CoffeeShop 2 Minute Miracle Plus Photoshop/PSE Action!

Bethany wrote me on my Facebook page and request a new version of 2 Minute Miracle with the levels adjustment and redness removal layer from Perfect Portrait.  Of course I was excited to oblige since I am always looking for new things to post on this blog that people actually need.  :-)

The beautiful image I used in this ad was photographed and donated by Caryn Prouty.

CoffeeShop 2 Minute Miracle Plus is the exact same action as 2 Minute Miracle, but with an additional two steps added.  There is a levels adjustment layer that allows you to adjust the color/contrast on the fly and there is also a redness removal layer where you can paint off skin redness with ease.  This action is perfect for those red-tinted skin baby images.

Here is a before/after from Beverley.

To use this action please read the tutorial on the 2 Minute Miracle original action and also the additional tips below.

When you start the action, a levels adjustment layer box will pop up and you can adjust color and contrast.  After the action finishes running you will see 6 new layers over your background.

Paint over the layer masks and adjust each layer's opacity to edit your image.

I hope this action will be a valuable additional to your Photoshop/PSE toolbox!
