Color Efex Kodachrome (Failure)

My Kodachrome action

I had another go at the Kodachrome PS action I've been working on for awhile. I added some new adjustment layers to mess with the colors and get them to where they need to be. I think it's far better than any other photoshop plug-in I've seen, including Nik's Color Efex and Alien Skin's Exposure. I think the consensus is that if you boost the saturation and add a little contrast then you have a Kodachrome look-alike, but you actually have to alter the colors. The reds needed the most adjusting, but the greens and blues needed just a tweak as well. Skin tones are still a problem in low light. More testing...
