Need testers for a PS action

I call it "Mythical Lighting." It's actually two actions: one for adding a rainbow to an image and the other to add some soft sunbeams through the trees, etc. It seems to me that a certain commercial product with a coincidentally similar name is pretty redundant if you have PS. So give it a try and let me know what you think. You can't beat the price.

Here's an example of the results. The next post will (I hope) have the action.

Bill, I am kind of new at using actions. I tried both actions and kept getting window that said, warning, no pixles are selected.
Could you provide a tutorial.
Thanks,
Tom J

Sorry for the problem, but at least it's the kind of feedback I'm seeking. Open up the resize image box and make sure that your image width is at least 4 inches. If that is not the problem please let me know. I'm leaving town today until Monday, and can provide more info upon return. Thanks, Bill

Thanks, Fluff! At least I know it works. I can't envision it being used much either since it's just a special effect. Although the light can be used in such a subtle way that you may not even spot it. (Look at the PS7 logo next time you start it up.) I only wrote these because some folks on DPReview were debating the value of Mystical Lighting for $179! I just wanted to demonstrate that it would be redundant if you have PS. My favorite use of it so far was my post at the recent tractor mini-challenge at:
