Use a great number of actions in PS when processing images. Signatures, sizing and converting to jpg, creating D&B layers with helper layers, different color grading and atmosphere, frequency seperation for 8 bit and 16bit images. Probably have at least 100 of which 25 are the most used. Most of the actions are 2-5 layers but do have some that encompass at least 10 layers and go back and adjust each of those 10 layers to produce the feeling that I'm after.I was wondering what kind of PS action do you guys use for your photography need
Do the same, Use an action to create a Dodge (curve) and a seperate Burn curve and then couple of helper layers and place them all in a group. So much easier to just run the action instead of creating 4 separate curve layers , modifying the curves and then place in a group, with the action, one click creates the 4 layers and then place them all in a group. Also have actions to take the processed Tiff, save it and then resize, convert colorspace to srgb and save as jpg. Once you play with the process so much of a timesaver.I write an action for anything I do routinely. I have more than 100 in several groups.
Flatening an image, saving it in two sizes with different appropriate sharpening- a large tiff and a small jpg- all with one click, just as an example.
Many of my black and white looks, warming or cooling an image- actions. I even use an action to dodge and burn.
I often make a couple of actions just for a group of images I am working on, then erase when I am done.
Saves a ton of time- especially when you can batch.
Easy, once you get the hang of it.
