CoffeeShop Enduring Love Photoshop/PSE Action!


Today I am posting my newest action, Enduring Love.  I love this action!  The gorgeous ( and perfect) image I used in this post is from Photography by Kelley.  The original SOOC image needed no editing, but I think Enduring Love really adds some nice light and color.

BTW, I have a B&W version of this action called Enduring Love Tinted B&W.


Here is the original SOOC image.


This is with Enduring Love (no adjustments made).


When I wrote this action I wanted to make it really fast and easy, but I also wanted it to be very customizable.  For a quick and easy edit, just adjust the opacity of the "Enduring Love" top layer to taste.  This top layer has every layer below merged into it.

If you want to customize the edit, then turn off the Enduring Love top layer and turn on all of the bottom layers.  Adjust the opacity of each layer to taste, and use the layer masks to remove or add each enhancement.


Here is another before and after on a beautiful image from Laura Sigley Photography.  I made no adjustments, just ran the action.  What I love about this action is it can be very subtle and it is completely customizable.  I do think this action works best on outdoor portraits with good lightning.

I hope you love this action and edit as much as I do.  Download the free CoffeeShop Enduring Love Photoshop/PSE action.  You can also download it here.

  7. A lot of the layers when the photo processes through the action, say that they are unavailable. Is there anyway I could fix this?

  8. Michelle, which version of Photoshop are you using? And are you starting with an image that is flattened and says "Background"?

  9. Rita, i have CS3, and yes they are flattened and are from the background layer.

    1. Michelle, Reset your photoshop preferences. Something got changed/corrupted but that is an easy fix.

  10. I have PSE 7 and am starting with a flattened image and am also having the same issue with many layers saying unavailable.... any suggestions?

  11. I am also using CS3 and having the same problems as Michelle. Same with the Enduring Love B&W action, too. Would love to figure out what the problem is, as I feel they will become my favorite actions to use. As of now, the "finished" product looks pretty bad and takes tons of tweaking to be usable. Appreciate all you do and hope to see a fix on this one soon.
