I have had many readers email me over the years about how much they love my Sweet Bakery Glazes action set. That is a really fun action set, but unfortunately the softening "glaze" feature is not optional so I have also had quite a few requests to make a new version that does not soften images. This is a great suggestion, keep them coming!
This is one of the first action sets I wrote and it is long due for an update, so today I am posting my new version called "Sweet Bakery Hard Glazes" that adds a beautiful color tint but doesn't make a copy of your image (so annoying, why did I have it do that in the first place???), doesn't soften your image, and has a bonus Matte and Haze layer. I hope you enjoy using this new version as much as the old one.
This is a subtle action and it is completely adjustable. For my edit below I used a beautiful image found here on Pixabay.
Using the CoffeeShop "Sweet Bakery Hard Glazes" Action Set:
Run the action on your image. It will appear unchanged.
Turn on your favorite "hard glaze" layer (strawberry, soft honey, blueberry, green apple, or vanilla). In this image I turned on the Strawberry layer.
Optional: Turn on the Matte layer to lower the contrast of the shadows.
Optional: Turn on the Haze layer to create a beautiful soft and hazy image.
I hope you enjoy playing with this newest action set and I would love to see your edits using these actions on my Facebook page!
