    Man I feel old… used to use some VERY old photograph actions with Photoshop back in the day – but nothing as nice as what you’re displaying with Photo Aging or Polaroid examples – I’ll have to forward to my design (and might need to take a peak at myself ta boot) :-)

    I really like #51 but when I click on it, it says page not found…?

  • http://www.monkeyslunch.com Spencer

    There are a lot of good ones in here that I’ve used before, but there are also a lot of really bad ones. Having a post that boasts 70 of the best is a bit misleading. Many of the actions that try and use a sketch or pencil effect are obviously amateur and make photos look worse. There’s tons of good stuff here though, I’d just encourage you to weed things out before posting and worry more about quality than quantity.
