Photoshop actions can be extremely helpful for experimenting with different effects and for saving time during the photo editing process. Of course, the ideal situation would be to take photographs effectively in the first place. However, as a designer you are likely to find yourself in situations where you won’t be the one taking the photos, and you’ll need to work with something that isn’t exactly what you need. In these cases, the actions featured here may be helpful for your photo editing.

I recently published a post, CMS Toolbox, that described a number of leading content management systems and provided links to resources for each. The post drew some very good feedback and a lot of suggestions for others that readers would like to see included. So as a result I thought it might be helpful to publish this list of recommendations that were made by readers.
Here you will find 12 content management systems and quotes from reader comments about each. Since I haven’t used these systems before I thought it would be best to simply let the readers do the talking. Some of the comments included more descriptive information than others, so for those CMSs that didn’t have much of a description from readers I have also included some information from their website.
