CoffeeShop Vintage Action & Kpauli Vintage Frame Templates!

Here is the newest CoffeeShop free action, CoffeeShop Vintage. This action will make your color or B&W images look "vintage". The layers are customizable so you can adjust the tint amount or apply a muted color. There is a also a layer where you can burn in a custom vignette or lighten (dodge) areas that you find too dark. This is one of my favorite actions because it is so fast and you get such dramatic results. It works great on portraits, landscapes, flowers, etc. I want to use this action on everything!

Click on the image below to download the free action or click HERE!



Now once you have your vintage image you might want to put it into a vintage frame. Here is a huge pack of zipped .psd vintage frame templates for you to enjoy! They are all from Kpauli on Flickr. She has generously let me make her frames into templates and share them with you here. They are just gorgeous! And please check out her photostream on Flickr to see other great frames,textures, and photos. She is a very talented photographer and incredibly nice!

To use these templates, just unzip the folder and open the frame template you wish to use. Then open your photo you wish to put in the frame and run the CoffeeShop Vintage on it. Adjust layers, flatten, and drag your image to the frame template file, putting your image UNDER the frame layer. Then free transform your image to fit in the cutout. It is that easy!




Here is an example of one of the frames with my little niece processed with CoffeeShop Vintage.

  35. So...I am maybe a little ambitious... I am a fairly new blogger, just found your blog and I love all your tutorials and the frames!

    But...I wonder if there is even a basic, basic how-to? Cuz i just got Photoshop elements when I started blogging and so don't know some of the terms.

    Thankfully, my daughter won a blog design to get me started. I am slow and surprise myself when I get something done the way I intended haha

    So. how do I get your vintage frame template Pack? And do I download it to a file for future use?

    ....ohhh...I may be here awhile :o)

    Blessings & Aloha!
    (if you get a chance, I'd love you to take a peek at my blog and let me know what you think.) and if you do, please leave a comment so I know that you were there.

    I would love to know how to add a fade in box in my sidebar to put awards in, to free up some space.

    And my photos currently have the double outlines ...can that be removed? Yikes! one last question... do you show how a photo can be done to look like it is floating on your blog with a shadow beneath it?

  37. sorry I'm new to downloading from your site. I've installed the vintage action on my computer. I have PS3. How do I get it to work? I see where it has saved the folder deep in my computer. Can you give me directions to make this work? I'm a member of Texas chicks.
