Okay, it's nothing special, but I wrote an action for making a curved frame around your pictures (see my siggy)!

I always use other peoples' actions, it's kind of nice to have created one myself (even if it is really basic)! Yay!

To send it, you just go into the Photoshop folder on your HD and into the Actions folder and you can just send the file of that action. Really easy to do! Same place you put actions!
