I am so excited to post my newest Photoshop/PSE free action called “Sweet Enchantment B&W”. This action is completely customizable and turns your images B&W and applies a pretty soft-pink tint. You can adjust all of the layers, and even add some color back in to create a beautiful soft-tinted image (as seen in the poppy and rose images below).
I kept on typing “poopy” instead of “poppy”, I obviously live with boys…
In this edit I left in a little of the color, it is such a sweet vintage edit.
The beauty of this edit is you can have soft low-contrast “Matte” images or high contrast dramatic ones like this bride. Have fun editing and be sure to post your work using this action on my Facebook page. I love to see what you are doing with them.
In this example above I ran the action and adjusted the contrast as seen above. I moved the shadow slider to the right to darken the shadows and adjusted the Output Levels black slider to 29 to lower the contrast).
I think this is a lovely edit.
In this example I wanted a softly-colored image. So after running the action and adjusting the top contrast layer, I turned down the B&W Conversion layer to 75% opacity. I love this!
This is the same image with the CoffeeShop Sven 6 texture applied in Soft Light, 100% opacity.
