CoffeeShop Action Flashback - Golden Vintage Action!

We are still trying to get completely moved and settled in our new house.  I haven't had much energy to post because I am still unpacking and arranging, but I promise I will be back posting regularly as soon as possible.

I like to go through my older actions and "rediscover" them.  I wrote CoffeeShop Golden Vintage in April 2009, and it was one of my first actions.  I still like to use it, especially on flowers/scenery.  If you haven't tried it out, go check out the post and download it.  It is a fun little adjustable action.

  1. This action is great :)

    I understand most of the layers however what exactly am I trying to do in the "Replace Color" layer?

    Also, could you explain, or point me towards a tutorial that explains the purpose behind the "blending modes" with layers?


  2. The email update I got had a longer post then I see on the blog. Anyway... Living in seattle, I know how you feel! I hope the sun comes back to Texas sooner then it will here!!! Hope you feel better soon!

  3. I love this, thanks so much! It is the first action I have ever done! I just posted about it on my blog:

  4. Hi Rita,

    Once again, I thank you for your generosity in making and distributing these free actions to us.

    I am trying to find the tutorial you said in your Apr 9, 2009 issue for the Golden Action that you would write. Have you?

    If so, I cannot locate it and would like it.

    Thank you,
