Photoshop Tip: Actions in Photoshop & Elements

I don’t know how many of you have ever used actions to speed up and enhance your workflow and any editing that you may do to your digital photos in Photoshop. But if you haven’t, I highly recommend checking some of these fun little programs out. And, especially if you have an interest in editing and applying cool, interesting effects to your photographs.

Actions are little mini programs, recorded steps that you can load into Photoshop or Elements and, once loaded, will automate a process in Photoshop or in Elements.

There are all sorts of actions available out there, but the ones that I love the most are those that apply a certain photographic effect to an image. The results can be wonderful!

So you don’t have to know exactly how to give your photos a particular look – you can just find an action that will do it for you.
