Many people do already include screen grabs of their workflow.

mine...

Remember to save your workspaces so you can easily reset them when they get messy, or swap for different tasks.

Re: why don't share photoshop workspace screenshot

I make my own actions. That way I know exactly what they do, and they work just the way I want them - and without messing up my layers

If you search around on e.g. Deviantart there are lots of free ones; however expect a lot of them to be destructive (crappy and hard to tweak).

There is not easy way to make a preset color toning actions that always gives a great result because it depends so much on the image. However if you look around and you find an effect or tone that you like, see how you could recreate it and then save that as a preset (if it's just one adjustment) or an action that automates applying those adjustments (as layers) - then it is easy to recreate it so it matches on many images - or in a year when you forgot how to do it... If you have trouble achieving a specific "tone"/color cast, just ask - and provide an example.

Usually you can do A LOT with just curves. You can also try to set your adjustment layers to different blending modes for some cool effects (e.g. try the black & white adjustment layer using soft light/overlay, or set a contrast-enhancing curves layer to Luminosity).

Note that some effects are not just changing the colors per pixel but might include some filtering as well (e.g. to add glow, local contrast, etc.).

Here's a couple of my action sets (I usually don't place most of them online tho, but just ask);
Text frame
Sharpening actions
Photo aging actions
My frequency separation actions here on retouchpro (warning: intended for advanced users)
