What are Photoshop Actions and what can you do with them?
Photoshop Actions are recorded steps that help users recreate an editing style, instead of having to repeat each step each time. Using actions increases efficiency and decreases time spent editing an image or photo. In this post, we’ll show you how to do the following effects using free actions:
- Vintage Effects
- Black and White Effects
- HDR Effects
- Color Enhancing Effects
There are countless actions available that can be downloaded for free, and in this post we’ll feature 45 of them. Some of these are individual actions and others are sets that include multiple actions. These actions have been created by various designers and photographers and have been made available for free download.
Keep in mind that while Photoshop actions can be extremely useful and helpful, the results will vary from one photo to the next. Not every photo will look great with every action. Experiment with them and you’ll get a good feel for which actions work best with certain types of photos.
