Do you find yourself repeating certain steps over and over again while working on an image in Photoshop? Ever wish there was a way to replicate those steps by simply pressing a button? Well there is! Photoshop Actions do just that. They allow you to record then use a set of actions on any image.
Photoshop comes with a variety of built in actions for you to use. Finding them is easy, just hit Alt-F9 on the pc (Option-F9 on Mac), or navigate to Window > Actions. The actions tab will be located next to the history tab at the top of your screen as shown below.
Here's an example using Photoshop's built in sepia tone action.
Photoshop Actions can save you time and make your workflow more efficient. You can either make your own custom actions or use actions made by others. There are many available both free and paid on sites like DeviantART. Do you use Photoshop Actions in your workflow? Do you have any favorite actions? Share them with us in the comments!
