Colorful Film

I spent the weekend happily scrapping away. As I was scrapping, I realized that I wanted to do something different to my photos. Some of them had an almost vintage feel stylistically and I wanted to enhance that look.

Here is a set of actions I made in CS4. You should be able to use them in CS and up. All the layers are adjustable, including the film grain. I am working on a set for Photoshop Elements. I'm a former Elements user so I know how hard it can be to find actions! So tell me - what program do you use to edit your photos and make your scrapbook pages?

Here are a couple of photos using the actions:

The original phot is gorgeous, and I love the effect of the actions. I use Photoshop elements 7 so I.m looking forward to you offering some actions I can use. Thank you for sharing your time and effort.

I'm just getting started and have --don't laugh! :)--elements 2! So I'm not even sure what actions are. I've read about them, but no clue as to what they are. I'll keep checking your blog to see if you were able to do some things for elements. I'm so grateful to you--and other like you--that post tuts, etc. That's how I've been learning! :) Thanks again!

I use elements, but I've been looking around and didn't know where to look for actions, brushes etc. Any suggestions?
