When I was working full-time on the Bright Side Project with Jules, my job was to pull together all the graphics for the site which included the daily prize images. I spent what seemed like hours making poor photo's look decent on the site. I realized that most of the contributors were not photographers, but if they did slight tweaks to their images they could be that much better. I had threatened Jules with coming out with a set of Photoshop actions targeted at Etsy sellers to help them take their images to the next level. That was many moons ago and I had been side tracked multiple times and it fell by the wayside as 'Miss B. great idea 1,0001' (note: I have a bajillion 'great' ideas a day).
Lately, I have taken a huge step back from the BSP because we are currently looking for a buyer for the project. Yes, indeed! Both Miss Lindsey and I don't have the time to put into the site that it deserves, so if you are TRULY interested in possibly being the new owner please shoot us an email: hello[at] thebrightsideproject.com. With my stepping back it gave me some precious time to pick up where I left off on some of my projects. I finally finished the first set of basic actions and my Souvenir Foto School class is starting to test them out. The feedback thus far has been really positive and I am getting pretty excited about launch. I plan to make the basic action sets affordable enough for Etsy sellers to be able to purchase without guilt and hopefully we can figure out how to make them work for those with Photoshop Elements and the free, Photoshop-esque, Gimp.
If you want to be in the loop when these babies launch, put your name on the waiting list and we will let you know the second it does. Sign up to be notified of launch!
