CoffeeShop "Rose-Colored Glasses" Photoshop/PSE Fine Art Action!

Today I have a new really pretty Photoshop/PSE action called "Rose-Colored Glasses". This action is fully adjustable and can be gorgeous on portraits, floral images, landscapes and so many other images. It even has an optional layer where you can add some light-leak from the top of the image. 

I have a tutorial posted below and the original images used in this post are girl in treescouple, girl in braids, and portrait of woman and the flower images is by Bloom Photography.

NOTE: I accidentally called this action "Rose-Tinted Glasses" on the images below and I didn't have time to change them. The action is really called "Rose-Colored Glasses". :-)

I wanted to let you know Imp's eyelid is completely healed!!!

CoffeeShop "Rose-Tinted Glasses" Photoshop/PSE Action Tutorial:

Run the "Rose-Tinted Glasses" action. As you can see, many of the layers are turned off. You can turn on these optional layers, adjust any layer's opacity, and paint on the layer masks.

In this edit I turned down the "Rose-Colored Glasses" layer's opacity.

Then I turned on "Contrast Bump" and lowered the opacity.

I turned on "Save the Whites" to bring back some detail in her wedding dress.

Then I turned on the "Vignette" layer and used a soft black brush to remove this layer from the center of the image so only the edges are slightly darkened.

I turned on the "Add Light" layer  but didn't think the hazy light coming from the top worked with this image. But I do love using it on other images like the floral one from Bloom I posted at the top of this post.

I left "Add Pink to Highlights" as-is and decided to paint out the woman's skin from "Save the Whites" so she would look brighter.

This was a fun edit and I hope you enjoy using my new action! I would love to see your after's on my Facebook page.
