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 select an action? In this video, Richard Harrington explains how the Action panel works, and walks through using it in Adobe Photoshop.
- One of the foundations of automation in Photoshop…are Actions.…Actions is Photoshop's own proprietary way of recording…what you do on-screen,…so you can play back the action, later.…When done correctly,…these can be huge time savers,…and also can add consistency to your work flow.…Let's start by using some of the built-in Actions,…to get familiar.…Go ahead and launch Photoshop,…and then from the file menu, choose open.…Navigate to your desktop, and select the exercise files…that you downloaded.…
Or, if you stored them in another location,…just navigate there.…I'm going to go into Folder One, here,…and open up One-One,…and the file called Actions.nef, and click open.…This'll open up a raw file and the develop settings…should already be set.…Feel free to click "open image," and it should come in.…Now, from the window menu, choose workspace essentials.…And then, window, workspace, reset.…
This way, the layout on the screen should match…what you're seeing here.…Now, go into the window menu and bring up the Actions panel.…
