I have a Back-To-School special on my download packs (actions/presets and digital designs). They are both full of hundreds and hundreds of professional photographer-quality editing and design elements. The action pack contains many premium actions not found free on this blog and purchase of any of the packs include a download link to my favorite holiday designs. You also get free updates up to two years after your purchase and I usually update the packs weekly. Purchase of these packs help support this site so thank you!!!
I had some time to work on the computer this weekend and I ended up writing a new action, CoffeeShop “Chamomile Tea” adds beautiful warmth and light to your image and is fully adjustable. I love using it on images that are cool in tone and need to be warmed up, like photos taken in shadow or gloomy days. But it also looks beautiful on other types of images like landscapes and still life.
I wanted to thank the photographers at Unsplash for the beautiful images I used in this post. (Knees, Woman at Beach, Flower Bouquet, Holding Hands, Vase, Roses, Woman in Forest, Woman Portrait, Shells)
This action does wonders for dark studio portraits (original image).
CoffeeShop “Chamomile Tea” Photoshop/PSE Action Tutorial:
This is what the image looks like without any changes to the layers. You can adjust each layer’s opacity and/or paint on the layer mask.
I wanted to darken the edges on this image, so I clicked on the “Lighten” layer mask and used a soft low opacity black brush and and painted on the edges of the image.
Then I brought the “Bump Contrast” layer up to 50%. I think this edit turned out so beautifully.
I would love to see your own edits using this action on my Facebook page!
