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 to set up all the layers you need.

You need your Photoshop Action panel and layers panel open.

I have designed every step of the action commands to adapt to your image. LSP Actions leave 100% room for flexibility and are non-destructive to your background layer. The open layers included mean you can tweak, reverse engineer and adapt if you like to suit your tastes even further. If you do not have experience in using Photoshop actions, please refer to the LSP online video tutorials. You can also find more information about using Photoshop Actions on Adobe's website here.

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

Though these LSP Overlays have been designed to the highest professional standards, many beginners find these so user-friendly.

It is important to have a working knowledge of Photoshop for best results as the actions require some experience in using the Photoshop actions and layers panel.

The video tutorials walk you through step by step. I recommend watching the video tutorial first if in doubt to see if it is something you could do.

Please note: A working knowledge of Photoshop means you will be able to get started quicker in using these. If you are a complete beginner, please follow the video tutorials step-by-step. Lauren at LSP Actions cannot personally walk you through using these, but support is provided in the LSP Actions Facebook Group,

There is a lot of information online about using Photoshop actions, layers and brushes at

Can I use these on images that already have a sky, or are these best suited to blown-out white skies?

The sky overlays are best used with blown-out white sky images. So you can easily replace the boring grey or white area with a pretty sky.

You can use these sky overlays as a complete sky replacement, but please note that some manual hand editing will be required that is not covered by the LSP Actions video tutorials. In this event, I recommend you use the latest version of Photoshop Creative Cloud and the Sky Replacement option within Photoshop.

Can I enter the images edited with these into competitions?

You are allowed to use the overlays on your images. But it depends on the rules of the competition. Some competitions do not allow you to enter into awards using overlays or elements that are not created by yourself so please check carefully.
