Photoshop Actions
$39
Master your DREAM edits with this pack of 13 Photoshop Actions I've created & refined for those finishing touches that Lightroom doesn't always achieve alone. Created as a perfect companion to my Lightroom Honey Presets, these gentle Photoshop Actions are easy to use, layer, and mix together to put the final polish and tweaks on your work to bring out the ultimate magic.

About This Product

My custom photoshop actions created for photographers who want to take their Lightroom edits to the next level with simple finishing touches. 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. After years of realizing that each program couldn’t quite achieve my go-to edit alone, I created a quick, blended workflow between the two programs for optimal results.

13 Photoshop Actions Included

01. BRIGHTEN
Bumps up the exposure slightly.

02. DARKEN
Darkens the exposure slightly.

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

04. COOL SHADOWS
Gives your undertones a cooler feel. (I especially love using this on overcast images.)

05. 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.

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

07. 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.

08. 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.

09. 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.

10. 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!

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

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

13. 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 create 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. Cheyenne Dunn

    I’ve used many presets and nothing compares to India's Honey preset. It is the perfect base to work with if you want those beautiful natural earthy tones. The modifiers make it so easy to change the Vibe of an image in one click, and the brushes are so easy to work with. I'm in awe of this preset and it has been such a game changer for my editing. Helping me find a consistent editing style that is the exact vibe I'm going for. I purchased the honey preset, the photoshop actions and Solis Brushes. All I can say is, wow. They all work together so perfectly to create such dreamy photos. You can tell that India put so much time and love into creating this preset and it truly shows when you're editing with it. Thank you India. I'm literally obsessed.

    I just wanted to reach out and say how grateful and impressed I am by the Honey presets + educational videos. I am blown away. For the longest time I was in my head about presets and didn't want to use them, last year I finally caved after being frustrated by my own editing limitations. The presets I had did exactly what you described in your video. They changed too much and only worked in very specific lighting conditions. After a year of cleaning up after my presets, wasting money on other presets that only gave me more frustration, I remembered an ad for the Honey presets that kept coming up a few years ago and decided to try it out. I used the preset immediately without watching any videos and was underwhelmed at first. I laughed like wow $200 for this. Then I went and started messing with it and watched all of the videos. Now I get it. I love how subtle and versatile this preset and all of it's extra adjustments are. It works in any lighting situation, actually helps greens look good and makes editing ENJOYABLE, which it hasn't been for me lately. I am entering the busiest season I have ever had right now and the anticipation of it has had me so stressed. Part of that being the anticipation of struggling through edits, being scared that I'd deliver something then hate the way it looks two weeks later. And Honey lifted that weight off of my shoulders. I can look forward to editing, be proud of what I deliver and know that my workflow will be so much faster now. The educational videos added SO much value to this as well! Like you went above and beyond for this and it shows. So I just wanted to express my gratitude and say THANK YOU! That is all.

    The preset itself is amazing (and all of the modifiers + brushes), but the educational content that comes with it takes it to a whole new level! On top of learning how to maximize the preset, I learned so much about lightroom and shooting as well! India's videos feel so personal and friendly as well. I haven't felt so inspired to create in a long time! Thank you!!

    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.

    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 !

  7. Dayna G

    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.

  8. Dawn P

    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.

  9. Kylie M

    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.

  10. Kendal W

    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!

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.
