    Just started playing with Actions a couple of days ago when I had MUCHO scans to do that were crappy in the same exact way. Actions are super!

    Here's something I just discoved that probably most others already know:

    I was spending large sums of time trying to line up slanted images...had to keep trying to guess what angle to rotate the darn things. Then I discovered that if I simply used the ruler and drew a line on the image at the angle that looked right, that angle setting was automatically plugged into the ROTATE>CANVAS>ARBITRARY setting for how much to rotate. Those folks at PS think of everything. (Sometimes TOO much!)

    No, I just use the old fashioned one step at a time method. It takes me a while to get them done also. Sure wish there were some magic methods. I know there are actions that can be run on bunches of photos with similar problems but I always feel each picture is an individual and needs it's own touchups so I don't use them.

    started a topic Time Savers

    Time Savers

    Since it still takes me a week or two to get halfway through a restoration I wondered if any of you have any favorite time saving techniques other than hot keys you use for certain situations. Maybe you use self made actions for some things?

    Is it worthwhile to sell actions?
    by Rydiant
    I've developed a series of actions that produce effects like some commercial plugins. Because the quality of output compares well (and in some ways surpasses what's already out there,) I think users would be willing to pay for the actions at a fraction of the cost of a plugin alternative.

    Action Buttons
    by byRo
    It took me a long time (too long) to discover this wonderful site.
    I've already learned so many techniques, shortcuts.......but there are also a number of things that I discovered 'before' that I haven't seen here (did a search). One - just a quickie - is the use of the action buttons....
