Instructions: Complete the HDR, convert to 8bit, leave the shot with very low contrast, but with lots of detail, then run the action, then let me see the results
There are 15 actions in total
The End of the Day set (red dots) is prefered for outside pictures.
The Dreary (the ones with green dots) can be used for anything.
Vintage set (white dots) look different on different pictures (as with all of them, but they vary more than usual).
And the B&W set (yellow dots) can be a bit bright for some photos…
