45 Amazing and Free Photoshop ActionsPublished in Tools
Photoshop actions allow designers and photographers to automate common sequences for increased efficiency. If you do much work with photo editing you can certainly benefit from the time saved by having a good library of Photoshop actions. There are so many different types of actions that you can use from vintage effects, to black and white, to HDR and much more.
There are countless actions available that can be downloaded for free, and in this post we’ll feature 45 of them. Some of these are individual actions and others are sets that include multiple actions.
In addition to free actions, you can also get high quality premium actions at sites like PhotographyPla.net, GraphicRiver, and Creative Market. In this post, though, we will focus exclusively on free actions. These actions have been created by various designers and photographers and have been made available for free download. Many of them are available through deviantART, although some are available at the site of the creator of the actions.
Keep in mind that while Photoshop actions can be extremely useful and helpful, the results will vary from one photo to the next. Not every photo will look great with every action. Experiment with them and you’ll get a good feel for which actions work best with certain types of photos. One of the nice things about premium actions is that most of them are editable and can be customized to work with your specific photo.
