Today I have a brand new "Classic Storybook" Photoshop/PSE action called "Secret Garden". This action adds gorgeous color, depth, and warmth to your images and looks particularly good on outdoor portraits. I also love running it on inside baby portraits and still life. Like most of my actions, it is fully adjustable.
You can grab the first action in this series called "Pollyanna".
I wanted to thank the generous, talented photographers at Pixabay for the beautiful images I used in my examples today (girl face, girl in woods, baby).
This is my own images (Galveston Island). I ran "Secret Garden" and then added one of the gorgeous textures from the newest Flypaper Tempest Painterly set.
CoffeeShop "Secret Garden" Photoshop/PSE Action Tutorial:
Run the action and adjust the "Skin Smooth" pop-up as needed. Then then adjust the layers to taste or paint on the layer masks. I usually reduce "Brighten" and "Sweet Honey" slightly. I usually keep "Skin Smooth" turned on, even if the image is not a portrait.
I would love to see your own edits using this action on my Facebook page.
