CoffeeShop Web Rounded Corners PS/PSE Action!



NOTE: August 24th Update! I have made a new version of this action that smooths the corners of your image BEFORE cropping, so the corners are nice and smooth, not jagged as they can be in the original action. It is a bit more work for you (you have to enter the smoothing amount because it will differ for each original image size), but I have suggested amounts in the new instructions. Your corners will be wonderfully smooth! The links below are to the new version of this action. Hope you enjoy the improved version. :-)

Wouldn't you love to be able to have an action that would automatically crop/sharpen/round corners of your image so you could post it on your blog? Well, you asked and I wrote and now you can download the CoffeeShop Web Rounded Corners PS/PSE Action.
This is the first in a series of new blog-based actions I will be posting here. I am working on a similar one that adds a drop-shadow and also one that adds a white frame around your image. I am also going to be designing more blog storyboard actions so you can quickly make up beautiful storyboards to post on your website or blog. Finally, I will also be starting a tutorial series on making your Blogger blog beautiful, including tweaking your blog template, adding backgrounds, and other goodies.

Note, this action does not automatically apply your watermark (as seen in the sample image). Unfortunately that has to be custom written for each individual watermark. This zipped download includes both a Photoshop and Photoshop Elements action, plus full instructions.

Ohhh this is very cool! :) I love round corners occasionally so this would be perfect. Is there a way to opt out of the sharpening? I already sharpen in my work flow and didnt want to add more... :)

Thanks Rita!
