which I must stress is much more important than the editing.

When I use each action, some suit portraits and others suit nature, fiddle around with them and toggle the opacity up/down if it's too strong or not enough. Practice makes perfect! Good luck!

:heart: If you download my actions, please fav or share it with others. I've put a lot of work into making them over the years and they're special to me as I've grown and developed with my photography/editing.

KateMcCullough Featured By Owner Aug 15, 2013
The vintage ones are my favorite so far, I used the light pink on the last 4 pictures I uploaded if you'd like to see. :) I credited you, but I'm an internet noob and didn't know how to make it a link! :/
Whimsical-Dreams Featured By Owner Aug 15, 2013   Photographer
Beautiful photos! The light pink definitely suits your latest photos. Thanks for letting me know!
