Once you have created an action, it is important that you try it out several times before you save it. This way, you can find any bugs that need to be fixed early on, and not come across them later when you are trying to save time. In this video, Richard Harrington demonstrates how to test and correct actions that have been created in Adobe Photoshop.
- Once you've made an action, it's a good idea…to try it out several times before you save it.…I'll go back to Bridge and open up a few images.…Let's go to the condition actions here…and I'll open up a handful of photos.…Now, I'm going to try that stylized blur.…I'll click the play button…and watch it play black.…I see that all the steps appear to be running…and in a moment, it'll show me the finished results.…
And there it is.…Let's take a look.…Well, what I have here is a new file…and the original is right next to it.…So that step of creating a new image definitely worked.…If I take a look, I've got a new document…and I've got the original file.…Looks good.…Let's go ahead and try another image in that collection.…And I'll select the action and click play.…
Now in this case, it's a different orientation of the photo.…So I expect that the action…might not give the exact result that I want.…It looks good, but I'd like a little more control.…So I'm going to close this and we're going to tweak things.…So let's get rid of this new version here…
