Question for all you Photoshop users

I have photoshop elements. I love it, but am wanting to recreate some of the actions you guys are using on your photos. Do any of you know how to do it? I would love it if you guys could tell me how to do so. Maybe a feature Friday????

I usually use Pioneer Woman's actions, then tweak them and add stuff of my own too. They're free (yay!), but unfortunately she doesn't have any for elements... yet. http://thepioneerwoman.com/photography/

There are free actions for elements at this website: http://www.coffeeteaphotography.blogspot.com/

You could check those out and see what you think.

Others use Totally Rad Actions, which are totally awesome (and rad!) but pricey. I did download the free sample ones, and I use those sometimes. I just don't have very many of them. :) http://www.gettotallyrad.com/

There are a lot of cool effects you can get by duplicating layers and changing the blending mode and adjusting the opacity. Then when you start adjusting the saturation and colors your possibilities are practically endless.

If you ever have any specific questions like, "I want to recreate THIS effect" feel free to email me a sample of it and I'll do my best to walk you through. My email is cgardunia@hotmail.com.

Thank you to the both of you!!!! I got some actions from the coffee and tea blog, and looked at the totally rad ones(they don't work in elements)
One I would really like to recreate was the "pro touchup" from totally rad actions.(I just may be emailing you Charlotte) I just like the actions cause they take a little less time. With four kids running around I just don't have the time.
