CoffeeShop Golden Vintage PS/PSE Action!

Here is my newest free Photoshop and Photoshop Elements action, CoffeeShop Golden Vintage. I was playing around trying to get a golden color effect that was slightly washed out and came up with this action. I personally love this enhancement and find it also looks beautiful on landscape and flower images.

After the action runs you can adjust the opacity of the Vintage and Darken layers (both have layer masks so you can mask out either effect on parts of your image). There is also a automatic vignette layer. Try toggling the blending mode from Soft Light to Overlay to Multiply and adjusting the opacity of that layer to get the effect that works best for your image. This action is very adjustable so you can get your own unique look. It even looks great on B&W images:

I will be writing this up as a tutorial and posting it later for those of you who have Photoshop Elements and want to see exactly what I did, step-by-step.
