I love when readers write me and request actions, presets, or storyboards. It is important to me to design freebies that you want, so I am thrilled when I get new ideas! One reader asked for me to design a new, bigger color bar action that would look gorgeous posted on Facebook, so here it is. 
The CoffeeShop “Color Bar 6” action loads your image and then allows you to custom pick 6 colors for the side color bar. You can print this or post it on social media, blogs, or websites. This is also a great way to pick colors for designing interiors or anything else, just grab an image you love and pick out coordinating colors. This action is so easy to use, and I hope you have fun!
For my example boards I used this flower image, this chair image, and a baby image from Lisa Rubel Photography (website, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter). 
You can download this free action toward the bottom of this post, after the tutorial.

CoffeeShop “Color Bar 6” Photoshop/PSE Action Tutorial:
Start the CoffeeShop “Color Bar 6” action and place the image when prompted.

Resize it to fit over the black square and click Enter.

The action will then prompt you to grab 6 colors from the image, one at a time. Simply click on the image to grab a color then press Enter until all 6 color bars are filled.
You can make adjustments after the action finishes, just double-click any color and change it by clicking on the image. You can also resize the image or flip the orientation after it is finished. 
Flatten and save as a .png and post or print!
