Toy Cam V1.0

What's the deal:

This action pack tries to turn your digital photography into heart-warming analog beauties, that were taken with a toy camera like the famous Holga or Diana. Inside the pack you'll find the main actions called Plastic lens and plenty of additional actions (marked with a +) to add that special kind of feeling, like light leaks and dust.


DISCLAIMER: I spent a lot of time creating this action. It helps you to save time, and maybe you can even learn something new. Nevertheless, to install and use Photoshop actions you have to have at least basic Photoshop skills. I won't help you with that. There are plenty of Tutorials on dA and the www.
My actions often have the approach to mimic a certain kind of photographic process. I enjoy to study prints and to reveal its essence, while thinking of a way to empathize this essence with Photoshop. I'm aware that my actions don't create adequate substitutes for an original piece. I just mention this, because there were some purists and hardliners in the past, that shook their heads or even felt offended. Consider this simply a nerdy hobby of mine.
A weak point of Photoshop actions is, that it's not convenient to load files (like textures) during playback, if you want to use the actions on different machines. That's because the paths saved in the action are absolute. To make the outcome perfect, you should adjust the layers and values to your needs and place additional textures manually.
DeviantART has changed the submission rules (again). From now on .ATN files have to be zipped to be approved. Sorry for the inconvenience!

This action is free and Creative Commons,
but if you like it, be kind and spare a dime with PAYPAL.
Thank you very much. :heart:
