Chapter 29. Actions and Automation > Working with Actions

Working with Actions

An Action can be played on a selection, an image, or even a folder filled with images (using the Batch command). The Action can run while you're away from the computer—even at home, fast asleep—or you can sit at the keyboard and make changes to how the Action is applied to each image.

Running an Action

In a nutshell, you select the Action in the Actions palette and click on the Play button at the bottom of the palette. Some Actions require that a selection be made first to identify a part of the image with which to work. Other Actions may require that a type layer be available or that an image meet minimum or maximum size requirements. Color mode can also be a factor, especially when an Action applies a filter or uses an Adjustment command.
