Hello, in this tutorial you will learn how to use actions in photoshop. Actions, although not very well know, are extremely useful and they can cut the time it takes you to do something in half or more! This example will show you how i add my text and logo to all of my images.
First open an image 500x500. Fill the background by going edit>FIll>black. Now in your history pallete, click on the actions tab. it looks like below:
Now Click on your
set and click the "add new action button. I have it circled
in the image below. Name this action adding text. Then press record.
Note, this is just so you can learn what an action is. You can delete
this action at the end if you wish and make your own.
Now, Open a new document, fill the background with grey. After this is done go to your actions pallete, click on "adding text action" which is under your action set. Press play and watch what happens. If you have done it correctly, it should add the text for you. Yes, actions are wonderful. You can create your own actions by repeating the same process! Another great example of this use could be to add your own watermarks into your images. This will prevent people from taking your images because they will have a copyright on them.
