Join Julieanne Kost for an overview of the Actions panel, including loading and playing actions on images.
- [Voiceover] One of the best ways…to automate tasks in Photoshop is by creating actions.…Actions can be a single command…or a series of commands…that are recorded and can then be played back at other times…or on other images.…Now, your actions are recorded and stored…on the Actions panel.…So under the Window menu,…I'll chose Actions,…and then I'll click on the chevrons here…in order to expand that panel.…Photoshop automatically loads a default set of actions.…
Now, a set of actions is just a folder of actions.…We can use the disclosure triangle…in order to see all of the individual actions…within that set.…You can make as many actions as you want,…as well as as many sets as you want,…but you just need to know that all actions need to be…inside of a set or inside of a folder.…You can't have them just loose on the Actions panel.…Now, along with this default set of actions,…Photoshop has a number of additional actions…that you can load by using the fly-out menu here…and then selecting them from the list.…
So let's take a look at a few of these actions.…
