Bits of 2012 + Free photoshop curve giveaway!


All in all, 2012 has been fantastic. From left to right are pictures taken over the year, starting with January ending with December (tell me which is your favorite by month!). 2012 is also a year I gained a whole new perspective on photography, and I am always grateful for all the lovely people I meet along the way. 

To show my appreciation for your constant support and kind words, I decided to make an end-of-year gift - free preset! This pastel curve is a little similar to the [enhancing action] I shared months ago, but this is much more light and dreamy as I tuned down the contrast and added the fade effects. You can always lower the opacity of the curve if you think it's too bright! 

Download Photoshop Pastel Curve, Pastelle [here].

AFTER. 


Other examples. 


If you encounter any problems with the curve, leave me a comment so I can assist you. 

Happy New Year, lovelies! x

love, M

      Hey love! Thanks so much for your kind words! To make it full size, I selected the option 'original size' from Blogger image uploader. The option will appear everytime you click on one picture in the posting space :)

      Hey Wenda, thanks a lot! I'm afraid you can't download the curve on your tablet, unless your tablet has fully functional Photoshop? Also, I don't normally use apps other than Photoshop on my computer, so I'm afraid I can't help!! But, I do love the apps Afterglow and VSCO Cam (from Apple Store).

      Have a lovely day!

      Hello, thanks so much for the feedback. I'm keen on making more tutorials to share & I'm really glad you love it! As for the curve, can you specify how is it un-openable? Did you download the file & load to your Photoshop? It should work fine on any PS versions I suppose!

      Look forward to your reply! :)

  11. hello mandy
    when i open this action with photoshop cs 6 extended,open warning box.it say:"could not complete your request because it is not the right kind of document".And this action is type of file "ACV file" not "ATN file".Because all your action gave before was ATN file.

      Oh, I guess I know where the problem is now! The Photoshop file I'm sharing in this post is a CURVE, not an ACTION, hence it's in ACV file, not in ATN file. You have to open the curve function and load the curve :) Try and let me know! :)
