For anyone using Photoshop Lightroom, there's some useful plugins here:
Jeffrey Friedl’s Blog Jeffrey’s Lightroom Goodies (Plugins and Tools)
I mostly use the export plugins, which support direct export from Lightroom to Facebook, Picasa, Zenfolio, Flickr and SmugMug. I'm a happy user of the Zenfolio plugin.

Which brings me to...
Zenfolio | hosting service for photo galleries | a place to learn and enjoy photography
Anther online gallery, but after much searching the one i've decided I like best. I've paid for an unlimited account, but you can get free ones too. Just tag any photos I want to upload in Lightroom and synchronise the two, and it'll upload them including the full folder structure, and any comments, tags, etc I choose.
Edit: Ooooh just noticed I can do referrals too - so if anyone does join, please use referral code RM4-22E-C6T, ta :D

Hope they help :)

David

Sometime ago I downloaded a set of actions for photoshop that made adjustments to underwater photos really easy. Having done a search recently it appears that the webpage that linked to these has been removed by scubaboards. I have managed to find a backup of these in my archives and have posted them here http://www.tileadhesive.co.uk/bobsautomatic.zip

They enable you to modify a photo from this:


to this:


with just one click.

I know they work with photoshop CS2 and am guessing that they will work with later versions.

To use them you need to copy the .atn file in to directory C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Photoshop CS2\Presets\Photoshop Actions assuming that you have installed photoshop to the default location. You may then need to go onto the actions tab, click on the button to load an action (the tiny right pointing triangle on the right of the tab) and load the bob's automatic action.
From the set of actions available I find the autolayers one very useful as this gives you a number of alternatives to choose from.
