Join Julieanne Kost to discover how to record multistep actions to select, crop, and change image size.
- [Narrator] Most of the time, people think that an action…has to take a file from start to finish.…But you can save a lot of time by recording small,…multi-step actions that help combine several steps into one.…So, let's create a new set of actions.…And I'll name this 'Multi Step.'…And then, I want to record an action…that clears away any extra information…that's beyond the canvas area.…Because when I'm finished with a file…and I want to keep the file size down,…I tend to get rid of any extra information.…
And in this image,…we can see that there's extra information…if I go Free Transform.…We can see that I can actually reposition this image.…And in fact, let's do that.…Let's bring it up a little bit, maybe to right about there,…and then apply that transformation.…So it's all of the information…that's beyond the canvas area that I want to get rid of.…So I'll create my first action,…click on the 'new action' icon in the actions panel.…I'll name this 'Crop Excess.'…I'll put it in the Multi Step set,…I'll leave the others at their default, and click record.…
