Leading Photoshop expert Ben Long has released the latest in his selection of Automator Actions 3.6 for the application.

Compatible with Adobe Photoshop CS3, Photoshop Action Pack includes 87 Automator Actions that allow users to script nearly all of Photoshop's functionality from within Apple's Automator.

Othewise, the new collection is primarily a maintenance update that offers improved rendering when using the Save for Web features. In version 3.5, Save for Web under CS3 yielded images that appeared washed out. This has been fixed in the new version.

The new collection also includes a completely redesigned Render action that takes up far less space in the workflow window, making workflow navigation easier.

A new Automator Action, Strip Extra Channels, removes all extra channels from a document, leaving only the component colour channels that are relevant to that document's colour mode.

The Photoshop Action Pack is available as a free download.

However, developer Ben Long said: "If you find yourself burdened by extra cash, you can get some relief by clicking on the PayPal button at the bottom of the Action Pack web page. This will walk you through a simple process that will relieve your excess cash pain."
