CoffeeShop Vignette Free Action!

Click here to download the free action!




Here it is, the free CoffeeShop Vignette action! This action applies a "burned" edge to your image. It is very simple, fast, and completely adjustable. It works in Photoshop 7 and all versions of CS AND Photoshop Elements 6.0. If you want to do it by hand, please see my CoffeeShop Vignette tutorial .
Keep an eye out for my next CoffeeShop free action and tutorial on rounded edges, coming in the next few days!

  15. Thanks so much everyone!!! I am so glad you are enjoying this action. I will have the rounded corner one out hopefully this weekend, along with the vignette tutorial.

    I think this has some issues in PSE5, but I will try to figure out if I can rewrite it to work in that program.

  16. I've downloaded this and installed it according to the directions (I have PSE 4.0), but it still isn't showing up in my effect window, and none of my other effects, framers, etc. are either! Do you know what i might have done wrong, or what I need to do? Thanks for your time in advance!

  22. Hi Rita, thank you so much for your wonderful generosity. It's people like you who make the Internet great. :)

    I use some of your other actions like Barista and Powder Room too, but even though they can also be used to do a vignette, I love the one-click simplicity of this one.

    One small question though - if I'm using this Vignette action with those more complex actions, does it matter which layer is selected when I run the Vignette? For example, in Barista, starting from the bottom there are Background, Sharpen and Contrast layers, then the adjustment layers like Levels and so on. Should I just select Background before making the Vignette?

  25. The download link seems to be working, so please try again! And this action should be run on a flattened image. So I do my other actions, flatten, and then do this as a final step.
