Chapter 20. Automate

An action is a recorded sequence of menu commands, tool operations, or other image-editing functions that can be played back on a single file, a group of files, or a folder full (batch) of files. Actions are especially useful for producing consistent editing results on multiple images. For example, you could use an action to apply a series of Adjustment submenu commands or a sequence of filters. You could also save a sequence of concise steps into an action to prepare multiple images for print output, or to convert multiple images to a different file format or image mode.

An action can be anything from a simple keyboard shortcut to an incredibly complex series of commands that trigger still other actions, or that process a whole batch of images. Actions can help you save seconds or hours of work time, depending on how you use them. Start by recording a few simple actions. You’ll be programming more complex processes and boosting your productivity in no time.
