JM PS Portrait Retouching Workflow

This Action Set – The Portrait Retouching Workflow – is the result of years of work in photography industry and post processing. When you press PLAY in a specific action, it’s like you follow one of my recipes for improving your portraits. Some of the actions make Masks and you can use them as Brushes. Very soon I will post some tutorial videos about using each action. If you follow these actions step by step, you can fully retouch a portrait in an amazing way.

These actions work on RAW and JPEG but I recommend using a RAW image format vs JPEG so you will get the best quality. All of the actions are non-destructive and most of them are customisable. 

  • IMPORTANT: Some of the actions use these plugins: DxO Nik Collection, Imagenomic Portraiture & Luminar. If you don’t have bought these plugins, you CANNOT use the specific actions that have these in their names: IM (Imagenomic), Nik (DxO Nik Software), Luminar (Luminar).

All of my Lightroom Presets & Photoshop Actions have been tested on a wide variety of images to help you get the same amazing result in your images too. You can achieve the best result on images that are more neutral toned overall, or images with a perfect exposure. But this is not always possible, so I suggest you to adjust exposure, contrast & other settings, or opacity in the created layers to achieve your desired look!
