Photoshop Action Pack v3
Ben Long has released Photoshop Action Pack v3, a collection of Automator Actions that allow users of Photoshop CS and CS2 to drive Photoshop from within Apple's Automator. Bundling a total of 85 separate actions, version 3 of the Action Pack now lets users process Camera Raw files from within their Automator workflows, allowing them to use Automator to drive their raw photography pipeline. Automator, part of Mac OS X 10.4, allows users to easily construct automation routines by simply dragging and dropping special Automator Actions together to create a workflow. The Photoshop Action Pack provides everything you need to control all of Photoshop's major functions from within Automator. Version 3 includes 11 new actions including Add Empty Adjustment Layer, Add Graphic Watermark, Channel Mixer, Duplicate Current Layer, Photo Filter, Resize to File Size, Exposure, and Reduce Noise. The Photoshop Action Pack is free.
