The latest version of the Photoshop Automator Actions collection, version 5.0.7 is now compatible with Photoshop CC, in addition to CS4, CS5, CS5.5, and CS6. All users will want to upgrade, though, since the new version includes several important bug fixes to file naming and the Edit IPTC Info action. Requires Snow Leopard, Lion, Mountain Lion, or Mavericks. The update is available for free to current owners of the CS6, CS5, CS5.5, and CS4 packages. For new users, there’s still a free version, and a $20 pro option. Note that you cannot upgrade for free from Photoshop version to Photoshop version. In other words, if you own the CS6 version, you can get a free update that will work with CS6. If you want the CC version, you’ll have to buy it separately.
