The Hollywood Bowl Effect,as it became known, was a technique I  created many years ago.  I’ve been asked many times if I have a video tutorial showing how to create this technique, and more recently if it was available as an action.

In this video we look at recording the Hollywood bowl effect as an action.  We also look at how the image can be fully adjusted as well as saving the action.

Some of the topics covered in this video include 

  • Actions
  • Filters
  • Adjustment Layers
  • Blend modes
  • Saving Actions

The effect is easy to create  in Photoshop Elements
