25 Brilliant Photoshop Actions & Action Sets For Photographers

Marc Andre by Marc Andre on

Photoshop can be a photographer’s best friend, but most photographers would prefer to spend less time editing their photos and more time shooting.

One of the keys to being able to get the most out of Photoshop without spending all of your time sitting at the computer is to improve your efficiency in Photoshop. Actions can be a great way to speed up your workflow by applying various types of effects with just a click of the mouse.

When it comes to Photoshop actions you have a few different options. You can create your own actions for the types of effects that you use the most. You can purchase professional actions from any number of websites, including Contrastly. Or, you can download pre-made actions that are available for free.

One of the down sides to using free actions is that it can take a lot of time to browse the internet to find the right actions that you want to use. With that in mind, we’ve gathered this collection of 25 free actions and action sets that you can download and use today without the need to scour lots of different sites to find them.
