Coffee With Morgan: Free Levels Pop and Eye Love Sparkle Actions!

I ♥ my levels adjustment and I use this one on nearly every image I edit.

For this image SOOC
 I used my levels adjustment only
REALLY that was it!
It makes that big of a difference.

You can download my Levels work action here.

Of course I also used my Eye Love Sparkle action (download for free here!) for his gorgeous eyes and finished editing for the final product.

Meet Morgan! I am from a small town in southern Texas, but now live in central Texas, Fort Hood/Killeen area to be more specific. I am a stay-at-home mom and do photography in my spare time. I am married to a wonderful man that I was lucky enough to meet and be able to spend my life with. We have two beautiful children, Payton 4 years old & Amelia 1 year old. The thing I love the most about photography is that you can take an intangible moment in time and make it last forever. I don't have any formal training, I just learn from experimentation and research.


  1. Thanks! I keep getting in error for the eye sparkle action that it is not available on any server.

  3. Oh! I think I LOVE Morgan. She is just the type of photographer I have been trying to become. :D

    I just wish she lived closer to INDIANA!!

    I am now following her.. thanks so much for featuring her and her FREE action!!!!

  4. I'm getting the error message, too.

    Thanks for the free actions!!!!!!!

  5. Awesome! Thank you, Morgan, for a wonderful free resource for PSE users.

  6. Thanks for the FREE action! When I try to use mine, it says "Make" command not available and loads up a few other items, but there is no white or black mask. Any advice

  7. Awesome, Thank you very much.

  8. Thank you so much for this post. I want to let you know that I posted a link to your blog in CBH Digital Scrapbooking Freebies, under the Page 4 post on Aug. 18, 2010. Thanks again.

  9. Thanks for sharing!

  10. Thanks so much. Just found you site and am very new to PSE.

  12. Thank you!!!!! Your actions are making me look like a rock star photographer!!! I"m really just a rookie who likes to read blogs!!!

  13. I can't get this to work
    layer 1 is not currently available & mask channel of layer oh so shiny is currently not available
    so what's going on
    any tutorial on this action

  14. Make sure your image has been flattened and the layer is named "background"

  15. ok got it thanks so much

  16. Need some help...is there a tutorial on these actions? Thanks!

  17. The actions are terrific, thank you! Your final editing really made the colors in the photo very fresh. Would you mind sharing what else was done? It looks great, and it's something I would really like to achieve with my family photos.

  18. After applying action layers show both 'Oh so shiny' and 'brighten me' up layers, but on flattening image, there is no visible change.
    Whay am I doing wrong?

  19. I have applied, but I'm thinking there is something else I'm supposed to do because nothing is changing....Please?
