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!
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.
