** Testimonials **
"Played with these immediately after buying them... blown away by how brilliant these actions are! *Workflow time saver x100!*"
"These skin actions are by-far superior than any others out there. *I’m a high-end retoucher by-trade and these actions achieve a very natural appearance.** I still prefer to retouch manually by splitting the image into high & low frequency (and healing on those two passes) because of the control I have, but when I’m in a hurry, this set is absolutely fantastic!"*
"I am in LOVE with these actions!!!* I have a skin disorder and these actions improve my skin so much! Thank you for creating such a great product!"*
"This is by far the best skin action I've seen!* I'm a photographer and was doing a lot of what this collection offers manually. I had a series of skin brushes and literally had to paint away blemishes, etc. on my own. This set has eliminated all of the extra work and I'm so glad I happened upon it! This is an invaluable resource. Thank you so much!"*
"Amazing! This is probably one of the most helpful photoshop actions I've ever used. *Saves a ton of time, the results are fantastic, and I couldn't be happier with the purchase.** Wonderful work!"*
