I agree that Actions are the way to go in PS. Mine also change the Color Bit Depth Mode to 8-bit, as I am almost always working in 16-bit, when I process my Camera RAW files. Not sure about the included PS Actions, but in PS CS2, I have just written several that do all the pre-processing, and then do a Automate>Batch for entire folders of these images. I also will keep the files in PSD format, when I do the final Save_As.
This ARTICLE covers most of my operations, using your workflow.
Nice to know that PS installs with Actions that can do most of this. I never saw them in CS/CS2, but maybe just did not look, or perhaps Adobe has added them in CS3/CS4. Nice to know.
You are very welcome, I'm glad I could return the favour for the help you
gave me on this very subject a week or two ago. Between you and Steve
Grisetti I am now up and running so all I need to come up to speed now is
some of the advanced keyframe functions.
Yes your work flow and mine are 99% identical.

That is great news. We try, to the best of our abilities, to help everyone.
Thanks for the tip on the included Actions. Now, I have to check CS2 to see if they were included there too. I have a tendency to just go construct my own, and often overlook existing ones - duh!
