I have a new set of free Photoshop Actions to share with you all today. These Winter Blues photo effects are designed to complement your cold and snowy photographs by enhancing cloudy skies and converting boring overcast greys to subtle cool hues. There’s 10 Actions to choose from, each with a different style that best suits a specific type of image, but they can all be used to enhance your pictures with interesting effects all year round!

Free Winter Blues Photoshop Actions

Load the downloaded .ATN file into Photoshop, then choose one of the 10 Winter Blues recordings and press the Play icon in the Actions panel to process your image with a range of preset adjustments. To fine tune the result, adjust the Opacity of the Group to tone down the impact of the effect, or dive into the adjustment layers and manually change the settings.

  • Hypothermia
    Reduces the temperature of your photographs with cold blue hues.
  • Shard
    Applies a sharp cyan overlay with high contrast adjustments.
  • Wonderland
    Mixes deep blue shadows with golden highlights to enhance wintry landscapes.
  • Glacier
    Combines low contrast adjustments with a fresh glacial turquoise colour cast.
  • Frost
    Leaves a covering of bleak blue-grey tones with a strong matte effect.
  • Evergreen
    Picks out any remaining greenery from trees and foliage in landscape shots.
  • Snowstorm
    Darkens images with a deep blue colour cast and low contrast adjustments.
  • Solstice
    Brings out the warm tones of photographs taken with a low sun in clear skies.
  • Frozen
    Intensifies bright cyan blue colours for a cold but vibrant photo effect.
  • Blizzard
    Forms a dark mood with washed out colours and deep blue shadows.

  1. Cool!
    I have been seeing videos on adding blues to an overall image. I love that effect! These will help!
    Thank you!

  2. Hi Chris. I am already on your mailing list. Can I still receive this bundle? I may just be missing it, but I don’t see a link to download. Thanks for the help. LOVE your tutorials!

    • Never mind. It downloaded and I didn’t realize it. Obviously I need to clear off my desktop. :) Thanks again for all of the amazing tools.

  3. Thank you very much for your generosity. I’m so appreciative. You create amazing work to inspire.
    Wishing you a magnificent day.

  4. Hi, Chris–
    These Winter Blues effects are fantastic! I tried opening in Photoshop and downloading followed by double clicking. Where on my Photoshop page would the .atn app appear? Is there a different application for the States?
