The Actions panel in Adobe Photoshop allows you to run both pre-built actions and create custom actions. What does using the Actions panel look like? How do you create your own custom actions? In this video, Richard Harrington walks through creating an action in Adobe Photoshop.
- Let's explore the process of creating…a custom Action from scratch.…I want to experiment a bit…and show you how I can save my experiments as an Action.…From folder 1.3 go ahead and open up the two images.…I've also included in that folder…some Actions that you can see.…Just double-click on them to load…or use the load command.…Here are some Actions that I've created.…Now I'm going to throw a few of these away…to make a little more room.…
I can just drag these into the trash…and they're unloaded from the system.…I'll just Shift + click to select a range there.…And you'll see a few options here.…For example, Notepaper Sketch.…Let's crop this photo first,…just going to remove the person from the frame,…and I'll click play.…And the Action performs several complex steps.…
Now in this case some of the things…aren't creating the desired look.…For example, the Oil Paint Plugin…might not be available on your system.…So I'm going to remove that and throw it away…and you see that it changes.…Now every one of these steps can be modified.…
