Never a bridesmaid

Photobucket
I'm so lazy sometimes. I use actions way too much. But they give me the results I'm looking for in less than half the time. And someday, maybe I'll be able to figure out Photoshop. But until I do, I'll tell you what I used on these lovely little white phlox: Totally Rad's Super Fun Happy, lowering the opacity and then PW's Lovely and Ethereal. It was exactly what I wanted. Ok. Now I'm talking too much.

Nancy Lovering said...

That's pretty! I like your photos :-)

Mary said...

Beautiful!!! I'm still trying to get comfortable with just opening a photo in PS, so actions sound difficult to me! LOL

Lovely, lovely! Wow, if we could get Mary to set one of her white on white table settings with those...that would be perfect!

super fun happy is one of my favorite actions, as well as PW's lovely & ethereal! they both give it that fuzzy quality, but PW's boosts the color more where TRA's desaturates it. i imagine using the 2 of them together creates a nice, happy medium! your phlox looks perfect!

Welcome to Nancy. Nice to see you here.
Hello again, Marchelle. You look familiar. I really need to buy the whole set that the Boutwell's offer. Super Fun came as a sample. I can't wait to see PW's new set.

Thanks to all. I really like the simplicity of this photo. I mean, it's just phlox but close up, it's lovely!
