Comment to Win 205 Premium Photoshop Actions!

UPDATE: This contest has ended. The winners are listed at the end of the post.

Our friends at have offered to give all of their current Photoshop actions to 5 lucky readers of the Vandelay Design Blog! is a new site that offers high-quality Photoshop actions for a variety of different types of photo effects.

Photoshop actions can be extremely helpful for speeding up your photo editing process, and for experimenting and getting some cool effects. currently has 14 different sets, totaling 205 individual actions. The regular price to purchase all of these actions would be $238, but you can enter to win them for free by leaving a comment on this post. Also, they are offering a launch special through the end of November. Save 50% on any purchase with the coupon code “LAUNCH”. So if you aren’t one of the lucky winners you can still get a nice discount if you are looking for some quality Photoshop actions.

One of the things that you’ll really like about the actions from is that they can be edited and customized as needed. Each action is non-destructive and leaves the original photo layer untouched, so if you don’t like the results of the action you can simply delete the layers or groups created by the action. The layers and adjustment layers created by the actions can be edited very easily, which makes them useful even if the default action doesn’t look perfect on your photo.

Here is a preview of the 14 sets that are included in this giveaway. You can see more before and after preview images by clicking on any of the links.
