Good question, I was thinking of buying them. Would love to see what others think also.

I have a few of these and I really like them.

Here are a few of my first experiments. I did nothing to the before photos before applying the actions:









soft tea

little kisses

frosty

cherry kiss

Are they editable or do they automatically flatten at the end?

Are they a good deal? No. $4 is way too much and photoshop actions can be found free online. Are they cool? Yes!

I just bought all of them except Frosty and experimented with them a little last night. I really like them. My favorites are from Florabella but I think these are a good deal in comparison. And they don't flatten immediately so you are able to make adjustments.

I just purchased today. Loaded them on my mac for PSE10. I have them in the correct folder, but am not able to access them when I am in PSE10. Can anyone help with this?

Some of us are having problems with them. There was a thread yesterday. Those of you who are using them successfully, are you using PSE?

For actions that flatten right away, do a cmd-alt-z to back up a step or two. It will expand the action and let you edit.

I'm running these in PSE9 with Windows. With a few of them I get the messages like "command exposure not available" and "command color balance not available" I just bypass it and let it finish.

Kris, what are your pictures looking like with the Frosty action?

They don't flatten automatically and you can play around a bit. I hae PSE11 and they work fine!

Wow, some beautiful samples! Although I've been eyeing them, I don't have PSE so they are not in my cart.

Ok. I tried the action (I have PSE 10, I think I said 9 earlier) on your picture, Laura. Frosty looks exactly the same when I run it as yours does. So, I guess there is no problem. I ran it on pictures that weren't dark enough to start with. Totally my issue. There is still the error and I assume the action is missing something the designer intended it to do. However, not a big deal.

OK, I see. Your photo wasn't as dark as mine so the action was over-frosting

You've got me thinking about the error messages, though. I'm going to see if I can find someone with full photoshop to try a side by side comparison of the same picture PSE vs photoshop. Just to see if there is a difference.

I am including another example - I just now installed a couple of them in PSE. I did get an error message, however clicking continue through it and the action still worked great.
