New Free CoffeeShop Fall Leaves Template AND Preview of CoffeeShop Coming Attractions!



Here is a freebie template for you guys that I made tonight called CoffeeShop Fall Leaves. The color pallete and pattern (enhanced in Photoshop with brushes) are from http://www.colourlovers.com/ (a great site, check it out!). This template is 12 x 12, 300 dpi (it can be printed to 30 x 30). In a day or so I will be releasing both the template and loading action for this template (see below).





Here is a preview of my newest template, CoffeeShop In the 9's. It is 12 x 12, 300 dpi (so it can be printed up to 30 x 30), with 9 square cutouts. This template is an action so you can apply colored image borders or easily change the template color from white. I am also including a loading action to save you the time and frustration of dragging all of your images into the template and having to free transform them to fit. I will be posting both template and loading actions in the next day or so, so please come back! The actions will run in Photoshop and Photoshop Elements.

I am also working on a new action for your portrait processing. CoffeeShop PowderRoom has been my most popular action thus far, so I am going to rewrite and improve it. I am working on CoffeeShop Pretty Portrait which will combine the skin softening/eye enhancing parts of PowderRoom, but will also include some color pop, sharpening, vignette (all with layer masks) and other goodies. This action will be the only action you will have to run on your portraits, and layer masks will be included so you can mask out skin if you find the color pop or other effects too harsh. Everything will be completely adjustable and the action will run in Photoshop 7 and above and Photoshop Elements 4, 5, 6, and 7. I am really excited about this action and hope you guys enjoy it!

Have a nice weekend and come back and visit!

  10. Thanks everyone! I am so glad you guys can use this stuff. I love writing actions, but I have really enjoyed creating templates also. As of last month or so I had never made one, but they are quite addictive and I wish I had more time to make even more of them! Rita
