Best Photoshop Actions

Shaun Carter , May 27, 2007; 09:42 a.m.

I am currently using the Artistic Volume II Kubota action with Photoshop CS (plus a few that I've created on my own). My favorite and most used is the daily multivitamin. Are there better ones out there now for wedding photography work? Is Kubota old news now? If so what's the latest and greatest and most popular?

Thanks!

I don't know if Kubota is old news, but these are some I've had my eye on:

Hope this helps! :o)

I've got Kubota's 3rd set, some from Parker P, and from Yervant. I use Kubota's Vol. 2 more than all the others combined. The daily vitamin action is a real winner.

Love love love the doll face from the third series of Kubota. Also love the boutwells. Another favorite is the look from the third series since it works to contrast just about anything.

The Totally Rad Actions are pretty sweet!!

Hmm... I've worked with a few sets, and one thing I can say, is that I will never waste another dime again on the Kubota Tools, Dashboard or whatever he calls them next. The Kubota Actions are terrible, and definitely old news... too many goofy stupid trix for the one or two that were actually useful, even at that the image quality is typically lost on everything. Parker's and Yervant's are of much better quality, but not as popular I guess unless you're a DWF groupie... too bad. Boutwell's image processor is also often quite good but can be frustrating at times...
