Photoshop Actions

Photoshop Actions are some of the hottest selling items available on Envato Market. These actions provide an easy way to create a complex graphic effect with any image in a matter of moments. They often include built-in controls to enable you to customize the appearance of the final effects. In this quick video we explore how to install and use the popular Fracture Photoshop Action.

 

What Is a Photoshop Action?

In Photoshop, actions allow for the recording and playback of a series of steps. So you can quickly apply a recorded effect without having to reproduce those steps manually. This can be a huge time-saving device as you can identify repetitive tasks in your workflow and record these steps as a custom action.
