photo action applied to scrap page

I've been reading a lot about photo editing lately, and applying some photo actions to my pics before placing them on the layout. usually, after I upload a new batch of photos, I'll go through and edit them- adjusting the curves/brightness/contrast and such. Then, when I go to use them in a layout, they're ready to do whatever else I want to them. I followed Jessica Sprague's Friday Photoshop shazam by creating layers of identical pictures. I copied 3 layers, and on the top layer, applied a Screen blending mode, and an Overlay blending mode on the middle layer. I left the bottom layer the same. I adjusted the opacity of each layer to achieve the right look. Although these pictures were taken outside in the sunshine, they seemed a little dark. I had to adjust the lighting a bit. The blending modes that I applied don't seem to be as dramatic as Jessica's. But they did perk them up a little and add some interesting contrast. Try it out sometime!
