Thoughts from Gavin on Creative Essentials. “A good effect is not made by how over the top it is and CE draws that line at simple, creative effects. It’s been refined into a set of tools that are versatile and effective. Not complicated, not over the top. Just creative tools that work. CE sets a solid workflow foundation for the Photoshop user, but it also makes a great kit for the detail and refinement work of someone who primary edits in Lightroom. It’s also the perfect set to go side by side with my Hollywood Effects actions.” Gav.
