Thursday Giveaway

It’s that time again, people!  I am going to give you some FREE stuff!!  Whooooohoooo!

This week we have a little something for the Elements gang!  We have three actions that will work seamlessly in either Photoshop Elements or Photoshop CS3-CC.  I know the Elements-ers are often under-represented in the actions market, but I am trying to make sure that you all get your fair share of FREE stuff!

The sample pack contains the ever-popular Sunshine Pop, the number one Flow favorite!  It is a quick way to start every image, with a little sharpening, a little warmth and a wee pop of contrast.  Also included are a shimmering, silvery black & white that has a very nostalgic feel (used on the image below) and Flow’s own Haze Buster, a great sharpening tool for print prep and to really clean up those soft pixels!

Don’t forget to share the word about all this FREE, good stuff on Facebook, Google + and Instagram! I am pretty sure your friends like FREE stuff too (because nothing is better than FREE!).  Tag your images @flowforphotographers and #flauntmyflow and you might just see your image featured on the Flow pages!:)

Watch Mandy Monday!

Have you heard? Beginning March 3rd, I will be have a weekly one-hour online meeting where you can watch and listen to me edit!! And the best part? It is only $10 to sit in on the live presentation!

Each week, I will be covering a different topic, in either Photoshop or Lightroom (and Elements sometimes too!).  Topics will range from creating stunning black & white images to completing a newborn edit in less than 5 minutes! I will also be having a brief Q + A at the end of each session and I am an open book, so this will be a great opportunity to really get to the heart of each editing topic discussed.  The live meeting will run from 1:00 – 2:00 pm EST (UTC -5).

Can’t sit in on the live course due to other commitments?  Never fear!  I will be making a recording of each session, which will be available for purchase afterward.  Live participants will receive a discount on the video, but it will be available to everyone!

Course calendar and details about registration can be found HERE!



Thursday Giveaway

It’s that time again, Flow followers!  Thursday Giveaway – whoot!

This week’s offering is a sample preset pack for Lightroom 4 & 5, which includes 3 yummy black & white conversions.  It is no secret that I am partial to an awesome monochromatic image and many have said that I am a guru of creating stunning BW conversions.  Oh, and I am SUPER modest too.;)

So if ya want some black & white goodness, click the download link below!  The image here was converted using the included preset Slumber, which is a little moody and has a nice rich contrast.  LOVE.  Also included are Warm & Juicy, the LR equivalent of my most popular BW action in the Dream in Black & White Action set, as well as Retro Cool, which has subtle blue toning and a matte feel, to give your images a little throwback edginess.

Remember, tag your images #flauntmyflow and feel free to share on Instagram or Facebook! Happy Thursday, peeps!

Thursday Giveaway

Did you think I forgot about you all?  Alas, I was so swamped last week that Thursday came and went without squeaking over here to post a giveaway!  But now I’m back!

This week we have a mini-set of Photoshop Actions (compatible with CS3-CC), with a variety of looks from a warm, rich black & white to a dreamy haze that will make your images incredibly soft and light.  And as a bonus, one of my always-popular Skin Softening actions, to help you give your clients soft, smooth and glowing skin!

You know what I love most about Photoshop Actions?  They are so easy to change to suit my style and mood!  All Flow Actions come with fully-editable, unflattened layers in a group, which can be masked as a whole or tweaked layer by layer!  The versatility and flexibility are amazing.  Just another reason why Photoshop is my not-so-secret boyfriend.

The image below was edited using Color Punch, a great quick action that can give you awesome color right from RAW!

Enjoy your FREEBIES everyone! Feel free to spread the word to your friends, your neighbors, your dog (who is snoring on a nearby pillow, if he/she is anything like mine), and don’t forget to tell your fellow photogs!  I love giving away FREE stuff to EVERYONE!!  Remember to swing by the Flow Facebook Page for the latest news and updates, and to tag your favorite images #flauntmyflow!
