New Photoshop Action Pack available

Photographer, author, and scripter Ben Long has updated his popular set of AppleScripts, taking the Photoshop Action Pack to version 3.5–adding CS3 compatibility and a new action in the process:

The Photoshop Action Pack lets you
control Photoshop CS, CS2 and now CS3 from Apple’s Automator,
allowing you to create complex automated image processing workflows.
Through Automator’s drag-and-drop interface, you can easily build
stand-alone applications, droplets, Finder plug-ins and watch folders
that automate all sorts of normally tedious operations. With the
addition of the Photoshop Action Pack, you can use Automator to drive
Photoshop.

As with previous versions, the Photoshop Action Pack v3.5 is
free, although donations are gratefully received through an attractive PayPal button.

On a semi-related note, Ben has also posted an interesting article containing tips on night photography.  I could stand to take some of this advice, in order not to produce more images that look like they’ve been doused in soggy Fruity Pebbles. (At least they’re good for testing noise reduction technologies.)

New Photoshop plug-ins: Genuine Fractals, YouSendIt

  • onOne, the publishers of resizing tool Genuine Fractals and other Photoshop plug-ins, have gone native with their tools, offering Universal Binary versions of Mask Pro, PhotoFrame Pro, and Intellihance Pro along with Genuine Fractals.  They’re offering some free UB updates as well as a plug-in suite that includes all four tools.
  • The file transfer experts at YouSendIt have created a Photoshop plug-in that automates the process of sending large files, directly from Photoshop.  Sounds pretty cool, though I haven’t gotten to check it out.  I’ve always wanted a way inside Photoshop and other tools to say, "Okay, these three open files–bang, send ’em to my client, zero fuss."
