I've started to experiment with Actions in Photoshop Elements 8. I've picked up a couple of sets of Actions (basically automated work flow steps)that helps to speed up your processing or editing.
The bottom photo is a photo of Fynn SOCC (straight out of the camera) and here is one with a Mindy Bush action run on it. I love how the colour is boosted! Once I figured out how to install the actions (a bit of a tricky deal) I'm loving how much they can enhance a photo.
