Lomo Effect Photoshop Action

Does anyone here have the Photoshop action that simulates the effect from a Lomo camera?

The action was originally posted at redscreen.net but that site is down for quite some time and there's no indication when it will be back up. Someone else put the action up for download because of the site being down, but the file is corrupt or something because it's not downloading completely and I get an error message when I try to load it (something about an unexpected end-of-file).

Anyway, I have been going nuts looks for this. If anyone has it and would be willing to send it my way I would be forever thankful.:bow

    Cool stuff in that link, Cletus. I messed around with one of his ideas, changed it a bit, and altered this movement shot:

    Just do a search (CTRL+F) for lomo and it'll find it quick.

    There are lots of ways of doing this. I like adjusting the curves on each individual R, G, B value. Lomo cameras tend to accentuate reds more I find. Also, in addition, I'll add a two strip filter (I have tiffen dfx) and this makes the greens a lot more bland, although you could do this in PS with exposure controls such as gamma and saturation, etc... Slight black vignetting helps too! :D
