Layouts With Actions

Actions are a tool that saves time when working in Photoshop by automating repetitive tasks. They can also be used for reproducing techniques and creating special effects that can be shared with other Photoshop users. Here you’ll find previously published layouts that feature the use of a variety of actions to speed workflow and enhance layouts. For additional photo techniques using actions, plug-ins and filters, read Jen Adams Donnelly and Molly Newman’s feature “The Art of the Imperfect” in Digital Scrapbooking magazine’s August/September 2008 issue.
