    I love your collection. Thanks for continuing to inspire me to do something.

    Absolutely amazing collection. It never fails to excite me to see the really cool art that can be produced from Photoshop. All 35 in the collection are stunning; however, Action 006, Swagger Jagger Action, Just Me and the Sunlight and Shadow Actions are my favorites. Thanks for posting these.

  • Wonderful selection by effects…So useful..thanks for sharing..I love make photo without effect..but sometimes is possible create differet solutions..

    I have photoshop elements. Will these actions work on that software?

    • Steven Snell, August 16, 2012

      lynnville,
      I don’t know. I didn’t develop the actions and I don’t use Elements so I can’t really say. You could either download some and try them or contact the creators of the actions that you want to use and ask.

    I’m trying to donload these actions but I keep getting error page not found??

    • Steven Snell, November 13, 2012

      Monica,
      The creators of the actions can remove them from deviantART at any time, and some of them have removed their actions. I recommend you check our more recent collection Best Of – Photoshop Actions.

    Awe crap.. Thanks Steven, I’m new here. my computer crashed and the back up external is having issues.. I’m not sure what I got into here.. I lost EVERYTHING and was trying to finish up some family session and had a few i needed… well wanted some actions for so I thought I’d try to find a few new ones and creators before shelling out more thousands on packs.. the last few I purchased I wasn’t thoroughly impressed with.
    Thanks again for you fast reply I will check it out!
    Happy Editing!
