Totally Rad Actions 2 – The Revenge – Version 1.2 – $159 value


TRA2 – The Revenge is the cutting-edge new action set from the creators of the beloved Totally Rad Action Mix. TRA2 is a completely new set of actions for Adobe Photoshop that work together as a system, giving you an unprecedented blend of convenience and flexibility. This action set will unlock countless possibilities for making your photos shine, from dramatic black and whites, to vintage color effects, to everyday utilities to enhance your images. TRA2 is also the perfect compliment to the original Totally Rad Action Mix, adding powerful tools to your arsenal, while working seamlessly with the tools you already know and love.

TRA2 also improves on the things that made the Totally Rad Action Mix great. By keeping even more of the actions steps in separate layers, control freaks can now tweak the look of their images even further. And the experience and feedback we’ve received on the first set has been put to good use, creating actions that are more intelligent, and that work well across an even broader range of images.

This is the perfect size for many photographers who actively shooting, since it holds a 70-200 f2.8 inside, with the hood reversed, a wide angle with the hood, and a pro-size SLR in the front expandable pocket (without a lens attached). A DSLR without a bottom battery grip can be put inside with a lens attached straight down into the bag. The bag also can be attached to a roller.
