Hey guys, someone posted this to the Photographer's meetup and I  
thought I'd share...since I thought he messaged our group after all!

PS: Does anyone want me to bring a photoshop top secret dvd tomorrow?
Any specific requests?


Nick,

Honestly, I think this would be a great task for us to come up with a
solution to. Bring this to the next meetup and we'll al give it a go?
I really discourage buying photoshop plugins. Generally they're just
an actionset with a couple of parameters thrown in. IE: Do this, then
do this, then....

If we can come up with a solution, we'll all learn something and save
you some $ :)

-Andrew
