How do I use the Photoshop actions?

The first thing you need to do is to drag-and-drop a Lens Distortions filter into your photo project… Once you’ve done that, simply apply the Control action to the filter, and you’re all set.

There are 5 different controls in each of our Photoshop actions:

  • Controls (i.e. “Light Hit Controls”)
  • Toolkit – Softness +
  • Toolkit – Sharpen +
  • Toolkit – Fix Banding
  • Reset Group

Controls

This is the primary action you’ll use, and applies all the default Lens Distortion settings to your filter. To use it, select the Lens Distortions filter you want to apply it to, then click the little “play” button in the actions panel.

Toolkit – Softness +

Once you’ve applied the Controls action above, you can use this action to add some Softness to the filter. Open the main filter folder, and apply this effect directly to the filter.

Toolkit – Sharpen +

Once you’ve applied the Controls action above, you can use this action to add some Sharpness to the filter. Open the main filter folder, and apply this effect directly to the filter.

Toolkit – Fix Banding

If you are running into any banding, chances are Photoshop defaulted your project to 8 Bit. Apply this action to update your project to 16 Bit.

 

Reset Group

If you need to start over, apply this action to the main filter folder to reset all it’s effects.
