Author: Complete Digital Photography
Notes: The download contains only the CS2 version; for the CS1 version and other updates, check here.
Version 3.0 of the Action Pack includes 11 new actions – Add Layer, Add Empty Adjustment Layer, Add Graphic Watermark, Channel Mixer, Duplicate Current Layer, Paint Daubs, Photo Filter, Resize to File Size, Scale to X by 10%, Swap Colors, Exposure, and Reduce Noise. In addition, Version 3 now allows you to open any Camera Raw files supported by the version of Photoshop that you’re using. When opening Raw files using the Action Pack, Photoshop will automatically read any previously stored conversion settings and convert your document accordingly. This means you can now use an Automator workflow to batch process raw files that you’ve already configured in Camera Raw. Version 3 of the Action Pack also includes many new features to facilitate non-destructive editing, such as the creation of Adjustment Layers. CS2 users now have access to Photoshop’s Save for Web feature from the Action Pack, for creating highly optimized JPEG and GIF files.
