CoffeeShop "Sweet Bakery Hard Glazes" PS/PSE Action Set!

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!

  3. Hello! I love this Action Set, especially the Vanilla with the Matte. I am slowly starting to use lightroom and was wondering if you had a Lightroom preset of this! Thanks!
