Everyone loves a good end of the year round-up list, so this is our top 15 Envato Market resources for Photographers for 2016.
Five Great Photoshop Actions
Give your photos an extra special oomf with this professional package. This has everything from contrast adjustments to replicating fantasy environments and with over 70 actions in total, it’s a bargain.
If you’re a portrait photographer this retouching set will really speed up your workflow. Preserving that all important texture, it works to give natural results while giving you total control over the effect.
We love bundles. This one has a great mix of actions, everything from strong sharpness and contrast for dynamic portraits, to something a little more soft and subtle for landscapes, still life and nature.
We know, sometimes we cringe when we hear HDR too, but these actions blow all the preconceptions out of the water. With quick render, you can test out all the different styles, non-destructively, to make your editing choices that much faster.
Work on your portraits by brushing over the areas you want to improve and then running one of the many actions available to you here. Easy, flexible actions and no scary ‘doll’ look!
Five Great Lightroom Presets
Give your images a touch of Hollywood with these Lightroom Presets. The pack includes 15 different cinematic looks that can transform your image with one click.
This bumper set contains a bit of everything, from simple workflow corrections to more specialised effects like HDR and Light Leak. The HDR Retro 80s action is a personal favourite!
Refine skin’s tone and texture, reduce freckles if required, or banish blemishes with this set of ten actions for Lightroom. The set comes with colour filters to give your portraits some extra zing, too.
Great for any portraits, but especially useful for wedding photographers, this set will give your photographs an instant touch of class. You can adjust each part of the preset individually to get a tailored look for each picture.
It’s winter for many of us and while we dream of taking pictures of a white wonderland, we more likely end up with grey slush. Add some winter magic to your pictures with this set.
Five of Our Favourites
Give your photos or collages a unique look with this set. Create a realistic looking curl and shadow to each photograph, perfect for sending out proofs to clients or even just sprucing up your social media.
Simply paint over your subject and run the action to get this gorgeous shimmer effect. You can customise the layers to get as much or as little of the effect as desired.
19 smoke brushes to add some drama and mystery to your photographs. Try combining a few to make an interesting background or texture.
Everyone loves a little bokeh in their images, right? Well forget shallow depth of field, because you can add your own with these nifty brushes. Remember to combine brushes to avoid them looking too repetitive.
This set comes with eight actions and includes two textures, so there are tons of combinations to be had. The cooler tones and matte look are easy to achieve with these and very popular looks at the moment.
