Free Action for NILMDTS Photographers
“The Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep Foundation gently provides a helping hand and a healing heart. For families overcome by grief and pain, the idea of photographing their baby may not immediately occur to them. Offering gentle and beautiful photography services in a compassionate and sensitive manner is the heart of this organization. The soft, gentle heirloom photographs of these beautiful babies are an important part of the healing process. They allow families to honor and cherish their babies, and share the spirits of their lives.”

Design House is proud to help the wonderful volunteer photographers of the NILMDTS foundation with a simple, easy-to-use post-processing action. The action will quickly set up your images with:
* a black and white conversion
* a “warm” filter
* a “cool” filter
* an adjustable oval vignette
* an adjustable rectangular vignette,
* and a contrast adjustment layer
Each part of the action is contained in its own group folder and is initially hidden after the action is completed. You simply turn on the portions you want to use in each image, and there is no damage to your original image. Every part of this action can be used as is, or you can make quick, easy adjustments to each part.
This is the original image captured by Pat Tahan (thank you, Pat for allowing me to use your beautiful image).
After the action runs, this is how your layers palette in Photoshop will look.
This is a version of the image with the BW conversion, the Warm Filter, the Curve Adjustment, and the Rectangular Vignette turned on.
This is a version of the image after the BW conversion, the Cool filter, the Curves Adjustement, and the Oval Vignette are turned on.
