I have questions...

What exactly are Photoshop Actions. Are they like a filter or a plug in?

If you are not using Photoshop Actions to help speed up and streamline your editing, you're missing out on a HUGE time-saving, image perfecting technique.


Unlike plug-ins, extensions, scripts or other external image editing software, Photoshop Actions are already a built-in feature of Photoshop meaning they are simple, user friendly and intuitive to use without degrading or diminishing the quality of your work. In a nutshell, Photoshop comes with the capability to 'record' a series of steps taken when editing an image and to save these steps to play again and again on different images. This is called an action. You can play the action every time you wish to recreate these steps on a new image. 


 BOOM - can I get a High Five?


The LSP Photoshop Actions take this not just one step further, but in leaps and bounds ahead of others to make sure you never have a bad editing day again


Some of the LSP Actions play upwards of 300 separate clicks to set up layers for you in just a few seconds... imagine how long this would take you in real time! I mean, I did do this in real time to create the actions  and trust me, it is a slow and painful process.


You will need Adobe Photoshop to run these actions. Once you install your LSP Action set into Photoshop, it will always be there for you whenever you wish to use it and however you wish to apply it. You can use LSP Actions for a complete edit, a part edit or only sometimes - it's up to you! 


I'm a beginner, can I use these?

WATCH THE VIDEO: How To Use Photoshop Actions 


Don't edit another gallery without LSP Actions installed! Because even beginners find they can create professional images far quicker by using the actions than by guess-work or trying to figure Photoshop out.


The LSP Actions can be used by beginners and experts alike - but it is recommended you have at least a basic understanding of Photoshop and know your way around the program to some degree to give yourself the best head start. Within this, it's recommended you have some knowledge of how to use Layer Masks, though the actions come with a mini instruction guide on layer masks and you can also watch the videos and edit along anytime by visiting LSP Actions on Youtube.


You can see and play your LSP Actions by opening up the actions palette (see below for more help). Then you simply click on an action (ie Reduce The Reds) and it will play out as a separate layer with a layer mask. You then paint this on to your image as you like. You can leave it as it is, or you can play with the opacity of the effect, play again for a stronger effect, edit it yourself if you wish... the freedom with LSP Actions is phenomenal for beginners and experts alike.


 So, if you know how to use layer masks and brushes in Photoshop, you'll already have a head start on using Photoshop Actions. 


BONUS You can also learn from the actions as you go, meaning you will become more proficient at hand editing in Photoshop too, without even feeling like you're learning ! 

I've tried other actions in the past and they weren't good enough... How can I trust LSP will work for me?

Not all Photoshop Actions are created equally, and unfortunately some people get burnt purchasing sub-standard products.


With the simplicity and seemingly straight-forward look of LSP compared to the astonishing results you see other photographers post, you would be forgiven for thinking that this is too good to be true. Well, don't let the intuitive interface, fast run time, simple layout or ease of use kid you into thinking these actions are basic - LSP Actions are anything but!


Designed by award winning newborn photographer, artist and graphic designer Lauren Bennett at Lemon Sky Photography and recently joined by Ana Brandt International, you'll find each LSP Action set comes with a knowledge of 15 years graphic design combined with a large scoop of award winning photography and a generous pinch of programming geekiness (with a side of pure pixel-nerd).


• LSP Actions are user tested on thousands of images to guarantee they work exactly as told, even on your images. The LSP Actions are also updated regularly and you will receive the new versions for free once you own the set. 


• One off purchase: Lifetime means lifetime here! 


• No memberships, no extra payments, no hidden costs.


• Award nominated customer support, including membership of the exclusive facebook group with over 5,000 members.


 • A little bit like an iceberg, the complex bulk is floating serenely beneath the surface, meaning you can trust LSP does exactly what it says on the button. 


• Real People: Check out the reviews at the bottom of this page and search LSP Actions on facebook to see what others are saying :-)


Oh and guess what? LSP Actions has been awarded WINNER of the BEST PROFESSIONAL PHOTOGRAPHIC SOFTWARE OF THE YEAR in the biggest industry awards of the year the last two years running, down to the votes of other Photographers.


So rest assured, you're in good hands, whether you are a beginner or a rockstar 'tog, I've got your back.

You can create an account and this will automatically add any downloads plus future updates - just be sure to register with the same email address you used to purchase with and my system will add all your purchases and downloads because they are linked to your email address.

NEED MORE HELP? Visit this page for more information of how to install Photoshop actions.


TIP - Always download your actions and back the folder up to a secure Drive should you need them again in the future. 



How to I view the LSP Actions in Photoshop?

The actions palette is built into Photoshop. 


If you can't see it, simply go up to "WINDOW" and select "ACTIONS" - Now your action palette will magically appear and ready to use.


You can also use the shortcut keys [ALT] + [F9] to make your action palette appear.


I like to make sure the actions palette is dragged into a tall, narrow column so all the actions appear in a list rather than all over the place :) Simply click the side and drag it in! 


You can watch this video: How to use Photoshop Actions to see how 

Your Actions are color coded, but mine look grey. How can I get the colours?

I've set the Actions into workflow order and also color coded them into sections for ease of use. This view mode is known as "Button Mode". 


There are two ways of viewing Actions in Photoshop:


Editing Mode: This default view mode appears grey. It is laid out in a way which means you can open the action files to see what's inside them and alter the actions. When using this mode, you will need to choose an action then click 'play' in order to run the action. When you are on this mode, it's easy to accidentally alter your actions (toggling) so they no longer work properly, or to click them and accidentally open them up to show every single command (which looks very messy!)


Button mode: This view mode is where you can see the colors I have set in workflow order. You can simply click directly on an action to play it. 


To view in button mode, go to the top of your actions palette and you will see four little lines in the top right corner [ ≣ ] Click this and select "Button Mode"


You will now be able to view and use your actions in color coded one-click order 😊



I've lost my actions, can I re-download them?

Sure you can!


VIA EMAIL: When you make a purchase at LSP Actions, you will immediately receive a download link at checkout upon payment. You will also receive an email confirmation within 5 minutes of purchase and a download link to retrieve your digital products. You can access this email whenever you like. (This email will be sent to the email address you used to purchase with). So do look back over your inbox. If you can't see an email from me, please run a search of your inbox for "LSP Actions": this should bring up your order email and download link (plus any previous purchases or updates). So long as this is the email address you purchased with, you should have no problem locating your download this way. If you can't find your download link, perhaps you purchased with a different email address.


VIA ACCOUNT: You can also login to your account and download your files at anytime after purchase, (no time limit here, so it's handy if you have a system crash in the future)! Don't have an account? You can create an account and this will automatically add any downloads plus future updates - just be sure to register with the same email address you used to purchase with and my system will add all your purchases and downloads because they are linked to your email address.


DOWNLOAD LINK NOT WORKING / I CAN'T FIND MY DOWNLOAD - Whoops! don't worry. Email support at hello@lsp-actions.com with as much information as possible about your order so I can locate and resend for you. 



My Actions were fine but now they have stopped working

If they were working well before, it means something has been changed (easily done).


Please delete your actions, restart Photoshop and reinstall your actions from your original purchased file. 


Please make sure your corrupt set is definitely deleted before reinstalling.


For any problems like this with the actions, do visit the Troubleshooting Photoshop Actions page on the website and you can also contact support at hello@lsp-actions.com

There are lots of layers, should I save or flatten the picture?

It is important to flatten your image regularly in between actions. If too many action layers build up, it can play havoc with your run time and can cause error messages and program errors. This simply compresses everything you have done so far into one later, keeping things neat and tidy. You can do this by right  clicking the layers and selecting FLATTEN. Or play the Flatten action included :-)


The amount of layers you can have open really does depend on your computer spec' vs how well your version of Photoshop preferences can handle rendering lots of layers. 


Keep things clean and simple. If you worry about flattening please save back-up versions.  Sometimes, similar actions can conflict with each-other if your image isn't flattened.


I recommend flattening every one or two actions to keep things running smoothly and your interface neat and tidy.

My Actions have been updated, where do I find the updated file?

When a LSP Actions product gets updated or altered, I work hard to make sure every customer who owns the set receives the updated version via email as well as to their account.


1. DOWNLOADS AND UPDATES VIA EMAIL: Updated product emails will automatically go out to the original email address you purchased with. If you can't see an email from me, please run a search of your inbox for "LSP Actions": this should bring up your original order email, original download email and any updated product emails since your purchase.  So long as this is the email address you purchased with, you should have no problem locating your download or updated file this way.


2. DOWNLOADS AND UPDATES VIA YOUR ACCOUNT: You can login to your account and download your files at anytime. Your updates will also show in your account. Don't have an account? You can create an account and this will automatically add any downloads or updates from previous purchases, just be sure to register with the same email address you used to purchase with.


3. I STILL CAN'T ACCESS MY DOWNLOAD/UPDATE: Occasionally, there can be an issue that prevents you receiving emails relating to your order or seeing your downloads in your account. Sometimes something simple, such as a typo in the original purchase email address, or your email provider filtering or blocking messages from LSP Actions. It could also be the fact you purchased with a different email address and can't remember which one. 


Occasionally, you might be able to see the download, but access to the link may be broken or invalid. Rare but it can happen! 


If you can't find your download via your inbox or your account, don't worry. Please contact me at hello@lsp-actions.com with as much information as possible about your order so I can locate and resend for you. 


You will receive a tailored auto reply and I also aim to reply personally within 5 business days, but please be aware that due to holidays or family commitments this can be a little longer sometimes.
