Actions are Photoshop's oldest and most essential form of automation. Simply put, an action is a recorded sequence of events. Record the action, test it to make sure it works and it may serve you well for years to come, from one version of Photoshop to the next. As I'm fond of saying, invest an hour or two in actions now, and your future self lying on a beach while Photoshop works away, will thank you. In this chapter, I introduce you to the Actions palette and show you how to record an action and play it back, plus lots of other cool stuff. I even have an embedded music video. I know! I don't usually do that.
