Cinematic FX for Photoshop

Simulate the look of cinematic effects used in movies and TV series. This set of 25 Photoshop action contains 19 cinematic looks and 6 tonal adjustments. Many of these effects were created by sampling and comparing before/after photos of movies such as “300”, “Skyfall”, “Life of Pi”, “Alice in Wonderland”, “Matrix”, and more!


  • Snapshot Prerendering
    Play one action and all the effects will be generated for you! Using Photoshop’s snapshots feature, you can switch between the effects instantly without running another action.
  • Lightning Fast
    By minimizing the layers and sticking to nondestructive layers, these actions run FAST. There’s no layer merging, raster adjustments, filters, etc.
  • Professional Results
    Because these actions use RGB curves to change the color and contrast, they give you the maximum image quality, dynamic range, and consistent results with any photo. All the effects are created using nondestructive layers – no raster layers!
  • Works with Video
    Photoshop CS6 has some amazing video editing capabilities and you can use these effects in your video. Simply open your video file and run the actions. Using the Snapshot Prerendering feature, you can preview the effect as the video is being played (See video for demo)!
