    Default Photoshop Elements actions?

    We got PE a little while back and I was wondering if anyone has some "must have" PE actions? I do like to do my own editing, but some of the actions really are quick and produce some beautiful results, so for "quickies" are there any recommendations? I tried a few freebies from Texas Chicks, Paint the Moon, and MCP... I'd love more freebies, but interested in paid ones too, if they're really good and helpful!

    Maybe check out the Coffee Shop Blog? Lots of free actions for Elements there. I don't have any that I typically use, but I've been thinking about getting a generic workflow set to help me out when I start doing sessions for others again. One that I've considered is Brianna Graham's Perfect Workflow. Perfect Workflow (for PSE 11) ? Brianna Graham Actions I just haven't had the money to spend on anything yet.

    Yeah, I'm just thinking something for a good workflow when I'm doing people pics (usually my kids, but I have some shoots in the offing for friends too). The Brianna Graham set you linked to looks fantastic. Too rich for my wallet right now, but I will keep that in mind.

    I tried some of the Coffee Shop ones, wasn't too happy with the results for the most part. There are a few there that seem okay, though.

    Honestly, I use the perfect portrait3 off coffeeshop blog, but I tweak everything. I use it mostly b/c it has the burning/dodging, vignette, boost, and brighten all in one. I tweak EVERY action I use. That is one I always use though. I love the Matte b&w from there. I also love Summer Solstice from M4H (free bundle) but that's the ones I really use. I have tons that just sit there. I haven't spent a penny, but when I do, I will be shopping b/c I would love some!
