CoffeeShop Creamy Chocolate B&W PS/PSE Action!

Here is my latest new action, CoffeeShop Creamy Chocolate B&W. This action runs in both Photoshop and Photoshop Elements and is a personal favorite of mine. It not only adds a hint of chocolate color to your image, but it also makes everything slightly softened. All layers are completely adjustable with layer masks, including the Creamy soft layer (so that you can remove the softness from eyes or other parts of the image). This action is absolutely great for portraits.

This has nothing to do with your post but I wanted to share with you...I was asked to photograph my cousins wedding and the first thing I thought of was using your Grunge Tutorial that you had posted using the groomsmen. I'm NOT a pro, just a hobbyist, but I followed your directions and the guys were so pleased with their pictures! I wanted to encourage others to try all these fabulous ideas you've given us! Here's a link to the photos on my flickr stream:

I've also attached a link to your tutorial on the photos. I'll post them on my blog soon and attach a link there. Hope you enjoy seeing your work put to good use! (sorry for the long comment)

I absolutely love this action. I used it on a couple of photos I took over the weekend. Thanks so much.

Ooo, I think this is my new favourite!

Anonymous April 4, 2009 at 4:47 PM  

I have not been able to get this action to show in the Actions Palette of PSE 6. I installed it the same way as I did the Eye Bright and Little Perk actions and they work fine. I looked in the action folder and it appears there, but just not in the palette. I restarted my computer and that didn't help. Any suggestions?

Shalum April 7, 2009 at 2:57 AM  

i've finally learned how to install them! now .. to use--- thanks so much!

Anonymous April 10, 2009 at 2:49 PM  

To Anonymous: I had the same problem with this action and the new Bittersweet action. I just changed the name of the action and png to something that didn't include a "&" and it works great now. Hope that helps.

You're actions are awesome. Thank you. I must be slow though, because this one and any that is b&w will not turn b&w for me. That layer is on and visible, but it does nothing.... Help!
