The Ultimate Collection Of Useful Photoshop Actions

Advertisement

Saving repetitive tasks as Photoshop actions can save you a lot of time, allowing you to automate your work and improve workflow efficiency. A Photoshop action is a recording of a sequence of commands and operations that you can save and access later on.

We’ve searched for the best downloadable Photoshop actions that can help you improve your workflow and perform complex techniques with the push of a button. In this collection, you’ll find more than 350 free hand-picked Photoshop actions that you can use to speed up your graphics creation.

Note: It’s important to check the license of each action set you download and use.

Quick Introduction to Photoshop Actions

For those unfamiliar with Photoshop actions, they’re simply pre-recorded tasks that you can save and reuse anytime. Photoshop actions commonly have an .atn file extension. Installing a Photoshop action for more recent versions of Photoshop is easy: simply drag the .atn file onto the Actions palette or place it directly inside your Adobe PhotoshopPresetsPhotoshop Actions folder. For a more comprehensive discussion of Photoshop actions, check out this complete guide to Photoshop actions.

  35. 35

    Why do I keep getting the feeling this site’s intended audience is home users (most of which don’t even use legally acquired software)?
    No offense, as it must’ve taken quite some work to get such a collection of links put together, but either only list those actions that can (also) be used commercially, or save your readers the work of having to check out every single action they deem interesting by adding some info on restrictions.

    • 36

      Who are you to say that people don’t use legally obtained software? Don’t let your own guilty conscience convince you that everybody else is a thief too. There is no data to support what you just said and it is offensive for you to assume that. Moron…

  36. 37

    yeah, great!! very useful stuff! thanks so much :)

  37. 38

    A very useful collection. Thanx.

  38. 39

    Thanks.. this encourages me to start experimenting and using actions on PS, that are a forgotten feature to me right now.

  39. 40

    Smashing as usual!

  40. 41

    So useful! Thanks so much!

  41. 42

    Great! Thank you!

  42. 43

    We know some of them and we cann add some more photoshop actions

  43. 44

    I never really like using actions, I prefer creating my own things from scratch…but seeing how AWESOME all of these are and how busy I often am to sit and do my own stuff, Im gonna get every single one of these…Thanks Smashing! Y’all ROCK!

  44. 45

    nice thought roland. i totally agree with you

  45. 46

    awesome stuff. ty

  46. 47

    This is the best post you guys could ever come up with !!

    Love these

  47. 48

    Boring. There is nothing creative using actions. You just click and get instant effects without thinking what happened with your image. Thats why there is a lot of same looking garbage photos everywhere. You can get far beter color and LOMO effects if you spend 5 minutes in Photoshop with open mind. And thats what I call Photoshop Fun.

  48. 49

    Thank you! Great work. Inspiring!

  49. 50

    how can i use the action set? after the instalation i can´t use it in photoshop…

  50. 51

    I wonder, what is the best one out of all of these to enhance quality. I scanned 1500 pictures one by one with a regular scanner (yes, very long and painful process)…Now that it is done, is there any general action that will enhance automatically most pictures? of course, i will do some one by one… but if i am to automate the whole batch, which is best?

  51. 52

    I wrote a tutorial explaining how to create a “batch save” action to save and exit all the open images you have in Photoshop. I think it’s a much more usable action than something like “zany color actions”.

    http://onlinephototutorials.com/2008/07/30/batch-save-using-photoshop/

  52. 53

    very useful indeed :P

  53. 54

    Very nice actions, BUT my suggestion would be to just get Lightroom 2 :)

  54. 55

    super and super and super very useful

  55. 56

    Nice collection, keep up the good work.

  56. 57

    You made my day ^^ Thank you so much!

    Really Nice, Thanks one more time ;)

  60. 61

    I have to agree with upla dupla, there isn’t much that these actions do that can’t be done with some basic Adjustments. Additionally these actions are optimized for the photos shown as examples, you’re almost certain to get better results adjusting the photos individually or creating your own action sets for a photo set’s individual lighting and color needs. We’re talking basic photoshopping here, stuff that should be done in the first ten to twenty minutes of working with any image.

  61. 62

    Awesome post, great actions. Thanks for this.

  62. 63

    Great post, Thanks for the actions and keep up the GREAT WORK.

  63. 64

    I normally love your selections … but here i think you mixed quality + quantity .. many of them could be left out

  64. 65

    The best collection of PS actions I have ever come across. Thank You.

    Great post, cross processing is amazing but don’t forget this useful action:-)
    Lightwork Apocalypse action

  69. 70

    this was the best i have sceen so far keep up the good work ….. from Trinidad and Tobago

  70. 71

    excellent list – as always – now its time for that list of AWESOME FREE PS PLUG-INS !!! :-)

  71. 72

    Man, your contribution is magnificent. nice collection, thank you.

  72. 73

    Hey, that’s me! The redhead. The natural redhead, that is.

    Great collection, by the way.

  73. 74

    Smashing comments are very similar to ebay feedback

    ARTICLE WAS AMAZING, WOULD READ AGAIN!!!!!! AA++++++PLUSINFINITY

    Maybe this is the norm on blogs, I don’t read many but the few people saying this collection is not great seem to know the score.

  74. 75

    wouwwwwwwwwwww….supaaa

  75. 76

    Excellent set of actions, what would make this even more useful is if you zipped them all up in one file for download. That would make this excellent page super excellent.

  76. 77

    cool… but do NOT zip’em all together… those to lazy to download them separately don’t deserve them all… :)
    and some might not want them all… or might not even like all of them… :)

    great stuff, tanx!

  77. 78

    Buenísima recopilación. Muchas gracias

  78. 79

    great page, but are these just for home use or can they potentially be used for commercial use?

  79. 80

    To all you guys who bash the use of actions:
    You obviously have never experienced a real deadline before.

    Awesome list, just what I needed right now. :3

  80. 81

    Quakeulf is right. Actions are a life saver in a rush job. I can definitely try these out for future projects.

    Thank you!

  180. 182

    I know this is a late comment, but did you know that actions are only the tip of the iceburg for Photoshop tools? Scripting starts where actions end. Using JavaScript, VB, XML, and XMP, extends the capabilities of Photoshop (After CS3), far beyond actions. Actions are great, but barley getting started in comparison.

  181. 183

    This might sound stupid but do any of these work with Photoshop Elements? Thanks. :]

  182. 184

    Thnaks a mil for sharing, I just know some of these are going to make my life alot easier.
    Thank You !!!!!

  183. 185

    Fantastic set! Thanks for this.

    Thanks for those useful photoshop actions. They will surely come in handy very soon :) They really could give our Twitter backgrounds that special touch.
    I am eager to try the lomo and HDR effects. Until then we already have a fair amount of great backgrounds in our collection on viuu.co.uk .

  185. 187

    Here’s another very useful action. It transforms a photo into a sketch:

  194. 196

    Why do I keep getting the feeling this site’s intended audience is home users (most of which don’t even use legally acquired software)?
    No offense, as it must’ve taken quite some work to get such a collection of links put together, but either only list those actions that can (also) be used commercially, or save your readers the work of having to check out every single action they deem interesting by adding some info on restrictions.

    thanks 4 this… (^_^) i like it

  201. 203

    Great set of resources. Thanks for sharing.

  202. 204

    collection of the same deviantart actions for the 50th time. since 3 years there isn´t anymore a big change in the top-list of deviantart. that lead us directly to the fact, that if you just copy and paste the most popular actions, you might look like all the 49 blogs did before you.

    even generating traffic with other people afford is pretty something. but giving the possibillity to a direct download, instead of just a link to the artists page is in fact uncrediting artists.

    my advise: just try to create something by yourself instead of generating traffic with something you haven´t done.
    btw: you not even help or support the artists with this blog, cause the top list of deviantart have got enough pageviews anyways.

    FAKE

  203. 205

    To many with error messages to be able to download. Thanks anyway.

  204. 206

    <3 <3 <3 . ha, awessoomeee!

  205. 207

    These are so awesome!!!!!!! THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!

  206. 208

    Yeah, a lot of these are pretty great.

    One think people need to realize, however is they are not auto-amazing-picture actions. Yes, the creative color can add a lot of interest to your image. However, a lot of these actions induce haloing, chromatic/luminosity noise, and loss of detail in your picture. These actions are best used in conjuction with elements of the original image. Careful masking and layer blending will help you make the most out of these actions.

    Also, try combining actions. ie If you really like the way the yellows come out in one version, blend those into a purple version you made with a different action.

  207. 209

    Although this is a year 2008 post, but it’s still the best collection of these photo filters. Love everything posted here!

  221. 223

    Hi there, thanks for sharing a would like to add to the list a website with lots of free and premium presets:

  226. 228

    Been looking for a site with the Vintage looking purple/pink flushed out look…and finally found it!!
    Thank you for putting this post together!!

    except now..how do I install the .atn files?

  227. 229

    Most of the links go no where but a few do and for those I thank you. I am new to photoshop but I can tell you deviantart will never get my business, not because they are wrong but I got tired of seeing their little avatar telling me to get lost, then clicking back and waiting for the page to load. Someone needs to clean this mess up.

  228. 230

    You need to check your links. A lot of them don’t work any more. Thanks for the other links :)

  229. 231

    Thanks to the world of new technology, thanks to Adobe PhotoShop which has made anything about pictures so easy. I want to be updated on photoshop picture or photo effect . Please I want latest updates to be sent to the above stated email address. Thanks.

  230. 232

    Hey guys, do you know how I can create an action where I turn layers on and on in a succession, saving images of every step of the way? Thanks!

  231. 233

    Awesome! Thanks!

  232. 234

    Lots of broken links in this article. Mostly the ones I really wanted, too! :(

  234. 236

    Do these work in photoshop elements 10? they are fantastic! thanx for sharing!

  235. 237

    I still don’t understand how I can record my own set of actions for future use. I am making up several photobooks which will contain as many as 1000 images in total. I therefore need to
    image/image size/resolution 200/width 1000,save as
    Lots of times

  236. 238

    Great list! Its always nice to see different takes on different styles. Editing can be a very artful thing to many photographers who use it to explain how they were feeling during a shoot. colorvaleactions.com

    Thanks for sharing.
