No Friday Photo Bliss shot this week...
We are all trying to recover from mono and I still don't have the energy to work on the computer, but luckily I had this action finished and ready to go. I will write up the tutorial when I feel up to it. :-) I have a series of B&W actions I will be posting in the next weeks. I also have a great little giveaway planned in the next day or two. Thank you so much for all of you kind comments and generous donations during these trying times. They really do help!
CoffeeShop Vanilla B&W is a very practical "does it all" B&W action. It turns your image a nice vanilla B&W (you can turn off the vanilla tint if you want for a classic B&W) and also gives your image a slight contrast boost and has an optional sharpen layer. You can see all of the layers below.
Adjust the opacity of the Vanilla Tint layer to taste. The Sharpen layer is optional and will not be turned on after running this action. If you need to sharpen your image, click on the little box to the left of the Sharpen layer to turn on the little eye (as seen above). Then adjust the opacity of that layer. You can lower the opacity of the Contrast Boost layer if needed.
Hope you enjoy this little action! It is one of my favorite B&W conversion action and I use it all of the time.

Like most of my actions, this will run in PSE6 - PSE8 and all versions of Photoshop CS. For complete info on installing all of my actions, click here! Post questions (after doing a search) at my CoffeeShop Flickr Group.
