Kubota Artistic Tools Viva La Vintage Actions Review

I had the chance to try out Kubota's Artistic Tools Viva La Vintage Action Pack this month. You can use these actions as is - just click apply and save. However, I've discovered that the most beautiful images are created by painting on an effect. I can choose to make a balloon pop and make skin creamy and softly vintage by using several different actions and painting them onto the original image.

On this image, I painted Hot Flashes onto the balloons and Vintageous to the model.

Having the option to paint on the photo using Kubota Tools is really nice, as you don't need to mask, invert the mask and then paint the effect back in. I created a duplicate layer as soon as I pulled the image into Photoshop and then just painted directly onto the duplicate layer to create the perfect look.

On this one, I used Creme Brulee for the background, used Edge It to create a slight vignette and painted Vintageous onto my lovely model.


Want to try Kubota out for yourself? The Dashboard and 50 actions is completely free. Viva La Vintage, which I was able to use for 30 days to review, is currently $109 and includes 25 nice vintage actions.
