Velvia Action

By popular request Im posting a direct link to Michael Soo’s software page.
Michael has done a good job to make a Photoshop action to replicate the look of a Velvia image (a particular kind of saturation).
For photographers used to Velvia the colour of digital capture can seem a little pale (if more accurate!). This action can also be used on film scans to perk them up a little.
For my clients I edit the action a little to set the opacity of the Velvia layer and leave the opacity control open ready to fine tune. For myself I find the blue’s go a little too cyan so I correct this by cycling the blue hue towards magenta a little.
