I’ll be giving a small acoustic concert for my friends at the local pub soon. So, the news about the contest, have gladded me. I`ve decided to combine these 2 events and to make a small animated gif-invitation to my concert, using two wonderful Photoshop Actions: Double Light Photoshop Action by Eugene-design & Animated Fire Embers & Sparks Photoshop Action by Artoriusus

The actions looks amazing.
Let’s do it!!!



This item here, seems to have a combination of actions, sparks and energy, but the link is only for sparks so… Do the participants need to have the sparks plugin only so “it counts”, or can they use energy as well ?

Also, you mention JPEGS, i guess gifs count as well since this plugin exists in the list ?

Thanks in advance, good luck to all!


Good competition!

Great contest to everyone, I’m in!

Hi @scottwills, i think

“Post before and after JPG images…”

should be

“Post before and after JPG or GIF images to the image in this thread.”

As stated by @blerc :slight_smile:

We would like also to replace the preview image on the promo page, because off banner created with defects.
We made files for previews to your sizes, add to the letter.
Our action is an animated, it is desirable to change the banner for gif-file.

Thank you in advance.
Good luck with sales everyone!


Hi guys, great contest! A nice break from music for me as a Audiojungle author :slight_smile:

Here’s my submission! It’s a picture I took of my friend and Dutch professional model Jade Engels and my car (a BMW E90 M3), taken with a Nikon D7200.

Besides some basic manual retouching I used Sevenstyles Glory Photoshop Action to easily change the background, but without changing the subject too much. I also used the Glory action for some color toning as it includes some great color presets!

I absolutely love Sevenstyles actions and have used them in many of my images. They’re easy to use, come with great instructions (video tutorials by Sevenstyles himself) and have a huge visual impact.

Well, I hope you like this image! If I should win something I will share it with Jade, the model in this picture.

Thanks guys and good luck to all!


Hi @blerc! Yes, GIFs are acceptable too seeing as one can create animated images from some of the actions. Instructions updated, thanks for mentioning! :slight_smile:

One more from me, this time using the Gif Animated Fog Photoshop Action, however I choose to use a static image.

This is the before and after of a picture of my car again. I manually created a dark moody atmosphere for it, but the fog action really impressed me by creating these natural fog effects in just a few minutes. I do a lot of automotive photography and editing and I can really see myself using this action a lot in the near future!


Here’s my submission!


I do very excited to this contest, so I use the photo of my lovely baby boy to edited. This photo taken when he 6 months old and now he’s 7 months old. For me, this image has become an amazing picture because I made it with full of love and happiness. This also can be the very precious album memories of my kid that he can see when he grows up later.
I use Ultimatum - Digital Art Photoshop Action, because it has an unique and creative effects, very highly detailed result and the important thing is very easy to edit.

Thank you and good luck everyone!
