Create Actions

If you find yourself repeating a process in Photoshop on a regular basis, it’s worth setting it up as an Action. Actions are one click button that, when pressed, apply a sequence of user-defined changes to your image. By not having to go through the set up manually, you’ll be saving time on every image.

To set up a new Action, click on the New Icon in the Actions panel, give it a name and then click on the Record dot icon when you are ready to record your action. After you’ve finished, press the Stop square icon to let Photoshop know you are done. Your action can now be used by highlighting it in the Actions panel and pressing the Play icon.
