Photoshop Lomography Photo Action

I am always looking for nice effects to give to my photos.

The “Lomo” effect is one of them.

From Wikipedia: Lomography is a commercial trademark of Lomographische AG, Austria for products and services related to photography. The name is licensed from a former state-run optics company LOMO PLC in St. Petersburg, Russia. The 35 mm LOMO LC-A camera employed an unusual lens which produced large amounts of distortion at the edges of the image whilst keeping the center sharp, and was promoted by businessmen from Austria with international gallery shows.

Lomography emphasizes casual, snapshot photography. Accidents such as over-saturated colors, lens artifacts, and exposure defects are rehabilitated to produce swirly, abstract effects — a trait emphasized by practitioners. Others use the technique to document everyday life, because the small camera size and ability to shoot in low light encourages candid photography, photo reportage and photo vérité.

The lens effect (although perhaps not the philosophy) can be partially emulated in photo-editing programs, such as Gimp or Photoshop.

Why not creating an action that to automatically emulate Lomography? Here it is!!!

I divided the action into two parts: the first one with just saturation/brightness/contrast adjustments, and the second one with edge blurring.

Before

Before Lomography

after saturation/brightness/contrast adjustments

Lomography in progress

final result

After Lomography

Download the action

If you use this action and are satisfied of the result, please tell me where to find your before/after photos to add them to my example page, and help me with your feedback.

This is a photo sent me by Tim Stet (www.timstet.nl) using my lomography action

    F***in’ Awesome Man!! Just Lomo-ed a pic it looks real cool. This effect makes it look so damn agressive. I’m gonna do it on all my pics.

    Thanks for this. Thanks a lot, mate. Will post a link when I’m done and uploaded them all.

    I am a Photoshop newbie. And there’s this dialog box that comes before the last one. What can I do about it?

    THE COMMAND “LENS BLUR” IS NOT CURRENTLY AVAILABLE.

    Is this an error? Am I missing some filter/effect?

  6. Emanuele Feronato

    on July 27, 2006 at 1:56 pm

    I am happy you enjoyed it.
    Why don’t you send me a pic or two?

    About lens blur, I am afraid it’s only available on CS and higher.
    Simply skip it or replace with gaussian blur.
    Let me know what are you doing.

    Hi,

    I tried on Mac Os X and it works great.
    Congratulations…. and Thanks.

    Some of your actions are in working here in brazil now….

    on August 19, 2006 at 12:52 pm

    Hello there,

    I am a photographer that for work, practically always have to use a digital camera.
    I have difficulty with creating an image in post-process to create an attractive atmosphere as the camera itself creates to clean of an image.
    After searching the net for a day i downloaded loads of filters, plugins, actions and editorials about this.
    Well, I just mail you to say that your ‘triqui lomo’ action is superb!
    It’s a heavy thing off course, and therefor not suitable for many images, but it has definately created the effect I wanted for some.
    I attached a photo, to show you an example of ‘our’ work. (I am now working on a serie wich is even better with your action, but this is still in progress)

    So.. once again, thancks for making this action available, really appreciate it!

    Kind regards,

    Tim Stet
    http://www.timstet.nl

    ps. It did make me feel that, for me, there is still a lot to learn about PS, just when I thought that I was becomming quite good…

    on August 19, 2006 at 2:54 pm

    Hey Emanuele. Remember me, comment #4 and #5. A’right. So I just worked your great Lomo effect on some pics and here’s the result man.

    I’ve uploaded about 13 pics in a Flickr set – Lomo-dified. Do enjoy, it’s not much just a newbie’s clicks.

    I used this effect with PS CS on Mac OSX and it worked beautifully. I had never heard of Lomo until I started working for a magazine in China called Lomo Life. This is such a nice effect, very striking. Link to a picture that’s been Lomo’d- http://img223.imageshack.us/img223/7830/img0584lomopa7.jpg

  20. Aurock

    on December 15, 2006 at 12:45 am

    I got it to work! And it is pretty cool, though I think the actio works much better with light-colored objects/people than darker ones. And this is from a darker-skinned person’s perspective. Not disimilar from when I was in film school, changing exposures for different complexions. So I had to make some alterations. But yeah, thanks for the Action. Peace.

    Hey there —

    I love the photo of the yellow car and what you did with it using Photoshop. I have “Photoshop Elements 4.0″ — will it work on that? I’ve saved the action/script to my PC, and I tried to open it with Adobe (right click, open with, Photoshop), but nothing’s happening. I’m a complete novice, so I’m guessing I’m doing it incorrectly. Could you please walk me through the steps? Many thanks.

I’ve never really used actions before, pretty sad considering I’ve played with Photoshop on and off for a few years now.

They all turned out kinda neat because the original photo was a little bit distorted and dreamy to begin with. […]

Anyway, your action works great I can’t use the Blur lens because I have an older version of PS but I still like the effect anyway. Maybe you can make one for PS7 users also. Again Much thanks.

    Running CS3. Tried the action, and it doesn’t seem to be applying the blur. Color adjustments are defintely made.

    I developed a script for the GIMP to emulate the Lomo effect. Although it doesn’t achieve a complete effect, it’s fast and gives a very nice result. Follow my link and give it a try. GIMP is available for both Linux and Windows. Comments welcome!

    hi! thanks for the wonderful action! as im using ps7, i replaced lens blur with gaussian blur. im not sure if i did it right since im new at ps, but the gaussian blur created smudges and grey patches on my photo instead. guess i’d just go without the blurring. thanks once again!

    Oh, btw, to the people confused about HOW TO USE ACTIONS, I too was clueless, but after googling about it, here’s how u do it:

    1.) Unzip the “Triquilomo.zip” file.

    2.) Double click/OPEN the “Triqui Lomo.atn” file. (this should open/bring up your Adobe Photoshop editing program)

    3.) Bring up your HISTORY window in Adobe PS.

    4.) Click on the ACTIONS tab. (a folder named “Triqui Lomo” should appear below the Default Actions folder)

    5.) Open your photo, or if you already have your photo opened, just click on “lomo” right below Triqui Lomo and click the PLAY icon in the same window. (play icon should be located between the RECORD button & a little folder button on the bottom of the window)

    6.) Presto!

    Enjoy! :-)

    Thanks for sharing, I really like it. But when I closed photoshop and want to use it again, there’s a box showed that I can not use this action again. Can I use it for one time only, before I closed photoshop?
