Free Matte Pastels Actions Inspired by Masashi Wakui

Download these surreal Photoshop actions by SparkleStock. The effects were inspired by beautiful post processing style of photographer Masashi Wakui. There are three effects and the actions are compatible with Photoshop CS5 or newer.

Matte Pastels Photoshop Actions (Lite)

These Photoshop actions let you add surreal dream-like colors to your photos in just one click. The inspiration came from the works of photographer Masashi Wakui and a tutorial on Lightroom Tutorials. Unfortunately for those looking to recreate the exact Masashi Wakui effect, these actions are not reverse-engineered clones of it. Rather, they are unique effects created from scratch but share some of the same characteristics as Wakui’s photos.

How to use: Play the first action then go to your History panel (Window > History) to pick an effect.
