CoffeeShop Little Perk PS/PSE Action!



Sometimes you want a quick and easy pick-me-up for images that appear dull. The CoffeeShop Little Perk is a little action (with a lot going on "behind the scenes") that gives your image an adjustable boost of color, contrast and sharpening. The Little Perk layer adds a boost of color and contrast and the Sharpen layer sharpens :-), you just adjust the opacity of each layer to taste (preset to 50%). Both Little Perk and Sharpen have layer masks so you can use a low opacity soft black brush to "paint" out the effects if necessary.

This is a nifty little action that should work on all of your images. I use this one all of the time in my workflow when I just want a great little boost and don't want to mess with much. And this action works in both Photoshop and Photoshop Elements!

  7. Thanks so much! Most of the photos from my camera are pretty flat straight out of the camera, and I spend more time bumping contrast and color... this will be a lifesaver! Thank you!

  20. Love color pop and use it all the time, but not having luck in PSE 5.0 with some of these, this one included. "Layer by copy not available" comes up a few times, and basically, by the end, you just end up with what you started with. I wish they did!
