Video tutorial on how to use action in Photoshop in simple language

Action is one of the useful features of Photoshop that allows you to record your work steps and in the future you can execute the same steps without repeating with a simple click and use it.

The process in Photoshop is called an action or command. In using action, graphic designer or other user does not need to go through all the steps you have gone through, it is enough to apply your design on your project with one click to achieve the result you have achieved. .

How to upload predefined actions?

Photoshop-ready actions are contained in a set of files in the Action folder. You can open and use predefined actions. They include Frames, Text Effects and Image Effects, ie text and effects. Using the LAB-Black and White techniques is a great way to turn a color photo into black and white. Oil Pastel action is a great way to turn a photo into a drawing mode.
