    Hello. I downloaded your free actions yesterday and while they are quite lovely, the first ‘base’ action has some steps that don’t work in CS3. It tries to make a few adjustment layers that are obviously functions CS3 do not have. You state that they are CS3 compatible and I was interested in buying the complete bundle but obviously I don’t want to waste money if I can’t actually use a handful of the actions. Any way of tweaking them or at least breaking down the actions a little so I know what adjustment layer I can use to compensate (since it comes up with ‘unknown’ when I run it)

    I tried to send this through your contact form but it kept giving me an error message and asking me to contact you some other way.

      Hey Rebecca. Thanks for the comment. I’m going to retest the actions soon, and I’ll make sure they are fully compatible with CS3.

      Unfortunately I tried to email you and it said that the email was invalid or non-existent, could you reply making sure your email is correct?

      I just fixed the contact form, sorry for the error it was improperly registered! All fixed now though.

      Thanks, I’ll be in touch soon :)
