Today I finally am posting my newest free action called CoffeeShop “Dream Catcher”. This name was suggested by LENNÉ on my Facebook page. Thank you everyone for helping me name this one!
I love this type of color edit. My action applies a gorgeous cool pastel (almost painterly) tint to images. Like most of my actions, it is fully adjustable in every way so you can customize it for each of your own images. You can see some examples posted below.
CoffeeShop “Dream Catcher” Photoshop/PSE Action Tutorial:
This is what the image looks like after running the action, with no adjustments.
I turned on the “Haze 2” layer and adjusted the opacity to 32% as I wanted more of the bluish pastel effect.
In this edit I turned on “Haze” and set it at 90%. Then I opened up the “Contrast Adjustment” layer and changed the blending mode to Normal and adjust the Shadows and dark Output Levels sliders as seen above. I think this edit is so pretty and dreamy!
On this image I turned on the “White Rescue Max” (100%) and Haze (25%) layers. Then I lowered the “Contrast Adjustment” layer to 60%.
I would love to see your edits using this action on my Facebook page!
