You might not think that automation and creativity go hand in hand, but sometimes they do. By automating tasks where appropriate in Photoshop, you can streamline your workflow and free up time to work on the artistic aspects of photography. In this workshop from Photoshop expert Tim Grey, you'll start by learning core automation concepts and using basic automation tools to process multiple images quickly and easily.

Next, you'll explore actions, an incredibly powerful tool for processing one or more images in a consistent way. You'll see how actions let you apply creative effects consistently to your images and prepare images for sharing. Finally, you'll work through a variety of real-world projects that reinforce what you've learned and demonstrate some of the many ways you can employ automation in your own workflow. This Learn by Video workshop is published in partnership with Peachpit Press.
