Action tips...

Quick photo post and some tips for using the actions to the best of their ability.
If you understand layer masks (I really need to post a tutorial), when you get to the color poping layers you can press D (which makes the black the foreground and white the background) and then use a soft round airbrush around 50% to brush over areas of the skin (generally the lips) that might look too saturated. Sometimes you need to make a couple passes. I do this all the time when using the actions after I increase the color opacity. Hope that helps some of you, on several of the color layers, I left them low on purpose. You can increase the color and use this tip to make the skin tones natural.

I wish I knew more about using actions! Do you know of an EASY to understand, basically 'hold my hand while I learn to walk' place to learn how to do them?

I love yours, but wouldn't have a clue as to how to use them. Yes, call me a newbie.... ;)
