Making your pictures look like photographs

I came up with a set of actions for Photoshop to help speed up our production time by automating repetitive tasks.

One of the elements included in the action "set" is a method to quickly enhance an average looking capture ~ I'm talking about the image as it comes right out of the camera, not the subject matter.

Many of the actions included in the "Deutsch Production Actions" set deal with cropping and resizing images and preparing them for upload to your lab, while others focus on enhancing your portrait and wedding images.

Click on the image to see the larger resolution before and after image. Then watch he video to see how easily this picture was transformed in to a beautiful photograph.

So easy, even cave man.....ah never mind;) Enjoy! ~ Oh, by the way, see my signature at the bottom? That was created with another action that's included in the set :)

Creating a Legacy

When tragedy strikes a family, one of the first things people look for are photos of their loved ones.

Portraits capture the love, the relationships and the feelings that we share with one another. It is something that may seem costly at first but families that take the time and invest in professional portraits create a legacy for themselves and for future generations.

As time goes by and one year slips into the next, I realize how important it is to look back on old family portraits. I am comforted by seeing the beautiful images of my family members who are no longer with us. Fortunately for me, my family took the time to create that legacy... that memory.

You never can tell what the future holds. The time to create your family legacy is now.

We are offering specially priced portrait packages through the month of April for anyone who would like to create a legacy of their own.

~Yes. It's that important to me.

Mention this post to receive up to 50% off selected "Creating a Legacy" portrait collections.

Call now 248-560-3100 or email a note with Creating a Legacy in the subject line. Don't wait until it's too late.

Update on the copyright brush

Ok. I just learned something about Mac's today. Maybe that's why my brain hurts. In order to create the © symbol, you have to press option G while in the type (T) tool.

If you are working on a PC laptop that doesn't have a separate number pad on the right and you're forced to use those numbers at the top of the screen, it won't work either.

I will have to look at an old laptop to figure it out, but until then happy computing:)
