There aren't enough hours in the day so I don't get to do much Flickring these days.

 

I still enjoy browsing streams though, even if I don't comment, and I especially enjoy checking out all the photos in my Flickr group. When it was smaller, I used to be able to comment on all new photos in the pool, but as it's grown it's not been so easy!

 

Almost all the portraits in my stream are now F&F. Sorry but too many weirdos (yes, Orkut people, I mean you).

 

I have some FREE ACTIONS (created in Photoshop CS) you can download below. If you use them, please will you add them to the group?

 

MY GROUP:

 

www.flickr.com/groups/nellynerofreeactions/

 

MY ACTIONS:

 

(These are best on totally SOOC, otherwise they will look too heavy. What I tend to do myself is edit in ACR first and then run an action on a copy of the original image, flatten it and copy and paste back on to the original and then reduce the opacity. This makes the effect more subtle without fiddling endlessly with the customisable layers.)

 

Timecapsule set

(My favourites by far.)

 

and

 

The Add-ons pack – I Fake Film & BW Chrome

(I Fake Film is my most used action - I throw it on everything.)

 

and

 

Nelly Nero Daydream Set

(17 actions which either tint, desaturate, pop or fade images.)

 

and

 

Nelly Nero Bleaching Set

(6 bleaching actions, including Porcelain, Ivory Bleach, Dirty Bleach XP, Rankin Bleacher, Colour Bleacher & Colour Boost Bleacher.)

 

and

 

Nelly Nero Outdoor Tints Action Pack

(Can be used on indoor photos, but this action pack was really created to run on outdoor photos. Can be adjusted if the effect is too strong. Includes some vintage actions.)

 

and

 

Nelly Nero Fix My Pic

[Download is on left-hand side of page, next to what looks like a small orange TV icon]

(Includes my Baby Skin Cream action, a Light Balance action, Shadow Buster, 2 skin smoothers, an eye brightener and a basic contrast action)

 

and

 

Nelly Nero Black & White Set

(About 20 black and white actions - some classic, some tinted, grungy, moody, high-key, vintage etc)

 

ACTIONS FOR ELEMENTS

 

Timecapsule set

(My favourites by far)

 

and

 

Full Elements Action Set

(There are 25 colour actions, including vintage, grunge, bleaching, tints and faded styles. There are also 8 black & white actions)

 

Terms of use: You can use them for anything at all, but please don't tweak, then repackage and sell them. They must remain free!

 

IF THE INDIVIDUAL DOWNLOAD LINKS FAIL, I NOW HAVE A BACK-UP SITE, SO THEY CAN ALSO BE DOWNLOADED HERE
