Explore our set of amazing matte Photoshop actions, that allow you to create a popular look with minimal effort. The crushed blacks and shadows gives your image a slightly faded look.
What is a Matte Effect?
A matte effect comes from raising the black levels, so the image intentionally looks a bit flat in the shadow areas. It gives your images a distinctly cool/casual look often used on social media platforms like Facebook and Instagram. Some newer web-based editorial media sites also prefer this look.

Which Photos Benefits from Using a Matte Effect?
Running a matte effect Photoshop action will generally look great on most images, as long as you don’t intend to print them.
The matte effect crushes the black tonality by intention. However, even though this looks great on your website or your social media channels this doesn’t work well with printed photos. These are not matte finish photoshop actions, where you emulate the paper type when printing. If you want a matte finish, when printing, the best option is to choose that paper type.
You can use the matte Photoshop actions for both candid shots, portraits as well as for landscape and nature photos.
Our Photoshop actions for photographers bundle includes both matte color and matte black and white Photoshop actions. The matte effect looks particularly great on black and white photos.
