Retouching perfected

Alchemist will save experienced Photoshop users countless hours, but it’s also great for photographers who use Lightroom or other RAW processing and are reluctant to go into Photoshop. It brings simple, deep retouching that picks up where Lightroom leaves off. No matter what you shoot or how you edit, Alchemist 2 has your back.

Years ago, it all started here at Seim Effects with our Hollywood Effects and Creative Essentials actions. They were loved by photographers all around the world, and then Alchemist took those ideas and made them better, faster and easier. Gone are the days of flattening an image to add a new look. Alchemist 2 takes that even higher. We took the best of our previous collection and made them better with superior effects and more retouching tools that make advanced edits easier than you ever thought possible.

This collection was years in the making. We kept coming back, working on new tools, tinkering for a new approach on actions that had the smooth feel of the Lightroom workflow and the power and pixel control that Photoshop offered. We realized that good tools are not enough. They have to be fluid. Most actions have to start from flat images, or throw away layers in the process. Alchemist 2 improved from version 1’s idea of truly stackable actions. Move to the top of the stack and run any Alchemist 2 tool, and let the magic begin.




I love your actions.

Ready to get rid of all other actions. They just seem in the way!

Nice work!

Gavin Very nicely done. I am a stickler when it comes to PS actions and as many of us know most are junk. But these are great. Nice work man. Love it. Will be writing about these soon.

I have the actions and they are sensational. Every product that I have purchased from you from workshops, actions, and presets have been top flight! Sorry you have to deal with narcissistic pseudointellectuals who complain about your products when they have never used them.

Gavin, these are wonderful. I was so impressed with Lumist that I had to get Alchemist too. I use both sets every time I work in Photoshop. They make good images even better. I'm amazed at what these sets can do. Recently I used the Pura skin brush to take some extra wrinkles out of clothing. Works great on everything! Alchemy eyes and the tooth brush also have many interesting uses. These are fantastic tools!
