CoffeeShop Attic Vintage - A Free PS/PSE Action!



You have already seen the CoffeeShop Attic Vintage Tutorial , and now you can download the free CoffeeShop Attic Vintage PS/PSE Action! You can use any "vintage" texture with this action, but two of my favorites are Paul Grand's Scratches Inverted Texture and Heavy Paper from ShadowHouse Creations.

CoffeeShop Attic Vintage Action Instructions

1.  Make sure the only image open is the image you wish to enhance.  Close everything else.
2.  Start the action. The action will run on a duplicate of your original so you can compare the before/after.
3.  Adjust the feather for the vignette.
4.  Open the vintage texture of choice when prompted.   The action will apply the texture to your image and you adjust it to fit.  Unclick the Constrain Proportions on top in PSE or click on the little chain between W and H in Photoshop if you need to adjust the proportions of the texture to make it fit.  If you can't see the drag bars click on Ctrl-0 (zero) to zoom out, and to zoom back in click on Ctrl-0 again.
5.  The action will finish running and you can adjust the layer opacities to taste.
