Actions Actions read all about them!

Stupid title, I know.

When you edit in photoshop and photoshop elements you typically do things in layers...adjust lighting, color, maybe add texture, etc. "Actions" are pre-determined changes that are grouped together and saved under one "action" so that they can save you time in photo editing. Creating actions is (in my mind) is really tough stuff.

Lots of people charge big bucks for actions but some people give them away for free! In case any of you are photoshop people, I thought I would share my finds.
Here are some of my favorite free photoshop elements actions and where I downloaded them from. (The links to download are listed at the end...)
