Review of BP4U's Ultimate Season Action Pack

January 16, 2015  •  Leave a Comment

I was asked by BP4U Photography Tips and Guidelines to review some of their products. My first review is the Ultimate Season Action Pack. I must say I was quite surprised to find that I actually like most of the actions in this set (I have never found an action I like), some more than others. As a whole, they are very simple to use without much adjustment on the artists part. You may want to lower the opacity after running the action on an image, but it's simple and easy to do. The other highlight to this set is that when layering actions there is little to no adjustment except for lowering the opacity to reach the look your going for Let's break it down.

 

Spring Action Pack-

This was by far my favorite of all of them. I used each of them alone and some layered on top of each other. Every effect was simple and looked great right off the bat. The image only improved after layering actions on top of one another. The tones and contrast were spot on. I will be using this set many many more times.

 

My second favorite was the Winter Action Pack. You have the capability to remove the effect from the areas of the image to make it just the way you want it with some of them. But as a whole they were all very subtle and gave my images that extra "pop" that they needed without overpowering it. You can warm your image up or cool it down with the touch of a button. I went warm with this particular image, its cold enough in Winter right?!  The Summer Action Pack was great for the season! The effects are strong and gives you the creative edge to lower or raise the opacity to suit your unique style. There are several that I will add to my horde of actions to pull out and use for future sessions.  And last but not least we have the Fall Action Pack! The colors were are bold and the blacks are black, great for the colorful season its named after. Each action I used added contrast and made vibrant colors even more vibrant,  I used three actions on top of one another and playing with the opacity of the layers I found a happy medium. I must say I quite like this image. Overall I give BP4U Ultimate Season Action Pack a big thumbs up! As a photographer who has not actively used actions I can say that this set will be well used in the upcoming year!
