CoffeeShop "Buttercream Luxe" Photoshop/PSE Action!

I am excited to post the download for my newest free action called "CoffeeShop Buttercream Luxe".  This is a really pretty action that applies a golden matte effect to your images and it is fully adjustable.

For this tutorial I used some beautiful images from Jill Wellington (FacebookBlog).

CoffeeShop Buttercream Luxe Action Tutorial:

Run the action and adjust point circled in red (screenshot above) in the Curve pop-up point  to fine-tune the Matte effect for each image. 

After the action finishes you will have 5 adjustable layers over the Background.  Turn layers off, adjust their opacity, or paint on the layer masks.  

If you want to add rosy cheeks or lips to your portraits you can use a soft white brush on the Rosy Lips and Cheeks black layer mask.

I hope you enjoy playing with my newest free action. I have some really nice storyboards coming out later this week, so stop on by later at the CoffeeShop!!!
