Messing With Actions | Bellingham Photographer

So, I've been messing around with Photoshop actions.  I always think those preset actions floating around out there are not necessarily adaptable to both people and landscape shots, so I always try actions on both.  In my experimenting, I found myself feeling a bit inspired to make a poster from an image I shot back on August 23.  I used actions to age the photo to something you would see on a postcard from 1910 and 1970.

 This is the original... Taken on August 23, 2010
 This is the image tweaked to look like a 1910 postcard...
The image tweaked again to look like a 1970s postcard...
And finally, the poster I created.  Not that I'll do anything with it, but it was a fun experiment.
