IMAGE ENHANCEMENT PHOTOSHOP ACTIONS INCLUDED IN THIS PAK
|BLACK & WHITE EFFECTS
Note re: BW Actions
A note, please play and read.
Sub-Grain - Contrasty / Grain 1 - Slight / Grain 2 - More / Grain 3 - Heavier / Grain 4 - "Z" Films
The above are nice "film-like" grain effects in varying styles and amounts. We've used proprietary techniques to avoid the "digital noise" look. They give a more organic feel to images and often increase apparent sharpness and contrast slightly. Use one after a black and white Action for best effect.
Skin Cream 1
Run this BEFORE a black and white Action to brighten and smooth skin color in the resultant black and white. Works best on redder or ruddy skin tones. Works nicely on children or babies with red, spotty cheeks. Use on color images does not produce desirable effects..
Skin Cream 2
A variation on above.
BW GM Warm 1 and Snappy
One of our favorite black and white conversions. Allows for tunability of the tonal qualities and imparts a slight warmth and punch.
BW GM Warm 2 and Snappy
A variation on the above.
BW KPZ Grainy Film
A high speed film effect with grain added.
BW KPZ 2 GMap Grainy Film
Another high speed film effect using Gradient Mapping and grain added.
BW via LAB
Black and white conversion using the LAB color mode.
BW via LAB with Color
As above, but with the original color layer added back for use in hand
BW Punchy Bump Grain ChaMix
A snappy black and white conversion with some grain.
BW Channel Mixer 70 20 10
BW Channel Mixer 45 32 32
Two conversion using favorite formulas.
BW Film Filter Adjustment 2
Allows for pre-filtering the image to control the way certain color values
are converted to black and white, similar to putting a colored filter over
the lens and shooting black and white film - but much more powerful.
BW 100 Red
Using the classic channel mixer formula. Light etheral skin tones.
BW 100 Red Punchy
As above, but with more contrast.
BW TastyGlow 2
Black and white with a glowing effect.
BW Glow Punchy
Similar to above but with more punch.
BW InfraKev 1
Not exactly infrared, but a similarly enhanced black and white conversion.
A fashion black and white look. More contrast, punch, and drama.
BW KK Secret Formula
Rich and dramatic, not for the conservative! Works nice where faces are
well lit. Otherwise creates a feel of very dramatic lighting.
BW Warming Filter
Use this after a normal black and white conversion to add depth and slight warmth. Not enough color to be sepia, just a warmer, tastier black and white.
BW Enriching Formula
Another formula to richen a black and white conversion.
Sepia Deep Black 1
A sepia conversion that goes beyond the typical. Maintains true black in the deepest shadows and clean whites in the highlights. Avoids the muddy look of most sepia conversions. Rich and yummy.
Sepia Deep Black 2
A tonal variation on the above.
Sepia Deep Black 3
Chocolate Syrup 1
Mmmmm, like a hot Mocha in the morning.
Chocolate Syrup 2
More, more, more!
A bright, sunny, glowing effect. Try it on outdoor natural light images with bright highlights.
Sunglow 2 More
A softer version of above.
KPD Hollywood Intensity
Nice color, deep and romantic, similar to Hollywood film technique of using black net over lens - but more color enhanced.
x-Process I / x-Process 2 / Kev X-Process Combo
Three variations on a classic fashion look: cross-processed film.
Contrasty, enhanced color similar to Fuji's Velvia.
One of our most used Actions. Simple but highly effective. Program an F key for this one!
Vibrant, radiant color and a subtle glow.
Kubota Light GlowSoft / Kubota lLght GlowSoft Vibrant / Kubota lLght GlowSoft Highlights / Kubota Darker GlowSoft
The above give beautiful romantic effects. Try the variations to see what you like best for each image.
Backlight Compensation 1x
Raises the shadow values without affecting the highlights as much. Try it on backlit photos with slightly under-exposed foregrounds.
Backlight Compensation 2x
Stronger version of above.
Eyes and Teeth Enhance
Creates layers pre-set for retouching the eyes and teeth. Use for lightening eye whites & teeth and for removing red/yellow from eyes and teeth. Also use for an "eye-liner" effect to enhance lashes and eyebrows. Instructions will display when run.
81K Warming / 82K Warming
Simple but useful warming gel filters. Add a little mood to a blah, cool image.
Lower contrast and color saturation for portraits.
A very useful midtone brightener. Works surprisingly well on many images.
-Note on WB correction Actions
A note to read.
Too blue - tung -> daylight I
Too blue - tung -> daylight 2
Too warm - daylight -> tung 1
Too warm - daylight -> tung 2
day to tung filter PS CS only
Attempts to fix images shot with the wrong white balance settings. Note, however, that each camera and each scene, and different settings will give different variations in the white balance error, so the Action may need some tweaking for your particular images. It should get you in the ballpark though.

After your order is placed, you will receive an email with a download link for the Action DASHBOARD 3. If you have already downloaded and installed it, it is not necessary to do so again and you should purchase this product directly from your DASHBOARD by clicking on the 'Purchase' button. If this is your first installation of the Action DASHBOARD 3, your Kubota Action DASHBOARD will appear as a trial version for the first 30 days following your installation, with or without purchase. Everyone starts off in trial mode, which includes most of our Kubota Actions and the Kubota Action DASHBOARD PRO version. You can enter in the license code you receive with your purchase any time within the trial period and you will still have access to everything for those 30 days. At the end of the trial, your license will keep active only the products you own.
Please note, if you already own other Kubota DASHBOARD Paks and use DASHBOARD 3, the new license code will only activate the new Pak and only one license code can be used at a time. Thus, if you activate this new code, you will only be granted access to this Pak and will no longer be able to access your other purchased Paks. No need to fear, we will consolidate all of your purchases as soon as possible and send you your updated code. To avoid this delay, and for immediate access to these Actions, purchase this product directly from your DASHBOARD by clicking the 'Purchase' button.
