Free Photoshop Actions here at PhotographyPla.net. We have hundreds of Photoshop actions that are available for purchase, but we also want to give out some freebies that can be used at no cost. Over the past few years, we’ve released a number of free actions, and we plan to continue to add more in the future. This post is a collection of 30 free Photoshop actions that you can download with no strings attached and use them with your photos, even with commercial photos.

What is an Action?

An action is a series of tasks that you play back on a single file or a batch of file. This can include menu commands, panel options, tool actions, and so on. For example, you can create an action that changes the size of an image, applies an effect to the image, and then saves the file in the desired format.

Actions can include steps that let you perform tasks that cannot be recorded (for example, using a painting tool). In addition, actions can also include modal controls that let you enter values in a dialog box while playing an action.

In Photoshop, actions are the basis for droplets, which are small applications that automatically process all files that are dragged onto their icon.

Using PreDefined Actions

Photoshop and Illustrator come with predefined actions installed that help you perform common tasks. As a result, you can use these actions as is, customize them to meet your needs, or create new actions. Actions are stored in sets to help you organize them.

Most noteworthy, you can record, edit, customize, and batch-process actions, and you can manage groups of actions by working with action sets.

The actions found here will all work in Photoshop CS4 and newer. If you’re not familiar with the process of installing and using Photoshop actions please see our text and video instructions here.
