I’ve been using these actions consistently on every single one of my images for the past 7 years and they’ve completely elevated my style while I keep my editing speed. They are made to amplify and strengthen your current style whatever it may be. These gentle photoshop actions are easy to use, layer, and mix together to put finishing touches and tweaks on your work.

About This Product

Although I love Lightroom and use it primarily for all of my color correcting, I’ve always felt like it only gets my photos 85% of the way there. I originally learned to edit in Photoshop and relied on actions for my color correcting workflow. After I made the switch to Lightroom, I couldn’t figure out how to achieve the same final product I could get to in Photoshop. I wanted to blend the two programs into one quick workflow which led me to create and refine these 13 Photoshop Actions so you can add them onto any workflow for those final finishing touches that Lightroom can’t always get to.

 

1. Make main color corrections and heavy adjustments in Lightroom using my personal presets, then exporting as JPEGs.
I export at 100 quality, 300 resolution.

2. Open my Lightroom Exports in Photoshop.

3. Make final tweaks with the actions to get to my finished product. Save final images at 10 quality JPEG. They’re ready to deliver!

Bump up the exposure slightly.

DARKEN
Darken the exposure slightly.

WARM SHADOWS
Give your undertones a warmer feel,
great for improving skin tones and
giving a subtle golden touch to images.

COOL SHADOWS
Give your undertones a cooler feel,
I especially love using this on
overcast images.

COLOR PUSH – YELLOW >RED
If your image feels too magenta or
red, this action will gently balance
it. I primarily use it for balancing
skin tones.

COLOR PUSH – RED >YELLOW
Used for pulling saturation out of
red and yellow, I primarily use it
for balancing skin tones.

SATURATION PULL – RED
AND YELLOW
Used when there is red splotchiness,
cold red noses/ears, flushed cheeks, or
overall too pink of skin. Paint the effect
where you want, control the strength.

SKIN FIXER – RED
Used when the subject has overly
saturated skin tones that are not
natural. Paint the effect where you
want, control the strength.

SKIN FIXER – ORANGE
My number one! With slight color
adjustments and increased contrast
this is my go to for so much of my work.
This is my favorite action and I
commonly combine it with the gentle
curve booster and top it off with the
matte finish for my final look.

BASE CURVE BOOSTER
A soft curve tweak that smooths out
images and adds a creamy feel to images.
I love this action on its own or combined
with the base curve booster as an added
layer!

GENTLE CURVE BOOSTER
My finishing touch on every image for a
soft, natural and matted look.

MATTE FINISH
My finishing touch on every image for a
soft, natural and matted look.

MAGIC TRIO
Because I love the combination of the
Base Curve Booster, Gentle Curve Booster
and Matte Finish I put them all together
into one to save time so I can single click
edit and save. Yay for saving time!

 

+ I’ll teach you how to crate your own tweaks & save actions for each set of images so you can save time on, well, tweaking and saving!

What They’re Saying

  1. Lexie Haslem

    I have edited two weddings with your new honey presets and it has taken me a 2-3 hours per wedding. THEY WORK SO FLAWLESSLY AND ARE SAVING ME SO MUCH TIME. It's obvious you poured your heart and soul into them- So thank you!! Literally never been able to use just one preset on a wedding. You have changed my whole life. I run a successful business, working when I want, and how I want doing what I love. I bought my first camera 2 years ago and stumbled upon your education and took it all straight to heart. I did it all. I know everything I know from you. You're an incredible business woman and I look up to you for that but I mean you should realize you're literally changing peoples lives and setting us free to be the creatives that we want to be! I am finally happy and balanced in life. Something I was searching for. THANK YOU.

  2. Bailey Dougan

    INDIA! This preset package and the video is something I wish every photographer would invest in. I’m so excited to finish watching the videos so I can dive into editing. I’ve truly never been this excited to edit photos I used to dread it. So THANK YOU!!! You are so very talented and I look up to you so much !

  3. Dayna Grace Photography

    I looove the format of this preset! I’m obsessed with the way you can change it to be a different style with just a couple clicks. As someone who doesn’t normally shoot “moody” or a super similar style, it was fun to play with the different feels while still being easy to make only a couple adjustments to match my style perfectly! This set isn’t going to be a one-size-fits-all in one click, but that’s not what presets are designed for!! They are made to help enhance your skills as an editor and give you new tools to create magic with. And this preset does exactly that! It is the perfect set of tools to take your editing to the next level.

  4. Dawn Piebenga

    I have an photo inspiration board in my office, and I’ve always been so frustrated with my edits because I’ve always wanted this film dreamy soft tones and I have yet to figure it out. So basically these Honey presets are putting me to tears. I truly love that you only have ONE preset option, I think thats really smart! All your variations and brushes for the preset are great! I know you want brutal honest feedback, but I am truly obsessed! I love your educational video tutorials to help, you are so good about explaining all the bits + pieces, and being so encouraging about making it your own still.

  5. Kylie Morgan

    Omg suchhh a different approach to presets!! Such a new and fresh take on it, that I personally think is what people need! This approach definitely informs people on how to USE the controls in Lightroom and what they affect, rather than clicking a preset and not even knowing what they are manipulating.

  6. Kendal Walker

    Not gonna lie when I first heard India's preset pack was only one preset with modifiers, I was a little skeptical. BUT HOLYYYY it is genius, I'm so stoked on them. The tones I can get in any lighting situation is pretty unreal, and brushes that are included have already changed my life. These presets give you room to learn your editing style, and I've already seen a huge improvement in my work just after editing one session. They are freaking timeless and I will probably use them for the rest of forever!

  7. Cara Mia Photography

    India's new preset is brilliant. It goes along with everything she does in photography education, actually teaching the user how to edit instead of giving a one-click approach (making it worth so much more than typical preset packs). She includes a set of modifiers for different lighting situations—dark, overly-orange, a dreamy film look, you name it. The greens are out of this world. Doesn't matter where you're shooting or at what time of day, the Honey preset will get you where you need to go. I've already learned more about my editing style trying these out than I have with any other set. I've used almost every preset out there (including India's old set), and this is by far the best one.

  8. Jordy B Photography

    HOLY MOTHER *EXPLETIVE*. These are pure magic. I absolutely love how you created these presets with the ability to make them completely unique to my style and the way I love to edit, but also giving me a base to work with that has such pretty tones and emotion. The tutorials helped a TON and I loved watching you edit. I would call these the 'presets of all presets' because the modifiers help with every lighting situation. They are versatile and easy to work with the achieve the exact look you are going for. I have tried them on studio lighting, flash, natural, harsh; and was able to create a style I liked with them all. I LOVE THESE. YOU HAVE DONE IT AGAIN.

Frequently Asked Questions
HOW DO YOU USE THE ACTIONS?
I personally use these on all of my Lightroom JPEG edits. Although they can be used on RAW image files, they were created with the intent of using on JPEG files. Included in your purchase is an online video tutorial on how to use them, what each action is intended for, and how to create your own actions to use along with them!
DOES ADDING PHOTOSHOP INTO YOUR WORKFLOW MAKE THE EDITING PROCESS TAKE A LOT LONGER?
Not with these babies! These actions are click and go. If a session takes me an hour to edit in Lightroom, it will typically take me about 20 minutes to make all of my Photoshop adjustments, so about 1/3 of the time.
IF I HAVE YOUR PRESETS ALREADY (OR OTHER PRESETS), DO I NEED THESE?
Although I love my Lightroom edits I still always feel like there’s one more step I can take with them to take them to the next level and put finishing touches on them. I also feel it’s good to give yourself one more chance to make final tweaks to your images in case there’s anything you missed the first time going through them! With that being said, you don’t need them, they’re an optional add on to any workflow if you feel you want an easy way to amplify the edits and style you currently already have.
WHAT FILE TYPES ARE THE ACTIONS MEANT FOR?
These actions were designed to be used on JPEG images. Although they can be used on RAW image files just the same, I personally only edit my exported Lightroom JPEG edits. I export my LR edits at 100 quality, 300 resolution.
DO THEY WORK ON RAW IMAGE FILES?
Yes, they do! They work the same.
DO YOU USE THESE ON EVERY PHOTO? OR JUST SOME?
Call me crazy, but yes I do! Every time a photographer hears that I run every single one of my images (yes, even group photos and details and all that stuff!) through Lightroom AND Photoshop, they gasp. But truthfully they don’t take much time to add onto a workflow if you know how to use them and what you’re going for! I love them and feel like they’re the cherry on top of an ice cream sundae. Not necessary but make such a big difference in my opinion!
I ALREADY USE PHOTOSHOP AS MY PRIMARY EDITING SOFTWARE, WOULD I STILL BENEFIT FROM USING THESE?
If you’re really new to Photoshop, yes. They’ll help you save time and speed up your workflow. If you’re really familiar with Photoshop and you already have your own actions created that seem similar to mine based on the before and afters, then spend your money on tacos instead! You can also feel free to submit some edits to me for me to use the actions on so you can see a before and after preview of them on your own work. Email to learn@indiaearl.com.
ARE REFUNDS ALLOWED?
Because of the digital nature of this product, there are no refunds allowed, no exceptions.
