Free Add Haze Action for Photoshop and PSE

Pin It

Earlier this week I did a tutorial on how to add haze to an image in Photoshop Elements (and Photoshop) and mentioned that I would be releasing an action that does just that. So….here you go….. Add Haze. 😉 No confusion in what it does, right?

The action offers six different color hazes plus a layer that brings back a little bit of contrast. Each layer is adjustable.

This action is FREE and works in both Photoshop CS# and Photoshop Elements (versions 10 to 6, not sure about older than that).

To run it, simply hit the play button (in CS#) or the Apply button (or double click on thumbnail) in PSE. The action throws out all the adjustment layers then turns them all OFF. You go through and turn on the ones you want, and adjust layer opacities as needed.
