What are Photoshop Actions? Great question! On this page we’ll tell you everything you need to know about Actions in general, as well as specific details about our Nature Photography Actions for Nature Photographers!
Simply, Actions automate a series of things you do to your images. If you regularly perform a specific set of steps in Photoshop to turn your images into black and white, for example, you can record all those steps so later with one click of a button, you can replicate that process on hundreds of images.
Now, actions aren’t just for basic image processing. Photoshop actions are best used to instantly duplicate your special post-processing tricks, so you can replicate your workflow on ANY image in an instant.
If you create a great look that uses 20 layers and lots of adjustments, you can imagine how tedious that would be if you had to do it on 30 or 40 images. Actions make it easy.
Or maybe you don’t have hundreds of images, but you still want to be able to replicate EXACTLY the process you used. Actions make this all possible.
Here’s a nice screen video that shows you how to install actions into Photoshop. These steps are the same for all versions of Photoshop.
