Make it pop free photoshop retro actions

I’ve been busy messing around in photoshop this weekend to create my own set of retro actions. I’ve called the actions set Make it pop, a cliché designers hate to hear—Yeah I went there, Sorry.

The full Make it pop set below includes 13 effects that you can let rip on your photos to give them that retro vibe.

I was mainly trying to replicated Lomo photos that I found on Google, with light leaks, vignetting, film grain, saturation and what not. I believe there is an art and beauty to oversaturated Lomography pictures—That’s what I’m trying to capture in my photoshop action.
