Vintage Photoshop Actions For Creative Artists

Art is subjective. So they say. My personal style is different from most. I like an old school feel for some of my artwork. Maybe it’s due to my experience with shooting with film.

This collection of vintage Photoshop actions were inspired by both famous artists (like the “Monet” preset shown above) of the past and my own personal creative vision.

So, what kind of edits will these vintage Photoshop actions provide? Well, I like the look of grain (film days). Plus, I also like the old-school faded look (matte finish). Both of which have been masterly crafted into 36 vintage Photoshop action variations.

Oh, and you can customize the edits too! I’ll show you how.

As far as the inspiration of famous artists from yesteryear you’ll find some artsy, painterly type of Photoshop actions too.

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.

How?

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 vintage Photoshop actions as a starting point for your creative vision.

Matte Finish

Some of the vintage Photoshop actions include a matte finish. A matte finish is one in which the image is flat or low in contrast. This adds to the vintage look.

The secret to this type of effect is done with the “tone curve”. No worries if you’ve never used the tone curve. I’ll show you how to adjust the matte finish (with the tone curve) for your personal preference.

Vintage Style

If you’re looking for an editing style that gives you a look and feel from the free-spirited days from the past then look no further.

Vintage edits are popular among photographers, bloggers, and instagrammers.

Now you too can have this look with our vintage Lightroom presets.

How did I create these vintage Photoshop actions? First, I studied some famous artists from the past. Like Monet (see the edit at the top of this page).

Then, I studied photos from the late 1800s all the way up to the 1980s.

I used both as inspiration for this collection of vintage Photoshop actions.

Which resulted in 36 creative types of edits that will give your photos that vintage look and feel.

Everything from Monet’s style, to watercolor type effects, canvas effects, grainy film effects and much more.
