action for white beveled mat

I'm looking for a nice action for white museum quality beveled mats. Nothing colored They could have a black trim but of the quality you would see in a museum as opposed to arts & crafts.I'm using a Mac pro Intel, 5GB RAM Leopard 10.5.4 Photoshop CS3. Thank You.

Check www.atncentral.com and www.epaperpress.com (Photography > Photoshop > Frames); both sites have actions that could meet your needs.

Focus16, Just a simple mueseum white mat frame with a bevel cut inside and usually there is more room at the bottom of the frame than the sides and top.
Most of what I find either has a double mat or a textured mat or an added frame around the mat.

When it comes to frame-type actions, the action author has 3 options:
* program specific edge widths, for example 1" for T, L and R, and 2" for bottom, a method that which works fine for images of a specific size, i.e., one action for 8x10, another for 11x14, another for 24x30, etc. assuming different edge width requirements for each size
* program edge width based on a percentage of image width and height, a method that has limitations in terms of landscape vs. portrait orientation
* program the action to stop along the way to solicit user input as needed, which doesn't work well if one is attempting to do batch processing

So there's no free lunch here...

If you can further refine your requirements, that will help.

this the one I'm looking for.
