      Hi Adrian,

      Thank you for your comment. I double checked and found only two actions that were free but now are for sale and I removed them from the list. You can download the rest of the actions, you probably just have to get an account with the website.

    Photoshop is really a stunning software that is widely used for photo editing and improvising special effects in different photos. The above examples are definitely good.

    I LOVE LOVE LOVE – Photo Coloring 11. As a developer that’s spending more and more time on the front end I have to admit that these actions are really helping me add real value to the images i use.

    I do add adjustments to stock images, but don’t get that silky glossy really colorful look some sites get for web optimized images… is this a great photoshoper or a clever use of addons?

    There are so many ways on how to pimp our photos in order to make our web pages or other project look more interesting, but not everyone has the means to afford or have access to a photo editing suite which will allow us to do this. This applications just pop out more ideas which can be useful for my myspace profile. So, thanks a lot.

    I almost never create responses, but after browsing a ton of comments here Pimp Your Photo – Over 20 Awesome and Free Photoshop Actions | Pixel 77.
    I actually do have a couple of questions for you if
    you do not mind. Is it only me or does it look
    like some of the responses come across as if they are coming from
    brain dead visitors? :-P And, if you are posting at other social sites, I’d like to keep up with everything new you have to post. Could you post a list of the complete urls of your social networking pages like your linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?
