50+ Handpicked Free Photoshop Actions and Installation Guide


Today I’m sharing a big collection of ready-made Adobe Photoshop Actions. If you don’t know what actions do in Adobe Photoshop, here’s a little description.

An action is a set of recorded commands that you may use on several images for a particular purpose. For example, you are getting a photo album ready for a website, and you have to sharpen, resize and add a few effects on every image. If there are over a thousand images… you’ll get old just completing one photo album.
Actions come to save the day – you can record these three commands in an Action and apply all of them instantly without having to all the work again n’ again.

If you have studied our free Adobe Photoshop ebook then you’d already know how to use these actions. But, if you haven’t, here’s a nifty little tutorial to get you going.

To be honest, I should say that I haven’t checked all of these actions myself; but they all seem to be working.

This is also an untouched topic at Designzzz. My God, how do I find so many new topics.


Don’t know how to load actions into Photoshop?? Here’s how:

  • Open the Actions palette.


  • Click on Load Actions and browse to the ATN file.


There you go, that’s all you need to do. Have fun.

    Thank you for sharing so much stuff… I really do enjoy your web site…. other sites can be somewhat confusing to navigate but Designzzz has become a favorite… I spend hours reading and looking… my mind is like a sponge… cant keep up at times with so much information but your website makes it easy, fun and you inspire me to want to absorb it all!!

    1. Tayyab November 19, 2011 at 4:22 am

      Thanks a lot @tizzr for the warm remarks.
      Hey, is there anything you’d like us to do to further improve Designzzz? maybe the some change in the content or design, or should we carry on with what we are doing right now?

    These are great! I have never really had the time to figure out how to use actions, but after seeing these, I plan to. Unfortunately, I have tried downloading several and I get the message at the bottom of my screeen saying the file could not be downloaded – although it appeared that it was.

    1. Tayyab November 26, 2011 at 12:09 pm

      maybe you’re having trouble with DeviantArt, you should try to download the complete pack by clicking “Download Actions” button on this page.

  12. rkrambs November 26, 2011 at 1:14 pm

    Oh my! Now, I have more than I will ever know what to do with! :) thanks so much! I knew it had to be something simple.
