CoffeeShop Web Frame It PS/PSE Action!



If you loved the CoffeeShop Color Block It, Web Rounded Corners and Web Drop-Shadow actions, then you will love CoffeeShop Web Frame It! Just like my other web actions, Web Frame-it crops and sharpens your images for the web. But it also adds a custom colored border and frame around the image.   This action works in Photoshop and Photoshop Elements.

To use the action, simply have your edited image open. The action will flatten and sharpen the image and then prompt you to adjust the border color. It is preset to white and 10px, but you can adjust the size and use the pull-down menu labeled "Canvas extension color" to adjust the color to taste. If you select "Other" you can use the eye dropper to select a color in your image as the action runs. I show how to do this with screenshots on the Color Block It post.  :-)

The second prompt frames your image. It is preset to 30px, but again you can adjust the size and color to taste.

Your image is now flattened, cropped, sharpened, and has a border and frame. Now go post your web-ready image on your blog!

I used the CoffeeShop Vintage Blush action on this image in Photoshop Elements.

I can't resist, one more dandelion photo... This is a preview of one of my new actions coming out.  It is a vintage B&W action, but in this case I turned off the B&W layer.   I also used the Web Frame It action to get this baby ready for my blog. ;-)


I have also added new designs to my Blogger blog design page.  Check it out if you are in the mood for a shiny new Blogger blog.  :-)

  14. This is fantastic.
    I've tried to create a command for this in my Fireworks program. (most of the time I can read a photoshop tutorial and figure out how to do it in Fireworks.) However, I just was not able to get the command/action to work!
    I would LOVE it if you did this action unwrapped!!!
