CoffeeShop Pretty in Pink Photoshop/PSE Action!

Today I have a new action called Pretty in Pink.  This action adds a really pretty contrast boost and pink tint and is fully adjustable to be subtle or dramatic. I used a gorgeous family photo from my reader Jessica T. in this before/after.

This is my starting image which is already perfect.  But it is always fun to add a bit of artistic enhancement to a nice, clean edit.  

This is the image after the action finished running with no adjustments.

I wanted to increase the pink effect and add some vignette, so I turned on the top vignette layer and painted out the family and set it at 39% opacity.  I put the Color Fill 2 layer at 45% and used a 50% opacity soft black brush to remove it from the family.  Finally, I put the boost layer at 70%.  This is a more dramatic edit.  I really love the background.

Here is another family photo from Jessica.  I ran Pretty in Pink on it and made a few adjustments and then added the Flypaper Tumeric texture (desaturated) from the Pastel Painterly Pack.

I hope you enjoy playing with this new action and I would love to see your before and afters at my Facebook page.
