Captain Kimo Photoshop Action for HDR Images

One of my original HDR editing breakthroughs, this Photoshop action automates a polished, stylized effect for tone mapped photos. Despite being an earlier preset, it remains an excellent tool for streamlining editing.

Running the action applies a combination of adjustments that enhance HDRs with rich vibrance, refined contrast and boosted luminosity. Imagery pops with color while maintaining a natural, eye-pleasing quality.

Built to harness the power of Topaz plugins, it leverages tools like Topaz Adjust to infuse photos with depth and clarity. For those without Topaz, a similar alternative action is included.

Compatible with both Photoshop and Photoshop Elements, this preset saves hours of tedious editing time. Give your HDR portfolio visual impact with just one click!
