What photographers are saying about Alchemist...


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.

The Best

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

Sam Collins


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.

I use them on almost everything

I use Alchemist actions on almost ALL beauty retouches. No need to flatten layers - they are stackable and non destructive.

Great Workflow

Never mind the trolls. I have purchased the Seim Alchemist actions and think they are a great addition to my arsenal. I use Lr a lot, but when I want to finish something as a featured piece I'll go to PS and Alchemist is great. You can stack them without having to merge and flatten layers. Super non - destructive work flow.

Really Nice

I finally broke down and bought a package. I like them, I'm new to using actions, but I went through them one by one and found some favorites already. They're really nice.

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!

Alchemist is amazing. Just using it for the first time on some headshots for a client.

More advanced Photoshop retouching using editing Alchemy

Alchemist will save any Photoshop users countless hours because it creates a simple, deep retouching approach that picks up where Lightroom and RAW apps stop No matter what you shoot or how you edit, Alchemist 2 has your back.

Years ago, it all started here at Seim Effects with my Hollywood Effects and Creative Essentials actions. They were loved by photographers. So I took those ideas and made them better with Alchemist. 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.

I 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 every aspect of the edit and takes it even beyond the plug-in with truly stackable actions. Let the magic begin.

Fast, retouching: Raw process is great, but you know that once you finish your RAW process, a great pixel edit is the best way to finish the job. Alchemist 2 makes it easy. It takes the guess work and wasted time out of it, allowing to you quickly apply finishing effects, glows, color and details vertically and non-destructively.

Control Everything: Brushes, retouching. color overlays and details are usually a massive project for photographers. Alchemist 2 makes it really easy with a pile of game-changing building blocks that give you the mood you need fast. You can add rays of sunlight, green to the foliage or golden beauty to sunsets. Done!

One Click WOW: Epic one click effects that started in our action packs over a decade ago. Now in Alchemist 2 one clicks from portrait glows to landscape color enhancers and dozens of amazing effects are a click away. Apply a single great look, use it as is or mix the instantly created layers for truly endless combinations in your own style.

Alchemist 2 Hands on Video.

What makes Seim products different?

I'm Gavin Seim and I started studying photography in 1997.

As digital arrived, I went all in. I got to study with masters like Ken Whitmire. In 2009 I founded the Pro Photo Show podcast. I started promoting tone-focused editing, then I started developing presets, Styles, Photoshop Actions and photo courses to make our photography better.

20+ years in the trenches earned me a Masters (M.Photog) from PPA. I've been featured, won a few awards and now I live in Mexico exploring the magical light of the South while creating new tools and searching for shadows.

Everything here is lovingly crafted by a photographer, not a marketing agency! You're rightly skeptical on online photography things. That's why all sales are NOT FINAL here. I guarantee every one of my tools and workshops 100% with my 31 day IRON Guarantee!
