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!
