    Great post, exactly what I needed to kick start my day. I’ve never really used the Photoshop Action feature as I’ve always done it manually (God knows why). It seems like a great collection of actions to use if you are wanting to give a the same effect to images you are batch editing. I followed a couple of the links you supplied and dug a little bit deeper to discover some tutorials on using the Actions feature and I must admit that the tutorial I did find was very informative. Thanks for sharing.
