Hello people :wave:

More and more people are using Photoshop Actions, whether for photography, photomanipulation, or other style of art you like.
The truth is that these Photoshop Actions improve the final result in many ways and make it easy for you to achieve the most incredible effects.

What are photoshop Actions?
- Photoshop actions are a pre-recorded set of actions done in photoshop to achieve a certain effect. Instead of loosing maybe 1 hour trying to get the perfect contrast, texture, or even more complex effects, just by pressing Play, you have all these steps in 3 seconds.

After I download the Photoshop Actions, how do I install and use them?
- After you download the file, in case it's zipped, you must unzip t first. The file will be something like XXXX.atn. Then you must copy that file and paste it on the Photoshop Actions folder: My Computer > Local Disc > Programs > Adobe > Adobe Photoshop > Presets > Photoshop Actions.
After this procedure, on your Photoshop you must go to Window > Actions and, on the box where you have your actions, you must press the little button on the rigth upper corner (not the close button lol)and then choose Load Actions. After this is done, you just need to choose the Action you just pasted before and it's ready to use; press Play and see the magic happening on your image.

Now I've selected some Free Photoshop Actions available right here on deviantART.
Please feel free to Browse on Categories > Resources > Application Resources > Photoshop Actions to find many more Photoshop Actions for you to use. As I told, this is just a small selection among all the variety available on deviantART.
Take care :heart:

What are Photoshop Actions?
Photoshop Actions are the recordings of commands that can be applied to one or multiple images in Photoshop. When you press play, it applies these recorded commands. Think about changing the mood in a picture with various adjustment layers. Using an action can actually help you save a lot of time.

Which versions of Photoshop are lieveheersbeestje's actions compatible with?
All Photoshop CS versions, CS2 to CS6 Extended. My actions are not compatible with Photoshop Elements or other programs.

From putting actions on DA, I have been continuously been shocked by the ratio of downloads versus comments and favorites.

Some actions have over 100 downloads and only 10 comments (or less)! feed back is always appreciated-

It takes some time to put together an action, and after you load the action it only takes 1 press of a button to use.  It also takes just one click to add a action to your favorites and show some support and appreciation.

This is a feature for some of my favorite actions!

view, download and show some love:

I know that a lot of Skyward Sword fans love Ghirahim. How could you not? He's fabulous. xD But am I the only one who's really interested in the way he behaves and how he acts? Like... It's hard to explain because I have an incredible headache, but I'll get through it. I think I've come up with a theory.

First, let's start off with Ghirahim's relationship with Demise. Obviously, Ghirahim's main desire in the game is to revive his master. Am I the only one who thinks that desire only reaches to a certain extent? Being that I'm one of the ones who thinks Demise seriously abuses the crap out of Ghirahim, I think his wish only covers half of his heart. On the other half, I think Ghirahim is afraid. Before he was sealed away by Hylia, Demise probably threatened Ghirahim to have him destroyed or something if he didn't revive him. And, being Ghirahim, I would seriously be worried. I think Demise has the full capability to revive himself (just look at the Imprisoned), but it's just that it would take a bit longer than if his faithful servant were to do it. I think Ghirahim agreed half because he was scared to death of a fate worse than death itself, and half only true loyalty to Demise.

Next, the way he looks, how he talks, and things like that. Yes, I agree that Ghirahim is possibly the most flamboyant character I have ever seen in a video game. I love it, though, because I like coming up with theories to explain it. Has anyone ever wondered why he dresses like this? I don't want to hear "because hes gay" either, because I'm actually getting somewhat tired of hearing that. I think the reason he wears the makeup is to hide possible bruises on his face. Why is the black diamond on the side covered by his hair? Painted over a bruise. Why does he have such a solid color of eye shadow? Black eye, my dear. I know it sounds weird to have a bruise for that long of a time, but think about it. He's a demon, and apparently immortal. Maybe wounds take longer to heal because he lives longer? Maybe.

Now, personally my favorite part of this theory, why Ghirahim acts... like he does towards Link. I don't mean the tongue thing (because I really don't know how to explain that xD), but why he lets him go the first two times you fight him, and why he seems so intent on getting something out of Link. Now, I am somewhat of a GhiraLink shipper (crack pairings ftw), but I'm not gonna say "becauz he luuuves him" as a reason. I think.. Ghirahim is secretly hoping. I think he's hoping for Link to notice something's wrong with him. Going back on the "Demise abuses Ghirahim" theory, I think Ghirahim is secretly hoping that Link would notice how much he talks about his master, the way he speaks so fondly of his loving master, and maybe try to help him. He couldn't let Link get too suspicious though (Demise: I WILL KEEL U), so he only keeps it subtle. Apparently too subtle. Adding on to this, I think Ghirahim's clothing is a clear message of "help plz" to Link. Y'know how earlier I was talking about how he wears the makeup to hide the bruises. Well. He probably dresses like that in front of Link to show the bruises. He wants him to notice and wonder what's wrong. He wants help.

Unfortunately though, Ghirahim's efforts went to waste, as Demise was fully resurrected without Link saying a single word. Ghirahim probably felt both incredibly relieved (that he wouldn't get killed) and incredibly angry (at Link for not helping, and the fact that he would probably get abused again by Demise), which is why the last time you fight him, he really tries to kill you. (Ghirahim: FUCK YOU LINK YOU DIDN'T HELP ME WITH MY PROBLEMS DIE!!1!11!!! Okay, jk. xD)

For people that might ask why I think Demise abuses Ghirahim, really look at the ending. Have you seen how Demise acts towards the poor demon? When he was first resurrected, for example. Ghirahim welcomes his master back heartily, obviously expecting an answer in return. Hell, Demise didn't even have to speak. A nod of the head or something. But Demise doesn't even say a word. Instead he forces Ghirahim to the ground (or should I say the air) and changes him into a sword. No "Hello my faithful servant, it's good seeing you again."? That's effed up.

Also, there's the very last bit of the battle with Demise. When Link defeats him, yeah, he mutters some junk about "holy shiz thiz is impawsibeel" and "how culd u defet meh I am teh great Demon King", right? Yeah, then he just sticks Ghirahim in the ground like a worthless piece of trash, and he disintegrates (Now whether Ghirahim is dead or not is up to the player, I personally think he's not dead and finally escaped Demise). HE STICKS HIM IN THE GROUND. LIKE A PIECE OF TRASH. HE PRACTICALLY THREW HIM AWAY. Sorry for using caps, I just get upset because Ghirahim is definitly not worthless, plus he's an amazing character.

Well, that's the last bit of my theory! I'll be sure to add on to it if I come up with anymore. Remember this is just a theory, and you don't have to listen if you don't like it. Anyone else have their own Ghirahim theories? (:
