Using Photoshop Actions

To adjust colors or refine images quickly, use Actions in Photoshop. You can test out how Photoshop Actions work with our giveaway: 3 Free Photoshop Actions.

Actions are recorded editing operations that you can create or download. Once you have an action, you can run your images through batch operations and give hundreds of images a similar, refined look with little effort.
