Default Re: Actions??

Actions are just shortcuts for the editing process. Just think of all the steps it takes to make a photo better. Well, Actions are installed and with the click of a button all can be done at one time.

There are several places to purchase/download them (free ones too). I LOVE working with actions.

Not sure if there is anything for other programs though.

You can get an idea from this site (of what certain actions can do)

Default Re: Actions??

There are no actions for flash based programs such as picnik as actions are specific to PS and operate based upon their method of working in layers. Some off brands have similar operations but they call them by other names, photo FX for example has Macros. If your program is layer based google "quick edits in --insert your program-" you may find them but they are rare. Dont learn to rely on actions though. They are built based uponthe designers exposures and shooting style, meaning every picture produces a different effect and you'll need to know how to adjust each layer and fix exposure problems to make them look right.
