In this roundup, I’ve scoured the web for 100 of the best free Photoshop actions for your ease of use. We’ll also take a look at our best premium PSD actions and add-ons. For beginners, we’ll start off with a brief explanation of how to create and install Photoshop actions. Let’s dive in!

What Are Photoshop Actions?

A Photoshop action is a tool which can perform a series of steps and settings to perform a task or apply a creative photo effect in Photoshop. A Photoshop action replays a set of instructions in seconds which may otherwise task minutes to hours to complete. Therefore, Photoshop actions can also be extremely useful time-savers when you find yourself performing the same steps on all of your images.

You can check out our ten favourites on our Envato Tuts+ YouTube channel or continue below for our big 100:

How to Create an Action in Photoshop

You’d be surprised how quickly you can learn how to create an action in Photoshop. Open up the Actions panel and click the New Action button seen in the image below. (Tip: If you can’t see the Actions panel, click Window, then click Actions. This will add the Actions button to the panel dock.)

create new photoshop actioncreate new photoshop actioncreate new photoshop action

This should pop open a new window containing various options for the photo action. Here you can name the action and place it in a set. You can also assign a keyboard shortcut that will activate the action immediately in Photoshop. This is quite handy for those actions you find yourself using on a daily basis.

naming and recording photoshop actionsnaming and recording photoshop actionsnaming and recording photoshop actions

Once you click Record in the window above, all that’s left is to carry out the steps you’d like to be recorded in the photo action. Keep in mind that selection sizes, saving, and other very specific steps will be replicated exactly in the action. Try to keep your steps generic enough that they’ll work on the full range of images you’ll need the action to apply to.

When you’ve finished carrying out all the desired steps, click the Stop button in the action menu. You can click the Play button to perform the action on another file.

How to Install Photoshop Actions

There are multiple ways to install Photoshop actions. For starters, you can drag the downloaded actions into the Actions folder contained within the Photoshop Presets folder in your Photoshop application folder. Note that actions placed here may require a Photoshop restart to appear in the Actions menu.
