PRESS RELEASE: Take Control of Your Actions with ActionDex, the Action Manager for Adobe Photoshop
Mason, Ohio -- May 27, 2004 -- PicsToBits (http://www.picstobits.com) announces the release of ActionDex 1.0, a powerful new tool to organize and manage Photoshop actions.
ActionDex solves a frequent problem for Photoshop users- organizing and managing hundreds or thousands of actions so they are easy to find. By using a hierarchy of user-defined categories (much like folders in Windows Explorer), users can organize their actions into logical task-based groupings to reflect their personal work style. Actions can even be placed in multiple categories and users can add notes to keep track of favorite settings, tips, etc. Predefined fields allow tracking of the action author, download location, description, and user assigned rating.
"This could be the 'killer app' when it comes to action management. It is feature rich, easy to use and the organizational features are unprecedented" says action evangelist-enthusiast Danny Raphael, author of the 293 page "Photoshop Actions - The Mother of All Tutorials" (www.atncentral.com). "If your Actions Palette is out of control, ActionDex is a 'must have'."
ActionDex can also generate and associate a preview image with actions for easy visualization of what each action does. Embedded messages in an action can be viewed even while an action is executing. A backup function allows users to make multiple backups of their action palette. Action authors can easily include ActionDex information with actions they develop and distribute.
ActionDex costs $29.95 (USD) and is available for Photoshop 7.0 or CS running on Windows 98/ME/NT/2000/XP. A full-featured evaluation version is available from the PicsToBits website at http://www.picstobits.com.
