After reading an actions themed thread earlier today, it got me curious to know who out there also knows of the Retouchers Toolbox or Adobe's Configurator?
it's a panel extension where you can have everything you need right there ready to use rather than going to the menus for everything. Therefore when it's there you legit just click on the button and WHAMMM, its quick fast and easy (though personally I have majority of what i use mapped out to keyboard shortcuts mapped out)

here are some examples of some of the preconfigured version
People should totally check this out because with Adobe configurator to totally customize it to your own wants and needs, you can even have actions set as buttons right there rather than going specifically to actions panel
