One of the best ways to speed up your post processing workflow is to make use of Photoshop actions and Lightroom presets. Actions and presets make it easy to quickly apply a certain effect, or to perform certain steps in the editing process.

While the results will vary a little bit from one photo to the next, actions and presets can at least serve as a starting point for your own tweaks and customizations, and in some cases the action or preset will be all that you will need.

In this post we’ll focus on Photoshop and actions that you can download for your own use. Of course, you can buy collections of Photoshop actions or create your own, but there are also some free actions that are available. Free actions can be a great way to try different effects and experiment, and they can also serve as helpful learning resources. If the actions leave the layers and adjustment layers in tact you can learn a lot about how a specific look or effect is created.

With that in mind, here are 35 free actions and sets of actions that you may appreciate.
