Free Photoshop Actions for Photographers

Free Photoshop Actions for Photographers | Drawing References and Resources | Scoop.it

"Photographers have special interest in Photoshop actions because these ready effects help them to apply different photography effects to their image without the need to have special filters or take the photos in specific weather conditions. For example, you can apply actions that can make your photo colors more warm. Also, you can apply actions that give photos retro or polarized effects.


The Photoshop actions do not only save your time and effect, but also help you to apply complex effects by simply import its ACT file to Adobe Photoshop. Then, you will  see the actions listed in the Actions panel, and all you need is to select and apply it to the current open files. Also, you can apply actions to bulk images or specific folder using the Automate > Batch command in the File menu."

Jerome Okutho's insight:

Adobe Photoshop CS6 Cheat Sheet | Drawing References and Resources | Scoop.it
Jerome Okutho's insight:

It's no secret that Adobe Photoshop is the most powerful photo editing software in the world. Anyone who's used Photoshop will tell you that the learning curve is quite steep and that it takes a while to learn how to use all the tools and features.

I've been using Photoshop for almost three years now, and I've found that the best way to use the software is to take advantage of the keyboard shortcuts. The latest release of Photoshop has a few new shortcuts, all of which are explained in this elegant cheat sheet. Memorize these shortcuts and you'll be a Photoshop expert in no time!

A very easy to use cheat sheet. Every shortcut you need or can think of is on this page. Also, there is a little tutorial on the bottom that can help you understand the shortcuts.

Tyler Kempa's curator insight, April 16, 2014 4:25 PM

I use Photoshop occasionally but I've never paid any attention to the keyboard shortcuts. This will definitely help me work faster. I use it on a PC and the picture shows a Mac keyboard layout but the shortcuts should be the same.
