Smart Dodge & Burn
Dodging and burning involves sculpting the highlights and shadows of an image to add contrast and definition. Used by professional compositers, retouchers, and image creators, it’s one of the most powerful and effective techniques out there!
Pro-Results in an Instant
With our Smart Dodge & Burn Photoshop Action, getting a professional finish on your images has never been easier. Instantly add shape and definition to any photo–portraits, landscapes, and everything in between.
Large & Small Details
Our Dodge and Burn Action can be used on small detail areas, like the eyes, lips, and skin to even out exposure and draw more attention to a subject’s key features. You can also use it sculpt larger textures and shapes, like emphasizing a person’s musculature or the details in a landscape.
Why Dodge & Burn?
Dodging and burning is both powerful and versatile. You can use it to add definition to any image that feels a little flat, emphasize interesting shapes and textures, or to guide the eyes of the viewer to areas of a photo that matter most.
Highlights & Shadows
Our Smart Dodge & Burn Action is a great tool that can help you even out the lighting and exposure of an image. Reduce dark spots and smooth transitions in just a few clicks!

extremely useful !!!
Love the Action Tool! Thanks
Simple and easy to use 🙂
Oh my goodness!!! I just finished editing my granddaughters’ photos which took me FOREVER because I wanted them as perfect as possible – and I got carried away with the number of photos I wanted to edit. LOL! Wish I had watched these tutorials (and gotten access to the actions) before I did them. Could have saved tons of time – especially with the Dodge and Burn edits. Thank you so much for sharing your “magic”!
COOL!!! Making life a lot easier.
Definitely a great tool, I love it
You guys simply kick ass!!!
Brilliant! So simple and easy to implement. Just click, brush, and you’re done!
Super simple but incredibly helpful to my workflow. Thanks Phlearn!
