SLEEKLENS AUTUMN PUMPKIN GLAZE OVERLAY & ACTION COLLECTION REVIEW

I was recently asked to test out the Autumn Pumpkin Glaze Overlay and Action Set by Sleeklens.  Most of my editing workflow consists of hand editing which as some of you may know, can be very time consuming.  Given the opportunity to speed things up and also "play", I was excited to try it out!  

I will post some before and after images below.  Honestly, I could play with actions and overlays all day!  The options are endless.  Fall is such a gorgeous time of year but it can be challenging to get those gorgeous warm and bright colors captured in your images.  An action set like this can really help you get that boost your images could be missing.


The Results

Here is a before and after of a shot I took last fall.  This image was edited 100% with the Sleeklens Autumn Action set right down to skin smoothening and web sharpening.  I used a recipe mixed with 10 different actions within the set, all set to various opacities and some painted in or masked off.  I am very pleased with the final result.

This image below was NOT edited with the action workflow, but I used the leaves overlay that comes with the collection.  So fun!  The options are endless.  I used a few different overlays here and flipped one around. I also erased some leaves to get the look I wanted.

And last but not least, the rain overlay!  I love this one!  The overlay was easy to use and the results look great!

The Verdict

I really love this action set.  I was surprised with how many actions and overlays you get and for a great price!  In order to use them you need some basic working knowledge of Photoshop.  You will absolutely love this set if you are a beginner, intermediate or even a skilled Photoshop user who loves actions.  The overlays and brushes are a cinch to use and Sleeklens provides step by step instructions to help you get started.  

Here is a list of what you get with the set: 

  • 7 Bird Overlays (In PSD format with JPEG previews)
  • 20 Color Filter Overlays
  • 8 Leaves Overlays
  • 2 Leaves PS Brushes
  • 20 Light Overlays
  • 10 Rain Overlays
  • 15 Skies Overlays – including sunsets, storm, cloudy and clear sky conditions
  • Autumn Enhancing Photoshop Actions (78 Actions)

Yes, that's 78 actions on top of the overlays!  One of my favorites was the detail enhancer.  I just may incorporate this one into my everyday workflow.  

You can check out and purchase the collection ( and the many others they offer ) here.

This concludes my review of this action set!  Thanks for visiting!
