What are Photoshop Actions?

Photoshop Actions are a series of pre-recorded editing steps that you can "play" over your image using Adobe Photoshop on your computer. It's like watching an invisible editor take over your screen for a fraction of a second! 

I have designed every step of the action commands to adapt to your image. LSP Actions are non-destructive to your background layer and the open layers included mean you can tweak, reverse engineer and adapt if you like to suit your tastes even further.

I'm a beginner, is this suitable for me?

Absolutely! Beginners find this action panel is so user-friendly you can get started right away, wherever you are in your photography journey.

What is the refund policy?

Please note, this is a digital download. Once you purchase and have downloaded, the file is on your computer and in use, so it cannot be returned as a physical object would. Your download is non-revocable from my end. You have access for life.

But equally, I'm not a monster! So... 

If WITHIN 10 DAYS OF PURCHASE, you don't love this set or have any issues at all, just reply to your order confirmation email so we can help you out. If you can send screen shots or a shot video to show any issue you might have, this will be super helpful and means we can help faster and make sure you get the very best out of this collection. 

But if you still don't love the actions after we have assisted you and you initially contacted within 10 days of order, then of course, we will refund you. Our customer happiness is the most important thing to us :-)

At LSP Actions, we pride ourselves on over 20,000 ecstatic customers, which has landed us number 1 worldwide for the "Best Professional Photographic Software" award the last 4 years in a row and placed top for customer service world-wide! We have never been asked for a refund on the basis the product wasn't suitable or as described. I hope this reassures you. 

I'm already good at editing, do I need this?

LSP Actions are designed by award-winning editing tutor Lauren Bennett are used by some of the world's best photographers to achieve stunning results, fast. Ana Brandt, Gary Hill, Paulina Duczan, Natasha Ince, Cassie Clayshulte, Amanda Voller to mention but a few. 

Many photographers find they can hand edit fine, they have their style, but it still takes too long and they need to speed up client turnaround and make the business more efficient and to trust that the gallery will be consistent across the board. 

I've been let down by cheaper actions in the past, are these really worth it?

I get it... the actions and presets world is unregulated and full of companies offering the world, but delivering a let-down. I agree, you have every right to be wary! 

There is a reason LSP Actions was voted "Best Professional Photographic Software" the last four years in a row and is used by some of the world's best photographers to achieve stunning results. To put it simply, LSP Actions work. On all images. Exactly as they say they do. 

We are committed to setting an industry standard for the highest quality Actions and Presets available to you and have help and support available to help you get the very best out of this action set.

Can I enter the images edited with these actions into competitions?

Yes! Many photographers who use the LSP Actions are finding their images are doing better in photography competitions and are winning awards.
