Look for the Light

These Photoshop Actions are ideal for any backlit image. What does that mean? Well, if you can see the light source in the photo–like a sunset or bright sign–you can apply these effects to enhance that light source. Find the light, then help it shine!

Realistic Effects

Our Actions are designed to add beautiful effects that are both subtle and realistic. Not only do we give you the tools to light rays, color, and haze, we also provide valuable tips to avoid that ‘Photoshopped’ look.

Sun Flares & Light Flares

Take your photos to the next level with quick and easy light effects. Help a sunset pop off the screen or add some dramatic light rays to bring a scene to life.

Sunset Color

Add deep reds, oranges, and yellows for rich, vibrant sunsets. Sometimes our cameras don’t always capture the colors the way we remember them. These Actions can help.

Haze & Atmosphere

Give your photos a vintage feel by adding some haze and atmosphere. If you have a backlit photo that feels a little flat, haze can give it the depth it needs. Better yet, combine the haze with some light rays and color for a more powerful effect!

Photoshop Actions are a series of steps that have been recorded by their creator. This sequence of steps can then be reapplied at any time, which allows you to recreate the end result without having to go through each individual step every time. Think of them as short cuts.

A basic understanding of Photoshop is suggested. We designed the Photoshop Actions to be as simple as possible. After loading the Actions into Photoshop, simply double-click on the action to apply it to your photo.

PHLEARN Photoshop Actions are created by PHLEARN founder Aaron Nace.

Yes! Each of our Photoshop Actions creates a new group in your layers panel. Feel free to stack as many actions together as you please.
