CoffeeShop "Lustrous Color" Photoshop/PSE Fine Art Action!

Today I have a brand new action I hope you love as much as me! It is called "Lustrous Color" and it really does a nice job of adding gorgeous color and light to your image and has an optional matte-effect layer. This can turn those dreary fall/winter or overcast-day images into gorgeous colorful works of art!

Simply run the action and adjust each layer to taste.

This action also looks great on outdoor portraits, but I would suggest painting most of the "Lustrous Color" layer off skin as it can turn it too red.

Original images used in this post: (lighthouse, fall, face, bird, couple, woman on road, purse).

  1. So appreciated! You are probably starting to realize I have just (re)discovered your page and am going to town!! Thanks so much for these wonderful PsE actions. So hard to find. And may I ask, are there any good sites for good video tutorials for PsE 18? I still struggle at times and most sites are dealing with Ps only. Thank you so much!

    1. I love your comments and I am so happy you discovered me! And I am a huge fan of PSE, especially since you don't have to pay for it monthly like Photoshop. I personally just google for videos, I haven't found anyone in particular for PSE.


Thank you for taking the time to leave a message, I love reading them! All comments are personally moderated by me and I will post and answer them them as soon as possible.
