CoffeeShop Glorious Light PSE/Photoshop Action!

If you enjoyed my post on the Glorious Light edit, but wanted to save some time by using an action, here it is!  The CoffeeShop Glorious Light action adds a wonderful warm glow to your image and you simply have to add the CoffeeShop Sunburst brush and adjust the layers to taste to get a beautiful edit.

A special thanks to Vanilla Sky Photography for donating this stunning image I used in this before/after.

NOTE:   Please refer to the  Glorious Light tutorial before using this action.  You must be able to use layer masks if you are running this action on a portrait.

These are the layers you will see after running this action.  Please refer to this tutorial for step-by-step instructions.

Use a soft low opacity white brush to add brightness to skin on the Brighten layer.  Adjust the Black to White gradient mask on the Dark to Light Gradient layer to add a dark to light gradient.  Use one of my Sunburst brushes in white on the Add Sunburst Brush layer.  Finally, mask out skin with a low opacity black brush on the Glorious Sun Tint layer.  Then adjust all of the layer opacities to taste.
