20 Must Have Photoshop Actions

A Photoshop action is a series of commands that you can record and later play back. For example, you can create an action which automatically sharpens your image. Each time you need to sharpen your image, you can simply press one button and somebody at Adobe will do the work for you.

Photoshop actions are a huge time saver. Let’s say you need to watermark a set of 500 images. Are you going to put your logo on every single image by hand? I hope not. Instead you can create a single action that will do the work for you while you count your blessings.

Today I collection some of my favorite actions sets from the talented individuals on Creative Market. Without any doubt, these actions will save you more than 15% on your car insurance. Enjoy!
