I love reading blogs that share their photography secrets, so I thought I would share some of mine. I have primarily been using Photoshop Elements with some free actions from The CoffeeShop Blog. It is a fabulous blog, full of great tips - it is well worth it to swing by.
My favorite free actions are: Dandelion Wine, Sun-Kissed Butter, Soft Velvet Matte, Matte Color, Vintage Matte Color, Vivid 2, Mellow Yellow Sunshine and Luminous Color Burst.

What I am especially giddy about is that I just loaded Photoshop on my computer (the fancy one, not elements - though I still love and will use PSE). I also downloaded some cool actions for PS from here and I am excited to start playing! My poor kids...I am their paparazzi momma...
