30 Matte Photoshop Actions

Create a beautifully dark and moody feel to your photos with our matte Photoshop actions.

A matte “effect” is a classic, nostalgic style that reduces contrast for the desired effect. It washes out the colors and creates a flat look. This is similar to printing on matte paper. However, these matte Photoshop actions offer a variety of options to help you fulfill your creative vision.

Precise Control

All of our Photoshop actions apply edits that are non-destructive.  In other words, they don’t damage the original file!

You can easily remove (delete or turn-off) or adjust the edits for your personal preference.


Well, any edits applied are done on individual layers. This gives you the freedom to adjust for best results… for YOUR photos.

Any Photoshop actions you apply are just that… “edits”. Edits that were saved as an action (for later use) were done based on the creative vision of the person doing the edits AND the photo they were applying them too.

Photos (and their histograms) are like snowflakes. No two are alike!

So, it makes sense that an action made for one photo may not be perfect for another.

Sometimes you need to make adjustments until you’re happy with the results. Which is super-duper easy to do!

If you’re new to Photoshop I’ll show you how to adjust any edits to get the results you want.

If you have some experience in Photoshop then you can use any of these fall Photoshop actions as a starting point for your creative vision.

Classic Edits

A lot of the included matte Photoshop actions come with “classic” edits. These types of edits are more natural in nature. However, since these are matte actions the dark and/or moody effect will still be applied.

Just like with any of our Photoshop actions you can easily adjust them to your liking. And you could even save your adjustments as your own personal matte Photoshop action.

Perfect when you’re shooting under the same conditions and want consistent matte type edits.

Matte Finish

All 30 of the matte Photoshop actions, from this collection, will apply the “matte” effect to your photos.

The secret to this type of edit is done with the Tone Curve. If you’re new to Photoshop and/or don’t know how to use the Tone Curve, no worries. I’ll show you how to adjust the matte finish for your personal preference!

Vintage Edits

Another popular type of edit is one that has an old-school or vintage look.  Varying techniques are used to create this type of look.
