What are Photoshop Actions?

Photoshop Actions are a series of pre-recorded editing steps that you can "play" over your image using Adobe Photoshop on your computer. It's like watching an invisible editor take over your screen for a fraction of a second, so cool! 


I have designed every step of the action commands to adapt to your image. unlike some other actions or presets that leave little room for flexibility, LSP Actions are non-destructive to your background layer and the open layers included mean you can tweak, reverse engineer and adapt if you like to suit your tastes even further.

I'm a beginner, is this suitable for me?

Absolutely! Though these actions have been designed to the highest professional standards and are indeed used by the pros, beginners find the panel is so user-friendly you can get started right away, wherever you are in your photography journey.

What is the refund policy?

Please note, this is a digital download. Once you purchase, you own and keep it for life so it cannot be returned... but equally, I'm not a monster. So. 


If within 10 days of purchase, you don't love this set or have any issues at all, just reply to your order confirmation email so we can help you out. If you can send screen shots or a shot video to show any issue you might have, this will be super helpful and means we can help faster and make sure you get the very best out of this collection. 


AND, if you still don't love these actions after we have assisted you and you initially contacted within 10 days of order, then of course, we will refund you. Our customer happiness is the most important thing to us :-)


At LSP Actions, we pride ourselves on over 20,000 ecstatic customers, which has landed us number 1 worldwide for the "Best Professional Photographic Software" award the last 4 years in a row and placed top for customer service world-wide! We have never been asked for a refund on the basis the product wasn't suitable or as described. I hope this reassures you. 

How do I watch the video tutorials?


I already use another action pack for editing cake smash (for example, newborn actions). How is this different?

Over a year in the making, this photoshop action kit is designed especially for the most perfect editing of toddler and cake smash sessions. 


This set is independent of the LSP Newborn or Portrait Photoshop Actions and is designed meticulously for the specific challenges and joys presented with a toddler photo shoot.


If you already own other LSP Actions, such as the Signature Newborn, you may notice that some of the action titles are a little similar. BUT no retouch actions are duplicated. There are only so many ways one can say "brighten up face" without becoming confusing! But the actual commands and settings differ within and are crafted to best suit toddler skin.


Though at a glance, you wouldn't think skin editing should be too different between newborn babies and toddlers, but the seasoned pros will tell you otherwise!

The heavy reds, deep jaundice and purples of a newborn are not seen in a baby 6m+. The tonal variety needed for high end and perfect editing of a toddler is somewhat different. Newborn toning actions can be heavy handed and appear green/yellow or gray on a toddler's delicate skin.


Not to mention the skin texture is entirely different: Newborns tend to have small scratches, milia (the little white bumps over the nose), neonatal cephalic pustulosis (baby acne - spots) and flaking skin of varying degrees over the wrists, ankles and body. One year olds and toddlers generally do not present with any of these typical newborn skin challenges, in fact most have beautiful translucent skin, but they do come with their own specific set of issues that needs to take a different editing approach in comparison with newborns or adults, for the best quality results.


Toddlers can have little bumps and grazes as they get mobile, orange noses from baby food, dry red patches over the skin. Eyes and noses can be a very specific red from some pre-session tears or teething. Skin can look blotchy and feather-mottled, especially over the arms and legs. Delicate toddler skin tones are a totally different tonal depth to newborn or adult skin, which you may have noticed already when editing.


PLUS


This set contains everything you will need when it comes to cake smash editing. From color matching the cake and decor, to fixing rumpled seamless backgrounds, to fairy lights, cake smash finishers, seperate black and whites, a batch editing section and SOOOO much more!


TO SUMMARIZE

When editing newborn use the Signature Newborn Photoshop Actions and use this Cake Smash Cute Photoshop Action Set for editing cake smash, first birthday, and toddler photo sessions for the best, most accurate and highest quality results. For Adults, use the LSP Portrait & Studio Vogue.

I've been let down by cheaper actions in the past, are these really worth it?

There is a reason LSP Actions was voted "Best Professional Photographic Software" the last four years in a row and is used by some of the world's best photographers to achieve stunning results. To put it simply, LSP Actions work. On all images. Exactly as they say they do. 


We are committed to setting an industry standard for the highest quality Actions and Presets available to you and have help and support available to help you get the very best out of this action set.

Can I enter the images edited with LSP Actions into competitions?

Yes! Many photographers who use the LSP Actions are finding their images are doing better in photography competitions and winning awards/

I don't shoot cake smash very often, is it worth me getting the Cake Smash Cutie Photoshop Actions?

"I'm mainly a wedding photographer, but noticed after a while my couples were contacting me about newborn shoots so I started to offer these. The newborns grew and eventually I found myself offering the occasional smash. 
, but wanted to do more pets. Every time I did though, I was always disappointed in the result. I purchased Fur Babies and went back to edit an old shoot and WOW, this was what was missing! I even managed to upsell this old gallery to the client again, including images I'd missed out before. I now shoot more pets than newborns, all thanks to Fur Babies and my clients love the images. Thank you LSP Actions!" 
— Jennifer T.

Fur Babies is owned by hundreds of professional, experienced pet photographers... but equally, many hobbyists have purchased Fur Babies and, once they realised the calibre of images they could create with this set, they have quickly gone on to launching their own pet photography biz! You can connect with lots of different photographers, all with their own story here in the LSP Actions Editing Group on Facebook.
