Photoshop Action Pack 3.6
The operator of Complete Digital Photography has released an updated version of the Photoshop Action Pack, bringing it to v3.6. The pack works in tandem with Apple's Automator controls, allowing Photoshop users to quickly execute many functions; unlike Photoshop's built-in Actions, Automator allows the inclusion of outside programs, and conditional response based on the attributes of an image. Some possible commands out of 87 total include automatic color and exposure adjustment, HDR merging, and image or canvas resizing. Version 3.6 is exclusively for Photoshop CS3, and fixes "washed-out" images produced when using Save for Web.
The Render action has also been altered to occupy less space in the workflow window, and a new action has been added called Strip Extra Channels, which removes everything but the component color channels associated with a document's color gamut. The Action Pack is a free download, but donations are encouraged.
