CoffeeShop Hot Cocoa 2 PS/PSE Action!

I have rewritten and improved the original CoffeeShop Hot Cocoa action. Now the action runs in Photoshop AND Photoshop Elements and the hot cocoa effect is completely adjustable and includes a layer mask so that you can mask out the effect on skin/eyes/etc. I even added a little contrast/brightness "pop" layer to perk it up a bit, but you can adjust the opacity of this layer to taste and even turn it off if you don't want it.

I came upon your site accidentally, looking for help with pse actions. You are a godsend! I am new to Photoshop Elements, and so far I really like it. I've loved photography for years, but you and PSE are an amazing combo. You have the exact effects that I am looking for, and that are so popular nowadays. I have bookmarked your site, you are the best. Thank you Thank you Thank You!!!

I am a few years late since you uploaded this particular action (Hot Cocoa 2) but I must say bravo! Because this action is simply my Favorite!!!! It's so luscious and soft... I can't find the words. It looks particularly yummy on horse portraits! An example here- Copy and paste:
I did add a gradient map of medium brown to off-white with blend mode of overlay but that just helped bring out the highlights and add contrast. Thank you for this action. It's what I've been waiting for!
