CoffeeShop Classic Storybook "Pollyanna" Photoshop/PSE Action!



I am starting a new series of actions that will all be named after classic children books. Today I am posting the first one called "Pollyanna". This Photoshop/PSE action is a beautiful cool matte and looks best on outdoor portraits and still life. And like most of my actions, the layers are completely adjustable.
Here is one example of a before and after.  I think this edit is so soft and dreamy.


This is also lovely on wedding images. (original)


I made a still life art print using the "Pollyanna" action and these Fine Art Textures. (original)

CoffeeShop Classics "Pollyanna" Photoshop/PSE Tutorial:


I ran "Pollyanna" on this gorgeous original image and made no changes. 

This action is very adjustable. If your white are blown out you can turn on "White Recovery". And I usually play with the opacity of the "Vignette" layer. You can also turn off the top "Matte Effect" layer if you want more contrast.

 I would love to see your own edits using this action on my Facebook page!

  1. This one obviously ended up in my 'still to visit' file but I figured since I was over here grabbing the new 'secret garden' one, I'd grab this one at the same time. Thanks so much!
