CoffeeShop "Ocean Mist" Fine Art Photoshop/PSE Action!

I hope everyone has a wonderful Easter weekend. This is the first time in my life I won't be celebrating it with my sisters and parents. It is going to be especially sad that our kids can't get together... But this will pass. The news lately is getting a little more positive and I am seeing some light at the end of the tunnel. I hope you and your loved ones are doing ok.

I was in the mood to write a new soft pastel action, so today I am sharing CoffeeShop "Ocean Mist". This action is gorgeous on most images and is fully customizable. You can use this to make a high contrast image too as I posted below in one of my examples. 

Original images used in this post: (butterfly, flowers).

CoffeeShop "Ocean Mist" Action Tutorial:

 For this image, I turned on both Ocean layers along with Soft and Bright. I didn't turn on Mist as I wanted some contrast. I did use the layer mask to remove some of the Ocean layer off the butterfly and flower so they weren't so blue.

Add the gray Bethany texture in Soft Light for this gorgeous edit.

Turn off Soft and Bright and you have a completely different edit.

I hope you enjoy this action!

  1. I'm glad to hear you guys are doing well. Yes, this Easter is going to be a little sad for billions of people around the world I'm afraid. I hope that you guys continue to take care. Thanks so much for the pretty action.


    1. Lisa, hope you guys had a wonderful Easter and are doing well. And you are so welcome, I am glad you like this new action! Rita

  2. When I click on the download button nothing happens ( I can download the others)

    1. Try a different browser! I just checked the link in Safari and Firefox on my computer and it worked.

  3. I bought the package to help out Rita as I have used alot in the past and thought It was time to buy them and very disappointed that there are no png to support a picture for the atn so I came to the page here to download the pngs and now it's saying that I have to buy the package again I don't understand :(

    1. Thank you so much for your support, I really appreciate it! The link for the free action is toward the bottom of the post after "I hope you enjoy this action". I don't include those little PNG image files for PSE anymore with any of my actions. They haven't been supported since PSE11 came out (over 10 years ago), so I stopped making them. Most people just use the text descriptions as it is the same in Photoshop. But if you still want to use them you can create your own, just use one of my old ones as a template. It is a shame PSE stopped supporting them, but thankfully most of my old actions still run in the older versions.


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.
