Fred Miranda's FM Actions for Photoshop/Elements go to a new level as plug-ins.
Fred Miranda has been busy, as he writes recently. "I just got back from a recent trip to Brazil and I wanted to update you on a few new releases. I have taken my Photoshop FM Actions to a new level and am happy to announce the release of my first series of Photoshop compatible, FM Plugins.
