Free Action! The new and improved eyelove2

Friday, November 05, 2010Morgan

This action works in Photoshop and Photoshop Elements
It has two layers, definition and brightness and contrast.
The definition layer: Use a soft white brush on the black layer mask to define the eye and eye lashes, I also use it on the nostril, mouth, eye brows and hair.
The brightness/contrast layer: Use a soft white brush on the black layer mask and color on the iris and pupil. This will brighten and enhance the catchlights without changing the actual color of the eyes.
Download the free eyelove2 action >here<


Works great on light eyes

and also works great on darker eyes

  8. Make sure to have your image flattened before running the action. If it continues to give you trouble uninstall the action and install it again.

  9. The image is flattened because it is a picture from the camera once already so I've tried and nothing: /

  10. Only that I open a picture straight from the camera and you can not flatten and reinstall also give nothing.

  12. Well, and I do not share my picture comes straight from the camera to flatten the image so I can not retry the installation again and have nothing. Please tell me how to do that went

  13. Are you using the English version of PS or PSE? If not it may not work.

    ReplyDelete
  14. I use Polish version

  15. It probably won't work since the commands are in English

  20. Hi Morgan,

    When I use the white brush on the definition area, nothing happens, should it? Then,
    when I use the white brush on the brightness layer, the eye area is almost completely white. Help???

  21. Make sure you're on the layer mask, the one to the far right.

  24. Thanks for doing this free action! I downloaded both versions for Photoshop. For some reason, only shiny works for the 1st one and only bright/contract works for the 2nd one - not sure what I'm doing wrong? Thank you!

    ReplyDelete
  25. Thank you so much for sharing this beautiful action. So eager to try it out! Your work is stunning.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Oh my...I have tried several different "eye sparkle" actions but this is by FAR the best one. I love that I have so much freedom with this action. My photo-editing just went up another few notches! Thank you!

  30. I uploaded the action, however, I am confused with whats next! Am I supposed to do something before I hit the "play" button to run the action? Thank you!

  31. HI- I loaded this into my PSE 10 for Mac, and when I run it, it doesn't change the image at all. Image is straight out of the camera. Is there something else I need to do to it?

    ReplyDelete
  32. I followed instructions to install and it's in the program. I apply it, but don't see any difference. I am brand new to elements and haven't used effects yet. I have Windows 8 and am using Elements 12

  33. Do you happen to have screen shots of the steps to use the action? I figured out the upload which is the first time I have used an action. I found it in the actions tab, selected the eyes, and then pressed play, but it doesn't seem to be working as expected :(
